Perfect Lyrics - Alanis Morissette
Review The Song (2)
Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll win my love
Don't forget to win first place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your face
Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make me prouder
How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet
Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn't good enough
To make us proud
sponsored linksI'll live through you
I'll make you what I never was
If you're the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him, compared to her
I'm doing this for your own damn good
You'll make up for what I blew
What's the problem...why are you crying
Be a good boy
Push a little further now
That wasn't fast enough
To make us happy
We'll love you just the way you are if you're perfect

It's okay. It doesn't matter what my parents or my siblings think of me, or even what I think of me, to some extent. All that matters is that I know. I know I'm good enough. I know I'm perfect, in my own special way, blah blah blah. I have realized this and I am whole again.
Makes me cry | Reviewer: Silvia | 5/3/13
This song makes me so sad. I never feel good enough for my parents. My sister and brother are always so much smarter than me, and I feel like my parents never respect and appreciate the few talents I have. I am smart, but I never measure up to my siblings. My parents only once said they were proud of me in my entire life, and that was because I had finally 'worked hard at something', not because I was actually good at it. So I really connect to this song. It makes me sad, but it's nice to know someone feels the way I do too. It's saved me from vague thoughts of suicide more than once.
Thank you, Alanis!
