Unknown Brother
The Black Keys Lyrics


Though I never met you
And we spoke not a word
I'll never forget you through the stories that I've heard
For you, unknown brother, my baby's mother's pain
'Cause your soul is in heaven but your memory remains

Unknown, unknown brother
I'll meet you someday
Unknown, unknown brother
We'll walk through fields where children play

Your eyes shined bright when you were a kid
Your sisters loved you and all that you did
Big brother, big brother, don't worry a bit
Your flame has not faded since the day it was lit

Your life was joy
You're mama's only boy
And when the skies are blue
Big brother, they're blue for you

We'll smile like pictures of you as a boy
Before you retired to heavenly joy
Unknown, unknown brother
I'll meet you someday
Unknown, unknown brother
We'll walk through fields where children play

My mom had a child when I was 6 years old, it was a boy, due to the financial struggle at the moment she had to give him away for adoption, although I was very young I loved that kid very much and since the day he left I always knew that some day I would find my brother no matter how long it would take. tree months ago I met my little brother after 18 years since that day. I must have listened to this song 500+ times and will continue to do so as it represents history for me and life long experience.

I have an unknown sister, this song makes me feel less alone. Thank you Black Keys.

So do I. None would explain that feeling, unless this song. A hug from Argentina.

Lost my brother almost 6 years ago. Hadn’t had a really big wave of wanting to break down or anything for a long time, but I was listening to the album and jamming out then this song came on and it’s been on rest for an hour. Love you guys, thanks for reminding me of him in a good way.
