Perfect

  • Sick of circling the same road
    Sick of bearing the guilt
    So open the windows to cool off
    And heat pours in instead

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    All my efforts to clean me
    Leave me putrid and filthy
    And how can you look at me
    When I can't stand myself

    I'm tired to be honest
    I'm nobody

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only running in just your strength alone

    I tried to kill you
    You tried to save me

    You save me
    You save me
    You save me
    You save me

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only perfect in just your strength alone

    Perfect in weakness
    I'm only running in just your strength alone Writer/s: HOWARD BENSON, SAMEER BHATTACHARYA, JAMES CULPEPPER, JARED HARTMANN, MARK LEWIS, LACEY NICOLE MOSLEY, PAT SEALS

  • Eden from Folsom, CaYeah it has some god thrown in there. its about someone trying so hard to be perfect, when they realize they cant and they give up on themselves god is the only one who does not.

    She's only perfect through the strength of god
