"Perfect" as written by and Claire Marigold Wyndham....
I lost my nerve, I went through the night
I can't hold back the tears anymore
Will you promise your little girl one small thing
Please don't go anywhere
I love your face, I love your voice
It gets me through everyday in your love
It wraps around me and it drives me to fear
What I need to feel, to feel


In your eyes is where I look best
In your arms is where I feel healthiest
In your heart is where I'm loved most
You are my hero, yeah, yeah yeah
If I could be like you, I'd be... perfect

The time is now to take a look at the skeletons
In your closet, they hang over you
Like a cloud and they drag you down
And they rain on your parade
Cause I got to thinking what you'd think if I happened to die tomorrow
And if you found out all of the things that went on behind your back
It would hurt you, more than it would hurt me
And if it hurts you it hurts me


Perfect, perfect
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

If I could be like you
