This is a song I wrote.

 

Brother

Stumbling out, his feet sink into the snow

Tumbles over, he’s got plenty of time to grow

At four years old, he is golden and bright as the day

The morning’s young and he’s got hours to play

His world is small and the sea is shallow and safe

His daddy’s home, hear; he’s whistling down the lane

The day is done and the sun sets the sky on fire

Tonight, the minds of men are peaceful and kind

Oh, brother, you, you

Glory child

You, you

Rise up with a shout

You

Tear it all down

You

Concrete kings climb the trees when leaves turn brown

Spend all winter in the boughs and we’ll never come down

Till our mums call our names and we’ll run in for tea

Stay awake all night, until we fall asleep

We are brave with cider- steps

We are brave with two swinging fists

We are brave with street corner kisses

We are brave when our stone misses

Oh, brother, you, you

Glory child

You, you

Rise up with a shout

You

Tear it all down

You

The wood quickly buries what the sky gave it

The light returns to the earth so we will play in darkness

The wood quickly buries what the sky gave it

The light returns to the earth so we will play in darkness

We are brave in dreams of summer

Oh, brother, you, you

Glory child

You, you

Rise up with a shout

You

Tear it all down

You
