Family Portrait, familieportret door de ogen van Pink als scheidingskind

De Lyrics:

Uh, uh, some deep shit, 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)

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

Pink en haar vader

Pink-live in NYC-I have seen the rain-1st time with her dad!
From: Pink: Singing With Dad Was 'Awesome', Grammy Award-Winning Artists Performs On The Early Show - CBS News - NEW YORK, July 12, 2006

Pink said some of her drive comes from her father, with whom she performed a duet on her new fourth album "I'm Not Dead".

"Was that the first song you learned as a child?" Chen asks.

"First song I ever learned," Pink says. "My dad wrote the song 40 years ago in Vietnam and just had to do it. Felt like the perfect album to put it on."

Pink says the experience of having her father sing with her was "awesome."

Belows show has the privilege to have Pink's dad onstage, singing "I have seen the rain" for the first time, EVER!!! It's just fan-fuckin-tastic !!! Enjoy
