I didn’t want any help I from him, I just wanted to take control

Now I know I failed to see that he gave me what I needed to grow

And oh how I tried to fight it, I know but I can't stop

I gave up too many times trying to tell I’m proud of him I know

 

So this is one's for him

Cause it was all for me

This ones for him cause I finally see

It was all for me

 

It’s like looking in a mirror, we're both stubborn and unruly to our souls

We’re laughing then we’re yelling, never still and always rolling like two stones

Oh we try to fight it, we always regret it, every time

If I could take back any moments when I hurt him bad I would, you know

 

So this is one's for him

Cause it was all for me

This ones for him and I finally see

It was all for me

 

They always tried to warn me “you’ve got him in you” and I’d think thank God

When I try to tell you that I love you I can’t find the words

 

So this is one's for you

Cause it was all for me

This ones for you cause I finally see

It was all for me

And all of life, you told me

That I could be anything I wanted to be

So this ones for you

Cause it was all for me

1 For Him

Given up, given in

Given all of me over the times

Little bit, every inch

The walls  are closing in

I lost my mind

I know you know me better than I do

This sick lonely world feels better with you

So give it time

We’ll all be fine

Am I lying, lying, lying to myself?

To give it time

We’ll all be fine

Yeah I’m lying, lying, lying,

But I don’t care, I have to

Hold my own hand

Tired days  all the same,

I start to feel symptoms I can’t fight

Copious loneliness I can only hold you

With my sight

Sick and wired milk expired 

Turn off the news so we can

Dream about a day

Waking up knowing I get to hold you

From less than six feet away

I know you know me better than I do

This sick lonely world feels better with you

 

So give it time, we’ll all be fine

Am I lying, lying, lying to myself?

To give it time, we’ll all be fine

Yeah I’m lying, lying, lying,

But I don’t care, I have to

Hold my own hand

2 Hold My Own Hand

Shoulda been a dead man but he watched the sunrise

A mother always knows and a father can try

To save a lost soul my brother you’ll be fine

It’s been a hard year but I’m home for good this time

And I hope that you’ll hear me when I say that our blood river runs the same way

Rough waters but just keep on swimming the youngest daughter is always listening 

Brother of mine

Take your time to grow up 

I know right now feels like you’re never enough

But let the fools whisper, I can promise you this

Life ain’t worth missing, love your little sis  

 

I’ll admit that I've been more than a phone call away

The distance made it’s easy to hide any pain

Only small hints as the voice quivers and shakes

It’s been a hard year but I’m home for good to stay

And I hope that you’ll hear me when I say that our blood river runs the same way

Rough waters but just keep on swimming the youngest daughter is always listening 

Brother of mine

Take your time to grow up 

I know right now feels like you’re never enough

But let the fools whisper, I can promise you this

Life ain’t worth missing, love your little sis  
 

I’ve been called home

I can’t straighten the bend of your river

I don’t want to cause I love the way you roam 

I’ve-been called home

I can’t swim you back to the shore, brother

Cause I’m in here sinking in the same boat

It’s amazing the steady flow of a stream

Even when thinned, that blood sure runs deep

Rough waters but just keep on swimming the youngest daughter is always listening 

Brother of mine

Take your time to grow up 

I know right now feels like you’re never enough

But let the fools whisper, I can promise you this

Life ain’t worth missing, love your little sis  

5 Brother of Mine

4 Little Back House

I couldn't find a bigger Jacket if I tried and I did. Bundled head to floor I adore how he makes fun of it

Will I ever be warm again? The reverse of summer you forget the life you once lived

Being away from home the season's stolen. Somewhere along the way my spirit was broken

But he keeps me

Traditions some stay and some go so we made our own

Picked up some sticks  from the yard for a cross and wrapped them in gold

Will I ever be warm again reaches in my pocket to hold my hand in his

Being away from home the season's stolen. Somewhere along the way my spirit was broken

But he keeps me

Warm

In that little back house. Plenty of love to go around

No firewood or place to burn so we'll cuddle up now

No mistletoe but don't we know we don't need it anyhow

I am home now

Do you want to keep me warm forever?

Do you? Cause you do.

Keep me

Warm

In that little back house. Plenty of love to go around

No firewood or place to burn so we'll cuddle up now

No mistletoe but don't we know we don't need it anyhow

I am home now in that little back house

On these days I imagine my mind having dark core rotten from the inside

Staring at a coffee table that I’ve cleaned twice

Just trying to pass the time by removing my stains

Is there any glory staying down here to hope for it? I don’t think there is

You’re the only reason I stay down here to consider it, so consider this a compliment

 

I need rest

When I’m gone

I think that’s when I’ll be the happiest

With the stars or the angels

Or whoever is waiting upstairs 

 

Crave attention but refuse it at the same time

I want to be remembered for this past life

Never felt settled down here in my mind

I felt there was more to find and I’ve come to terms with that so

Is there any glory staying down here to hope for it? I don’t think there is

You’re the only reason I stay down here to consider it, so consider this a compliment

 

I need rest

When I’m gone

I think that’s when I’ll be the happiest

With the stars or the angels

Or whoever is waiting upstairs 

I need rest

When I’m gone

I think that’s when I’ll be the happiest

With the stars or the angels

Or whoever is waiting upstairs 

6 Upstairs

I’ve been so patient

I know you have too

Seems like every time

I turn around I’m stuck motionless

And let down by my anchor

Feels like every time I take off 

In the right direction

ocean rises up

I’m a bad sailor

Lick my finger

How does it taste?

Being able to breathe

In that salty air on that open sea 

How does it feel?

Knowing you’re going somewhere

Far away that you can’t even see. 

How long would you wait?

Just floating and hopeless no birds and bees

Somebody please send me a breeze

I’ve been day dreaming 

I hope you have too

I'll just keep my eyes on the horizon 

I won’t bother looking out

On open water for a corner

Feels like I’m hanging on

For dear life at the helm

But the drop the “m” and add an “l”

I’m a bad sailor

Lick my finger

 

How does it taste?

Being able to breathe

In that salty air on that open sea 

How does it feel?

Knowing you’re going somewhere

Far away that you can’t even see. 

How long would you wait?

Just floating and hopeless no birds and bees

Somebody please send me a breeze

Send me a breeze

Send me a breeze

How does it taste?

Being able to breathe

In that salty air on that open sea 

How does it feel?

Knowing you’re going somewhere

Far away that you can’t even see. 

How long would you wait?

Just floating and hopeless no birds and bees

Somebody please send me a breeze
