"Welcome to my Life" as written by and Pierre/comeau Bouvier....
Do you ever feel like breaking down?
Do you ever feel out of place?
Like somehow you just don't belong
And no one understands you

Do you ever want to run away?
Do you lock yourself in your room?
With the radio on turned up so loud
That no one hears you screaming

No you don't know what its like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what its like to be like me
To be hurt, to feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one there to save you
No you don't know what its like
Welcome to my life

Do you want to be somebody else?
Are you sick of feeling so left out?
Are you desperate to find something more
Before your life is over

Are you stuck inside a world you hate?
Are you sick of everyone around?
With the big fake smiles and stupid lies
But deep inside you're bleeding

No you don't know what its like
When nothing feels alright
You don't know what its like to be like me
To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one there to save you
No you don't know what its like
Welcome to my life

No one ever lied straight to your face
And no one ever stabbed you in the back
You might think I'm happy
But I'm not gonna be okay
Everybody always gave you what you wanted
You never had to work it was always there
You don't know what its like
What its like

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one there to save you
No you don't know what its like
What its like

To be hurt
To feel lost
To be left out in the dark
To be kicked when you're down
To feel like you've been pushed around
To be on the edge of breaking down
And no one's there to save you
No you don't know what its like
Welcome to my life
Welcome to my life
Welcome to my life

    General CommentLongLiveLayne: the point of music is to express yourself, wheather you are lonely or feel that no one understands you which is what i think this outstanding song by Simple Plan is trying to show. Then again everyone is entitled to their own oppinion.

    General CommentSo one time this song came on the radio, and I was singing along to it, and my mom commented, "Hey. It sounds like you." And no, she did not mean that my voice was similar to Pierre's. She meant I'm like the character in this song. I don't dwell on my problems and sob constantly, although sometimes it is necessary to cry and feel bad. But we do have to move on and TRY to be happy, and do something about this. I feel like breaking down a lot. I am often out of place. I don't belong, and few people... wait... no one understands me entirely. I don't even understand me entirely. I have tried to run away before, but I decided to walk through a large puddle of water in a ditch and went back home because I was wet. I can't lock my door, and my radio is very quiet. Actually, I do know what it's like when nothing is alright. I'm not you, so I can't feel what you can in complete similarity. I could go on making personal relations to this song. And no, it does not mean it's because I'm a 'loser'. If I was a loser, it wouldn't be because I can relate to this song. But I do move on. And don't go nuts on making fun of those who like this song. That's 'just plain not nice.' Everyone has different ways of coping with things. (I've made this speech before... in person.) Some people cry, some get mad, some get depressed, some listen to music, some make fun of others, some separate themselves from society. It depends on who you are. So if someone says they like this song, and even though I know it is kind of pathetic, but don't push them closer to the edge. I know we all have the right of opinions, but think about what you're saying before you say it. The people who seek refuge in this song are dealing with it, just in a different way.

    Thanks for listening to another lengthy rant by me. Take care guys.

    General CommentAre you stuck inside a world you hate?
    Are you sick of everyon around?
    With the big fake smiles and stupid lies, while deep inside you're bleeding

    I agree so much with this part as well as the song in a whole. It feels like someone went into my brain and made my feelings into a song.

    General CommentMaking a few negative comments about bands I dont like means that I have made them my life all about them. Your right, I should get a grip.

    General CommentThis song is so importand to me!!! It was the song that got me hooked on Simple Plan in the first place and now I am in complete love with them!! I have been since like what seems like forever now!! This song to me really means to me that a lot of people think that they have it bad but there are other people out there that have it a little worse then them. And some people arent treated fairly at all and they deal with it. And they have to actually work for what they want and arent just handed what they want. And I think that in the fast paced society we live in we dont realize this we just get caught up in our problems and dont stop and think about things. When we really should remember this.

    General CommentSecond time I heard it as I post this. At first it didn't really seem catchy, but now it does.

    General CommentI just think (from the video) this song means that all this shit happens to everyone -- so you're not alone, or he's talking to someone who thinks they understand, when he know's they don't -- that one's pretty self explanitory.

    General CommentLonbLiveLayne-
    Sometimes writing is a way of dealing with problems. I actually think its good but maybe thats because i know what its like to be left out or to be unpopular. This song has let me deal with a lot of things.
