Imperfections

  • I try to give all of myself to you
    But before I can get there
    I've got parts of me I'm trying to lose

    Yeah, I got my own imperfections
    I got my own set of scars to hide
    I got my own imperfections
    I can't hold your heart when I'm fixing mine

    So give it up, give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up, give it up now
    Give it up, give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up, give it up now

    'Cause I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Yeah, I got my own, I got my own

    Hold on
    Not tryna put you on the shelf
    But before I could love you
    I need to learn to love myself

    'Cause I got my own imperfections
    I got my own set of scars to hide
    I got my own imperfections
    I can't hold your heart when I'm fixing mine

    So give it up, give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up, give it up now
    Give it up, give it up
    I ain't gonna save you
    Give it up, give it up now

    'Cause I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Yeah, I got my own, I got my own

    They're part of me and you are, too
    And I don't really want to choose
    Can you love them the way that I love you?
    They make me who I am today
    And they won't ever go away
    Can you love them the way that I love you?

    'Cause I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    I got my own imperfections
    Yeah, I got my own, I got my own (I got)

    Before I can love you (before I can love you)
    I need to learn to love myself (I got my own)
    Before I can trust you (before I can trust you)
    I need to learn to trust myself (I need, I need)
    (Before I can love you)
    (I got my)
