"Almost Perfect" as written by Rick Beato, Emerson Hart, Justin Moore, Matt Chambless, Phil Bogard and Shea Sowell....
Maybe her eyes are just a little bit red
Almost all the time
Maybe her hair, it smells like cigarettes
When I climb into bed with her at night

She don't want to try
But this just feels so right

She's almost perfect
She is so close to being everything
She's almost perfect
But she's not, she's not mine

Maybe she knows she drives me crazy
Just bats her eyes like she's my baby
Maybe she's quick to let her tongue fly at me
She's not the most proper lady
I'm the one to blame I know I caused this crash
So now I wander in this mess
Int this lake of sour mashed
Through my head the notion that

Maybe she's not quite honest with me
Almost all the time
Maybe I know there's someone else in her life
When I climb into bed with her at night

    General CommentWhen you first listen to this song, you probably think that the guy and the girl are togehter, but when you get to the end, you realize that they're not, because he talks about someone else in her life, and also states that "she's not mine." So the way I see it, this song is about how this guy is so in love with this girl even though all her imperfections, and still doesn't care about the fact that she's with someone else.

    General CommentI dunno, I still think they are together because even at the end he says: Maybe I know there's someone else in her life/When I climb into bed with her at night. So like they're together and he seems just really in love with her even though he knows she does have a lot of imperfections like how she's seeing someone else and isn't being honest about it. Seems a little bittersweet, she's so great but at the same time she has so many flaws. I really like this song.....

    General CommentI think this song is just something he wrote about his girlfriend just to see how it sounds like so much B.S. My previous relationship was that way. I wish that I had enough sense to write a song to actually hear my own words I was telling myself. I always said, "Oh he's so close to being perfect. Even tho he probably cheats on me and maybe kisses other girls, he's so close to being perfect. He might get high (maybe her eyes are just a little bit red almost all the time) and smoke cigarettes (maybe her hair it smells like cigarettes when I climb into bed with her at night.)

    That's my theory.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about how this guy believes he has found perfection in this girl he's been watching from afar, yet he's searching for her imperfections. In the verses, he's speaking hypothetically when he says "maybe". So, maybe one of her flaws could be that her hair smells like cigarettes, or that she's dishonest most of the time.

    When you get to the end of the song, it's like the guy is saying that the ONLY imperfection he's found in this girl, is that she's not with him.

    She's almost perfect...with one exception...she's not with the guy.

    General Commentyou couldn't be more wrong.

    He's obsessed with her even though she's "not the most proper lady"

    It's like when you really like something that's reeeealy horrible (a girl, in this instance) and everyone points out how much it sucks but you just won't be swayed.

    It's being expressed as "Yeah, maybe she's a vixen from hell, but I'm still mad for her"

    General CommentFor what it's worth, this song was written (with the help of Tonic's Emerson Hart) by Ingram Hill's guitarist, Phil Bogard, about his relationship with Jessica Harp of The Wreckers.

    General CommentI can't believe Ingram Hill don't get any comments. They are totally under-rated.

    General CommentThat's because they hardly ever get any airtime...they aren't overplayed yet....I mean mainstream yet.

    General CommentI'm going to a concert tomorrow at our college and one of the bands is Ingram Hill. I'd never heard them, so to get ready for the concert I downloaded a few of their songs. They are amazing! This has got to be my favorite song they sing.

    General CommentThe guy is hoping to find a girl. He's done this many times be fore (like all guys haved including me). Now he comes across another girl that he thinks might be perfect. But he doesnt know her bad side. And he's trying to discover what they are. overall the only problem with the girl is that he and her arnet together.
