For My Brother
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
It would simply say everything
If you would take a pen
And write my name on friend
Who never cared to let me in
Then take a fast ravine that for
Three years swimming straight upstream
And the wind
The wind will drag me down in the end

You live inside my wall and I
I reach back, hit you harder than God falls
Christ amen, amen, amen
You're such a line to break and I
I'm so scared to make another mistake in the end
But I just want to be happy again

Chorus:
Until it all falls down
And where does that leave me?
With things, things, I've got so many things to say
And with a broken heart and a straight face
I'm saying, "brother, help me"

It's just a natural phase that I
I go through and then it's taken away
And then bam!  bam!  I'm fixed
(I'm fixed, I'm fixed, I'm fixed)
But I'm in another place to be where I
I can't sleep without the thought of me being so
So damn sick
(I'm sick, I'm sick, I'm sick)
But take this song, take this song away

Chorus:
Until it all falls down
And where does that leave me?
With things, things, I've got so many things to say
And with a broken heart and a straight face

And he says, "Reach for the girl
Reach for the girl and hold her close
Believe you can shine when you're silver
And I promise you gold, I promise you gold
And whenever you're dark inside, don't let go
No, don't let go
Remember there's rain, and there's candy
And Christmasy winter snow
And remember I love you the same
And I'll strange your pain"
And he tells me to sing, and I sing
And I sing for my brother who keeps me sane
And tells me, "Everything will be OK"

(Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah)
I'm so alone
God, I'm so alone
I'm so alone
(Yeah yeah yeah)
"In everyone's life they have a best friend...someone they can tell anything to.  Mine is my brother.  I love him dearly, and I'd like to ask him to come sing this song called For My Brother with me."

-Justin on Argue With A Tree

For My Brother was written and performed by Last Wish before Blue October existed.
