"Rodney Place"

[Intro]
Yeah
Just get this off my chest, man
Yeah

[Verse 1]
When I was eight years old I saw my parents get divorced
Then a couple years passed and we were in and out a court
I was broken and distraught, life taught me to be mature
But my heart was broken early 'cause everything that I saw
Seven thirty Friday, that's Daddy knocking the door
We saw my Dad on weekends, that's nothing less, nothing more
Christmas was the worst time, torn between the both sides
Saw my sister crying that day, that's when my soul died
Looking at my bredrens like I wish I had your life
Your Mommy loves your Daddy and everything's looking fine
Mine can't even conversate for even five minutes without
Getting in an argument, but I just ride with it
Now I make my bed, but I don't ever lie in it
Always on the move like every five minutes
From Daddy's and then to Mommy's, then Mommy's and then to Dad's
Mommy did all of the packing so everything's in the bag

[Chorus]
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
Yeah, see I was praying they would get back together
Like Lord, really, is that such a big task?
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
Yeah, see I was praying they would get back together
Like Lord, really, is that such a big task?

[Verse 2]
I used to get down on my knees and pray that they'll get back together
Mommy left the house and she left my Daddy, you let her
That's exactly what she told us, she told us it's for the better
I never read the letter, the devil's a homewrecker
Me and Dee-Dee suffered, we made it through cold weather
Dealing with Mom's pressure if only they'd known better
I remember vividly walking up to our new house
Momma held my hand and she told me 'This is for you, now'
I asked my Mother when is Daddy coming home
She told me she doesn't know, knew it was set in stone
Knew he was never coming, my bruises were never shown
My house was never a home, they never spoke on the phone
And I remember like it's yesterday 'Look what the pressure made
You made a king, you made a queen, you can be proud of that'
'I wish you treated Mother better, just from looking back
Don't take this personal, I wish you would've stayed with Dad'

[Chorus]
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
Yeah, see I was praying they would get back together
Like Lord, really, is that such a big task?
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
It broke my heart to see my parents apart
Yeah, see I was praying they would get back together
Like Lord, really, is that such a big task?

[Outro]
Yeah
Was that too much to ask?
I don't know, man
Yeah, yeah, yeah
