"The Perfect Love"
I paint my way out of my brain
Soft and surely I'll pick up
Lovers' soup is my only lunch
Spinach rallies in a fill-in
Hung out to dry with all the lettuce
So many times, I have found myself
In the way of forgiveness
Just as jolly as a beginning
Who shares my time?
The one who loves me
Yeah, I know I said it was "impossible"
But I guess I just didn't wanna jinx myself
Or she woulda' never got with me
Today, my sky turns into a beautiful grey
And then night will capture the leftover hours
And I will be held accountable
For a French fry walking over
To say "hi" to us
As we lay in each others' arms
So grateful to be in love
Like a jelly fish, she moves my soul
Like an animal, I want her all
I eat away at the food that is her love
'Cause I just can't get enough
This is all that love has to be
