Pink - Family Portrait - Referat

- To me means the song that families need to stick together, and without each other we can’t do anything.
- When everyone is fighting around you, it makes a big influence on you and your personality.
- When Pink says, ‘It aint easy growin up in World War III”, I think she means that it’s hard to grow up when everyone is fighting around you.

I also think that when she says “I don’t want love to destroy me like it did my family”
she means that she doesn’t want her family to separate, and break apart, because of her parents fighting.

The phrase “Remember that the night you left, you took my shining star,” I think it means that when her family separated it broke her heart.

- This song really shows the message that life is better when you have a family to love and count on.
- I chose this song because i know that kind of feeling when parents separate
- This song explains what life is like without a family to be there for you, and how lonely you feel.
- In the song, Pink shows that you can get so lonely and afraid that you run away.
This song gives a message that it is important to work together, and not fight at home because your home should be the place where you should always be safe.

"That was from a poem that I wrote when I was 9 when my dad left. My mom cried for four days when she heard it. I've seen my dad cry three times and that was one of them; that was awful. And then my stepmom cried. She's so strong - she was an Army nurse in Vietnam, and I'd never seen her cry. That was a song I wrote for me, and I didn't realize how much it was going to hurt them." Postet by Pink
