“Perfect That Way” is a beautiful, heartfelt ballad which is musically reminiscent of the elegant, piano-based ballads of Bruce Hornsby or Don Henley. The song has a special lyric message, telling the story of a girl who was born with a hearing impairment, but is nevertheless a wonderful, intelligent person who is “perfect” in many other ways. It was inspired by Durden’s niece Lindsey, 11, who happens to be deaf.

"Perfect That Way"

She was born a little less than perfect
at least in that doctor’s eyes
he said that she’ll be different
much more than you ever realized
that girl grew up not knowing
the sound of her mama’s voice
God’s gift to her was silence
in a world so full of noise
and she sings with her smile
and talks with her hands
she listens with her heart
so she always understands
she believes there’s more to life
than the sounds that it makes
she’s perfect that way
shes got a sign for the thunder
one for the wind and the rain
she’s the kind that keeps you laughing
and the first to see your pain
and she sings with her smile
and talks with her hands
she listens with her heart
so she always understands
she believes there’s more to life
than the sounds that it makes
she’s perfect that way
she believes there’s more to life
than the sounds that it makes
she’s perfect that way
she was born a little less than perfect
at least in that doctor’s eyes

Truly a beautiful and well versed song--also, the musical video was powerful and hopefully this video will inspire others to sway from the unneccessary urge to 'fight' when it isn't the best option. Anyhow, good and nice of you to share this with AD'ers. :thumb:
