Mariah Carey Imperfect Lyrics

Last updated: 06/03/2010 11:00:00 AM

(Oh-oh-oh) [x4]

[Verse 1:]
I saw you yesterday,
And I heard what you had to say,
All those ugly ways you
Think about me, yeah.

But I know it's okay,
Gonna keep a smile on my face,
Hate don't change the way
I feel about my inner being.

[Refrain:]
'Cause I won't let 'em dim my light, and I'm holding
My head up high,
Even though my exterior
Is not impeccable to me,

I don't know if my
Wrongs is right,
But I'm gonna keep living my life.

Defame my name,
And doubt me,
I don't care what they say
'bout me.

[Chorus:]
Imperfect;
that's all that I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

(Imperfect) [x4]

[Verse 2:]
As I look at the TV screen,
Internet and magazines,
So much insecurity surrounds me,
wish I could change some things,
gotta steal with my self-esteem,
Folks so superficial
Makes it hard to just survive.

[Refrain:]
'Cause I won't let 'em dim my light,
and I'm holding my head up high,
Even though my exterior
Is not impeccable to you,
I don't know if my
Wrongs is right,
But I'm gonna keep living my life

Defame my name and doubt me,
I don't care what they say
'bout me.

[Chorus:]
Imperfect;
That's all that I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

(Imperfect) [x4]

[Bridge:]
I may not walk like a super model, or look as flawless as they do;
I don't know where you get off judging,
'cause I'm imperfect just like you.

So I don't care about your status, so I'll swear up to here I've had it;
Ain't trying to win no beauty pageant, 'cause in my heart is all that matters.

[Chorus:]
Imperfect;
That's all that I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, but the song of life
Is out of key;
Just be perfectly imperfect.

(Imperfect) [x4]

Oh...

That's all
That I'll ever be;
And god knows that's alright with me,
'Cause I know there's
No one greater
And everybody's imperfect,
When you tryna live in harmony, (tryin', tryin')
but the song of life Is out of key; (it's alright)
Just be perfectly imperfect. (Baby, baby, baby!)

(Imperfect) [x8]
