Perfect

(Scott Becker)
Music by Scott Becker, lyrics by Steven Garner & Scott Becker

Perfect


I never claimed to perfect
I never told you a lie
Life had its chance to be perfect
Can’t really say I’m surprised

We were young and quite naïve
Our passions mired in make believe
Was a crisp and starry autumn evening
Honesty becomes deceiving
Absence makes the heart grow fonder
Gives us time to play and ponder

I never claimed to be perfect
I never told you a lie
Life had its chance to be perfect
Can’t really say I’m surprised

Was a simple time of life
Our needs were few our minds were ripe
Incense burning late at night
Steamy scenes by candlelight
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder
Give us time to stray and wander
I never claimed to be perfect
I never told you a lie
Life had its chance to be perfect
Can’t really say I’m surprised


Aggravation confrontation
This is all a new sensation
Send you back to your space station
I never claimed to be perfect
Life won’t be the same without you
I just now began to doubt you
Rumors circulate about you
I never claimed to be perfect
I never told you a lie
Life had it’s chance to be perfect
Can’t really say I’m surprised


(After solo repeat –Aggravation confrontation etc.)
