about

A song about losing someone as close to you as a brother. We've all been there. A family member passing away, a bad fight with your best friend, or simply losing touch with someone important in your life, and wishing you could spend one more day with them, passing the time away like it used to be.

lyrics

Only 20-something and I'm sold.
That I'm terrified of getting old.
Can't wait to see where we'll be,
Is what we said, but now we don't speak.
All along I thought that we'd stay strong,
But I'm alone and everything is wrong.

I drag a heavy heart you know.
It beats for reasons I do not know.
So I'll plant the seed that you left for me
and it will grow until there's nothing left of me.
'Cause everything that dies must first grow old.
The body withers but the story is told.
Your laughter filled the Earth with love and life.
I really hope that I was a part of the reason why.

I don't wanna miss you for too long
but I'm scared that if I don't you'll come along
looking for me waiting for you still
but find an empty house upon the hill.
If I ever close my eyes to sleep,
at least we still are brothers in my dream
Winter numbs my hands but not the pain.
Seasons change but silence still remains.
So please, brother, come home.
brother come home (X4)

I don't wanna miss you for too long
but I'm scared that if I don't you'll come along
looking for me waiting for you still
but find an empty house upon the hill.
If I ever close my eyes to sleep,
at least we still are brothers in my dream
Winter numbs my hands but not the pain.
Seasons change but silence still remains.
So please, oh brother, come home.

Oh brother, come home... (X4)
