lyrics

The prefect song exists
And when you first hear it
The melody feels brand new and
Every line of it rings true
No matter if you’ve already heard
Every nuance every word
You need to hear it once again
Stop what you’re doing and listen

Makes you cry you feel like you want to die
Makes you smile but after a very short while

The perfect song it seems too slow
You discover another on the radio
One that hits a magical spot
First you grow cold and then you get hot
And you pray for a beautiful day
And you feel surreal

The perfect song twists and crawls
In and out of the dance halls
It takes a seat centre stage
Then it disappears clean off the page
All gone where did the idea came from
All gone back to square one

The perfect song I thought I wrote
I threw away note for note
I gave up on chapter and verse
And saying goodbye, it really hurts
And love love will tear us apart
Still you know that old chestnut by heart
And life imitates art
Here we are back at the start

Of my perfect song
My perfect song
My perfect
My perfect
