Simple Plan - Perfect Lyrics

Hey dad look at me
Think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
And do you think I'm wasting my time doing things I wanna do?
But it hurts when you disapprove all along

And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud
I'm never gonna be good enough for you
Can't pretend that
I'm alright
And you can't change me

'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late and
We can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

I try not to think
About the pain I feel inside
Did you know you used to be my hero?
All the days you spent with me
Now seem so far away
And it feels like you don't care anymore

And now I try hard to make it
I just wanna make you proud
I'm never gonna be good enough for you
I can't stand another fight
And nothing's alright

'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late and
We can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

Nothing's gonna change the things that you said
Nothing's gonna make this right again (right again)
Please don't turn your back
I can't believe it's hard
Just to talk to you
But you don't understand (you don't understand)

'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late and
We can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

'Cause we lost it all
Nothing lasts forever
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect
Now it's just too late and
We can't go back
I'm sorry
I can't be perfect

  8. Benjamin Martinez

    Untitled though still is number one for me and hits the hardest then it's this one & then it's when I'm gone. All three songs resignate more today than they did at the time of release.

  9. Benjamin Martinez

    This song was way ahead of it's time. It hit hard as a teenager growing up but now as an adult it hits even harder. Simple Plan was not as simple as the name suggests.

  49. Black Pants

    Dont be afraid to be a rebel, and dont let your parents stop you from doing the things you want! My parents when i was a teenager, was very discouraging. Yet i didnt listen to them. it very painful living as a kid.. and these songs made me feel well..

    Now, im an independent person, i live outside the country and my parents were very proud of me.. not because they used to support me when i was growing up.. but because i stood up and follow the things that i think is right!

    This song came out when I was in high school, I went threw many years of therapy's there's a few but we don't have time to list them all. But always being alone, with disabilities and then ur best friend dies. This song hit hard when all ur so called dad can say is ur a loser ur not my child

  91. Mar


  92. Мёртвый Внутри

    Though I never lived in USA and 2000s isn't my teen period but I just can feel all this feelings from pop punk, metalcore, emo music somehow. The same with anime and japanese games at ps2-ps3. Huh, I guess rock and weeb personalities have mixed and made me.
    P. S: I'm just 18 now😁


    Me too, I feel like I was born in the wrong place and in a wrong time, I dont belong here, I wish I could grow with the 2000's and not grow over the 2000's everyday I ask myself Why am I still here? I have nothing I lost everything I hate this life I hate my country I hate myself and everyone, I wish I was born back in the 90's and 2000's

    Мёртвый Внутри

    @MCRSkilletREDLPSP ,hey! C'mon man, don't give up. We still can hope that someone will invent a time machine or at least soon or later will appear some band which will be able to give us some feelings from the 2000s. Don't know about your country though but there's no need to hate your life!
