​Sister Beams

This song is by Slobberbone and appears on the album Slippage (2002).

Sister beams with girlish pride and a smile worn ear to ear
A lifetime's dream, a wedding scene, her precious day draws near
An empty home and a life alone, that's all she's ever feared
Yesterday her fiancé, he made his plans real clear

He said, "golden-haired, your sister's fair and she's been so good to me
But a lifetime bound and tied down, that's one I just can't see."
Then he said he must have lost his head when it struck him to agree
He said, "you're a man and you should understand a man has certain needs."

Now every day is just the same
And the hours move by so slow
Every day is like the day before, like every day but I know
It won't be like the one I leave behind me when I go

Sister, she don't talk too loud now that things are through
She's waiting on some old advice but it'll never come true
And she asks me if I'll stay with her but I've got some things to do
You see, now he's dead, he must have lost his head when I struck him
With what to do

Now every day is just the same
And the hours move by so slow
Every day is like the day before, like every day but I know
It won't be like the one I leave behind me when I go
