BLOOD BROTHERS

Unofficial studio version 1


Alright, here we go
One, two, one two three four

Yeah once we were kids playing king of the mountain out on the end
The world come charging up the hill, and we were women and men
Now there's so much that time, time and memory fade away
We got our own roads to ride and chances we've got to take
We stood side by side each one fighting for the other
And we said until we die, we'd always be blood brothers

The impossibility of this world slowly grinds you away
Yeah, making a fool's joke out of the promises we make
What seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray
We lose ourselves in work to do, work to do and bills to pay
Yeah, it's a ride, ride, ride, well, and there ain't much cover
There's no one running by your side, my blood brother

And now my time is running out, and I'm fading to black
Well, I'm going some place, and I can't get back
Now I don't know how I feel, I don't know how I feel tonight
If I've fallen 'neath the wheel, if I've lost or I gained sight
I don't even know why, I don't know why I made this call
Or if any of this matters anymore at all

The stars are shining bright like some mystery uncovered
I'll keep moving through the dark with you in my heart, my blood brother

Whoa!
