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 "perfé
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!
