The Dresden Dolls The Perfect Fit Lyrics

I could make a dress

A robe fit for a prince

I could clothe a continent

But i can’t sew a stitch

I can paint my face

And stand very very still

Its not very practical

But it still pays the bills

I can’t change my name

But i could be your type

I can dance and win at games

Like backgammon and life

I used to be the smart one

Sharp as a tack

Funny how that skipping years ahead

Has held me back

I used to be the bright one

Top in my class

Funny what they give you when you

Just learn how to ask

I can write a song

But i cant sing in key

I can play piano

But i never learned to read

I can’t trap a mouse

But i can pet a cat

No i’m really serious!

I’m really very good at that

I can’t fix a car

But i can fix a flat

I could fix alot of things

But i’d rather not get into that

I used to be the bright one

Smart as a whip

Funny how you slip so far when

Teachers dont keep track of it

I used to be the tight one

The perfect fit

Funny how those compliments can

Make you feel so full of it

I can shuffle cut and deal

But i can’t draw a hand

I can’t draw a lot of things

I hope you understand

I’m not exceptionally shy

But i’ve never had a man

That i could look straight in the eye

And tell my secret plans

I can take a vow

And i can wear a ring

And i can make you promises but

They won’t mean a thing

Can’t you do it for me, i’ll pay you well

Fuck i’ll pay you anything if you could end this

Can’t you just fix it for me, it’s gone berserk…

Fuck i’ll give you anything if

You can make the damn thing work

Can’t you just fix it for me, ill pay you well,

Fuck ill pay you anything

If you can end this

Hello, i love you will you tell me your name?

Hello, i’m good for nothing – will you love me just the same?
