Perfume Genius - Not For Me Lyrics

Ballads are being sung
But not for me
Church bells are being rung
But not for me

I've never known love
Or been shown love, you see
Maybe there is such a thing
But it's not for me

Poems are being read
But not for me
Prayers are being said
But not for me

I am without love
But I don't doubt love can be
Warm and tender for some
But not for me

Let all of your singers be singing
But not for me
Let all of your church bells be ringing
But not for me

Let all of your singers be singing
But not for me
Let all of your church bells be ringing
But not for me

  2. Robert Silverman

    One of my favorite artists. Nice job directing Mike! Will this song be on the next album? No Shape would've won a Grammy in a perfect world.

  3. i love all music on the inside

    This might sound crazy...but I feel like a collab with Perfume and SOPHIE would be insanely good

  4. Ishabaal

    Oh god why can't I get this shirt off. Please send help.

  5. Sim Barr Fidel

    Pure genius to be able to pull out such raw emotions from what was pure pop in it’s original incarnation. Really heartbreakingly beautiful ...

  6. New Alternative 40 Chart

    "Not for Me" debuted at #7 on the New Alternative 40 Chart this week!

  7. Bret Wheatley

  8. Chris G Sharp

  9. joepmc

    Really impressed by your directorial debut, it's perfect. Didn't realize it was a Bobby Darin song, I thought it was a personal homage to the Gershwin tune. I hope you're well and that you're still together & happy with your partner. Thank you for being such an inspiring artist <3
