For My Brother

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

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

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