I'm sorry I'm not perfect
I can only be me
I'm sorry I'm not perfect
Like the girl you want me to be
I'd give anything to make you happy
Even if it makes me sad
I'd never do anything to hurt you
I don't try to make you mad
Sometimes you get angry
And we start to fight
Little do you know
I cry myself to sleep at night
Sometimes I don't know
Just what I did wrong
I don't understand
Why we don't get along
Every time we fight
I wish you could feel my heart break
Sometimes I wonder
How much more my heart can take
Sometimes I get so angry
I don't know what to say
I feel just like a game
That everyone wants to play
The only thing I need in this world
Is someone who is true
The only thing I need in this world
is...to be loved by you
