ryan montbleau LYRICS 

JUST PERFECT

 

Writing letters only to keep them in my head

Chasing my mind around, building arguments

And it would be easier if you were here to defend

But I remind myself that that won’t happen

 

Six more days ’til Sunday and I swear that I won’t call

And I suppose it’s about time I took down that picture on the wall

The one of you and me when we dressed up for Halloween

And I’m still not sure what you were supposed to be

What you were supposed to be

 

And I know that time heals all things

But it sure feels like time kills all things about you

And could it really have been me who said so proudly

That I’d be better off without you

 

Day by day I work myself down to the bone

And I put your arms around me whenever I’m alone

And I know that those little arms, well they aren’t real

But I say that anything is better than the way I feel

 

And day by day I work myself and I smile at all my friends

And I say that I know that it’s just a second love

And surely it don’t mean the end

But when does that name fade

And when do I stop using it for protection

And where does one go to from perfection

 

And I know you’re not perfect but I built you up that way

And I know it’s been a year but I can’t take another day

And it would be easier if you were here to defend

But as it stand I’m just left with an image of perfection

 

An image of perfection

An image of perfection

Whenever I close my eyes

An image of perfection

And it gets me by
