Jessie J – Nobody's Perfect lyrics
When I'm nervous, I have this thing yeah, I talk too much,
Sometimes I just can't shut the hell up.
It's like I need to tell someone, anyone who'll listen
And that's where I seem to fuck up.

Yeah, I
forget about the consequences,
For a minute there I lose my senses
And in the heat of the moment,
My mouth's starts going, the words start flowing, ohh

But I never meant to hurt you,
I know it's time that I learnt to
Treat the people I love, like I wanna be loved,
This is a
lesson learnt!

I hate that I let you down and I feel so bad about it!
I guess karma comes back around,
Cause now I'm the one that's hurting, yeah.
And I hate that I made you think that the trust we had is broken,
So don't tell me you can't forgive me cause nobody's perfect,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no...
Nobody's perfect, no!

If I could turn back the hands of time,
I swear I never would've cross that line.
I should have kept it between us
But Jessie went and told the whole world how she's feeling ohh

So I sit and I realize

With these tears falling from my eyes,
I gotta change if I wanna keep you forever,
I'm promise that I'm gonna try!

But I never meant to hurt you,
I know it's time that I learnt to
Treat the people I love, like I wanna be loved,
This is a lesson learnt!

I hate that I let you down and I feel so bad about it!
I guess karma comes back around,
Cause now I'm the one that's hurting, yeah.
And I hate that I made you think that the trust we had is broken,
So don't tell me you can't forgive me cause nobody's perfect,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no...
Nobody's perfect, no!

No, no, no, no, no, no, no...

I'm
not a saint, no, not at all,
But what I did it, that wasn't cool,
But I swear that I'll never do that again to you!
Hey, no!

I'm not a saint (I'm not a saint!), No, not at all (no, not at all!),
But what I did (but what I did!), That wasn't cool (that wasn't cool!)
But I swear that I'll never do that again to you!
Hey!

And I hate that I let you down (let you down),
And I feel so bad about it (feel so bad!)
I guess karma comes back around (karma comes back around)
Cause now I'm the one that's hurting, yeah!
And I hate that I made you think that (I hate that I made you think)
That the trust we had is broken (b-b-b-broken!)
So don't tell me you can't forgive me
Cause nobody's perfect.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no...

Nobody's perfect.

    Nobody is perfect. How true. Despite the valid message, one wonders exactly what Jessie J (well, the songwriters) did to hurt this person so much. Could be cheating. "The trust is broken" line seems all too familiar to those who commit infidelity. And ultimately, what goes around comes around. The hurt that Jessie J inflicted on an apparent love interest inevitably came back around to her, and in the end, she also suffers.
    However, it could be something less serious, as implied in the verses. She seems to have told a secret to someone she shouldn't have, and the person she's singing to is pissed. This is something anyone can relate to, be it a mature adult or a 10-year-old. We all have the potential to let our friends down. The chorus though is what I take issue with. Jessie J argues that because nobody is perfect, and because of this, the person should be able to forgive her. The forgiveness, like it or not, isn't up to her. What is forgivable to one person may be unforgivable to another. Regardless, the sentiment is real and the lyrics are self aware and reflective - kudos to the songwriters!

    We all have our little twitches that we just can't stand. You look at me and you think I'm a snoody little brat. But youre just the same. We are all perfect no matter how many twitches we have. We may have our differences and our own qualities, and yes we are all unique in our own way, but that doesn't mean that one is better than the other, we are all the same no matter how thik or skinny, no matter how smart or not as knowledgable as the other, we are all the same. And nobody is perfect nor I nor you. But we are still special. Not perfect. But still s p e c I a l!

    This is about a couple and one of them ends up doing something that causes the other to hurt and heart to break. Perhaps they cheated or whatever the case maybe but the one who did wrong has lost the other affection and trust. So they are trying apologize and they the other they will never hurt them again if only they get a second chance because ultimately nobody's perfect and we all make a mistake or two.

    Nobody 's perfect means that no person is perfect. Everybody has its own mistake but in the bible god said that there is one person who never had a mistake. No sin to god. He never die because god took him to heaven. My aunt say when I was young that to remember that nobody is perfect. Sometimes my classmates say to the top 1 in our class that she will perfect the test because she is a perfect person. But I say no nobody's perfect. And I sung the song to her.

    This song reminds me of my ex so much. I hope that maybe you're out there reading this. But honestly, you did the dirt on your current girlfriend with me, who was just another ex of yours. I had to tell her. She deserved to know. But I honestly never meant it to come to this. Seriously. I wish I could turn back & not open my mouth because I am the one who is hurting now. Not you anymore. 'i should've kept it between us'. But please forgive me, after all, nobody's perfect?

    When I heard this song I thought about myself completely. She is talking about the way she deals with her emotions when she is stressed. This is not about infidelity or anything like that. I am a faithful wife, was a well behaved child as far as not getting into trouble, but when I get angry, I yell, loud, and I can be hurtful, that's what it seems to me she is talking about. I also have extraordinary voice, but not great social skills. She mentioned she has ocd, I have asperger's. I think she just means that she has some personality flaws, like with her temper and controlling her mouth. That is me all the way.

    My cousin is dating my best friend. My cousin is a 'playboy' and my friend thinks that she's so special or important to him. So, I've told her about my cousin's ex gf and how he acts the same way with her. My 'friend' told that to my cousin and I wonder if he'll talk to me again. I've made a mistake but I don't want to lose him. This song perfectly describes my life right now.

    Well, now that I have listened to this song I cannot stop listening to it. This song has a lot of meaning to it, even if we don't realize it. When we are mad we happen to say hurtful things and we don't realize what we're doing until after we do it, which is wrong, but it's human. Even though she thought that it was hurting the other person more, in the end it actually hurt her worse. People don't realize how imperfect they are & they need to know that sometimes they don't have the best intentions. We can always learn something from someone else, & I learned that I need to forget, forgive, & move the f on! Nobody's perfect, thanks jessie(:
