"Perfectionist" as written by Landon Pigg and Clif Magness....
You're wonderful
You're good at everything you do
Everyone is equal, but not as equal as you
You're the best
You're the best
And every town's got one, like you

Just take a trip far away
Where no one really cares about those things
Expose yourself to the pleasures and pain of this life
You can let down your guard tonight

Paranoid, perfectionistic people
They can only put their very, very best foot forward
And as a result they're rather easy to detect, they'll be
The only ones hopping down the streets of New York
And every town's got one, like you

Just take a trip far away
Where no one really cares about those things
Expose yourself to the pleasures and pain
If you're walking on the line
You never know what's on either side
You might be wrong or might be right
You can't pass this up, you gotta give it a try

Just take a trip far away
Where no one really cares about those things
Expose yourself to the pleasures and pain of this life
And you can let down your guard

Just take a trip far away
Where no one really cares about those things
And expose yourself to the pleasures and pain
If you're walking on the line
You never know what's on either side
Might be wrong or might be right
You can't pass this up, you gotta give it a try

    General Commentafter listening to this song numerous times, I am virtually certain that these are the lyrics.. contrary to many other sites that post these lyrics. It seems to make a lot more sense this way. . but what do I know. . I'm just a perfectionist trying to get it right. :P

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "pleasures and pain".

    I know someone who's a hardcore perfectionist. Stays up until the wee hours of the morning trying to get it right, while neglecting opportunities to experience life - happiness with another person and so forth. It's really sad to watch.

    General CommentI agree with the_untitled.
    And with every song that this guy writes, I want to know who was in his mind when he wrote them. I'd love to hear the connection one day.

    General Commentawhh i love this song.
    he really admires and wants to be with this girl, woman, lady, whatever. but she is such cautious person he just wishes she could "lay down her guard" and be willing to experience the love and, possibly the pain.
    i mean, to be realistic, not many relationships are going to last forever. but if you aren't willing to risk the pain when it ends, you won't ever experience the beautiful love and connection either while it does last. and he just wishes she would be willing to do that for him.
