Me And My Perfect Lover

Me and my perfect lover,
We're taking the early train to Paris,
And I'll be fed baguettes and I'll be handed bouquets of roses and chocolates,
Me and my perfect lover,
We're in gondolas in Venice,
And you'll laugh at the way my guidebook Italian sucks and I'll tell you to stop laughing,

Stupid merry-go-round,
Stupid merry-go-round,
Won't you just stop,
I want to get off,
I don't like the rush,
but I want something stable for once,
Am I looking for somebody special or just somebody to hold?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know,

Me and my perfect lover,
We're rollerblading through the park,
And I'll giggle when I fall on my ass and you'll help me to my feet,
Me and my perfect lover,
We're sharing a bowl of noodles on the balcony watching stars,
And you're holding my hands and sharing all your secrets and fears with me,

Stupid merry-go-round,
Stupid merry-go-round,
Won't you just stop,
I want to get off,
I don't like the rush,
but I want something stable for once,
Am I looking for somebody special or just somebody to hold?
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know,

Every time my heart breaks, it shatters to smithereens,
Every time I go on dates, I cross my fingers and try my best,
Every time I fail, I run out of breath and I'm scrambling to my feet,
Every time I wait, nobody comes along on a white horse to save me,
Everything I ever hoped for is everything that they never are,
And everybody says my expectations are too high, and I'm reaching too far,
But nobody knows I'm not picky, I'm just wary and tired and scarred, really scarred,
Every day, every minute. every second I'm hoping for a real flesh and blood lover to heal my heart,
Every time I break up, I gun for better, but I come up empty handed or a glass almost empty,
Everything, everything, just everything is starting to look like a lost cause to me,

Stupid merry-go-round,
Stupid merry-go-around,
Won't you just stop?
Wont you just stop.
I'm doing it all wrong,
I'm doing it all wrong,
I know, I know, I know,
I should just stop,
I should just stop.
I'm doing it all wrong,
My perfect lover just isn't going to come along.
