Perfect Lyrics

Play "Perfect"
on Amazon Music

I found a love for me
Darling just dive right in
And follow my lead
Well I found a girl beautiful and sweet
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me
'Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not...

    Yes, it's a beautiful love song, written by Sheeran (as he just announced) about his fiancé who he has known since they were kids. The strength of this song, in my humble opinion, is the imagery it creates, particularly in the chorus. Admittedly, it likely appeals more heavily to the female population, as it's one of those pinnacle songs that any woman would love to hear her man sing to her. From my vantage point, I don't think he's speaking simply about her physical appearance when he says she's perfect. The line where he makes it clear he doesn't care what she's wearing (while she thinks she's a mess) speaks clearly to that. Not sure I've ever heard a more romantic song and it probably will become a favorite at weddings. There is much competition for that honor, though.

    Love the song. Perfect means perfect to him. It doesn't mean she looks a certain way or a certain size. When you love someone what's perfect to you may be anything but, to someone else. It doesn't matter to you.

    I think this is a wedding song. It is meant to be one. It talks about how he met this girl and he fell in love with her and he thinks she is perfect. He realizes that she is the one and that is perfect and he wants to spend the rest of his life with this girl. One of the reasons why I think this is because in the song it says that they are dancing in the dark, with you between my arms, barefoot on the grass, listening to our favortite song, when I saw you in the dress. What stands out the most is that he said they are dancing in the dark and when he said I saw you in the dress. THIS SONG IT MEANT TO BE A WEDDDING SONG. IT FITS IT PERFECT. IT JUST FITS TO BE A WEDDING SONG!!!!!

    This is the quintessential wedding song. Placed perfectly after Shape of You, which in my opinion is a song about a brand new relationship with a girl and not finding that true emotional love for her just yet, but the physical aspect of the relationship is all there. Then in Perfect he realizes that this girl is the love of his life and he could see himself being with her forever. The song literally describes a wedding dance: "Dancing in the dark, with you between my arms, barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song, when I saw you in that dress...."
