Perfect Days — ELLEGARDEN

“How come no one stays the same It feels like I’m a primitive
How come no one tells me what is right or what is wrong
Things I thought were reliable slipped out between my fingers”

You said as if you lost everything
But man it’s just all good

There’s nothing in our hands How can it be such a big deal
As you said this is not a perfect day
Our lives are on the edge Don’t say better off alone though
As you said this is not a perfect day

But it’s from the start isn’t it

“Maybe there’s something going wrong It feels like I’m a hypocrite
The world seems completely different from yesterday
For some reason or other every coin has two sides”

You said as if the world was against you
But man it’s just all good

There’s nothing in our hands How can it be such a big deal
As you said this is not a perfect day
Our lives are on the edge Don’t say better off alone though
As you said this is not a perfect day

We never are the saints But we don’t wanna hide
There are many things that are out of our control

Just don’t lose your smile Though someone puts you down
‘Cause that is what I love Give them the middle finger
All we have to say is “We will never be like you”

There’s nothing in our hands How can it be such a big deal
As you said this is not a perfect day
Our lives are on the edge Don’t say better off alone though
As you said this is not a perfect

There’s nothing in our hands How can it be such a big deal
As you said this is not a perfect day
Our lives are on the edge Don’t say better off alone though
As you said this is not a perfect day

But it’s from the start isn’t it
