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

We all slept over at Kyoya's house. It was late; I thought that I was the only one up. I heard noises, so I got out of the bed and crept out of the room, down the hall and saw him. Kyoya was sitting in the living room, crying with a glass in one hand and a bottle of scotch in the other. He was sobbing and eventually stood up in rage and flung to bottle against the wall and collapsed on the floor, sobbing. I felt tears come to my eyes and ran back to my room. I got out my phone and rang Tamaki. He didn't answer but i left a message telling him how Kyoya didn't mean to call him those names, but it was hard to speak through the flood of tears.

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

All they ever do now is fight. Tamaki comes back once in a blue moon and they fight. They'll fight about anything and everything. They fight about the money the Host Club brings in; they fight about Hikaru and Kaoru's act and how Honey isn't being cute enough or how I'm not being nice enough. It's so hard to come back to this every day. I don't know how to be sweet to the guests anymore; I don't think I can after seeing what it's done to them.

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

Please Tamaki! Don't leave us! Kyoya, please! I'll do anything; I'll work double! I'll get as many clients as you want! Please Tamaki! I'll be so much better! I'll dress and act more like a girl and I'll be a much better daughter and I won't be mean to you! Please don't leave!

Daddy please stop yellin, I can't stand the sound

Please stop shouting! I hate it when you shout! Please don't yell! Please don't! Please, please just stop!

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

He's crying again. Trust me, Tamaki, he does love you! He does care! I know that he can hurt you, but please understand that we love you too, we want you to stay! We need you!

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

I ran and ran and ran. I couldn't stand the fighting. They all fought today and I didn't know what to do. I don't want to go back; I can't, but I know that I have to. What can I do?! It's so hard. How can love be so cruel?! I never want to love! It's ruined everything!

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

Please, Tamaki! Don't leave us! Please, don't go! What can I do? Please! I'll do anything! I'll be better; I'll be so sweet and I'll help! 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 all of the photos the guests see, we seem normal. We look like we always have; one big happy (slightly incestuous) family. We pretend and act as usual. Please don't go, Tamaki! Don't go to France with her! I don't want to go there to visit! I don't want you to live there! I don't want a new step-brother! I don't want you and Kyoya to split up! Please?!

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

Everyone thinks that all is normal with us. It does seem like it; please, can we go back to normal? I want it all to be the same again. The pictures are lies; we have to pretend like it's all fine and happy; like all is natural.

Daddy don't leave

Turn around please
Remember that the night you left you took my
shining star?
Daddy don

Don't leave us here alone

Please, Tamaki. Come back. Please! We need you! You kept us together! You lit up our lives! Please come back! I need you! 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

Kyoya will be nicer! He won't snap or be mean! Please come back! We'll be better at everything! I'll tell the others too! Please! I'll be more careful! I won't break anything! I'll put my finger down first so the glass won't make an annoying sound! Please come back! I'll be a perfect Host; please! I'll be your daughter! I'll be perfect! I'll wear those girly clothes and be your little girl forever! I'll go to sleep at night and leave you and Kyoya alone! Please come back, please don't leave us!

Heya, sooo... what do ye think?

The song is Family Portrait by Pink.

Please tell me what you think!
