"Perfect" as written by and Rob Giles Laura Jansen....
All the lights go down around you
and the truth is coming up hard
Feel the way you do, now,
with no excuses
‘Cause you’re perfect just the way you are

Get the feeling that something surrounds you
Give it all up and watch it fly
Speak soft, dear and let it wash over you
‘Cause when you give an inch you walk that mile
and you walk mile so well
‘Cause when you give an inch you walk that mile
and you walk mile so well

Oh
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
Don’t you see?

Those dark dreams of yours
Your drowning eyes
And that sad mouth of yours,
filling up with lies
Don’t believe them, love
When they’re telling you, that you’re not enough
Don’t believe them, love
‘Cause you will not know

You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be, now
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
Don’t you see?

Demons, bells and acrobats
Welcome to the circus inside, your mind
All the world is heavy, I know
Another catastrophe with every shrug of your shoulder
But you don’t have to carry it no more
It’s time you let it go

Just let it go, love
Let it go, love
‘Cause you’re perfect just the way you are

And oh
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be, now
You’re everything you were ever supposed to be
You’re supposed to be
It’s supposed to be easy

    General CommentThis song is perfect. And about being content with who you are, not living in regret, "just let it go."

    General CommentThis song is about that it is ok to be yourself and to feel the things you do. It is not neccesary to think of all the bad things other people could think about you.

    Welcome to the circus inside, your mind
    All the world is heavy, I know
    Another catastrophe with every shrug of your shoulder
    But you don�t have to carry it no more

    This might indicate that the person is worrying about choices/decisions he has to make and that he is afriad to do the 'wrong' thing. But it is ok to make the choices the way you feel, because if you are a good person you'll be fine in the end (and not all catastrophy).
