Simple Plan

This band was formed when Pierre Bouvier and Chuck Comeau formed “Reset” when they were 13 years old. They succeeded in Canada, where they performed with other bands like MxPx, Ten Foot Pole, and Face to Face. Chuck was the first to leave “Reset”, because he wanted to focus on his studies. Soon, Chuck realized that he had made a mistake  leaving music and he talked with some friends from school: Sebastien Lefebvre and Jeff Stinco. They three  wanted to have a  band but they needed a singer. They  couldn’t find a proper singer so Chuck asked Bouvier (who was fed up because of the bad times his  band was having) to  join Simple Plan. That was how Bouvier joined the band. Chuck also asked David Desrosiers to be the bassist of the group and he accepted.

After making a few tours in Canada and record some demos, Lava Records agreed to record their first album: “No Pads, No Helmets … Just Balls” which was recorded in Toronto with Arnold Lanni as a producer.
In 2004 they released their second album “Still Not Getting Any …”  and in 2008, the third one: ”Simple Plan”.

Some years ago, Simple Plan started a foundation for  young people with problems of drug abuse, suicide attempts, poverty, etc. In some songs, like “crazy” they talk about  these problems.

Their music is difficult to classify: pop-rock, happy-punk,… but this mixture of different styles makes it unique and  has made  them famous all over the world.

“Perfect”

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
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 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 (´2)
