about

My brother Joshua lives far away in Australia and I miss him a lot. This song was floating around in my head for months before it came out as a celebration of our relationship, of the man I am proud to know him as and of how similar we are in so many ways (although we are SO different in so many ways too). I celebrate our shared bedroom of years ago, our mutual respect and the fact that he gets to see every sunrise a few hours before me. I’m lucky to have a brother like Joshie.

lyrics

Keep on brother it’s all I can say
You know the way, you know the way
Wit up brother, wait for us
I will walk beside you with our sister that’s enough

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie

Shine on brother where you are
Know that you light me up even when you shine from far
I hug every sunrise ‘cos I know
It’s you who warmed it up for me just a little while ago

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie

You were there when it was dark
Talking until dawn or sleep stole words
And stilled out muffled laughs
We kept it simple
Brother Joshie

Storytellers all we live with flair
it runs within our blood from the gypsies we descent
This pirate minstrel family
Yes we are all dreamers but every truth was once a dream
Yes we are all dreamers but every truth was once a dream
Yes we are all dreamers
Yes, we are all dreamers

Oh brother, brother look and see
So many similarities
Oh brother, brother you and me
We keep it simple
Brother Joshie
Brother Joshie
Brother Joshie
