lyrics

Turn, you’re on your own again
Turn towards the friends
You haven’t seen in years

An ache is safer than a tear
Pretending you don’t care
Is keeping to your fears

Give up believing you’re all alone
Need something other than what you own
Turn to your brother, turn to your brother
Work to recover his flesh and bone
He’s not so far away, not so far away as you’ve been told

Bury promises down deep
Repeat them in your sleep
The way it’s gotta be

You know you can’t believe those lies
Unless you hide your eyes
Be careful what you see

So you’re staying in tonight
You’re turning out the lights
Alone inside your head

When you look inside yourself
Apart from everybody else
Is there emptiness instead?
You’ve got to…

Give up believing you’re all alone
Need something other than what you own
Turn to your brother, turn to your brother
Work to recover his flesh and bone
He’s not so far away, not so far away as you’ve been told
