Lyrics

The World is Perfect

Drew James © 2007

 

We sit in the Café Jalesco

Where each conversation’s an echo

Of when the times were carefree

And our dreams were so real

Before the Hydes all escaped from our Jekylls

 

I walk to the jukebox on cue

The same way that I always do

I’ve worn out the keys

Playing that tune on A3

The world is perfect except for you

 

Sometimes you live and you don’t learn

You see all the signs and still don’t turn

Your shadow just gets longer when the sun’s going down

Until your chances with the nice girls are gone

 

We share the same table for three

Little Jimmy, Big Joe and me

Where once told stories

Of conquest and glory

Until they became too hard to believe

 

Now each sentence begins

“If I had it to do over again…”

You can fill in the rest

Because no second guess

Will ever change anything in the end

 

(Chorus)

 

As that song plays over and over

I wonder how I ever let her go

Now each kiss I’m unable to give her

Leaves another open wound on my soul

 

The world is perfect except for you

The world is perfect except for you

Almost perfect can feel all wrong

When your chances with the nice girls are gone

 

The world is perfect except for you

The world is perfect except for you

I just kept on playing that same old song

Until my chances with the nice girls were gone
