I am selfish and evil
I wonder about Elizabeth Proctor
I hear the Sunday church starting
I see the love in John Proctor
I want to kill Elizabeth
I am selfish and evil
I pretend to like Elizabeth Proctor
I feel jealous
I touch the madness in my heart
I worry that John will leave me
I cry because of the truth
I am selfish and evil
I understand I believe in my own lies
I say I didn’t make the slave talk to the devil
I dream about a future life with John
I try to not fear God
I hope Elizabeth Proctor leaves John
I am selfish and evil
