Atmospheres are tense today
Mother and father are growling again
Silently seated around the table
You're the one that's getting the blame

Father looks at you like a snake
You play with the food upon your plate
No one seems to be on your side
Things that threaten to hurt your pride

Mothers love to be concerned
Using lessons that she learned
Fathers never undestand
When children have the upper hand

Smiling you did your time at school
Crying quietly like a fool
Saturday night and Sunday morning
Did all the things they asked you to do

They say that home is where the heart is
But home is only where the hurt is
Pull the wool over the eyes
Forget your worries that you started

Mothers love to be concerned
Using lessons that she learned
Fathers never undestand
When children have the upper hand

When you stay out every night
The first time from your bedroom site
Started to show some concern
But by then it was too late

Fear it's time to pull away
Shut yours ears to all they say
Be yourself you know it's true
Because in the end what's left is you

Mothers love to be concerned
Using lessons that she learned
Fathers never undestand
When children have the upper hand

Mother loves to be concerned
Using lessons that she learned
Father nevers undestand
When children have the upper hand
