​Brother Lover

This song is by Colin Blunstone and appears on the album Journey (1974).

Brother lover
Blunstone

It was the shortest love affair that existed
I wouldn't have bothered if she hadn't insisted
But saying no's never been a strong line of mine
Beer to a lady or a bottle of wine.

So we danced for an hour and we drank for another
And she introduced me to her younger brother
And I looked on him as a brother of mine
But I wasn't quite sure how he looked on her.

I wish I'd gone straight home to bed
I'd be watching the late film instead
I was laughing, lying and dying here
And fearing that something be said.

Oh open the floor, I just can't take anymore
She told me he was her brother
Now I find out that he's her lover.

A lie in his eyes that I noticed before
When I looked in the mirror on my bedroom door
It wasn't the way that you looked at your sister
Just then I noticed, he'd started to kiss her.

Well I may have been slow to accept all that's said
Soon found myself turn from milk white to red
Now I would've done something but this you must see
Anyway you looked at him, looked six foot three.

I wish I'd gone straight home to bed
I'd be watching the late film instead
I was laughing, lying and dying here
And fearing that something be said.

Oh open the floor, I just can't take anymore
She told me he was her brother
Now I find out that he's her lover.

It was the shortest love affair that existed
I wouldn't have bothered if she hadn't insisted
But saying no's never been a strong line of mine
Beer to a lady or a bottle of wine
Beer to a lady or a bottle of wine
Beer to a lady or a bottle of wine.

(Brother lover, lover brother)
(Brother lover, lover brother).
