Brother Down
Sam Roberts Lyrics


One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
(Yeah, it's nothing to me)

Everyone saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street
(Get your life on easy street)

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more

And the only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war

Rich man cryin' cause his money's time
And poor man's smilin' 'cause he knows he ain't blind
(Knows he ain't blind)

And there's a man over there, he says he's tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy
(I 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 then you're looking for something back
(Looking for something back)

You wake up every morning and there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more

Now the only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war

We got one life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down 'cause it's nothing to me
(It's nothing to me)

And there's a rich man cryin' 'cause his money is time
A poor man smilin' 'cause he knows he ain't blind
(He knows he ain't 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
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
You know we're doing it wrong
Yeah we're doing it wrong you see
I said we're doing it wrong you see
You know we're doing it wrong you see
Yeah, we're doing it wrong you see
I said, we're doing it wrong you see
You know we're doing it wrong
I said we're doing it wrong

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's crying cause his money's time
And poor man's 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 when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

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
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by
