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, 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

Let’s play pretend, act like it goes naturally

Remember that the night you left you took my 
shining star? 
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

“as we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to let us down, probably will. we will have our heart broken and we’ll break other’s hearts. we’ll cry because time is flying by. so take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely and love like you’ve never been hurt. so, live on the moment cause every second spent angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.”

“Take chances because you never know how perfect could something turn out to be <3”

“And by the way now.. WHERE’D ALL THE GOOD PEOPLE GO?!”

“Uno no sabe lo que tiene hasta que organiza su cuarto”

“Uno no sabe lo que tiene hasta que organiza su cuarto”

“Excuses are self-made reasons for not doing what we are capable of doing. Do what needs to be done.”

“Laziness is a deasease with a simple cure: ACTION. Just do what needs to be done.”

“Before we turn out the lights and close our eyes
I’ll tell you a secret I’ve held all my life
Its you that I live for, and for you I die
So I’ll Lay here with you til the final goodbye”

“Don’t hate the player, hate the game”
