I see you across a crowded room
I see you across a crowded room
I see you across a crowded room

And I'm paralyzed
I'm paralyzed
Because you're perfect

I wonder if I'll ever get to talk to you
I wonder if I'll ever get to talk to you
I wonder if I'll ever get to talk to you

When I'm paralyzed
I'm paralyzed
Because you're perfect

When you leave tonight
Your lovely smile and the way you shine
It won't be mine

If all I get is just one day
I'll have to say in every way
You're perfect

I wonder if you'll notice that you changed my life
I wonder if you'll notice that you changed my life
I wonder if you'll notice that you changed my life

And I'm paralyzed
I'm paralyzed
Because you're perfect

When you leave tonight
Your lovely smile and the way you shine
It won't be mine
If all I get is just a day
I'll have to say in every way
You're perfect
You're perfect

    General CommentI heard this song on the Season Finale of Smallville and it seemed to have come at a perfect time in my life (no pun intended).

    I have just recently broke up with a girl who is in my eyes perfect and all I've ever looked for in a person. She just couldn't have a relationship with me at this point in time due to many stressful issues in her life and the last thing she needed to worry about was me and a relationship.

    She told me a few days after the breakup she needed me in her life though and I brought out the best in her . I feel the same about her, then a few days after that she said I cared more for her than she did me and we weren't compatible. That was more devastating than anything. I know she really didn't mean that but needed a way to push me away for her best interests and what she thinks were mine.

    Anyway I want to let her know she's perfect and I don't think any less of her for what she had to do and that she has changed my life for the best in many ways no matter where we end up in life.

    So I think this song is self explanatory; it's about someone you have been with and they are everything you want in a person but in the end it doesn't work out. You see them later down the road and you're still awestruck by how amazing they still are, but you're left paralyzed unable to do anything. You wonder if you can talk to them and you never do. They leave with someone else they are with and you will never will have them and all they are again. But you just want one chance to tell them you still think they are the most amazing person in your life and want them to know how they have changed your life, who you are etc... (for the good).

    Ok I'm sad now. :(
