imperfectly

we get a little further from perfection
each year on the road
I guess that’s what they call character
I guess that’s just the way it goes
better to be dusty than polished
like some store window mannequin
why don’t you touch me where I’m rusty
let me stain your hands

when you’re pretty as a picture
they pound down your door
but I’ve been offered love
in two dimensions before
and I know that it’s not all
it’s made out to be
let’s show them how it’s done
let’s do it all imperfectly

- Imperfectly, Ani DiFranco
