And we suffered somewhere along those lines...
When bullies decided to pick on the small kid[one who's quiet and "fresh"]
When humiliation is not an option but a requirement
When we get lost among the crowded hallways and the tardy bell rings
When we land in detention on the first day of school.

Yeah we suffered somewhere along those lines...
When we met the love of our life
When we thought he or she was all we ever wanted[quite frankly, "The One"]
When the trouble begin when our partner couldn't have his way
And forced themselves upon our weakened barriers...

And we suffered somewhere along those lines...
When daddy walked out on mommy
When mommy had to raise us alone
[5 kids and a job fit to only feed two]
When mommy was in the midst of emotional breakdowns and depression
When mommy got sick and our eldest brother had to tend to our needs...

The last line is supposed to be

"Yeah we suffered somewhere along those lines..."

I don't see how that got out of there.
