Bonnie Tyler – Perfection lyrics

(desmond child/ diane warren)
Producer for bonnie, cher & darlene: desmond child
Recorded in 1987, bonnie did guest vocals on this song for cher's self-titled lp, along with 60's session queen darlene love. Lyrics taken from uk cd sleeve.

Hush little baby, gotta be strong
'cause in this world we are born to fight...

Be the best, prove them wrong
A winner's work is never done...

Reach the top, number one

Oh, perfection
You drive me crazy with perfection
I've worn my pride as my protection
Perfection... Oh!

I was taught to be tough
The best that you can be ain't enough
Crack the whip, sacrifice
But I found out paradise had a price
I didn't know it then
But oh I know it now
You gotta work as hard as love
To make the love work out
You know this heart of mine
Has made some big mistakes
I guess that when it comes to love
I just don't know what I takes...

All my life I've been driven by perfection
Pushed it to the limit every day and night
Whoa... I've been driven by perfection
But nothing's perfect when love ain't right
Nothing's perfect when love ain't right...

Gave it all
Played my part
I gave everything I had but my heart
Worked so hard
Made a name
But the loneliness inside stays the same
When love is here today
And then it's gone today
You got a list of lovers lookin' like a resum? Br> you gotta take some time
To make it something real
I guess that when it comes to love
I just don't know how to feel


Oh, perfection
You drive me crazy with perfection
I've worn my pride as my protection
I'm goin' crazy with perfection
