Well, caught in the middle of a teenage love affair
Kids get it the worst, you know
She was 16, her parents couldn't take her anywhere
She'd already started to show
She had Amy inside of her
Amy, you gotta let it go
You would think she didn't want you
But how could that be so?

So the daughter let her hair down, just like her mama did
The couple didn't stand a chance
In anything and everything, looking out for God-forbid
But man, could the girl dance
And it was a family
And the family, last time I checked
Was a group of people who give you love
When you least expect

So the parents split-up like the whole Grand Canyon
The story unfolds some more
You can't please your mother and your father wasn't there for you
Now, the brother you adore is saying
"Amy, you used to
Carry me underneath your arm
And maybe your little brother knows
That you can't cover up the scars

And it had nothing to do with you
And it had nothing to do with me
And it had nothing to do with love."
Maybe that's the craziest thing in the whole biography
Oh yeah

So, the feelings buried, lit a fuse to the bomb
And the daughter got far away
She always was a fighter with an agony inside her
And you can hear what her daughter says
She says, "Mommy
Why are you so angry?
And it's time that you stopped blaming me and everybody else
Maybe someday you'll forgive yourself."

And the family
And the family, last time I checked
Is a group of people who give you love
When you least expect
For this heart that we can not protect
For this heart that we can not protect
I got this love and this great respect
For this heart that we can not protect
Yeah
