Perfect Beauty

(Christina Grimm)
PERFECT BEAUTY

He wants her to be
Perfectly beautiful
Like all the girls
He watches on TV
She does her best to please
With makeup and pretty clothes
But all he sees
Are the thorns and not the rose:

Perfect beauty for all the world to see
Perfect beauty can be so lovely

She puts her tender body
Under the surgeon’s knife
So he can have a perfect wife
Still there’s no guarantee
Now he sees her lying there
Perfect breasts, perfect cheeks
Perfect skin, perfect teeth
But she no longer cares:
CHORUS

Her most precious quality
That always eludes his eye
Loving spirit deep inside
Now has been set free
So he says his last goodbye
As they close the coffin lid
Tries to make some sense of it -
There’s no perfection in life

Perfect beauty for all the world to see
Perfect beauty can be so lovely
Perfect beauty, oh what a tragedy
Perfect beauty can be so deadly
Be so deadly, be so deadly…
