Brother to Brother

from by Ro Halfhide



A song about adoption


Like brother to brother,
There truly is no other
Even though we don't share a mother,
Even though we don't share a father
Our parents are the same
Are love knows no shame
So if there's anybody trying to sell us a lie
Well let's just get back to the old days and sing 'No reply'

Hey brother,
This morning I had a dream
We were one again
Back together in our stream
I was holding you so tight
Had to set our hearts alight
I regret the day I betrayed you and said goodbye
So let's just get back together and sing 'No reply'

Our daddy was trying to give it a different try
He was getting tired of letting his dream die
You know who talked him out of it
Aunty told him how hard you could get hit
So if you ever stray from your own reasons why
Well I'll come on over and I won't leave until we sing 'No reply'

It's been a long time
Since we truly talked
It's been a long lonely road that we both walked
If we set fire to our love
I know that the angels above
Will join in on the choir with a mighty cry
When we set up our tent and start singing 'No reply'
