Perfect Picture
Words by Dottie Burman, Music by Robin Field

Why was I drawn to him in the first place?
The answer is clear and easy to find.
When I first looked at him,
I knew that the look of him
Fit the perfect picture I had painted in my mind.

Why was I drawn to him in the first place?
Well, he had the smile my portrait had shown.
His eyes held promises,
His lips spelled promises
That in my real life picture I would never be alone.

And he was taller and stronger
Than I could ever be.
And I thought at last I'd be someone
Because the perfect someone wanted me.

That's why was I drawn to him in the first place.
Would I do it again if I met him today?
If I knew what I know,
Would I still choose to stay?
The answer is yes, for I still find
That when I look at him,
I see that the look of him
Still fits the perfect picture
That I cannot seem to get out of my mind.
