about

'Perfect' was written as a semi-sarcastic, lighthearted musing about the doubts that creep up in the early days of a new romance. A person who says all the right things, makes all the right moves, and whose apparent ‘perfection’ can be unsettling. It’s mellow but funky, charming but rooted in truth, and just a fun, chill little ditty to get you through a long day.

lyrics

I hope you don't
Sleep with a sweater on
I hope you don't work from home
Oh, yeah

I hope you don't
Demand to be alone
If you're always on your phone

Brown eyes
Looking mighty fine
This life that could be mine
Show me a picture
Perfect
Could this really be it
Yeah

Don't show up late
On the seventh date
You know I don't like wait
Oh, yeah
And when we kiss
You know I'm so afraid
Cause you make me feel so great, yeah

Brown eyes
Looking mighty fine
This life that could be mine, yeah
Show me a picture
Perfect
Could this really be it
Yeah

I've been looking out forever
For you to come along
I've got a good feeling
Tell me I'm not wrong, oh

Brown eyes
Looking mighty fine
Oh, this life that could be mine
Yeah
Show me a picture
Perfect
Could this really be it
Yeah
Could this really be it
Oh, no
Could this really be it
