Stone Cold World (Herring Caroline)

I'm a selfish girl In a selfish world Each town has her selfish ways And each girl has her selfish days Especially me Longing to be free From all the old complaining crew And all the new ones moaning, too Then there was you Smiling when I couldn't smile Drawing me to tears Feeling out these aches and pains Because nothing here comes easy In this stone cold world For a selfish girl You're a pioneer Headed for Newfoundland Each land has his newfound joys And pioneers must be big boys Especially you Longing to be true To what your people came here to do And who your mama said you could be Then there was me Crying when I wasn't sad Slouching in my shoes Damning expectations Because nothing here comes easy In this stone cold world For a selfish girl I saw the tip of an iceberg explode But I'm no tourist in this deep blue sea Off that hard rock shore In this stone cold world For a selfish girl
