Lyrics by Samantha Lee

Remember when as children, parents often drove you mad
And things they said and did could sometimes hurt and leave you sad
You swore you’d never be like them, you’d do things differently
But now you see the apple didn’t fall far from the tree

We all play pass the parcel with old wounds we’ve never healed
They fester behind silent lips unless the truth’s revealed
So talk about your childhood, all the things that caused you pain
Or you’ll just play pass the parcel and hurt gets passed on again.

Disappointment fills you as you slowly start to see
Bad history repeat itself in your own family
You’ve somehow turned out just the same, you copy their mistakes
A trigger from your own child can be all the fuel it takes

We all play pass the parcel with old wounds we’ve never healed
They fester behind silent lips unless the truth’s revealed
So talk about your childhood, all the things that caused you pain
Or you’ll just play pass the parcel and hurt gets passed on again.

To set off a reaction from an old fight with your Mum
As words ring in your ears of a past battle never won
A war of verbal weaponry, hearts ripped then bitter tears
And on it goes, repeat the loop, grief passed down through the years

We all play pass the parcel with old wounds we’ve never healed
They fester behind silent lips unless the truth’s revealed
So talk about your childhood, all the things that caused you pain
Or you’ll just play pass the parcel and hurt gets passed on again.
