jesse ruben – family lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
i am only nine years old
and i don’t like what i hear
my father on my left
my sister on the steps
my mother in tears
so this is what it looks like when there’s nowhere to hide
this is what it looks like when a family divides

[chorus 1]
mother, i see the way you’re standing
mother, please don’t feel abandoned
mother, i’ve watched you fall apart
so let us in, let down your guard
cause loving you has never been hard

[verse 2]
and i am almost seventeen
and i’m not sure how to act
we’re staring at the stone
and we’re sitting in rows
and wearing all black
so this is what it looks like when you can’t say goodbye
this is what it looks like when my grandmother cries

[chorus 2]
father, i see the way you’re standing
father, please don’t feel abandoned
father, i’ve watched you fall apart
so let us in, let down your guard
cause loving you has never been hard

[verse 3]
today we are both twenty-three
don’t ever think i don’t care
for all of my boring childhood stories
you were always there
so this is what it looks like to be out on our own
this is what it looks like when siblings are close

[chorus 3]
sister, i see the way you’re standing
sister, please don’t feel abandoned
sister, i’ve watched you fall apart
so let us in, let down your guard
cause loving you has never been hard
