MARINA – Perfect-Oh Lyrics

Play this song

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 sleeping in your bed
I can’t let you consider that you just don’t care

Every morning I wake up and I smoke a fine cigar
A habit I acquired in Barcelona
Expectations are bliss when I’m given up to you
Oh, I’m a perfectionist, I was hoping you were too

(Perfectionist) Uh oh
(Perfectionist) Too
Uh oh, perfection

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”, uh-oh
Why, uh-oh, why

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 a thing you had to deal with when you fell in love

With me, uh-oh
Me, uh-uh oh
Me, uh-uh, oh
Oh-oh, uh-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, uh-oh
You, uh-oh

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 realized that I was all you ever

Had, uh-oh
Had, uh-oh, oh
Had, uh-oh, oh
