Perfect One For Me (Demo)

lyrics

When I come home to you here every night
I know that something needs to change, this just doesn't feel right
it isn't something wrong with you, tho'if I could speak with candor
I think it's about time I raised my standards.

I don't deny we have a good connection
I like it when you flatter me with showers of affection
you make me happy when you are so sweet
it doesn't raise my self-esteem to be loved by a deadbeat


for now you are the perfect one for me
for now you are everything I need
if I would spend the energy I'd find someone way better
but for now you are as high as I dare to reach


I love the way you sit here on the couch
I love the little sounds you make when you're being a grouch
I like the way you are right now but it's time that I confessed
but if I'm still with you in a year I'll be so darn depressed

You say the right things every time you speak
and I love the way you give a hug and kiss me on the cheek
I feel so comfortable with you; and you feel good with me
but I want to change and then move on; this is no way to be.

for now you are the perfect one for me
for now you are everything I need
if I would spend the energy I'd find someone way better
but for now you are as high as I care to reach
