Oh Brother

And he will fly to lands afar
and side with the city
till she
in time
says stay by my side.

And we will fly to lands afar
just to see you two marry.
Brave smiles,
you are
explorers indeed.

Oh brother, don’t you change and even more don’t stay the same.

And you will fly to lands afar
and side with the mountains
so those
you love
can run far from view.

For we are tied to lands afar,
and fathers with boats
must row to where we are.
The landscape turns blue.

Oh brother, don’t you change and even more don’t stay the same.
