Henry:
Our planet is poison,
The oceans, the air,
Around and beneath
And above you.

Natalie:
Um, Henry, that's true,
And I totally care—

Henry:
I'm trying to tell you
I love you.

Natalie: [Spoken]
What?

Henry:
The world is at war,
Filled with death and disease—
We dance on the edge of destruction.
The globe's getting warmer
By deadly degrees—

Natalie:
And this is one fucked up seduction.

Henry:
This planet is pretty much
Broken beyond all repair...
But one thing is working
If you're standing there.

Perfect for you...
I could be perfect for you.
I might be lazy, a loner,
A bit of a stoner—it's true.
But I might be perfect--
I'll make myself perfect...
Perfect for you.

You square all the corners,
I straighten the curves.

Natalie:
You've got some never, Henry,
And I'm just all nerves.

Henry:
But even if everything else
Turns to dirt—

Henry & Natalie:
We'll be the one thing
In this world that won't hurt.

Henry:
I can't fix what's fucked up,
But one thing I know I can do...
I can be perfect for you.

Natalie:
I can be perfect for you.

Henry & Natalie:
Perfect for you.
