Alan G. — Letters lyrics

BILLY:
Dear Tom, It’s your Little Bro Billy
Just wrote to say I miss you so
And Tom, it’s just a little bit silly
But I’ve run away, run far from home

The whole world just bullies me
I got hate up to my knees
And it seems my dream is startin’ to fade
Please write to your Little Bro Billy
I’m here all alone – and I’m afraid

TOM:
Dear Billy, It’s your Big Bro Thomas
Hello from halfway ‘cross the earth
Like you, I’m keepin’ our promise
To stand up for ways that all have worth

And I know it don’t seem fair BILLY: Not sure why I did this
That your brother just ain’t there BILLY: I’m still just a kid
But I understand you’re tryin’ to be true
Listen up, my Little Bro Billy
There’re some things we all just gotta do

BILLY/TOM: There’s one that you find
BILLY: Knows what to say when the world has kicked you down
BILLY/TOM: There’s one you leave behind
TOM: That you always worry ‘bout a ton
BILLY/TOM: My brother’s always been that one

BILLY: Dear Tom, we’re livin’ in fear now
TOM: These folks don’t feel safe here
BILLY: I‘m hit all the time though I still pray
TOM: There ain’t any hope here
BILLY: And life – is just pain and tears now
TOM: The people here hurt too
BILLY: I cry all the time cuz you’re away
TOM: They cry for their sons, the ones about your age
BILLY: Classmates’ words cut like a knife
TOM: Boys here hope to have a life
BILLY: All their hate makes me so mad
TOM: Don’t you see…
We got much more to do, my Little Bro Billy
Now get along home and wait for me

BILLY/TOM: There’s one that you know
TOM: That you try to change the whole world for
BILLY/TOM: There’s one who will show
BILLY: The way back home when life has made you run
BILLY/TOM: My brother’s always been that one

BILLY:
Dear Tom, It’s your Little Bro Billy
Just wrote to say thanks, I’m heading home
