P!nk – Family Portrait lyrics
Oh Oh some deep shit
Uh uh

Mama please stop cryin'
I can't stand the sound
Your pain is painful and it's
Tearing me down

I hear
glasses breakin'
As I sit up in my bed
I told God 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 3
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 yelling (stop)
I can't stand the sound (can't stand the sound)
Make mama stop cryin'
'Cause I need you around (yeah yeah yeah)
My mama she loves you (I know it)
No matter what she says is true
I know that she hurts you
But remember I love you too!

I ran away today, ran from the noise
Ran away (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 3
Never knowin' what love could be
But I've seen, I don't want love to destroy me
Like it did my family

Can we work it out (Can we work it)
Can we be a family
I promise I'll be better (I promise)
Mommy I'll do anything (Anything to keep you back)
Can we work it out
Can we be a family
I promise I'll be better (I promise I promise)
Daddy please don't leave

In our family portrait (In our family portrait)
We look pretty happy (We look pretty happy)
Let's play pretend, let's act like it
Comes naturally
I don't wanna have to split the holidays (no no)
I don't want two addresses (no no)
I don't want a stepbrother anyway
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
Lets go back to that
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Lets play pretend, act like it
Goes naturally

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I'll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I'll do anything)
In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
Lets play pretend (I promise I'll be better)
Act like it goes naturally, (Daddy please don't leave)
Oh lets go back Oh lets go back

In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I'll be better)
Lets go back to that (Mommy I'll do anything)
In our family portrait (Can we work it out)
We look pretty happy (Can we be a family)
We look pretty normal (I promise I'll be better)
Lets go back to that (Daddy please don't leave)

Don't leave... Don't leave... Daddy don't leave...
Don't leave... Daddy don't leave...
Daddy don't leave... Daddy don't leave... Daddy don't leave...
Don't leave... 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...

Mama'll be nicer
I'll be so much better
I'll tell my brother
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

Ooh no Ooh no
Ooh no Ooh
