Broken Home

Album: Sounds Good Feels Good (2015)
  • They would yell, they would scream, they were fighting it out
    She would hope, she would pray, she was waiting it out
    Holding on to a dream
    While she watches these walls fall down
    Sharp words like knives, they were cutting her down
    Shattered glass like the past, it's a memory now
    Holding on to a dream
    While she watches these walls fall down

    Hey mom, hey dad
    When did this end?
    Where did you lose your happiness?
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home
    Who's right, who's wrong
    Who really cares?
    The fault, the blame, the pain's still there
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home

    Wrote it down on the walls, she was screaming it out
    Made it clear, she's still here, are you listening now?
    Just a ghost in the halls
    Feeling empty, they're vacant now
    All the battles, all the wars, all the times that you've fought
    She's a scar, she's the bruises, she's the pain that you brought
    There was life, there was love
    Like a light and it's fading out

    Hey mom, hey dad
    When did this end?
    Where did you lose your happiness?
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home
    Who's right, who's wrong
    Who really cares?
    The fault, the blame, the pain's still there
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home

    You've gotta let it go, you're losing all your hope
    Nothing left to hold, locked out in the cold
    You painted memories then washed out all the scenes
    I'm stuck in between a nightmare and lost dreams

    Hey mom, hey dad
    When did this end?
    Where did you lose your happiness?
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home
    Hey mom, hey dad
    When did this end?
    Where did you lose your happiness?
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home
    Who's right, who's wrong
    Who really cares?
    The fault, the blame, the pain's still there
    I'm here alone inside of this broken home
