For My Brother

This song is by Blue October and appears on the album The Answers (1998).

It would simply say everything if you would
Take a pen and write my name on a friend
Who never cared to let me in.

Then take a fast ravine that for
Three years swimming straight upstream and the wind,
The wind will drag me down in 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'm,
I'm so scared to make another mistake in the end
But I just want to be happy again.

Until it all falls down,
And where does that leave me?
With things, things, I've got so many things to say
And with a broken heart and a straight face
I'm saying, "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.
(I'm fixed, I'm fixed, I'm fixed..)
And I'm in another place to be where I,
I can't sleep without the thought of me
being so, so damn sick.
(I'm sick, I'm sick, I'm sick)

But take this song, take this song away
Until it all falls down,
And where does that leave me?
With 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, and I sing,
And I sing for my brother who keeps me sane
And tells me everything will be okay.

I'm so alone
God, I'm so alone
I'm so alone
I'm alone
