my ego needs me tonight lyrics – jhelisa

i am the laugh of the fool
thinking that i could win
by breaking all the rules
letting pride get in my way
didn’t care what i would say
hide behind guilty disguise
my ego needs me tonight

i know it gets in the way
but without it i’m afraid
to face another day
the satisfaction explodes
conquering every soul
someday i want to be king
you’ll never know what that means
’cause i’m a man and…

my ego needs me tonight
my ego needs me tonight
my ego needs me tonight
i won’t abandon this fight
don’t care who’s wrong or what’s right
’cause my ego needs me

addictive pseudo-control
i’ll smack you down
if i think you’re on a roll
i just can’t take that chance
i have to forge my romance
the side i want you to see
was really made up for me

can’t you understand that

my ego needs me tonight
my ego needs me tonight
my ego needs me tonight
i won’t abandon this fight
protect my wrong from my right
’cause my ego needs me tonight

i won’t abandon this fight
don’t care who’s wrong or what’s right
’cause my ego needs me

you say coward
i say protection
everybody dances
with their own reflection
overpower the fragrance
occupy the flower
no compromise
no compromise
no surrender
