ABOUT THIS SONG
You’re Perfect is a love song. It’s a ballad about when things go wrong despite your best efforts and how you hope you are understood. We are human after all, and messing up seems to be what we are best at.

 

BACKGROUND
It’s a quick demo and recording that we did at home, dad and me. It’s only a simple piano & instrumental arrangement built around a few chords and a slow melody. Nothing elaborate, but hopefully its purity shines through. I will try do it again soon to make it a little better.

 

Enjoy it!
Alycia

LYRIC SHEET 
VERSE-A
Love me true
Love me blue
Coz I’m made for you

 

Sometimes I’m up
and Sometimes I’m down
But I care for you

 

I get it wrong  
You pretend I’m strong
I’m crazy for you  

 

CHORUS-A
But do I …. oh do I make your world go round?
But do I …. oh do I make your world go round?

 

INSTRUMENTAL

 

VERSE-B
Mistakes I make
Keep me awake
Oh You know it’s true

 

What a shame
I’m just not the same
Everyday for you

 

Love me till the end
When dark skies bend
And I’ll run with you

 

CHORUS-B
But do I …. oh do I make your world go round?
But do I …. oh do I make your world go round?
We’re sailing some pretty big ships here and we don’t wanna hit the ground
We’re sailing some pretty big ships here and we don’t wanna hit the ground

 

BRIDGE/OUTRO
Perfect, just perfect – how I wish I can be that person
Perfect, just perfect – you gotta tell me how I (can) learn it
Coz you always deserve the best from me, (from me)
You always deserve the best from me, from me
Coz you’re perfect, you’re perfect, you’re perfect,  you’re perfect

 

Tempo 78
Key: A Major
A little reverb on the vocals, but no auto-tune, no compression, and no EQ.

  1. I stumbled across this song only because I came to listen to your other tune. Wow this is a really nice slow love song. You are really talented Alycia. Honestly I had tears in my eyes by the time I got to the end. Personal reasons, but your song is so emotional. I love it.

  2. I really like it! Romantic and dreamy. Love to hear this song fully done. It might be worth trying at a slightly faster tempo. But it’s great.

  3. Hi Alycia-

    look forward to seeing you again… jack sherman
