I Am Not Perfect (Third Version) – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

I Am Not Perfect (Third Version)

someday i will meet that woman
who will take me in their arms
and tell me she loves me
maybe we will have children
but who knows that the future holds
and who knows where this life will take me
i know that i need something to change
but please do not worry about me
because i know you do
but i am fine, i wait for that lifeboat
and cling to my wine
whilst telling jokes with friends
those that make me feel fine
i am not perfect but this is my life
and this is how i like it
i have the sweetest friends
so please, when you look at me
with such care in your eyes
do not worry about me, this is my life
and we can all be just a little closer to the light

James Garratt – October 2009
