    Pink - Family Portrait

    Uh, uh, some deep ****, uh, uh

    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, bout 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, cuz 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

    (Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)

    We look pretty normal, let's go back to that

    (I promise I’ll be better, Mommy I’ll do

    anything)

    In our family portrait we look pretty happy

    (Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)

    Let's play pretend act and like it comes so

    naturally

    (I promise I’ll be better, Daddy please don't

    leave)

    In our family portrait we look pretty happy

    (Can we work it out? Can we be a family?)

    We look pretty normal, let's go back to that

    leave)

    Daddy don’t leave

    Daddy don’t leave

    Daddy don’t leave

    Turn around please

    Remember that the night you left you took my

    shining star?

    Daddy don’t leave

    Daddy don’t leave

    Daddy don’t leave

    Don't leave us here alone

    Mom will be nicer

    I’ll be so much better, I’ll tell my brother

    Oh, I won’t spill the milk at dinner

    I’ll be so much better, I’ll do everything right

    I’ll be your little girl forever

    I’ll go to sleep at night
