​Brother

This song is by The Madden Brothers and appears on the album Greetings From California (2014).

One night while I was driving
From the place I usually go
I saw a pair of headlights
And a car I didn't know
I pulled over, asked the driver
"Hey man, where you going?"
He said, "I don't know, but I need to get there.
You see, this truck is all but broken and my life is just the same.
Had a wife who left me, and my kids don't know my name.
I'm not trying to make excuses, don't wanna pass the blame,
But I don't know, how did I get here?
He said;

Say a prayer for me now, won't you, brother?
I'm so lost, say it loud, like my mother.
I can't speak, I'm too proud, like my father.
Say a prayer for me now, won't you, brother?

So, we drove a little further to a place I've been before,
Like cold water it hit me when he opened up the door,
To a small house in the country, there were pictures on the wall
Of places I remember and people I recall.
He said, "Son, you're nothing like me,
And I'm so glad that you're here", then he cried and said,
"I'm sorry," and "I've missed you all these years,"
And I don't know, how did we get here?
Before you go, could we just sit here,
He said;

Say a prayer for me now, won't you, brother?
I'm so lost, say it loud, like my mother.
I can't speak, I'm too proud, like my father.
Say a prayer for me now, won't you, brother?
