Pink Songtext: Family Portrait

Momma please stop cryin
I can’t stand the sound
Your pain is painful
and its tearin‘ me down

I hear glasses breakin
as I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn’t mean
those nasty things you said

You fight about money
about me and my brother
And this I come home to
this is my shelter
It ain’t easy
growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, you’ll see
I don’t want love to destroy me like it has done my family

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Mommy I’ll do anything
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

Daddy please stop yellin
I can’t stand the sound

Make mama stop cryin
cause I need you around
My mama she loves you
no matter what she says its true
I know that she hurts you
but remember I love you, too

I ran away today
ran from the noise, ran away
Don’t wanna go back to that place
but don’t have no choice, no way

It ain’t easy growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, well I’ve seen
I don’t want love to destroy me like it did my family

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Mommy I’ll do anything
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Let’s act like it comes naturally

I don’t wanna have to split the holidays!
I don’t want two addresses!
I don’t want a step-brother anyways!
And I don’t want my mom to have to change her last name!

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let’s go back to that
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Act like it goes naturally

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let’s go back to that

In our family portrait
we look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Act like it goes naturally
