WORDS

PERFECT IDIOT

I wanted to depend on her. But she let me down. Now I’m a fool.

She’s like that all the time. Laughing at this love of mine.

All my friends say she’ll destroy me in the end, I’ll see. 

 

But I know she’s the only one, the only for me...

 

She won’t tell me where she goes. 

She won’t tell me who she’s with.

We’ve never had a conversation. 

There’s never been a goodnight kiss. 

My mind used to be so healthy, now I’m on one knee

 

Still I know she’s the only one, the only for me...

 

I’ve made myself the perfect life. The perfect lie. 

The perfect mess.

And it’s perfectly clear that I’m a perfect idiot, and I don’t care.

I’ll just keep on telling her, and someday she might see.

 

Cause I know she’s the only one, the only for me...

 

I know this probably won’t ever come to be.

That there’ll be the tiniest place in her life for me.

 

I remember way back when. Old history. Worlds apart

I left behind the green, green grass 

for this ghost town in my heart.

Voices from that past say just run from all this misery...

 

But I know she’s the only one, the only for me...

 

I’ve made myself the perfect life. The perfect lie. 

The perfect mess.

And it’s perfectly clear that I’m a perfect idiot, and I don’t care.

I’ll just keep on telling her, and someday she might see.

 

Cause I know she’s the only one, the only for me...

Cause I know she’s the only one, the only for me...
