  A               C    E     (7)

1. Perfection is a fallacy

A                 C                   E (7)

  before the wings of your heart

A          C                  E            (7)

  I can woo you and make you sweat

A         C                  E                         (7)

  I will hold you and keep you safe and warm

A                C         E            (7)

        E               G                A             E
