Sick of circling the same road
Sick of bearing the guilt
So open the windows to cool off
And heat pours in instead

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

All my efforts to clean me
Leave me putrid and filthy
And how can you look at me
When I can't stand myself

I'm tired to be honest
I'm nobody

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

Perfect in weakness
I'm only running in just your strength alone

I tried to kill you
You tried to save me

You save me
You save me
You save me
You save me

Perfect in weakness
I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

Perfect in weakness
I'm only running in just your strength alone

    well i think we all know what this song is about..its about how we all try to be perfect but no one can be perfect..

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    means we can never be perfect without god...

    All my efforts to clean me
    Leave me putrid and filthy
    And how can you look at me
    When I can't stand myself

    I'm tired to be honest
    I'm nobody

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    let's accept the fact that we can save ourself... JESUS is the only way, the truth, and the life... He's the only one who could save us despite of our imperfections...

    we are perfect in weakness because it is GOD who strenthens me...

    "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..."
    Philippians 4:13

    i tried to be honest i'm nobody,
    perfect in weakness
    i'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    that's my favorite because that's very true... when we are weak, that's the best time that GOD could exhibit HIS great power so that we will not rely on our own strength but we should rely on HIS strength...

    I think it's about her not being perfect because shes lonely without a guy she loves or whatever. I don't think it's about religion because they say they ARE NOT a christian band themselves in wikipedia. It's about not being perfect and lonely because the person you love isn't with you anymore.
