BROTHERS (SHANE'S SONG)
(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
(COPYRIGHTED)

CHORUS :

We'll always be brother's in arms
A special bond like no one else
Forged in both love and harm

We're just brother's in arms
brother's in arms
brother's in arms.

Verse 1:

When we were young
To run and laugh
Would have been child's play
But when I was little
I just ran to hide
To survive another day
And you know why

Verse 2:

I didn't mean to leave you behind
A complex time for me
To break free of a Demon that binds
To know a life without fear
To come out from inside myself
I know I didn't say goodbye
But in time, I thought you'd know why...
You'd know why....

Verse 3:

And now you are a man

And I see you have done well
A husband and person of principle
Even better because you lived in hell
Words never said, our thoughts the same
And we both will always know why...
Always know why....

Verse 4:

And I just want you to know
I'm OK....still tend to survive...
Sometimes looking over a shoulder
But the child in me is very much alive
Playing with my own little boy
Having a late childhood, no one can deny
Of all people, you'd know why...
Of all people, you'd know why...
