Blues Traveler – Brother John lyrics

Are you sleeping Brother John?
If you feel like weeping Brother John
Please won't you hear me Brother John?
Just wait and see Brother John

Can't you see by the will of your hand, you can give it a try and just name your price?
And everybody in this rock and roll band, don't wanna preach, don't wanna give advice
But the music's playing and all we're saying is to come along and jam
And it's hard to be believed what can be achieved with an outstretched hand
Are you sleeping Brother John?
If you feel like weeping Brother John
Please won't you hear me Brother John?
Just wait and see Brother John

Are you sleeping Brother John?
If you feel like weeping Brother John
Please won't you hear me Brother John?
Just wait and see Brother John

The things that hurt just won't go away but neither will we
Doesn't really matter either way 'cause you're all you need to set yourself free
It may sound hard but it's just a start to ride that wind
And you ain't Peter Pan you're just a man, you'll get there again

Are you sleeping (Are you sleeping) Brother John? (Brother John)
If you feel like weeping (Call on me babe) Brother John (Brother John)
Please won't you hear me (Won't you hear me?) Brother John? (Brother John)
Just wait and see (Wait and see) Brother John
I said, "Are you sleeping Brother John?
If you feel like weeping Brother John
Please won't you hear me Brother John?
Just wait and see Brother John"
I said, "Wait and see (Wait and see)
Just wait and see (Wait and see)
Just wait and see (I said, "Wait and see?)
Just wait and see (Wait and see)
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you rise and shine?
Won't you wait and see? "
