  • Everybody's dreamin' 'bout a perfect world
    Where you could have everything your heart desires
    A perfect boy will meet a perfect girl
    And their perfect love will set the world on fire

    Well what you gonna do, when one and one makes three
    And a vision of the future is impossible to see
    Nobody's perfect, not even a perfect fool,
    But if you'll have faith in me
    I'll keep the faith with you

    Ain't no livin' in a perfect world
    There ain't no perfect world anyway
    Ain't no livin' in a perfect world
    But we'll keep on dreamin' of livin' in a perfect world
    Keep on dreamin' of livin' in a perfect world

    Everybody's got secrets, now you know that it's true
    They talk about me and they'll talk about you
    Something happens to the pledges of trust
    Down through the years they begin to rust
    Now here we are amid the tears and the laughter
    Still waiting for our happily ever after
    We'll keep on dreamin' as long as we can
    Try to remember and you'll understand

    Ain't no livin' in a perfect world
    There ain't no perfect world anyway
    Ain't no livin' in a perfect world
    But we'll keep on dreamin' of livin' in a perfect world
    Keep on dreamin' of livin' in a perfect world Writer/s: ALEXANDER HUGHES CALL

  • David from Hazlet, NjI remember listening to this during the summer vacation before my senior year in high school. This song has always been catchy to me and wish the album could have been better received by the public. That in of itself was hard to do following the successful "Fore" album. The album "Small World" has some really good songs on it.
  • Loney from Las Vegas, NvSang this song at my graduation in 1992.
  • Rachel from North Jersey, Njvery underrated band. So many 80's bands have made successful comebacks. Why not them?
  • Justin from Felts Mills, NyHuey Lewis and the News' forgotten masterpiece...enough said.
