Perfect rewrite

My rewrite of Ed Sheeran's song "Perfect".

When I heard the song for the first time I knew it could have been "our song", it fits so perfect to the life we had: being young when we fell in love, just starting a home of ours together and raising children together. I rewrote it to make it more of what we're going through right now.

I found a love for me.

Darling, just drive right in and follow my lead. Well I was a girl, a man found me, generous and sweet. Oh I never knew he was the someone waiting for me.

Cause we were just kids when we fell in love. Not knowing it'd be short, I won't give up that time. But darling you kissed me slow, your love was all I knew and in my heart I'm holding you.

Baby I'm dancing in the dark with you still in my heart, barefoot at the cross, listening to our favorite song.

When God said it was your time, I whispered underneath my breath and he heard it, you were perfect for me.

Well I found my faith, stronger than it was before. I know my dreams, I know someday I'll be at home. I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets, to carry love, to raise children of our own.

We're not still kids but so in love, praying to our God. I know I'll be alright this time. Darling, watch me from above, I'm your girl, you'll be my man. I see my future in your arms.

Baby I'm praying at your grave, with all the tears on my face, barefoot at the cross, listening to our favorite song. When I saw you at your death, looking so peaceful, I don't deserve this, darling you looked perfect that day.

Baby I'm praying that your grave, without you here on earth, barefoot at the cross, listening to our favorite song. I have faith in God above. Now I know I've met an angel in person, and he was perfect.

I don't deserve this, you were perfect for me.
