  3. Selfishness denotes the precedence given in thought or deed to self interests and self concerns, the act of placing one's own needs or desires above the needs or desires of others. However it should be noted that by this definition, there can be no selfless deed as unfortunately all good deeds are at the least accompanied with some fame or appreciation or self-gratitude.

    Self-absorbed denotes somewhat a narcissistic person like anon1 here. As you can see, he is too self absorbed to see the topic of discussion, repeating himself to be ghey that he[i safely assume] is.

    Mathematically speaking, if selfish people are Set A and self absorbed is Set B, then for all people x element of Set B, it implies that x is also an element of Set A. Notice however that the opposite doesn't hold true. For example a self absorbed person would prefer personal glory over a team win. A selfish person can decide either way.

    I'm hearing what you say but I just can't make a sound
    You tell me that you need me
    Then you go and cut me down, but wait
    You tell me that you're sorry
    Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

    It's too late to apologize, it's too late
    I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

    I'd take another chance, take a fall
    Take a shot for you
    And I need you like a heart needs a beat
    But it's nothing new
    I loved you with a fire red-
    Now it's turning blue, and you say...
    "Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
    But I'm afraid...

    It's too late to apologize, it's too late
    I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late



    pretty lyrics..eh
    peace
