Perfect Lyrics
Jump to:
I found a love for me
Darling, just dive right in and follow my lead
Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time
But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes you're holding mine

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
To carry love, to carry children of our own
We are still kids, but we're so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we'll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I'll be your man
I see my future in your eyes

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
I don't deserve this, darling, you look perfect tonight

Baby, I'm dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
I have faith in what I see
Now I know I have met an angel in person
And she looks perfect, I don't deserve this
You look perfect tonight

Perfect Info:

• The song is the fifth track on Ed Sheeran's third studio album รท, which was released in March 2017, three years on from his previous release.

• "Perfect" is a romantic ballad written about his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, which Sheeran said he hoped would become another one of his defining songs and, according to the BBC, is 'guaranteed to soundtrack thousands of first dances before the year is out'.

• In an interview with Zane Lowe, Sheeran said "I just wanted to beat "Thinking Out Loud" because I know that song was going to define me...With "Perfect", it was like, I need to write the best love song of my career".

• Sheeran revealed that inspiration behind the song came after visiting James Blunt's house, where the two singers had listened to the rapper Future's music. Sheeran said 'Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song' happened to be Future's "March Madness". But I had that 'We were just kids when we fell in love, not knowing what it was, I will not give you up.'... And I had that and I was like, right, let me just flesh that out. And the song happened and was sort of finished that day. I knew it was special."
