Perfection

Note: this song came to me when I was playing random chord patterns on my guitar. Basically, I've been seeing a lot of those over-edited pictures of people kissing or hugging on Facebook, which are captioned something like "Every girl needs a perfect relationship." And every time I see one of these, I'm like: don't be ridiculous. I definitely don't want that.  And that is what this song is about.

Perfection

I know I'm not ready to settle down just yet
I have had the one boyfriend, he turned out to be a douche (no offence)
But anyway, we thought it was going well til my mum got involved
And besides, most of my friends disapproved

You deserve better: a phrase commonly used
When someone politely doesn't like the one you choose
But give them a better if they insist
And trust me they'll still try to say that you deserve better than this

I'm not someone looking for perfection
If I was I'd be looking in the wrong direction
I could recite for you a million signs of affection
But Everybody's looking for perfection
Even though it doesn't exist
It doesn't exist

I am just your average girl
One of so many others in this world
I've made far too many mistakes
How many more can the universe take?
I've got lots of different sides
And some have seen the worst
But no-ones seen them all
'Cause that would be absurd

You deserve better: a phrase commonly used
When someone politely doesn't like the one you choose
But give them a better if they insist
And trust me they'll still try to say that you deserve better than this

I'm not someone looking for perfection
If I was I'd be looking in the wrong direction
I could recite for you a million signs of affection
But Everybody's looking for perfection
Even though it doesn't exist
It doesn't exist

I don't want perfection: it's better to have fun
You don't need perfection to be somebody's one
I don't want perfection: it's better to have fun
You don't need perfection to find the one

And I'm not someone looking for perfection
If I was I'd be looking in the wrong direction
I could recite for you a million signs of affection
Everybody's looking for perfection
Even though it doesn't exist
It doesn't exist
Perfection doesn't exist

The End
