lyrics

All of us in a family portrait
Eyes looking up
Smiles to the sky
We've been together my whole life
I know these people from the outside
We are the family of strangers
Oh the time goes by
And oh the time goes by

We get together on the holiday
The same old story like history on replay
New babies are born
Someone's gotta die
I've known these people my whole life

And oh how we fight
Don't get along
I don't know why everybody's always wrong
Oh how we fight some more
Till we feel bad
Hug each other with tears and smiles
We are the family of strangers
All the time goes by
All the time goes by

Lucky for us we got food on every plate
And lucky for us we got love under hate
Some go to church but
Some can go to hell
Well there's one thing for sure
Ain't nobody here ever gonna change

We are the family
That familiar family
We are the family of strangers
Woah
We are the family
That familiar family
We are the family of strangers

All the time goes by
And all the time, all that precious time, goes by

La da da da da da da
La da da da da da da da
Oh
