A Family United A Family Divided
Songs to Touch the Heart of the Family

THE FAMILY FIGHT

We're dividing all of mother's things
Deciding on her rugs and rings
I can't believe what's happening tonight

Can't split a painting on a wall
Or share a table in the hall
I never dreamt that we could fall apart
It would break our mother's heart

Tonight we're in a family fight
And yet as kids we'd talk the night
But now, we're in a family fight
A family fight

What kind of message does this send
My brother, always my best friend
Do hurting hearts ever mend
Or is this how our story ends

Tonight we're in a family fight
And yet as kids we'd talk away the night
But now, we're in a family fight
A family fight

We don't see this working out
His lawyer called today
Look how fast our lives can change
What would mother say

I never thought that I would see
These winds destroy the family tree
Memories are drifting in the storm
Those frozen moments always kept me warm

Tonight we're in a family fight
And yet as kids we'd talk away the night
But now, we're in a family fight
A family fight

Tonight we're in a family fight
And yet as kids we'd talk away the night
But now we're in a family fight
A family fight

Tonight we're in a family fight
And yet as kids we'd talk away the night
But now we're in a family fight
A family fight



PHOTOS IN A DRAWER

When she passed away
I cried and cried for days
Wanting what I had before
While walking through her room
One Sunday afternoon
I came across old photos in a drawer

Photos in a drawer
She kept old photos in a drawer
Faces and places haven't seen for years
All that time erases the laughter and the tears
Photos in a drawer

I turned to close the door
Slowly sat down on the floor
Looking through those photos old and worn
Treasures from my past
Days that went too fast
In my hands were edges cracked and torn

Photos in a drawer
She kept old photos in a drawer
Faces and places haven't seen for years
All that time erases the laughter and the tears
Photos in a drawer

I got up from the floor
Put the photos in the drawer
Except the few I held so dear
Though life won't be the same
Once I put them in a frame
I'll always have these precious memories near

Her very special moments
She always thought of them that way
I just wonder where the time went
Oh how I miss those days

Photos in a drawer
She kept old photos in a drawer
Faces and places haven't seen for years
All that time erases the laughter and the tears
Photos in a drawer

Photos in a drawer
She kept old photos in a drawer
Faces and places haven't seen for years
All that time erases the laughter and the tears
Photos in a drawer
