Blue October – For My Brother lyrics

You're simply saying everything if you will
Take a pen and write my name on a friend
Who never cared to let me in
And take a vast revine that for
Three years swimmin' straight upstream
And the wind... The wind won't drag me down 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 wanna be happy again
Until it all falls down
And where does that leave me?
Well, things, things, I've got so many things to say
And with a broken heart, and a straight face
I'm sayin' 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
Yeah, and I'm in another place to be where I
I can't sleep without the thought of me being so
So damned sick

Take this song, take this song away
Until it all falls down
And where does that leave me?
Well, 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 strangle your pain
And he tells me to sing
So I sing, so I sing
For my brother who keeps me safe
And tells me everything will be ok.
