And though I had slain a thousand foes less one,
The thousandth knife found my liver;
The thousandth enemy said to me,
'Now you shall die,
Now none shall know.'
And the fool, looking down, believed this,
Not seeing, above his shoulders, the naked stars,
Each one remembering.

Perfect, by Fairground Attraction

I don't want half hearted love affairs
I need someone who really cares.
Life is too short to play silly games
I've promised myself I won't do that again.

It's got to be perfect
It's got to be worth it
Too many people take second best
But I won't take anything less
It's got to be

Young hearts are foolish
they make such mistakes
They're much too eager to give their love away.
I have been foolish too many times
Now I'm determined I'm gonna get it right.

It's got to be perfect...

Young hearts are foolish
they make such mistakes

It's got to be perfect...

It's got to be
worth it
it's got to be perfect

I love this song. I don't know why, I just do.

Here's a video of it. Note that you'll likely only be able to appreciate the video if you're aware of the anime that the scenes were taken from, as well as the nature of the characters prominently shown in it.
