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'm so scared to make a fucking mistake in the end
But I just want to be happy again
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"
(Brother, would you 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
(But I'm sick, I'm sick, I'm sick)
So 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 always said, "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
Remember there's rain, and there's candy
And Christmasy winter snow (the snow, the snow)
And remember I love you the same
And I'll strange your pain"
And he tells me to sing, so I sing
And I sing for my brother who keeps me sane
And tells me, "Everything will be OK"

(Ya-di-da-di-da-ah-ah
Ya-di-da-di-da-ah-ah
Ya-di-da-di-da-ah-ah)
I'm alone
I'm never alone
No, I'm never alone
I'm not alone
(I'm not alone)
Ya-eh-ya-eh-ya-eh-ya
"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."
