Lyrics

Brothers

Written By: Jesse Sheehan

You could be my brother
Who I come to when I’m wrong
You could bring the water
That I drink when I’m not strong
So come on you brothers
You demons, you others
You children who hide from the dark
You could be my brother
And I’ll love you like you are

You could be my sister
And I’d help you find yourself
You could be the doctor
Who nurses me to health
So come on you sisters
You doctors, you others
You children who hide from the dark
You could be my brother
And I’ll love you like you are
So darling can you

Come with me forever
Darling can we run
Until our legs cave in
And darling you
You

You could be my daughter
Who I’d hold and keep so warm
You could be my lover
Who I seek when I feel so alone

So come on
You brothers you sisters you doctors you lovers
You demons, you others
You children who are sheltered from the dark
You could be my brothers
And I’ll love you like you are
