I Will Never Be What You Want Me To Be
I know you may hate me,
I know I may have dissapointed you,
But I promise you, I can change.
Father I know I have lied to you,
I know that I may have disobeyed you, but
Can you please let that go,
Can we be a family again?
"I promise I'll be better, daddy
Please don't leave. In a family portrait
We look pretty happy, we look
Pretty normal, can we go back to that?"
Those few lines were from P!nk's
Song "Family Portrait." Dad I promise
I'll try to be what you want me to be,
But I'll never be enough for you.
I'll never be what you want me to be,
I'll never be perfect for you,
Oh, yeah, and I'm sorry father If I don
Not live up to your expectations.
