Magnolia – Broken Home lyrics

Verse 1:
Monie was a girl who wanted nothing more than to be a star.
How could you let her down?
All she needed was a dad to tell her that
She can be anything she wants so long as it's not him.

Pre-Chorus 1:
Nothing you can say now (nothing you can say) can take it all away.
How could you look into her eyes and not want to reply that you're
Sorry you're a fuck up and you wish that you could make it up but
Your too drunk again and your skin is wearing thin again, from sin and gin?

Chorus 1:
They'll leave this broken home. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
Cause they'd rather be all alone. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
Cause they're tired of fighting the pain of trying to stay sane
In a house with a man who can't see life is not a game.

Verse 2:
(Way-a-a-oh, way-a-oh, way-a-oh)
Johnny was a boy who never had a friend, but his sister, who learned from the best how to let him down.
When Mom died all he could ever think to do was to leave the world he knew to escape from you.

Pre-Chorus 2:
Nothing you can say now can make it all okay.
How you could you walk right past him when you know that he thinks that
You are such a fuck up and he wishes you would shut up so maybe he could sleep yeah and
Maybe he could dream of a...

Bridge:
Dad who has a job and doesn't need to rob and he tells his kids he loves them everyday? Everyday, everyday.

Chorus 2:
They will leave this broken home. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
Cause they'd rather be all alone. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
Cause they're tired of fighting the pain of trying to stay sane
In a house with a man who can't see life is not a game.

Chorus 3:
In this broken home, life is not a game. In this broken home. (Life is not a game)
Oh, when will you realize that you are not alone in the life that you lead it's not about what you need.

Chorus 4:
This broken home. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
You need this broken home. (Bah-dah-bop-bah)
But they're tired of fighting the pain of trying to stay sane
In a house with a man who can't see life is not a game.
No life is not a game.

Outro:
Oh no. (Oh no.) Life is not a game.

    * From the songwriter *
    This song was written about my first love, Ciera, as are most of my songs. When we were first getting to know each other I wanted to find a way to express to her the immense love I felt for her at the time. Little did I realize what an impact writing this song would have on my life. In a way it's what really pushed me to decide to do music as a career. It changed my life forever and I owe it's inspiration entirely to Ciera.
