Perfect

Perfect

Be friendly and caring, get all the best grades,

Don't yell and don't cry, never be afraid.

We know you're a winner so don't let us down,

Always be happy and don't show your frown.

You're the best little girl, so perfect, so sweet,

You dress like a star and your hair's always neat.

You've got the best life, why do you look so sad?

You're living the life I sure wish that I had.

Be the best in your class, always have the right answer,

Be first soprano and the best ballet dancer.

If you work hard enough good things come to you,

If you're always the best then your dreams will come true.

You're the best little girl, so perfect and sweet,

You dress like a star and your hair's always neat.

You've got the best life, why do you look so sad?

You're living the life I sure wish that I had.

Why are you crying? You're perfect and more,

I would kill to be you so what are these tears for?

I'm sure it's a stage, you'll get over this,

You'll go back to living your life in sheer bliss.

You're the best little girl, so perfect, so sweet,

You dress like a star and your hair's always neat.

You've got the best life, why do you look so sad?

You're living the life I sure wish that I had.

Today is a sad day, our daughter has died,

We should have known better and listened when she cried.

We found her this morning, wrists cut with a knife,

My beautiful girl has just taken her life.

We pushed her too hard, made her be the best,

How could we not see how much she was depressed?

We've learned from our daughter and I hope you did too,

Don't be something you're not, you're just perfect as you.
