"Perfect Nightmare" as written by Latoya Duggan, Victoria Mccants and Rodney Jerkins....
Sometimes we fight
Sometimes I cry
Why don't I just tell him goodbye
Sometimes I should but
Sometimes I don't
Build up the strength to say that its wrong
Sometimes I hate, sometimes I love
Sometimes I hurt, sometimes I don't
Sometimes I wait for him to change
But its okay I just got to pay (yeah)

And I don,t ever wanna leave 'em alone
They say I'm brain washed but I'm in love with this man (yeahhh)

Keep tellin' myself that its not worth it
I already know I don't deserve it
But if its from you I don't mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare
So when will I wake up and scream

No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way
But if its from you I don mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare (perfect nightmare)

Sometimes I keep it cool
Sometimes I let 'em know, sometimes I even pack my bags to walk out the door
Sometimes I feel safe
Sometimes I really don't
Sometimes I promise that I'm ready to let 'em go
But I don't ever wanna leave 'em alone
They say I'm brainwashed but I'm in love with this man (ooooh)

Keep tellin' myself that its not worth it
I already know I don't deserve it
But if its from you I don't mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare
So when will I wake up and scream

No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way
But if its from you I don mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare (perfect nightmare)

Hopin' hes changing but I'm scared hes not cant see a way to leave him
He open'd my eyes and I

Keep tellin' myself that its not worth it
I already know I don't deserve it
But if its from you I don't mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare
So when will I wake up and scream

No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way
But if its from you I don't mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare (perfect nightmare)

Keep tellin' myself that its not worth it
I already know I don't deserve it
But if its from you I don't mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare
So when will I wake up and scream

No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way
But if its from you I don mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare (perfect nightmare)

No way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way
But if its from you I don mind hurting
This is my perfect nightmare (perfect nightmare)

    General CommentHer and her boyfriend fight a lot. They're relationship has been the ultimate roller coaster ride. She usually just puts up with what he does, but from time to time she gets the strength to tell him that what he is doing to her is wrong. She waits for him to change but he never does. But the last thing she wants to do is leave him. And deep down she knows that even if he never changes, she never will. All of the people around her think she's crazy, but really she's just in love with him.
    She knows that she doesn't deserve all of the pain. But she knows that the pain is worth it if she stays with him in the long run. It's her perfect nightmare being in love with someone who she knows that she should just get over. She wonders when it'll finally hit, and she'll decide that she's had enough.
    She even packs her bags to leave and tells herself that she's ready to. But then she ends up changing her mind because she knows that she can't take it. She isn't ready. She has never truly (woken up).
    She hopes that he's slowly changing but she knows that he probably isn't. She wants something to finally open her eyes to this because she can't do it by herself.

    General Commentthis song really stands out to me cause I can relate to it & because I have my own perfect nightmare. I think this song is about loving someone who's wrong for you or isn't yours. You know deep down inside that how they're treating you is wrong or that the situation is wrong itself but for some reason you can't let go but you're trying to build up the strength to let them go for good.
