Nobody's Perfect Lyrics

When I'm nervous I have this thing yeah I talk too much
Sometimes I just can't shut the hell up
It's like I need to tell someone anyone who'll listen
And that's where I seem to fuck up, yeah
I forget about the consequences, for a minute...

    It's not about a love story. It's about Jessie J's friend whom trusted her with all her secrets and Jessie told the world. This is her apologising.

    its not that, its about one of her close friends who told her a secret but she (jessie j) blabbed and it came back to bite her in the bum, and now she's singing about how she's so sorry.

    When Jessie j says that she wishes that it was kept between her and someone else she is saying that she broke a secret and she also says that if she wants to keep the person, she is going to have to change, and so with that i feel as though she means that she is hiding something that reveils her true self, and she is scared to show people who she really is, because although she knows that nobodys perfect she doesnt want to let people down, also that she just wants people to know before they start to judge her that even jessie j is inperfect.

    we cant always be perfect, certainly not. we can only be ourselves and we were born to perceive the nature of kindness and find our personality with the upbringing of our childhood. nobody's perfect gives this interpretation that we are all different, okay we can say mean things, make mistakes, but we cant change to make no mistakes, to constantly be nice all the time. i mean its polite to of course but we have to hurt to have emotions and feelings. i'm not saying that its good to be mean to each other because its not. we all say things we regret and the only thing we can do to help this, is apologise. sometimes we cant help but say things we cant say, because it just bubbles up inside of us and we have to tell people. we all have different personalities and that is what is expected of society. we cant all be the same, so we will be different. sometimes we forget how much we appreciate life and the people around us, and sometimes this gets lost in the words we say because we are so focused on trying to be a different person, or focused on other things, that we lose ourselves int he person we are trying to be. but why should we be trying to please others if we cant be happy with who we are to begin with. its about realising that we should care for the people around us, and we can sometimes get lost in the mix, sometimes we forget these things and its not until we realise we make these mistakes that we have to start realising what is real that what isn't. nobody is perfect, we all have to realise that, accepting people for who they are and not who we want them to be. Stop doubting, start living.

    It kinda sounds like she is singing about outing her Girlfriend. "Jessie told the whole world how we feeling". and just in general revealing the extent of a relationship when the other person wasn't ready.

    Someone has trusted Jessie. But she just had to let the whole world know about her closest friends secret. She feels bad about everything that has happened." I guess Karma comes back around" she has done something wrong and now she has suffered the conserquences. It's not about a love story. She says NOBODYS PERFECT, she's right nobody know if her friend probably treated her bad. But her friend just seems that forgiveness is just not the answer.

    Clearly its about a guy and a girl who had an arguement and in the heat of it all the girl (Jessie J) and talked about things that happened between them she should have never revealed therefore losing the guy. She is saying soory and has learned her lesson saying she 'never meant to hurt' him and wants a fresh start
