Trying to be Perfect

No matter how hard I try I can't seem to be good enough for you.
No matter what I do there's always something I could have done better.
No matter what I say you don’t listen.
Trying to be perfect it ain’t easy,
Can’t you see that I am trying?
Trying my hardest to be perfect for you.
I have been trying for so long I don’t remember
What I like or who I am.
In the race to be perfect, I have let my true self behind.
Trying to be perfect it ain’t easy,
Can’t you see that I am trying?
Trying my hardest to be perfect for you.
I tell myself I’ll stop, that I don’t care what you think
That I’ll just be me and you’ll love me.
But even as I tell myself this, a voice in my mind is whispering,
You do care and you won’t stop.
Trying to be perfect it ain’t easy,
Can’t you see that I am trying?
Trying my hardest to be perfect for you.
So I’ll keep trying and you’ll keep not noticing,
But who knows maybe one day you’ll wake up
And realize that I am perfect just the way I am
Till then I’ll keep trying.
Trying to be perfect it ain’t easy,
Can’t you see that I am trying?
Trying my hardest to be perfect for you.
