Perfect Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hey, dad, look at me
Think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
And do you think I'm wasting my time
Doing things I wanna do?

But it hurts when you disapprove all along

[Pre-Chorus]
And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud

I'm never gonna be good enough for you
Can't pretend that I'm alright
And you can't change me

[Chorus]
'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can't go back

I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

[Verse 2]
I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside

Did you know you used to be my hero?
All the days you spent with me
Now seem so far away
And it feels like you don't care anymore


[Pre-Chorus]
And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud
I'm never gonna be good enough for you

I can't stand another fight
And nothing's alright

[Chorus]
'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can't go back

I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

[Bridge]
Nothing's gonna change the things that you said
And nothing's gonna to make this right again (Right again)
Please don't turn your back
I can't believe it's hard just to talk to you
But you don't understand (You don't understand)


[Chorus]
'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

Now it's just too late
And we can't go back

I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late
And we can't go back

I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

About “Perfect”

A song about living up to the expectations of your father. Many fathers push their sons too hard and never tell their sons that they are proud because they believe that it will make their sons tough. This song also makes a strong case for gay men whose fathers are disappointed in them.

Think about Bobby in King of the Hill. Hank wants him to be the quintessential manly man while Bobby has feminine tendencies. For example, Hank wants Bobby to be football star but Bobby likes soccer, much to Hank’s dismay.

That boy ain’t right."
