I wrote this song for my brother, who lives far away in Australia. Playing it always makes me think of how awesome he is, and also of all the people who I love and miss spread out all over the world.

People are all so similar in so many ways, I hope we can learn to focus more on that than on our differences, you know?


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

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

Shine on brother where you are
Kow that you still light me up
Even when you shine from far
I hug each sunrise cos I know
You made it warm for me
A little while ago

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

And you know I’m always there
Cos I ain’t goin’ anywhere
You and I are not afraid
We keep it simple
Keep it simple
Little Brother
