Oh
Oh
Oh...

Maybe I don't say all the right things
Maybe I stumble on my words
Maybe I laugh at all the wrong times
Maybe I mumble and I curse

The last thing I want is to let you down
'Cause all that I want is to make you proud

I can't explain just why I'm acting this way
I can't control it
So I'll go with it
I'm just a girl
I won't be changing the world
And boy you know that I'm not perfect
But I'm perfect for you

Oh
Oh
Oh

I know I don't make all the best moves
And I know sometimes I get weak
But I know that I got nothing to prove
Maybe that's what you love about me

The best I can do is to be myself
And hope it's enough to make your proud

I can't explain just why I'm acting this way
I can't control it
So I'll go with it
I'm just a girl
I won't be changing the world
And boy you know that I'm not perfect
But I'm perfect for you

When you're in the room, my head is clear
You make the world just disappear
So open up your eyes and see

I can't explain just why I'm acting this way
I can't control it
So I'll go with it
I'm just a girl
I won't be changing the world
And boy you know that

Oh, I can't explain just why I'm acting this way
I can't control it
So I'll go with it
I'm just a girl
I won't be changing the world
And boy you know that I'm not perfect
But I'm perfect for you

Oh
Oh
Oh
For you

Oh
Oh

    Song MeaningI love this song. I think the meaning is easy, it's about a girl who likes a guy and she knows she has flaws but she believes they are perfect for each other. She also isn't going to prove she's perfect or attempt to be, she'll be the first one to tell you she's not. I can't believe this song has no comments, I love this song, and it relates to what I am going to right now.

    General CommentWow... The girl I love and used to be with a long time ago but can't be with again for another year and half due to severe personal issues coming between us sent me this song. Honestly it made me cry. This song is the perfect song for us.. it's like it was her singing it to me. because this really is 100% true for her on every level. and turn it around to be spoken boy to girl and it's just as true for me too...

    This song is amazing ... just truely amazing. it's the perfect song.
