the perfect fit lyrics – the dresden dolls

“the perfect fit”

i could make a dress
a robe fit for a prince
i could clothe a continent
but i can’t sew a st*tch

i can paint my face
and stand very very still
its not very practical
but it still pays the bills

i can’t change my name
but i could be your type
i can dance and win at games
like backgammon and life

i used to be the smart one
sharp as a tack
funny how that skipping years ahead
has held me back

i used to be the bright one
top in my cl*ss
funny what they give you when you
just learn how to ask

i can write a song
but i cant sing in key
i can play piano
but i never learned to read

i can’t trap a mouse
but i can pet a cat
no i’m really serious!
i’m really very good at that

i can’t fix a car
but i can fix a flat
i could fix alot of things
but i’d rather not get into that

i used to be the bright one
smart as a whip
funny how you slip so far when
teachers dont keep track of it

i used to be the tight one
the perfect fit
funny how those compliments can
make you feel so full of it

i can shuffle cut and deal
but i can’t draw a hand
i can’t draw a lot of things
i hope you understand
i’m not exceptionally shy
but i’ve never had a man
that i could look straight in the eye
and tell my secret plans

i can take a vow
and i can wear a ring
and i can make you promises but
they won’t mean a thing

can’t you do it for me, i’ll pay you well
f*ck i’ll pay you anything if you could end this

can’t you just fix it for me, it’s gone berserk…
f*ck i’ll give you anything if
you can make the d*mn thing work

can’t you just fix it for me, ill pay you well,
f*ck ill pay you anything
if you can end this
h*llo, i love you will you tell me your name?
h*llo, i’m good for nothing – will you love me just the same?
