You said the world was magic i was wide-eyed and laughing we were dancing up to the bright side forget about your ego forget about your pride and you will never have to compromise but you were only joking we talked about our mothers kissed the wounds of our fathers i could've been your sister i would've been your brother you kissed me like i was a soldier heading for war i'm a dying man but i don't know what for but you were only joking you were only joking brother gravel and glass on the bottom of my feet i bruised my heels on the swollen street we were girls in bars we were boys on the town bumping like a pinball off a careless crowd you said good friends are hard to come by i laughed and bought you a beer 'cause it's too corny to cry well sentiment given and sentiment lost you shook it off with a smirk and a toss and you were only joking you were only joking brother
