Perfection Lyrics

She looked for perfection in an imperfect world
'Cause she needed perfection where his hatred was curled
And she tried to remember how heaven had felt
'Cause she new that she had been there before these cards were dealt

And he's just a skeleton, no doubt in his eyes
And she is an angel no one denies
So she turned and she left him to turn night into day
But he grabbed hold of anything just to make her stay

She searched for the lesson that would teach her the skills
To fill her hole with herself not Valium pills
But it's hard to find sisters not poisoned with doubt
It's hard to find sisters who still know what faith's all about

And he's just a skeleton, no doubt in his eyes
And she is an angel no one denies
So she turned and she left him to turn night into day
But he grabbed hold of anything just to make her stay

Just to make her stay
[Unverified]


She came to the table to play a new game
But she is still holding the same cards
But she won't feel your shame
'Cause there is nothing outside her to gain or receive
There's nothing to fuel her along till herself she believes in

He, she
So she had to turn and leave him, anything

Sheila Elizabeth Nicholls (born 9 February 1970 in Colchester, Essex) is a British singer-songwriter, now residing in Echo Park, Los Angeles, California.

Whilst growing up, Nicholls attended Felsted School. She first found fame for performing cartwheels whilst streaking at an England vs. Australia cricket match at Lord's in May 1989, in which she joined fellow school players Derek Pringle and John Stephenson on the field of play; this footage was later included in the video Streaker, narrated by George Best.

Nicholls travelled to the United States later in 1989 and began performing with her band, Sheila Nicholls and the Splendid Frock, in New York City in the mid-1990s.

Nicholls then moved to Los Angeles where she recorded a solo album, the critically acclaimed Brief Strop, and started her own label, Essex Girl Records.

Shortly thereafter, Nicholls signed a deal with Hollywood Records, which began distributing Brief Strop. The song "Fallen for You," from the album, became a hit on College Radio stations and found its way onto the best-selling soundtrack for the movie High Fidelity. She toured extensively with the album, including several gigs alongside k.d. lang.

In mid-2002, Nicholls released her second album, Wake, in which she worked with producers Glen Ballard and Jez Colin. The album's first single, "Faith," co-written with Ballard, received ample radio play and reached the pop charts. Nicholls third album, "Songs From the Bardo" was released in August 2009.
