perfect world


sorry I didn't like your point of view
didn't mean to upset you or hurt you
find it hard to tell those sweet little lies
always finding fault when i could compromise

i just want a perfect world

sorry i don't see life the way you do
if i could i'd be just the same as you
every day parade the things i feel inside
not be frightened by the doubt that i can't hide

i just want a perfect world
something beautiful preserved
and to take what we've been given's
a trick i've never learned

so the world falls off around you
you're standing on the edge
know you'll fall it just hasn't happened yet
and there's no-one left to catch you
and even if there were
you're not sure you could repay such a debt

but i just can't seem to shake
the old pursuits of youth
simple need to be
the seeker after truth

i just want a perfect world
dumbest thing you ever heard
but to take what we've been given's
a trick i've never learned
