Ibeyi – Creature (Perfect) Lyrics

Ibeyi – Creature (Perfect) Lyrics

Feathers and blue scales
Eyes evoking rain
When I lay down in the calm of the deep blue sea
I let the waves wash over me
(Let the waves wash over me)

Yo soy espuma
Y soy ceniza
Y le siembro el corazón a la Tierra

I don’t have to be perfect
Don’t have to be perfect
I finally see I’m just a creature
Don’t have to be perfect
No, I am not perfect
I finally see who I’m supposed to be

Thunder out of pain
Stars in movement
When I realize in the dark, watching them dance
They follow my fingertips
(Follow my fingertips)

Yo soy espuma
Y soy ceniza
Y le siembro el corazón a la Tierra

With my bad poems
My soft belly
Escaping who I’m supposed to be
My childhood prayer
Death watching over me
Accepting who I’m supposed to be

I don’t have to be perfect
Don’t have to be perfect
I finally see I’m just a creature
Don’t have to be perfect
No, I am not perfect
I finally see who I’m supposed to be
