Mama please stop cryin´ I can´t stand the sound Your pain is painful and it´s tearing me down I hear glasses breaking 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 & 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
CHORUS 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 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 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 has done my family
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 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
Mama I´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 Daddy don´t leave... daddy don´t leave
