Hedley - Perfect Lyrics




Falling a thousand feet per second,
You still take me by surprise.
I just know we can't be over,
I can see it in your eyes.

Making every kind of silence,
Takes a lot to realize
It's worse to finish than to start all over and never let it lie.

And as long as I can feel you holding on
I won't fall, even if you said I was wrong.

I'm not perfect but I keep trying
'Cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely,
So please don't leave.
Was it something I said or just my personality?

Making every kind of silence,
It takes a lot to realize
It's worse to finish than to start all over and never let it lie.

And as long as I can feel you holding on.
I won't fall, even if you said I was wrong.

I know that I'm not perfect but I keep trying
'Cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely,
So please don't leave.
Was it something I said or just my personality?

When you're caught in a lie,
And you've got nothing to hide,
When you've got nowhere to run,
And you've got nothing inside.

It tears right through me,
You thought that you knew me,
You thought that you knew.

I'm not perfect but I keep trying
'Cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely,
So please don't leave.
Was it something I said or just my personality?

I'm not perfect but I keep trying
'Cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely,
So please don't leave.
Was it something I said or just my, just myself?
Just myself? Myself? Just myself?

I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.

    Trudeau just Approved Trans Pipeline for The West.Justin Gets My Vote and He Knows I Love His Mother.

    Cody Brockway

    Larry Smith and this has what to do with the song? Take your political bullshit somewhere else. This is the one place in the world where it isn’t required.

  70. Larry Smith

    Who Made You----------Human-------------------So Perfect.

  71. Suzanne Marie

    It’s a shame that bad behaviour destroyed this mans career. I have been a fan since Canadian Idol. What a beautiful song ...make amends, admit your mistakes and maybe you will succeed again ... I hope so because you are very talented ... good luck to you ❤️

  84. enterthehatch2

    All that blood is probably from all the women he abused...

  85. Music To The Day

    9 years have passed but ... the song is amazing

  86. Aleisha

    This song reminds me of my ex who just broke up with me today for another girl because I wasn't "pretty" enough and I wasn't "good" enough. I miss him already but what really sucks is how I stopped talking to so many of my good friends cuz I thought it was real. I guess as long as he's happy it's fine. But it still sucks ass, moral of the story, never change to be with somebody

    Cody Brockway

    Aleisha - that is so right. Never lose yourself for someone else. You ARE ALWAYS good enough in every way and it just takes time to find the right one to love you the way you deserve. Sometimes you have to go through controlling, manipulative dick sticks but you’ll always find the right one and remember that even in the worst of times you are never alone. To everybody, things always get better just hang in there and give it some time. 😃

  87. Larry Smith

    I have Recently Realized.To be Human is to Err.We all Make Mistakes.Love This.
