The Perfect Life

Someday it´ll all make sense
We´ll say, "if we could have it all over again..."
We fantasise it, delight in it
Pretend someday we´re 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 you´re doing
Set up a business without any profit
Or tell everybody that you´ve 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
