They were the Perfect People
Smart, funny, brave, nice

They were the Perfect People
To seek out for advice.

They were the Perfect People
Had the largest shoulders to cry on

They were the Perfect People
Who you could rely on.

No one thought their lives could quake
Their dreams could crumble
Their hearts could break.

No one thought they could fall when they did
We should have glanced twice
Should have looked under the lid.

But now the Perfect People
Are fallen and gone.
They got their fate
From when we were wrong.

So before the Perfect People
Truly meet their end
Make sure you’ve set in stone
That you are THEIR friend.
