Sum 41 Pieces Lyrics

Last updated: 10/20/2013 06:23:39 AM

I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I thought it'd be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

Perfect...? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/20/13

I tried to be perfect, to make my life perfect. I think I succeded. I had never been unhappier my whole life, and some days later I got a burn-out from all stress, got depressed, lost everything I was proud of, I felt like I was the biggest failure on earth. I started to have panic attacks on almost a daily-basis... Now, one year later, I'm in the hospital and have been for a month, for eating disorder, self-harm, suicide plans and depression... So, yea, I tried to be perfect, it just wasn't worth it, nothing could ever be so wrong...

but noone believes me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/13

when i discovered this song i immediately thought that it was written for me. this song makes me cry bcuz it reminds me that all the times i tried to be perfect i never made it. my best friends are now mad at me..and i am to blame .i never thought that being real being you would make them happier.and now being lonely depresses me.but the only thing that im proud of myself is that feeling down and not trying to cheer up urself will never lead anywhere...

And I'm Better Off On My Own... | Reviewer: Annaliese | 4/8/13

Yesterday my friend came over.
We had a fun time,
But all of a sudden, he became quiet, looking at me strangely.
I had been thinking about things, but his silence brought me out of it.
I asked him what was wrong. He shopk his head, only saying that he was going to play a song for me on his phone. Pieces.
As I listenned to the song, it confused me, until I realized why he had played it... for both of us...and it makes me sad...but I still like this song.

Don't ever let yourself down. | Reviewer: Eddie S. Tanabe | 10/9/12

Hey guys, I was just reading all those reviews and I got surprised. I loved a girl for 6 years, and maybe until now I still love her, I don't know anymore. I suffered too much because of her. But after all that, everytime a sadness comes you shouldn't let it in. Because everytime it happens you get stronger. I learned too many things, and now I can control my feelings just thinking to myself like "No, I won't think about how bad or sad I am. I'll only think about the good things. How to solve the problems and how good I will be feeling when I solve them." and you have to keep moving! Don't ever get stuck in the time, don't waste your time sitting alone crying cuz this won't change a thing. You have to make things get better and think positive.
Of course, those things I'm saying here, they're not easy to do. Just think to yourself "NO, STOP CRYING, I GOTTA BE STRONGER, I CAN FACE IT, I BELIEVE IN MYSELF.". And yes, believe in yourself, cuz you're the only one who really know you, how strong you can be, how good you can feel, you can do anything you want, but only if you really believe in yourself.
I could face it cuz I believed in me. Remember, everytime you'll get stronger and you'll see.

Guys, I hope this helps you, cuz it helped me for sure. Only you can change it.

trying to be someone im not | Reviewer: shamu | 9/23/12

wow after reading the reviews,it made me realize that im not alone with this problem...trying to be perfect for others that we forget who we really are. thats just so sad and wrong.
right now,i have no idea who am i and what i want in life because i am too busy being the perfect person for my family and friends.
i just wish everyone can be anyone and accept them for who they are and not expect or change...

if you just believe me... | Reviewer: rajana | 6/3/12

wow! this song is like the lines i wish i could say to people i loved and still loves but somehow they dont trust me they just dont believe in me when i've done nothing but try to be perfect that i do what they wanted but..... nothing just that everything is ouch....

Being perfect | Reviewer: epistme | 5/12/12

I've tried so hard to become something other people who never become. Spenting all my money just to travel around the country and help incest victims or just kids who have junkieparents or drunks. Becoming a saint - the light of some people. But no one will believe you, if they havn't got the help. That all the bad in life is simple an illusion, and so is all good.
Reality is a perfect lie. Only few in this world can see that, and those people are often the real artist if they havn't commited suicide long ago.
But gone to that point that it will never be worth it, to spent rest of my life saving people and making up a new great illusion of them. Every year I am cursed to save a person from commiting suicide - for once I didn't and he went against the train in the dark and got hitted. My luck... this was just number 8.

thankyou sum 41 :) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/11

this song reminds me of a friend of mine. he was always telling me how bad he was feeling, that he was depressed, and i couldn't help him. i sent him this song, and he told me that he listened to it now every time he felt bad, and that it made him feel better. i'm so grateful that sum 41 wrote this, because if it weren't for this song, maybe he wouldn't still be here by now. ♥

where does the perfect life wait me? | Reviewer: Dilara | 12/12/11

supposing that,this song wrote by sum 41 for me.I tried to be perfect for my friend surrounding but they didnt make friendship with me.I'm sad every day and sometimes I dont want but I cry... I've got good friends of course but I want to have more.This song makes me sad too,cause this song sings me.Too many persons laugh at my face because they think that I'm ugly but this isnt true.Because of them I can't look at mirror.

I'm better off on my own | Reviewer: Agbonma Idahosa | 10/9/11

Its so frustrating if people like you for all the wrong reasons e.g beauty and smile, and their association with you does harm to you instead of good,you can't be yourself around them because they have a picture of you that is unrealistic.,breaking away seems the only option,to think and know if you need them around.
