Nobody's Perfect
Mike & The Mechanics Lyrics


It must be hard
being an angel
when the devil in your heart
won't set you free
it must be hard
being an angel
when the world has let you down
imperfection all around

Hey look at me
it must be hard
it must be hard
it must be hard.

Nobody's perfect
all of the time
nobody's perfect
we are what we are
there's no perfect reason
and no perfect rhyme
for most of the time
that's what we're looking for.

Gentlemen gentlemen please!
can you please support the notion
of what I'm saying here
that the person here in question
must be an angel here on earth
if they can't see a human being
for what a human being's really worth
gentlemen please!

Nobody's perfect
all of the time
nobody's perfect
we are what we are
there's no perfect reason
and no perfect rhyme
for most of the time
that's what we're looking for.

It must be hard
being an angel
it must be hard
when the world has let you down
it must be hard
being an angel
it must be hard.

Nobody's perfect
all of the time
nobody's perfect
we are what we are
there's no perfect reason
no perfect rhyme
most all of the time
that's what we're looking for...

I can't believe this song didn't hit the top 10 in the USA. Paul Young and his Perfect voice!

@mutigerinky Yes, yes, yes, you are so right....

@mutigerinky It did get airplay in my area though, I thought it was a hit here till I read these comments.

@t uckerton This actually was the first release (before The Living Years) in the USA at the end of 1988, but it didn't chart. I couldn't believe it. It is such a good song!

Stan Yurish

It never even made it into the Top 40.......not even close!! Such a shame..…...this was a great tune.

t uckerton

I don't remember this being on the radio at all in the USA at that time. They should have led off with this song instead of the title track.

Paul Young had such a wonderful voice. Miss him immensely.

Reconnecting with this album today; it was a favorite of mine when I was 13 (I'm now 43!). I can't believe how fast time goes by, I remember the lyrics as if I heard them yesterday.
