"Perfect World" as written by and Pierre/comeau Bouvier....
I never could have seen this far
I never could have seen this coming
It seems like my world's falling apart
Why is everything so hard?
I don't think that I can deal
With the things you said
It just won't go away

In a perfect world
This could never happen
In a perfect world
You'd still be here
And it makes no sense
I can just pick up the pieces
But to you this means nothing
Nothing at all

I used to think that I was strong
Until the day it all went wrong
I think I need a miracle to make it through
I wish that I could bring you back
I wish that I could turn back time
'Cause I can't let go
I just can't find my way
Without you I just can't find my way

I don't know what I should do now
I don't know where I should go
I'm still here waiting for you
I'm lost when you're not around
I need to hold on to you
I just can't let you go

In a perfect world
This could never happen
In a perfect world
You'd still be here
And it makes no sense
I can just pick up the pieces
But to you this means nothing
Nothing at all
You feel nothing
Nothing at all

Nothing at all

    General CommentGreat song by Simple Plan... I believe that they said in the DVD that this song could be interpreted to be about a break up, but to them was more about death. The new album is great!

    General CommentI love this song so much. The first time I listened to it (i'm a simple plan fan to the max) I almost started bawling. My grandad just died, and I still hadn't gotten over my grandmother's death three years ago. The song made me think of what it was like for my grandad to live without his true love :(

    General CommentYeah, it's about some type of catastrophy going on that's for sure. I think he's wishing that his world was perfect, and nothing bad happened.

    I didn't cry or anything, I've learned to not dwell on the past, but it is a sad song.

    I'm listening to this song right now. It's awesome!

    That's all I gotta say.

    General CommentOk I want to make it clear that I don't cry if a song is just kinda sad. My best friend moved away and I sang this song for her and it made me cry when i played it the next day.
