Perfection

from by Color Theory

lyrics

I held you in a dream
Your back against my chest
In your beauty I put my faith
Though I never even saw your face
You whispered warm
Syllables soft as your skin
Firsthand I learned
In heaven the poetry doesn’t have words

But you fell out of the sky
A pillow in my arms
Your tender voice lost without trace
Smothered by the static and the bass
I closed my eyes
Started to fall back asleep
But I couldn’t risk
Tainting our tryst with an unforeseen twist

It’s alright now
It’s alright now
If I can feel that way
If my mind can comprehend perfection
Then just maybe it exists
It’s alright now
It’s alright now.
