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

She's stayin' at your home
She's sleepin' in your bed
I can't let you consider
That you just don't care, oh oh

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

Expectations are blissed
When I'm given up to you
Oh I'm a perfectionist
I was hoping you were
Too, oh oh (Perfectionist)
Too, oh oh (Perfectionist)

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 right
Without pissing you off
With that one word, one word
Why word, why, oh oh
Why, oh oh, why-y-y

Can't say these things to you
So I have to sing them 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 a thing you had to deal with
When you fell in love with me, oh oh
Me, oh oh, me, oh oh oh

You left me for a quick fix
But you crawled 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 sounds cliché
But I know that it is true
Oh, you rely on myself
I can't rely on you, oh oh
You, oh oh, you-u-u-u

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
Our shining made me feel so bad
I feel you only loved me when you realized
That I was all you ever had
Oh oh, p-p-p-perfect-oh
Had, oh oh, ohh, had, oh oh, ohh
Perfect-oh, perfect-oh
