No such thing... no such thing You're waiting for the lightning to strike you from the sky You're waiting for th fireworks on the fourth of july But sure as there's a moon in the heavens up above There's no such thing as the perfect love
You read harlequin romances and true life magazines You're the young and you're the restless You relate to every scene I tried to tell you once but I guess it's not enough There's no such thing as the perfect love
Baby what you want from me come and take it But never give your heart for free 'cause I'll break it Yeah I'll break it
You're still listening for the footsteps You sit there by the phone Staring at your posters aren't you tired of being alone You may think you're trying but it isn't hard enough There's no such thing as the perfect love
There's no such thing There's a time and a place for this You gotta be there If you sit around and wait for love it'll get you nowhere Nowhere!
Love can really break your heart if you let it If you're looking for the perfect love just forget it Forget it!
Baby you're so precious you're living out a dream I'm scared that when you wake up you'll look around and scream 'Cause life is no illusion, it really is so tough There's no such thing as the perfect love
