We had a house out in the 'burbs
I made my way up through the firm
Kept the yard nice and pristine
and picture perfect so it seemed

Our welcome matte laid on the floor
we hung a wreath up on the door
but then that letter came unwarned
now perfect isn't very perfect
anymore

We packed our things up in the car
I never shook so very hard
searched the sky for signs of sun
and life had quickly come undone

My wife was crying softly and
the tear stained letter in her hand
cut us both down to the core
now perfect isn't very perfect
No, perfect isn't quite the word for it
Perfect isn't very perfect
Anymore...

    General CommentI am convinced that this song is about losing a child in the war.

    Perfect isn't very perfect anymore. Great line.
