Dream Brother - Jeff Buckley
(J. Buckley/M. Grondahl/M. Johnson)
There is a child sleeping near his twin
The pictures run wild in a rush of wind
That dark angel he is shuffling in
Watching over them with his black velvet wings unfurled
The love you lost with her skin so fair
Is free with the wind in her b_tterscotch hair
Her green eyes blew goodbyes
With her head in her hands
and your kiss on the lips another
Dream Brother with your tears scattered round the world.
Don't be like the one who made me so old
Don't be like the one who left behind his name
'Cause they're waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came...
I feel afraid and I call your name
I love your voice and your dance insane
I hear your words and I know your pain
Your head in your hands and her kiss on the lips of another
Your eyes to the ground
and the world spinning round forever
Asleep in the sand with the ocean washing over...
