(She's a perfect girl)
(She's a perfect girl)

Nobody ever, ever could tell her
What it's like to fall in love
Tired of searching
She wants to be perfect
Nothing's ever good enough
And I watch, I wait
Catch her eye and look away
Nobody ever, ever could tell her
But I tried

She keeps me hanging on the line
Praying at the sky
Every single night's the same
(She's a perfect girl)
Hanging by phone
Praying all alone
Everybody knows her name
(She's a perfect girl)
(She's a perfect girl)
(She's a perfect girl)

And she wanted to want me
Wanted to need me
Wanted all those distant stars
Wanted a surgeon
A full operation
But she couldn't bear the scars
And she cut me well
But she wouldn't be cut herself
And nobody told me I could be lonely
When I fell

She keeps me hanging on the line
Praying at the sky
Begging her for what I need
(She's a perfect girl)
Hanging by phone
Praying all alone
Waiting for a soul to please
(She's a perfect girl)
(She's a perfect girl)

Everybody knows that she could be
Everybody knows that she could be

I'm not perfect, what's a girl to do
In a perfect world I'd be perfect too
But the longer that she makes me wait
The more my heart begins to break
But it's worth it when she comes
In the morning she'll be gone
And I'll be

Hanging on the line
Praying at the sky
Every single nights the same
(She's a perfect girl)
Hanging by phone
Praying all alone
Everybody knows her name
(She's a perfect girl)
(She's a perfect girl)

Everybody knows that she could be
Everybody knows that she could be
She's a perfect girl
