Perfect for You

Perfect for You lyrics

Perfect for You

HENRY
Our planet is poison, the oceans the air
Around and beneath and above you

NATALIE
Um Henry that's true and I totally care

HENRY
I'm trying to tell you I love you
The world is at war
Filled with death and disease
We dance on the edge of destruction
The globe's getting warmer by deadly degrees

NATALIE
And this is one fucked up seduction

HENRY
This planet is pretty much broken beyond all repair
But one thing is working if you're standing there
Perfect for you, I could be perfect for you
I might be lazy, a loner, a bit of a stoner it's true
But I could be perfect for you, perfect for you

Airplanes are falling from quiet blue skies

NATLIE
My schedule's a total disaster

HENRY
The world shuts its ears when a starving child cries

NATALIE
We'd sink like Titanic but faster

GABE
Tsunamis and hurricanes crash on the beach

NATALIE
You'll crash even worse if you date me

HENRY
And peace somehow always stays out of our reach

NATALIE
I'll freak and we'll fight and you'll hate me

HENRY
This world may get more and more messed up with each passing year
But we can be flawless, just you and me here
Perfect for you, just let me be perfect for you
We're both slightly crazy
But you, you amaze me, you do
I'll make my self perfect, perfect for you.
You square all the corners
I straighten the curves

NATALIE
You've got some nerve Henry
And I've just all Nerves

HENRY
But even if everything else turns to dirt

BOTH
We can be the one thing in this world that wont hurt

HENRY
I can't fix what's fucked up
But one thing I know I can do
I can be perfect for you

NATALIE
I can be perfect for you.

BOTH
Perfect for you.

(spoken)
HENRY
Nice house, can I come in?

NATALIE
Oh no.

HENRY
Ok.

GABE
Are you spying on your own daughter?

DIANA
When did she get a boyfriend? How did I miss this?

GABE
Well you kinda miss a lot.

DIANA
Do you think they're in love?

GABE
Who knows? They're young. They're horny. It happens.

DAN
Marry me!

DIANA
What?

DAN
Marry me! Let's have a family. I know, we're too young.
But we're not, I'm almost 23.
And how do you know this isn't a sign saying, we belong together.

DIANA
How do you know it's not a sign saying get new rubbers?

DAN
Because I know its not. I love you, and this baby.

DIANA
Dan,

and NATALIE
This is crazy.
