Antony and the Johnsons - You Are My Sister


You are my sister, we were born
So innocent, so full of need
There were times we were friends but times I was so cruel
Each night I'd ask for you to watch me as I sleep
I was so afraid of the night
You seemed to move through the places that I feared
You lived inside my world so softly
Protected only by the kindness of your nature
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
We felt so differently then
So similar over the years
The way we laugh the way we experience pain
So many memories
But theres nothing left to gain from remembering
Faces and worlds that no one else will ever know
You are my sister
And I love you
May all of your dreams come true
I want this for you
They're gonna come true (gonna come true)

What beautiful lyrics. I could replace sister easily with my brother.

One of the sweetest songs I've heard, I think.

My Brother

As kids, we lived together, we fought together,we laughed, we cried. We did not always show the love we had inside.

We shared our dreams and plans, and some secrets too. All the memories we share, is what binds me now to you,

We grew to find we have a love, that is very strong today. It's a love shared by our family, that will never fade away.

You are my brother not by choice, but nature of our birth. I could not have chosen a better one, you are the best on earth.
