A Perfect Love
Paul Williams

Old enough to know when I've been wrong
Yes and fool enough to think I still might change
I've been out of place
But right on time
And still I've let you down
We've been lovers
And we've fought
It would help me if I thought you might remember me
Not for what I've done
But for the other things I'd always meant to do
'Cause like a child who's learned the ways of life
You've opened up my eyes
With a love that's always new
Yes I owe it all to you

'Cause when the world outside was sure that I was only chasing rainbows
You could find the words to make me strong
Holding on to me and whispering
"There's nothing wrong with rainbows"
You heard my song

And so remember me as one who came to love
And found a perfect love to help along the way
And if tomorrow you should find
That I'm no longer by your side
Then it was time for me to go
And it would help me just to know that you'd remember me
As one who came to love
And found a perfect love to help along the way
