"Untitled (How Could This Happen to Me?)" as written by and Pierre/comeau Bouvier....
I open my eyes
I try to see but I'm blinded
By the white light
I can't remember how
I can't remember why
I'm lying here tonight
And I can't stand the pain
And I can't make it go away
No I can't stand the pain

How could this happen to me?
I've made my mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just want to scream
How could this happen to me?

Everybody's screaming
I try to make a sound
But no one hears me
I'm slipping off the edge
I'm hanging by a thread
I want to start this over again
So I try to hold onto a time
When nothing mattered
And I can't explain what happened
And I can't waste the things that I've done
No I can't

How could this happen to me?
I've made my mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just want to scream
How could this happen to me?

I've made my mistakes
Got nowhere to run
The night goes on
As I'm fading away
I'm sick of this life
I just want to scream
How could this happen to me?

    General Commentthis song is about a guy who is drunk and has made so many mistakes in his life so he went out drinking instead of going to his brother's funeral. i know this because i have done lots of research. but also he was drunk and was driving and got in a car accident and killed the other person in it and it was a girl and he was so miserable. but overal the song is made out to his brother who died in a car accident to tell him he is soory for his mistakes and to forgive him before he goes but he left before he got to showhim.

    General CommentThis is a great song and i love Simple Plan. When I first heard this song I never watched the music video to it and as a result of that, i thought he was just moaning about having a bad life and about why bad things always happen to him but now I've watched the video I understand it's true meaning. What I got from the video is that there's a guy that's hating his life for several reasons and ends up attempting to drink away his problems but then when he gets behind the wheel, he loses control and crashes into a incoming women driver head-on which results in her going into hospital and dying soon after from what I see. It also shows the crash effecting others in different places by sending them flying across the rooms they're in at the time of the crash..so sad. :'(
