Hey, Dad, look at me, think back and talk to me
Did I grow up according to plan?
And do you think I’m wasting my time doing things I wanna do?
But it hurts when you disapprove all along

And now I try hard to make it
I just want to make you proud
I’m never gonna be good enough for you
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 spent 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
But 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

‘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
