Diana:
They're the perfect loving family, so adoring
And I love them every day of every week
So my son's a little shit, my husband's boring
And my daughter, though a genius, is a freak
Still I help them love each other
Father, mother, sister, brother, cheek to cheek
Natalie, it's 4 in the morning, is everything ok?
Natalie:
Everything's great, why wouldn't it be great? It's great!
Diana:
Honey, you need to slow down. Take some time for yourself. I'm going to have sex with your father.
Natalie:
Great, thanks, I'm so glad I know that.
So, it's times like these I wonder how I take it
And if other families live the way we do
If they love each other or if they just fake it
And if other daughters feel like I feel too
'Cause some days I think I'm dying
But I'm really only trying to get through
Gabe:
For just another day, for another stolen hour
When the world will feel my power and obey
Natalie and Gabe:
It's just another day
Gabe:
Feeling like I'll live forever
Natalie:
Feeling like this feeling never goes away
Natalie and Gabe:
For just another day...
Dan:
When it's up to you to hold your house together
A house you built with patience and with care
But you're grappling with that gray and rainy weather
And you're living on a latte and a...
Diana and Dan:
...Prayer
Can you keep the cup from tipping
Can you keep your grip from slipping in despair?
For just another day
Dan:
In the hustle and the hurry
You want to wipe you worry clean away
All:
For just another day
Diana:
I will keep the plates all spinning
Diana and Natalie:
With a smile so white and winning all the way
All:
'Cause what doesn't kill me doesn't kill me
So fill me up for just another day
Diana:
It only hurts when I'm here
Dan:
It only hurts when I try
Gabe:
It only hurts when I think
Diana:
It only hurts when I breathe
Natalie:
It only hurts when I cry
Dan:
It only hurts when I work
Gabe:
It only hurts when I play
Natalie:
It only hurts when I move
All:
It only hurts when I say...
It's just another day
Diana:
A busy, busy day
Gabe:
And the morning sun is stunning
Diana:
I will hold it all together
Dan, Gabe and Natalie:
And you wished that you were running far away
Diana:
I will hide the mess away
All:
It's just another day
Diana:
I'll survive another day
Gabe:
Birds are singing, things are growing
Diana:
And I will pray to hold on just this way
Gabe, Natalie and Dan:
And you wish that you'd be going
But you stay, you stay
Diana:
For my family's sake
Dan:
All you know is now or never
Diana:
I'll take what I can take
Natalie:
And you know that for forever
Diana:
I'm only just awake
Every day is just another and another and another
I will hold it all together
We're the perfect loving family
If they say we're not, then fuck 'em
We're the perfect loving family
I will keep the plates all spinning
And the world just keeps on spinning
I think the house is spinning...
