Perfect Girl

Perfect Girl by Sarah McLachlan
From : Afterglow (2003)

Am I faithful, am I strong, am I good enough to belong
in your reverie a perfect girl
Your vision of romance is cruel and all along I played the fool
all your expectations bury me


Don't worry you will find the answer if you let it go
give yourself some time to falter
But don't forgo knowing that you're loved no matter what
and everything will come around in time

I own my insecurities I try to own my destiny
That I can make or break it if I choose
But you take my words and twist them round till I'm the one who brings you down
Make me feel like I'm the one to blame for all of this


You need everybody with you on your side
Know that I am here for you but I hope in time
You'll find yourself allright alone
You'll find yourself with open arms
You'll find yourself you'll find yourself in time

The riot in my heart decides to keep me open and alive
I have to take myself away from you
cause I can't compete I can't deny there's nothing that I didn't try
how did I go wrong in loving you?


I'm a huge Sarah McLachlan fan. Her music is so similar to poetry. You really need to listen carefully to the words in her songs. I adore her lyrics. We all have our idea of the "perfect girl." Tell me about it...What is yours? Are you perfect?

I am far from perfect. Although Mr. Fire would tell you differently.

My idea of the perfect girl would be someone beautiful (in my eyes, not the sterotypical beautiful), funny, sweet, has a wild side, and can hold a great conversation.

The first thing that came to mind when I read this was: Sarah McLachlan has a nice rack!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...

I love the lyrics to her songs too! And I am far from perfect! Really! But if I had to pick the perfect would be someone who can be a lady in public and a slut in the bedroom.
