Lyrics


Perfect

On another world by another star

At another place and time

In another state of consciousness

In another state of mind


Everything was almost perfect

Everything fell into place

The jury reached a different verdict

Before the judge dismissed the case


In a parallel universe

That's happening right now

Things between us must be worse

But it's hard to see just how


And everything could have been perfect

Everything in the right place

Then I wouldn't have to play the suspect

Accused, abandoned and disgraced


I didn't shoot, I didn't pull the trigger

It wasn't me I'm just a plain and simple singer

I heard the sound, I turned my head around

To watch our love shot down


In another lonely universe

We're laying side by side

And no one's hurt and no one's cursed

And no one needs to hide


And everything is almost perfect

Everything is almost right

There are never any conflicts

There are never any fights
