  • I found a love for me
    Well darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
    Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
    Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
    'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love

    Not knowing what it was
    I will not give you up this time
    Darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
    And in your eyes, you're holding mine

    Oh baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favourite song
    When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
    But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

    Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
    She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
    I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
    To carry love, to carry children of our own
    We are still kids, but we're so in love
    Fighting against all odds
    I know we'll be alright this time
    Darling, just hold my hand
    Be my girl, I'll be your man
    I see my future in your eyes

    Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
    When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
    I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

    Oh oh oh oh, oh whoa oh

    Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
    Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
    I have faith in what I see
    Now I know I have met an angel in person
    She looks perfect
    Oh I don't deserve this
    You look perfect tonight Writer/s: Edward Christopher Sheeran

  • Bob from HogwartsM53, I think the like is "dancing in the dark." Hope this helps!
  • M53 from South Dakota, UsaWhat is meant, in the song 'Perfect', by the line 'dancing on the cross'? I love this song but that line bewildered me. What does it mean?
  • Bonnie Lee Stottler from MinnesotaThis is a beautiful song, it is one you never get tired of hearing, it's Perfect just the song says. Smiles, thank you so much for such a beautiful Perfect song.
