JIMMY BARNES lyrics - Flesh And Wood

Brother Of Mine

Original and similar lyrics
He said that he’s tired of talkin’ about it ‘Cause nobody ever heard a word he’d say None of us took him serious, gave him the time of day Invisible, ‘till he ran away Blood is thicker than water, our father always said But that don’t mean a damn thing When I look at your empty bed So run back, run back to me Run back, run back to me, brother of mine I was the one who got the attention Always the favourite son of the family Made you feel left out, made you feel like a stranger It took some growing up for me to see That blood is thicker than water We should stick together right or wrong I bet you think these empty words are not worth The paper they’re written on So run back, run back to me Run back, run back to me, brother of mine I’ve been looking for you everywhere Your leaving showed me just how much I care I can’t blame you for running away But just come back some day Blood is thicker than water, our father always said But that don’t mean a damn thing When I look at your empty bed So run back, run back to me Come back to family Run back, run back to me, cause I love you Brother of mine

Highway Patrolman

JOHNNY CASH "Johnny 99"
My name is Joe Roberts, I work for the state I'm a sergeant out on Perenville barracks number 8 I've always done an honest job, honest as I could Got a brother named Frankie, Frankie ain't no good Ever since we were young kids, it's been the same come down I'd get a call on the short wave, Frankie's in trouble downtown Well, if it was any other man, I'd put him straight away But sometimes when it's your brother, you look the other way Yeah, me and Frankie laughin' and drinkin', nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria while the band played "The Night of the Johnstown Flood" I catch him when he's strayin', like any brother should Man turns his back on his family, he ain't no good Well, Frankie went into the army back in 1965 I got a farm deferment, settled down, took Maria for my wife But them wheat prices kept on droppin', 'til it was like we's gettin' robbed Frankie came home in '68, and me, I took this job Yeah, me and Frankie laughin' and drinkin', nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria while the band played "The Night of the Johnstown Flood" I catch him when he's strayin', teach him how to walk that line Man turns his back on his family ain't no friend of mine The night was like any other, I got a call 'bout a quarter to nine There was trouble at a roadhouse out on the Michigan line There was a kid on the floor, lookin' bad, bleedin' hard from his head There was a girl cryin' at a table, it was Frankie, she said I ran out and I jumped in my car, then I hit the lights I must have done about a hundred and ten to Michigan County that night It was down by the crossroads, out by willow bank Seen the Buick with Ohio plates, behind the wheel was Frank Well, I chased him through them county roads, 'til the sign said Canadian border five miles from here Pulled over to the side out the highway, watched the taillights disappear Yeah, me and Frankie laughin' and drinkin', nothin' feels better than blood on blood Takin' turns dancin' with Maria while the band played "The Night of the Johnstown Flood" I catch him when he's strayin', like any brother should Man turns his back on his family, he ain't no good

Flood

TOOL "Undertow"
Here comes the water. All I knew and all I believed are crumbling images that no longer comfort me. I scramble to reach higher ground, some order and sanity, or something to comfort me. So I take what is mine,and hold what is mine, suffocate what is mine, and bury what's mine. Soon the water will come and claim what is mine. I must leave it behind, and climb to a new place now. This ground is not the rock I thought it to be. Thought I was high, and free. I thought I was there divine destiny. I was wrong. This changes everything. The water is rising up on me. Thought the sun would come deliver me, but the truth has come to punish me instead. The ground is breaking down right under me. Cleanse and purge me in the water.

Somebody

David Byrne "Uh-Oh"
Somebody, somebody's gettin' outa bed Somebody, somebody's gettin' herself dressed Somebody, somebody combin' back her hair Somebody, somebody dancin' down the stairs And on the TV and in magazines She sees the people she would like to be Somebody, somebody steals away her dreams Somebody, somebody - race is all they see Somebody, somebody takes away her pride Somebody, somebody don't know wrong from right Now they have taken everything she owns How did she ever get this far from home? See how we are There ain't no four-leaf clover In the blink of an eye Ev'rything changes We gotta start all over Down in that deep muddy river (so long ago) Blood is much thicker than water (the angels know) Love is the ocean we swim in (so long ago) Carry us to our beginning (the angels know) Somebody, somebody takes away our name Somebody, somebody tell me who I am Somebody, somebody testify for love Somebody, somebody where are you tonight? Down in that deep muddy river (so long ago) Blood is much thicker than water (the angels know) She hears a voice sweetly singing (so long ago) Carry us to our beginning (the angels know)

Brother, My Cup Is Empty

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds "Henry's Dream"
Brother, my cup is empty And I haven't got a penny For to buy no more whiskey I have to go home I am the captain of my pain Tis the bit, the bridle, The trashing cane The stirrup, the harness The whipping mane The pickled eye The shrinking brain O brother, buy me one more drink I'll explain the nature of my pain Yes, let me tell you once again I am the captain of my pain O brother, my cup is empty And I haven't got a penny For to buy no more whiskey I have to go home I cannot blame it all on her To blame her all would be a lie For many a night I lay awake And wished that I could watch her die To see her accusing finger spurt To see flies swarm her hateful eye To watch her groaning in the dirt To see her clicking tongue crack dry O brother, buy me one more drink One more drink and then goodbye And do not mock me when I say Let's drink one more before I die O brother, my cup is empty And I haven't got a penny For to buy no more whiskey I have to go home Well I've been sliding down on rainbows Well I've been swinging from the stars Now this wretch in beggars clothing Bangs his cup across the bars Look, this cup of mine is empty! Seems I've misplaced my desires Seems I'm sweeping up the ashes Of all my former fires So brother, be a brother And fill this tiny cup of mine And please, sir, make it whiskey For I have no head for wine O brother, my cup is empty And I haven't got a penny For to buy no more whiskey I have to go home I counted up my blessings And counted only one One tiny little blessing And now that blessings gone So buy me one more drink, my brother Then I'm taking to the road Yes, I'm taking to the rain I'm taking to the snow O my friend, my only brother Do not let the party grieve So throw a dollar onto the bar Now kiss my ass and leave O brother, my cup is empty And I haven't got a penny For to buy no more whiskey I have to go home

That's Where I Belong

ALAN JACKSON "Freight Train"
When the frantic pace of life attacks me And weighs me to the ground I long for someplace to escape To the one place i have found No stoplights to obey No signs or limits there Just drop the hook And make your home almost anywhere Where the sky meets the water Where the wind is my song Where the sun is my brother That's where I belong The gentle motion of the seas Just rocks me off to sleep No sirens, cars or screams just quiet ocean breeze A frigate bird encircles me A 1000 feet above She dips her wing and bows her head Like we share a common love Where the sky meets the water Where the wind is my song Where the sun is my brother That's where I belong When the moonlight cracks the edge of night And stars are everywhere I can taste the rum and coke And I can smell that salty air A light spray across my bow Cools the evening sun As it slowly melts into the sea And tells me day is done Where the sky meets the water Where the wind is my song Where the sun is my brother That's where I belong When the common themes of life They come and overload my brain I steer my thoughts right to that place That takes me far away When the traffic fills that concrete path That takes me back and forth I usually sit and dream about That biggest piece of earth Where the sky meets the water Where the wind is my song Where the sun is my brother That's where I belong Where the sky meets the water Where the wind is my song Where the sun is my brother That's where I belong Yeah, that's where I belong Oh, that's where I belong
