The Perfect Life

Someday itŽll all make sense
WeŽll say, "if we could have it all over again..."
We fantasise it, delight in it
Pretend someday weŽre going to find it
The perfect life

To turn a house into a home
You work your fingers to the bone
The plan is easy, the proof is rough
No-one gives you a hand up
To the perfect life

To keep face in the face of ruin
You make it look like you know what youŽre doing
Set up a business without any profit
Or tell everybody that youŽve already got it
The perfect life

God gives his crown away
Like they were pennies
Beware of this fortune
For you can never spend it
The perfect life
