"Kind Of Perfect" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Anthony Diionno, Peter James Decicco and Nash Breen....
Can I just be something
Somewhere in your room
That you won't notice
Maybe I'll be paper
Or books thrown on your floor
Move me when you want to
I'll live where you put me
In your VCR
If I become a cassette
Or on top of you computer
If that's where I would fit
Then so be it

But things can't be perfect
All the time
That I know
Sometimes we just have to let somethings go

I will not speak one word
I'll just hang around
I won't annoy you at all
When you move out I'll stay
Until I'm thrown away
But then it won't matter

But things can't be perfect
All the time
That I know
Sometimes we just have to let somethings go

I promise to stop now

    General CommentPretty much this:
    I'll be whatever you want me to be, I'll try my hardest to fit in your life. Then, since things can't be the way we both want it to be, I have to let go.
    At least that's what I got out of it.

    General CommentI can completely relate with this song.
    He is more in love with a lover than she is for him, and he is basically saying that he'll be there if she wants him. He doesn't care how it affects him as long as he is somewhere near her.
    He also says that sometimes you just have to let some things go. He's trying to get over this obsession that he has with her, or possibly just the IDEA of her, and he says, "I promise to stop now," as if he is attempting to shake himself of the hold she has. He apparently is used to having unrequitted love in his relationships, seen when he says "letting go is my life, I'll be on my way."

    This is just a damn good song. I love all of Armor for Sleep's lyrics. They're so deep, and you can't really understand them until put in the situation.

    General CommentI agree with you bulletorchapstick (by the way, kick ass name.. i love that lyric beyond beleif)

    I also think this song means that 'hey, i'll be here for you even if you don't notice me. I don't care if you ignore me, just let me stand her next to you"

    General CommentThis is the best song in the whole wide world.

    I feel the exact same thing for someone. Except it's somewhat 1000 times more complicated.

    It's about someonen in love with someone who isn't in lve with him.
