I've always wanted to write a fluffy love story song, and one night this just came to me. This is pretty much my story, as you can tell by the ending. Don't show it to my brother or he'll never let me live it down. But, yeah, there's this kid at school I like. I wanted to make it clear in the song that he's not that gorgeous athlete who all the girls go crazy over, that he's just a weird, crazy kid who argues about nothing and laughs at stupid things and has friends almost as weird as me. So "he wasn't perfect" became the refrain. I think I have music for this… I don't know. Piano or guitar. Piano would be better if I plan on recording it any time soon, considering I actually have a keyboard. I can kind of play it. So far I still haven't mastered two keys at once. Well, I sort of have, but I can't do it twice in a row. There's probably fancy piano terms for that stuff, but I've not learned. I just kind of mess around on the thing, try to play music I've heard before…

Perfect

Just a girl who could never speak

She had a lot on her mind

But the world made her feel so weak

The words were impossible to find

Just a boy who was a little bit different

But he always knew what to say

She wondered if he'd ever see

How he took her breath away

He didn't know it

She didn't show it

But he was everything to her

He wasn't perfect

And neither was she

But she knew once they were together

That's what they'd be

She never thought she'd fall in love

At least not with someone real

Everything she was looking for

Could only be from a fairy tale

She'd known him for a while now

And couldn't believe she didn't see

And he didn't think he'd find anyone

He had friends, but love would never be

He didn't know it

She didn't show it

But he was everything to her

He wasn't perfect

And neither was she

But she knew once they were together

That's what they'd be

They were both so special

But he didn't hide

And she was so scared to tell him

She needed him by her side

The way the story ends is her choice to make

And she's running out of chances to take

He isn't perfect

And neither is she

But she knows when they're together

That's what they'll be

He's everything to her

You're everything to me

You're not perfect

Neither am I

But when we're together

You watch us fly
