Pearl Jam Daughter Lyrics

Last updated: 03/18/2014 07:12:02 AM

(You guys ready?)

Alone...listless...breakfast table in an otherwise empty room
Young girl...violins(ence)...center of her own attention
The mother reads aloud, child tries to understand it
Tries to make her proud
The shades go down, it's in her head
Painted room...can't deny there's something wrong...

Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me...

She holds the hand that holds her down
She will...rise above...

(Above!)

Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me...

Don't call me daughter, not fit to
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me daughter, not fit to be
The picture kept will remind me
Don't call me...

The shades go down
The shades go down
The shades go, go, go...

my mom | Reviewer: daisy valle | 11/22/13

This song hits home because my grandma was abusive to my mom. She would trash her room and make her clean it,was mean and it traumatized my mom. This song makes my mom cry, she is wonderful and is nothing like my grandma. I always say that this song is for her and about her, but it will never be for me. I love her she is my best friend.

In Two Legs... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/9/11

Actually what he sings in the Alive In Two Legs version is the secod verse of Neil Young's Rockin' In The Free World... my band plays that way this cover, we just love the contrast of this kinda positive song with it's story and then the image of the abortion from Neil Young's song

Another Version | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/3/07

On the 'Live On Two Legs' album, at the end of 'Daughter' there is another part. Is it possible to add this version of Daughter to the lyric set? Thankyou...

Right | Reviewer: Me | 4/22/07

He's right guys. it has to be a G not a D

Open G | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/18/07

But really you have to tune the bottom string to G not D
