When a perfectionist realizes that nothing he does is perfect.

Lyrics
Imperfection

From the first day to the last
Imperfection

From the first page to the last
Imperfection

And so I go
To another day
To another day, but I will stay

From my first drink to my last
Imperfection

From my first word to my last
Imperfection

And so I go
To another day
To another day, but I will stay

From my first thought to my last
Imperfection

From my first song to my last
Imperfection

And so I go
To another day
To another day, but I will stay

I will never try
I will never try
For imperfection

im was a perfectionist and finally realized i cant do anything perfect. so i mostly gave up on trying to be perfect and just let things come out. simple lyrics that fit the song. it seems to be when you get to that point you cant even think of why its imperfect anymore other than it simply isnt. kinda cool way the vocals were done has that brooding feel of sitting there in your room pondering your imperfections.

G.B. Loopenstein indeed!
Lovely song Dave and a great lyrical idea. It's what makes us human, of course, G.B. Loopenstein wouldn't understand.
Good production too. Definitely one of your best.
Cheers

we're only human
great tune Dave. has a kind of Lennon vibe to it. nicely laid out piano and i like the choice of drums that you set in here. Imperfection rocks in its own way.

The piano part.....
was the reason I put this up, I originally did this one last Fall, but it got put on the throw away list.
I revisited this last week and tried to play with it and this was the best I could do.

I can see the Lennon thing.
Thanks,
LL

P.S. I've got an idea for a collab if you're interested.

Great coming from you
LOVED your latest w/dlb, just great.

This was not one of my favorites, but I thought it was worthy of posting.

Glad you dug the bass line. I originally had phase on it, but chose to keep it clean.

Thanks Rikk,

about Lennon, I guess. Flawed, but soulful. You know what I mean. I think I was in my Cold Play mode when I wrote this.
Thanks for the compliment.

WOW
Great compliment. I'm really glad you liked this. I actually consider this to be a throw away song. I guess that's why this is such a great site because you never know.
Glad I didn't trash this after all.

I have always loved John and any comparison I take as high compliment.

Thanks and enjoy the week ahead.

Nice!
I agree with the "Lennon-esque" comparison. Although I hear a little Moody Blues herein as well.

Nice introspective lyrics. Lovely melody. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

I, for one, have found perfection only in Christ. I will never ---in my lifetime--even approach perfection. I will, hoever, always strive to be a little better than I am.

Be well my friend!
lavalamp said 3466 days ago (April 24th, 2008)
A little deep
I may have been a little deep in my description, because I know that being perfect is not realistic. And you should never put goals like that upon yourself. Just try your best. Ya know?

Thanks for the kind words as always.

Stay cool,

Dave

Perfect!
Great song Dave - love the bass especially - and your subtle backing vox are really good. Agree with the others about the Lennon quality - but to me that also means timeless quality. I also hear some Alex Chilton in this - which is big props in my book. Excellent sentiment and great lyrics.

I saw the title on your song page
and when I saw the picture of the Leaning Tower, I cracked up. Perfect. What a great lyrical concept, and very well executed. Your voice sounds great here, and I love the backing vocals. The drums sounds great, and the piano works very well throughout. You never disappoint, my friend. This is another great performance and a great song. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

You set the bar high:)
For a song about imperfection it is so perfect. It is very pleasing to the senses. I am not a perfectionist, but you have given me a window into the frustration of that personality. Thank you for this song you have yet another fan.

Peace and Love,

Mike
