Of course I'll never speak English as well as a native English speaker...
So, could anyone give advice which one of the forms of the following expression
sounds right Englishwise:
1. "You and I know that perfect is no one"
2. "You and I know that a perfect one is none"
3. "You and I know that perfect one's no one"
4. "You and I know that a perfect one is no one"
5. "You and I know that to be perfect there's no one"
6. "You and I know that no one is a perfect one"
7. "You and I know that no perfect one exists"
Last but worst: "You and I know that perfection don't exist"
It's for a song and I've matched the syllables.
To give you the image, the BEST fitting one is (1.), the most unreal one:
"You and I know that perfect is no one". The number of syllables (10)
and the accent coherence of music and words in that form is really the best!
But I'm aware it's not a correct phrase...
Also I must say that the regular form like "no one is perfect"
(which should be used in proper speaking) doesn't fit the melodic accent,
it creates a hard shift of the accent on "perféct"
and it's really not nicely singable.
The best way to end the phrase should be with a word like "one", "no one" or "none".
I'm really sick of that phrase... (
Please, any suggestions will make me fly of joy!
