Sam Roberts — Brother Down lyrics

One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down 'cause it's nothing to me
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street
Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
Rich man crying 'cause his money is time
Poor man smiling 'cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy
I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by
Take It all back 'cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
Wake up every morning and there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care
Someone else telling you what your living for
Been knocking you down now your looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but their bringing you war
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man crying crying cause his money is time
Poor man smiling cause he knows he aint blind
I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
