So after this song
You gon' love me for my honesty
Or you gon' hate me for being me
Yeah, I'm sayin'
One of the two is gonna happen
With all that I can be
Is what I am and who I am

Chasing women when I should be recording
Invite a couple then I invite some more
Next thing you know it's 3 in the morning
And I've only done one song
20k on champagne in the club
Then 20k more just because
That's 40k in 3 hours
But everybody watching my section
So it's alright babe,
I know it may sound silly to you
Truthfully it's silly to me too
But that's what makes this song so true
I'm a little irresponsible most of the time
I'm a man of my word but only when I ain't lying
I say I'm not a hater but I hate to see you shine
Especially if your shine is outshining mine
I wanna be faithful but I keep running in the dimes
And they make it so easy so it's hard to do right
The image I portray making people judge a book
But if they really took the time to look

Then they will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah
They will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah yeah
So they will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah
They will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah

I ain't got a condom here
(Oh no)
Too lazy to run to the store
(And it's cold outside)
But you just met her 3 hours ago
Says the angel on my shoulder
See but the devil he could talk real loud
And on my decision I'm not proud
But by the grace of God I'm here right now
Help being good and older
So it's alright
I know it may sound reckless to you
Truthfully it's reckless to me too
But that's what makes this song so true
I'm a little irresponsible most of the time
I'm a man of my word but only when I ain't lying
I say I'm not a hater but I hate to see you shine
Especially if your shine is outshining mine
I wanna be thankful but I keep running into dimes
And they make it so easy so it's hard to do right
The image I portray making people judge a book
But if they really took the time to look

Then they will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah
They will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah yeah

Oh I do alot of stupid shit
Hoping I never have to pay for rent
It's like I become rather an idiot
Every extra million I get
I thank God for my family and my crew
'Cause I can be alot to put up with
Much love to my people that don't mind
The cracks in Mr. Perfect

So they will see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah
You can see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah yeah
You can see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah
Said you can see the cracks in Mr. Perfect
Yeah

And in the end they all learned a valuable lesson
Perfection is just glorified opinion
When in the grand scheming things it's our imperfections
That truly make us perfect
So do yourself a favor
Find the beauty in your cracks
