"Perfectly" as written by and A. Armato T. James....
You're the center of me
And you're a sinner in me
A saint in the wait, but the weight keeps bringing me down

And I'm the beggar of you
You're taking me when you choose
My words of desire are going to set me on fire tonight

'Cause how you leaned on me
And how you'd sing to me
That's what you mean to me,
And it's perfectly you

And You're the end of my nights,
The starting thoughts at sunrise
You've got me changing but the same things are holding me back

But what I do, it's all for you
It's understood you don't like the change
But don't leave me out, I want you now
I'm sorry how I can't turn you away
But you're worth so much, a priceless touch
And I worry, when you're not perfectly you

    The whole song is about how much he loves her and how special she is and everything, but I think this verse is a reference to a fight they had, where she said "I wanna move on with my life/ I can't change for you" and then he says the don't-leave-me-out part, etc. He thinks she is an amazing girl and he loves her, but he worries when they get into these fights, when she is not "perfectly" her.
