lyrics

Like you were my brother,
you lend me your hand
If I was your brother, maybe I’d understand

We pass like we’re strangers,
you want something more
I know there’s no danger,
but can’t walk through that door

When we were young, we sang just like angels
Maybe someday we’ll sing together again

She runs when she sees you,
it’s not what you think
Can’t know how it hurts you,
she ain’t lived in your skin

When you were my lover,
you held out your hand
Your heart was somewhere other,
I never could understand
