Perfect Thursday August 10, 2006, 1 comments

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you’re flawless, then you’ll win my love
Don’t forget to win first place
Don’t forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You’ve got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You’ve gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn’t good enough
To make us proud

I’ll live for you
I’ll make you what I never was
If you’re the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her

I’m doing this for your own damn good
You’ll make up for what I blew
What’s the problem …...
why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn’t fast enough
To make us happy

We’ll love you just the way you are
if you’re perfect

Perfect, Alanis Morissette.

Poignant. Perfect.
