I drop onto my bed
And the dust jumps up
Too sad to turn my head
'Cause my heart's full up

She's staying at your home,
And she's sleeping in your bed
I can't let you consider
That you just don't care, oh oh


Every morning I wake up
And I smoke a fine cigar -
A habit I acquired in Barcelona

Expectations are blessed
When I'm given up to you
Oh, I'm a perfectionist -
I was hoping you were too

(Perfectionist) uh oh
(Perfectionist) Oh oh

Well, perhaps this is why
I could not say goodbye
'Cause these rules I'm living by
Don't apply to real life

Tell me how am I meant to
Keep my cheeks dry,
Without pissing you off
With that one word, one word?

Why why why? Oh oh
Why oh oh

Can't say these things to you
So I have to sing 'em live.
When I spit you get so angry
So I'll take you by surprise

Oh Mr. and Mrs. Perfect
Together they cannot be!
And that's the thing you had to deal with
When you fell in love with

Me uh oh
Me oh oh oh
Me oh oh oh
Oh oh oh ohh

You left me for a quick fix
But you crawed back to your cot
Thank fuck you didn't harm the spark in me
I know it's all I've got!

And i know that it sound cliché,
But i know that it is true
Oh, you rely on myself -
I can't rely on

You oh oh
You oh oh ohhh

You treat me like a trinket
Keep me in a special box
I'm not no polite treasure
In the chest that time forgot

Oh, you keep me in the dark, shining
Make me feel so bad
I feel you only loved me when you realised
That i was all you ever had

uh oh
P-p-p-perfect, oh
Had, uh oh ohh
Had, uh oh, ohh

(Perfect oh)
(Perfect oh!)
