Perfect Lyrics - Simple Plan

Review The Song (61)

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 to make you proud
I'm never gonna be good enough for you
I 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 you 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

I'm so sorry. | Reviewer: Kristy | 3/18/14

I had never heard this song before until my dear friends son hung himself this weekend. He left a note that referenced this song. Please if you feel alone or unhappy talk to someone. Life is to precious to take. Remember God is always there...

Great song | Reviewer: J Heat | 11/2/12

This song isn't about parents treating you bad or parents hating you. It's about how parents have this idea that you're going to perfect but it's not the reality. Songs like this are telling them that kids can't grow up according to plan. That parents don't understand us. It's a great and powerful teen agnst song. Listen to it if you haven't already!

Advice | Reviewer: Jon | 3/19/11

Attention, All of you guys going through a rough time. Im a college student majoring in pschology and i had to step in and give my advice. When your parents treat you bad, its bc they have problems with themselves and want you to feel pain. When you cut yourself or consider suicide, you are feeding into theyre evil, thats what they want you to do. Instead, take a look in the mirror, realize that your life is worth living. Dont show your parents any love, even if its hard not to, just try to forget theyre there. Try your hardest to become something in this world, which is what your parents dont want, they want you to fall bc theyre rooted in evil. I know im rambling, but just dont let their pain and anger reflect on you. Good luck

a disappointment | Reviewer: Liz | 12/28/10

this song reminds me on how my dad compares me to both my mom and my brothers. my mom is perfect academically and my brothers screwed up. i feel all this wright on my shoulders and i can't handle it. My dad yells at me when i don't do something the way he wants and it seriously hurts. he wants his little girl to not end up on the streets but he has pushed me too much and too hard. :(

i know the feeling | Reviewer: kelly | 12/25/10

my dad, he treats me like dirt for a raceist reason. i'm half mexican. for all the reasons to hate ur kid, u pick da reason that she was born with, her race. i mean, he wasn't even legal in the u.s. til i was 2! he thinks that americans r da best and no one can come close to them, execpt, da people from chile, his home country. he thinks he's perfect and anyone that isn't like him is, wrong, and stupid, and ugly, and meantally ill. i mean, it's not like i even look mexican! i have light skin! i don't even get my skin color from my dad! i get it from my mom, the "good 4 nothing mexican!" he said that the only reason he never hit my mom was because he didn't want to touch her mexican skin! yet somehow i was born! oh! and the worst part? he has 2 other kids that r half italian and he LOVES them! he won't even help my mom out with money because im half mexican. my mom works long hours and she comes home tired! sometimes i hear her cry at night. i wish i had a diffrent dad!

im helpless | Reviewer: Alex | 10/20/10

this song is the only thing that gets me through the day. i wonder if there is anyoone out there that hears their dad tell them they hate them everyday like mine does. all i every hear is your the worst son a person could ask for and where did i go wrong with him. i would just like to say ever since i came out to him as gay he has disowned me and told me he will never be proud of me! you cant even imagine what it feels like to be 17 openly gay and completley HATED by your dad. PLEASE I NEED HELP! this song is what i go in my room and listen too this and let it all out; the anger the saddnest. IM SO UNHAPPY!!

You Hearts on fire. | Reviewer: Dad of sons | 8/4/10

I grew up without my father so its hard for me to feel the pain that you guys feel cause i have my own. I heard this song and it made me pause and just listen to every single word and i felt it. I love you guys. if you ever feel afraid or that you want to do you then don't let anyone change the real you. I have two sons i'm 31 and they come to me for advice all the time. Lifes hard as it is and if your dad don't get you their are other people that will listen so please don't hurt yourselves because in our life you have something to live for. Let the music help you live let it flow through you clearing all the anger and frustration freeing you of all that brings you down. Open your eyes lift your head and write a song or smile at people when you past them and dont ever be thrown down in the dirt. Live, Love, Cry its the best you can ever do. take care and smile on.

Perfect | Reviewer: Marky | 8/10/10

This song reminds me of my boyfriend and I. We always fight and I try to remind him that not everything is perfect and that I'm sorry I can't be everything you want, but I try my best. This song means so much to me.

i live this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/11/10

Yeah I understand. My gramndma treats me like I am dirt. I have lived with her since I was 5 years old. When I was little I was her little girl. But once my mom came back into my life and I started getting older she would tell me that Im a screw up or going no where in life. I lived through this verbal abuse until I finally turned 18 and graduated and moved out. I made sure I rubbed my diploma in her face. But even though Im out of her house, it still goes on. No matter what I do, it is never good enough. Now she thinks I'm a disgrace because Im dating a girl. Im happy, why cant she ever be happy for me??? This song helps me so much, and I just wish I could tell her how I feel but I just let her keep saying those things that bring me down and cause me to cut myself. There were numerous times where I have tried to kill myself because of the continuous put down she causes me to go through. I just cant take it anymore....

I want my dad... | Reviewer: Djegreg | 5/23/10

Yes, this song reminds me with my dad too. He was so nice to me. He used to sleep with me when I was sick. And he used to bring me to his office. BUT IT'S ALL CHANGES after my dad has another woman-but he has not has another woman now. I saw it with my own eyes. Also I've been tortured by him and he blamed me. We had a better situation when I was in senior high school. But now he changes again. We never have a good conversation with me. I tried hard to be the best student in the class, but even I've tried to be the best, he didn't respond to it. I want my dad back.

sweet | Reviewer: craig | 3/24/10

this is one of my favorite songs because of the way it reminds me of how my dad tells me im going to end up homeless living on the streets if i dont try harder i use this for a way to let my anger out
