Sorry I can't be perfect

I'm sorry I can't be perfect

I can't erase what I have seen

You can't change who I am

Or what I'm trying to be

You can't make me feel happy

Or make me feel any worse

Guilt trips don't work anymore

You can't hurt me anymore than I am

You can't make me cry

You will never see my tears

I'm not so sure the reason why

I'm sorry I can't be perfect

Or wipe clean all my scars

Or pretend that I am happy

Even when things aren't

You can't force me to believing

All the lies that you have told

You can't make me stop my habits

Just because I'm told

I'm sorry I can't be perfect

Or dead which you'd prefer

I am too much trouble

Than I am probably ever worth

You can cut my wrists

It has been done before

Or poison me with paracetamol

I have some in my drawers

You can't kill me

You can't make me feel alright

I'm sorry I can't be perfect

I am unjust and emo

But I don't know much else

You can hate me if you feel like it

Or love me if you like

I am down to earth and honest

Though messed up most nights

You'll never find what's wrong with me

Or even see me cry

I am sorry I can't be perfect

But I will always try to help you

I care to much to not

You can't change who I am

But I can't change who I'm not
