A Perfect Soul

about

This was recorded around 2007 when living on Oakland Street in Ames, Iowa. The song is loosely based on religious views and admiration for another person I had met around that time. It was supposed to be a Keepers of the Carpet song, but I don't think the band ever took much notice to it after I sent out the demo. At 1:59 you can hear a Dr Pepper can fall off my desk in the middle of my vocal take.

lyrics

Go, Go and get perfect.
Go and get perfect.
A perfect soul.
Your love is perfect.
Your love is perfect.
A perfect goal.

I'd love to tell ya,
but I don't want to tell you
what you already know.

Your love is perfect.
Your love is perfect.
A perfect soul.

I'd never run away.
I'd never run away.
Cuz I got nothin' to hide.
I'll send my lady back.
I'll make her pack her bags.
Cuz I got nothin' to say.


Go, Go and get perfect.
Go and get perfect.
A perfect soul.
Your love is perfect.
Your love is perfect.
A perfect goal.

I'd love to tell ya,
but I don't want to tell you
what you already know.

Your love is perfect.
Your love is perfect.
A perfect goal.

I'll never run away.
I'll never run away.
Cuz I got nothin' to hide.
I'll send my lady back.
I'll make her pack her bags.
Cuz I got nothin' to say.

I love ya.
I need ya.
I'm here to stay.
I'll hug ya.
I'll feed ya.
I'm here to stay.

I'll never run away.
I'll never run away.
Cuz I've got nothin' to hide.
I'll send my lady back.
I'll make her pack her bags.
Cuz I got nothin' to say.

I love ya.
I need ya.
I'm here to stay.
I'll hug ya.
I'll feed ya.
I'm here to say.
I love ya.
I need ya.
I'm here to stay.
I'll hug ya.
I'll feed ya.
I'm here to stay

Go, Go and get perfect.
Go and get perfect.
A perfect soul.
