Perfect - One Direction



The Experience: We all are seeking the perfect life and perfect relationship, but finding it requires commitment.


Music video: The video features One Direction hanging out in their penthouse sweet as they record Perfect. The grey tone does ask an interesting question though. Is this fast life of no consequences really all there is? What if the conesquences of commitment are what give color to our lives?


The Meaning: Every relatioship starts with that moment when I first saw you, from across the room, but that is the easy part that anyone can do. True love isn't just about the rush ...If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do, baby, I'm perfect, but about commitment and honour. Thus the "love" proposed by One Direction ...I might never be your knight in shining armor ...'Cause I'm not good at making promises... has little hope of ever becoming something more than friends with benefits (but is this really friendship or even beneficial). Thankfully though One Direction warns the girl in question ...Girl, I hope you’re sure, what you're looking for.

Ask yourself: Can my friends and loved ones count on me to be the hand you put your heart in?


LYRICS:

I might never be your knight in shining armor
I might never be the one you take home to mother
And I might never be the one who brings you flowers
But I can be the one, be the one tonight

When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious, oh, yeah
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
'Cause I'm not good at making promises

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

I might never be the hand you put your heart in
Or the arms that hold you any time you want them
But that don’t mean that we can’t live here in the moment
'Cause I can be the one you love from time to time

When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious, oh, yeah
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
'Cause I'm not good at making promises

But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out, oh, yeah
And if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, we're perfect

If you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now
