Stay, forever who you are
Don't change a thing
Because you are perfect

You sway, gently in the breeze
In between my dreams
It kinda makes me nervous

You're storm, is lightning striking down
To only strike me once
Would still be worth it

[CHORUS:]
In my dreams, you were perfect
When I woke up, you were perfect

Love, as scaring as it is
Tell me, is it real?
If it aint hurting

I break, when sounding of you fades
My colours bleed to one
Nothing grows when your love is gone

[CHORUS:]
In my dreams, you were perfect
When I woke up, you were perfect
Even when you run, you're still worth it
Mmm... Here and now, the moment's perfect

[BRIDGE:]
Your barriers have now fallen down
But your love's still a part of me
The way you end should be the way you were found
Lost in spirit

In a river or a stream
Happily you float
While I'm clearly drowning

Regrets
I don't have not one
I'd do it all again
For you, I'd do anything

[CHORUS:]
In my dreams, you were perfect
When I woke up, you were perfect
Mmm... even when you run, you're still worth it
Here and now, the moment's perfect

Perfect
So perfect
When you run
Run, Yeah yeah yeah yeah run
Even in my dreams
When I wake up, perfect
You're perfect
Baby baby baby baby baby run
Run run
I broke, trying to keep up with you
Because you're perfect

    Perfect is someone who loves them selves for who they are inside and not what they look like on the outside

    Perfect is that one person who you love so completly. Every part of then makes you smile - even if it makes others cringe

    she doesn't care if there is someone else out there that is more perfect than the person standing infront of her, she only wants him to stay the way he is so therefore she will be forever happy :)
