Lyrics:

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"

This song has always made me ugly cry. Growing up in a broken home is neither fun nor romantic. It's a hell I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies.

This song came out when my parents were getting a divorce. I was 9. I raised my brother. My dad had a new family and his wife still to this day is a bitch. Only her 2 sons matter. If my dad showed my brother and I too much attention she'd threaten him with divorce. My mom's second husband was a crack head. She still has his last name because it was difficult to change it in the first place. I'm 25. My brother is 24 and we just found out he's having a baby. It finally set in that he's all grown up. We're both ex military because that is the only way we could take care of ourselves when we turned 18. I had to grow up when I was 9. If I have kids and happen to get a divorce I'm not going to do that to my kids. My parents were very self absorbed because they were teen parents and suddenly they didn't have to deal with each other anymore. I'll let my kids be kids and I'll take care of them. I'm really fucked up but I managed to make something of myself. I'm on my 2nd career. This shit wasn't easy and it certainly wasn't my fault.

the shittiest thing about broken homes is when the adults stay together thinking it's best for the kids, as if we don't know what's going on.

I know now why my daughter listened to this song. It was me and her dad fighting all the time. She didn’t deserve to have this life. We both got away from him but way too late. Sorry Liz

Growing up in an abusive/toxic household is never easy. I’m almost done. Ready to go...grew up listening to this song and here I am 8-10 years later still listening and relating to each and every single lyric. Sad I have to leave my brother, but after 10 years they still fight and just won’t separate. Pink was honestly my inspiration and still is, I don’t know if a song will ever hurt me as much as this one does each time I listen to it. But it’s worth it

I’m 30 and after all these years it finally hit me, what exactly the little girl represents in the video. I mean, I always understood that she was the “young Pink”, but I was today years old, when I saw clearly as day, that all this is to show how the traumatized kid in the grown-up Pink is messing up with her adult life. I got it now because I realized it myself not so long ago. I used to think that sad childhood is tragic just for ruining what’s supposed to be the happiest time of life. But it’s even more than that.

Momma please stop crying, I can't stand the sound
Your pain is painful and it's tearin' 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, 'bout me and my brother
And this I come home to, this is my shelter
It ain't easy growing up in World War III
Never knowing 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?) Can we be a family? (Can we?)
I promise I'll be better (I promise), Mommy I'll do anything (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 crying, 'cause I need you around
My mama she loves you, no matter what she says it's 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 growing up in World War III
Never knowing 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 work it?) Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Mommy I'll do anything
(I promise I'll do anything to keep you there)
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
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 and act like it comes so naturally
(I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't leave)

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, Daddy please don't leave)

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, 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

I didn’t even have family problems like that growing up but I always liked the song. Boy, Pink is so hurt! 😭 I feel for her even now.

I have always had mixed feelings about this subject (not the song: that's beautiful) Unlike most children of divorce, I WANTED my parents to split up. I actually begged my mother to get divorced from my dad since I was ten years old. They fought all the time, they didn't love each other anymore and I hated to hear them yell and scream when they thought I couldn't hear them so rather than that, I wanted them to go their separate ways. I guess my mind just works diferently because I have never EVER met any child of divorce that felt the same way I did and when I tell people this, they look at me like I'm crazy and ask me if my dad was abusive and when I tell them no then they get it even less that I wanted them to get divorced. They finally did when I was thirteen and I have to admit that I had a hard time not smiling when they told me. I didn't want to hear them fight anymore about money or me so I was happy when they split up. Is there ANYONE ELSE out there who can relate?

All I ever wanted was a family when I was a little girl. I’m 35 and never gonna have one, I feel so lonely.
