Guster – “Perfect”

Recently, I was talking to a friend about Guster, and how much we both love them, especially their older tunes with heavy percussion. I feel like I’ve also had some recent discussions about addiction and sobriety with a few different friends. Where those two meet is the song “Perfect” – a beautifully written Guster tune that touches upon drug addiction…

“Played follow the leader
Keeping my steps in time
Counting on the wonder ahead
I leave the pain behind
It’s on me
It’s all mine
Go away
They’re my mistakes
They’re not your problem
Pinned down in this heaven
I’ll die a thousand times
Aware of the damage ahead
I’ll leave the pain behind
Another day
A perfect day
A twinge of pain
The sting of the needle”
