Bad Child Lyrics

My family always said I was the bad child
Throwin' me away into the bad pile
All my life been puttin' on a fake smile
Sittin' on my own, feel like I'm exiled
Feelin' like I always do the wrong things
Tellin' all their friends that I'm the...

    I feel bad for her because her family always puts her down. I kinda feel tones and I because my mom always tells my I can do better but I am me and I like the way I am. Tones and I, you should be you not be who your family tells you to be.

    I feel like this song makes me wonder if I really am a bad child since I'm a middle child and 11 so honestly in a kids brain you feel loved most of the time but since I'm bisexual I feel more hated then ever and I feel like its my grandma and grandpa who are really Christian think of me as a disgraced bad child and my dad is very disapproving like the song Johnny Run Away. I love tones and I so much

    It says how she was always put down no matter how hard she tried to impress anyone or make them proud of her so she stopped trying and embraced their interpretation of what she was. They thought she was a bad child so she will be a bad child. She says that she is over what they did to her and now she doesnt care what they have to say. She even explains how they tore her apart(and you took a part of me) and left her with all the nice memories they used to have before. She also they they were never a family implying that how they treated her wasn't the right way to treat a human being, especially their own child.

    Well for me its all about like when she said i guess i allways gonna be the bad child, it meaning that she is already sick of all they have done. So she in mad saying that word.
    She was being said was the bad child with her mother,all time! So when she dealing with their drama, she over it by saying" you took apart of me, left me with the memories.we were bever a family. " and that is true! She over it again by saying"i guess i allways gonna be the bad child" thats all from me

    I read somewhere that Tones was singing in someone else's shoes, and she said it was good to be able to look at growing up in someone else's life. I think the child must have been neglected, and it sounds like the child's family was in debt, and in the video it shows the father being abusive. So I think it must be about no one understanding them and no one bothering to help them.

    what i think of this song is that tones and i family hated her they always put with the bad kids, all her life she been faking a smile she always been sitting by herself like she the bad child. she feels like everything she does is wrong her mother always told her friends that she was a bad kid, she dealing with this drama now she's over it. they took a apart of her and left her with memories that they were never a family now her family is looking for her and acting like everything that happened did not. she said "i'm always gonna be the bad child always gonna be mad child" cause her family will never understand her weird, in her school she had people who doubted her not just her family telling her they can live with her which is not true.
