From the albums Romeo Unchained and Hits in Waiting

In cart Not available Out of stock

This, I suppose, was the original demo though it was on the Romeo Unchained album. Written with Glen Burtnick (who also recorded it), it was produced and arranged by my publisher at the time (1985), Rick Neighor. Recorded by several other artists in the 80s/90s. What it wants is to be recorded by a Country Artist. Then we can all have a celebratory drink and walk on over to the bank.

Lyrics

PERFECT WORLD

in a perfect world it would never end like this
there'd be something we could do
in a perfect world lovers wake up with a kiss
and their wishes all come true
but here we are i thought you belonged to me
it seemed like the perfect arrangement
ain't it funny when you find how wrong you can be

oh this ain't no perfect world
i've got my problems
no this ain't no perfect world
you've got your problems too
now what do we do

in a perfect world i'd have been the boy you need
i'd have been somebody else
in a perfect world you'd have been the girl for me
you could have been yourself
we're dying for love but we're afraid to drop our guard
we're lost in a world gone crazy
where the men won't grow up and the women get so hard

i don't know if we'll wind up friends
i don't know if we'll wind up strangers
cause i've never had to walk away from anybody
i wanted as much as you
