One Direction – Perfect lyrics

[Verse 1: Louis]
I might never be your knight in shining armor
I might never be the one you take home to mother
And I might never be the one who brings you flowers
But I can be the one, be the one tonight

[Refrain: Liam]
When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah)
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
‘Cause I'm not good at making promises

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now


[Verse 2: Niall]
I might never be the hand you put your heart in
Or the arms that hold you any time you want them
But that don’t mean that we can’t live here in the moment
‘Cause I can be the one you love from time to time

[Refrain: Liam]
When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah)
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
Cause I'm not good at making promises

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous

If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

[Bridge]
And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out
(Oh, yeah)
And if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, we're perfect

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

    One of the best songs of One Direction. They have rocked this and it's absolutely awesome. The lyrics, the meaning, and of course not to forget Harry's voice. Louis and Harry have penned this and you'll definitely love it. You can download the original version of the song from iTunes. This is actually a kind of break-up song. There are rumors that it has been written to Taylor by Harry post break up. But I'm not sure about it. People believe it because it has a close resemblance to Taylor Swift's song "Style".

    I feel like this song means, like, I know I can't be the one that will always make you feel safe. Or the one you bring to meet your parents. Or hold you all the time, but I can be the one tonight. Everyone says it's about Taylor Swift but it's not! At least, I don't think so. I think that if Harry wanted to get back together with Taylor, he would have. I feel like this song means, if you like these things (causing trouble up in hotel rooms, little rendezvous) we're perfect. Almost like a friends with benefits thing. They're just helping each other in a way. Louis and Harry obviously have their meaning for this song and I have a theory but I'm not going to say it because I do not want to get hate but let's just say I believe in Larry. Now, I'm not saying what I think of this song is correct, it's just a hypothesis. But I hope you agree in at least some way.

    It does sound like "Style" by Taylor Swift! A coincidence? I don't think so, I actually think that Harry wanted to write about Taylor since she always writes about him. I really love this song, I think it is one of their best! Everyone should check out Taylor Swift's reaction!
