Midtown — Perfect lyrics

This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
I came here today with a purpose
Should I try or just let it go?
'cause these things I'd like to ask you
Are things I can't explain
Or should I keep your plans outside the porch last Saturday?

Should I have succumbed to your courtesy?
I could see you were trying to get my attention
But I pushed it away

This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away

But tonight it seemed suddenly perfect
Still no promises made
The balance of power has shifted
Were you trying to let me in?
Or was I trying so hard
That all of my confidence was lost tonight?
Confused and regretful, I cracked
Swallowed it back, and left with no spine intact

Should I have succumbed to your courtesy?
I could see you were trying to get my attention
But I pushed it away

This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
This time I think it could be

Maybe we were meant
To see what's right
She held a sort of it
Just a taste of life
To see what's right
To make sense out of it

What a shame that we're slipping away now (away now)
Going away now
To see what's out there
'cause you're all that's here for me

This time I think it could be perfect
But you're pushing away
This time I think it could be perfect
You're all that's here for me
This time I think it could be perfect -acap
