SIMPLE PLAN


Perfect Lyrics

Hey dad look at me
Think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
Do you think I'm wasting my time doing things I wanna do?
'Cuz it hurst when you disapprove all doing
And now I try hard to make it
I just want 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

'Cuz 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 spend 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 want to make you proud
I'm never gonna be good enough for you
I can't stand another fight
And nothing's alright

'Cuz 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
Please don't turn your back
I can't believe it's hard
Just to talk to you
'Cuz you don't understand

'Cuz 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

this song is like my relationship with my dad. he drives an 18 wheeler and doesn't talk to me very often. I used to sing this song to my sister but she left and went to college. my mom doubts my dreams and says I don't sing good. I sing it everyday.

I have a friend that hates his dad because he wont support him and he's the most insecure person I know and He's Perfect to me

I really relate to this. Growing up, my dad was my hero. I even chose my career in preschool, and I stuck with it. He never even told me he was proud I followed in his footsteps.

Dad, I'm sorry I couldn't be perfect. I'll NEVER be perfect, so take me as I am or watch me as I go. I don't care anymore. You'll probably never see this, but this was something I needed to say. :'(
