The Perfect Gift
Joshua Bassett Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I still remember the first time we ever kissed
We didn't need no mistletoe to know what loving is
Through every up and down, there's one thing that stays true
Christmas is better every second it's with you

I don't got much to give
So I hope you think this is
The perfect gift that I could give
To the perfect gift that ever lived
Yeah, this song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you, you

I can't pretend that this has been the perfect year
You held my hand through every tear
You were a home for me when I had no one there
And I promise you that I'm not going anywhere

I don't got much to give
So I hope you think this is

The perfect gift that I could give
To the perfect gift that ever lived
Yeah, this song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you, you

When seasons change and I've lost my way
It'll be okay with you by my side
And darlin', that's why

This song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you, you




When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you

LYRICS

I still remember the first time we ever kissed
We didn't need no mistletoe
Didn't know what loving is
And through every up and down
There's one thing that stays true
Christmas is better every second it's with you

I don't got much to give
So, I hope you think this is

The perfect gift that I could give
To the perfect gift that ever lived
Yeah, this song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you, you

I can't pretend that this has been the perfect year
You held my hand through every tear
You were a home for me when I had no one there
And I promise you that I'm not going anywhere

I don't got much to give
So, I hope you think this is

The perfect gift that I could give
To the perfect gift that ever lived
Yeah, this song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you, you
When the perfect gift is you, you

When seasons change and I've lost my way
It'll be okay with you by my side
And darling, that's why

This song's the second best that I could do
When the perfect gift is you.

I still remember the first time we ever kissed
We didn’t need no mistletoe
To know what loving is
Through every up-and-down
There’s one thing that stays true

Sara Oliveira

@Kássio Gomes there's a lot of scenes in this series done in the first attempt. First Olivia scene (the ukulele one), the scene of Wondering, the scene where Ricky says "I love you" in the first season, etc.

Kássio Gomes

I'm sure a scene isn't done in the first attempt.

Victoria Yang

@VQuick no they wrapped up filming season 2 in the summer of 2020 (if you watch the bts of some scenes, there's posters in the back that say summer 2020)
