Christians Brother

from by Rob Halligan

lyrics

He was only five years younger
Different father but the same mother
Always knew him as my brother
We shared our hopes and shared our fears
The laughter and the flowing tears
As we travelled through our younger years
Like brothers do we’d sometimes break up
But I knew we’d always make up

And I am and I will always be Christians Brother

Everyday after school
We would always play football
Up against that old stone wall
Imagining ourselves out there
We would hear the people roar
With every single goal we scored
We had our dreams that we would reach for
Never thought that it would end

And I am and I will always be Christians Brother
And I am and I will always be Christians Brother

Seems the innocence of youth
Is vulnerable to times abuse
When details complicate the truth
And somewhere there along the road
We had our different ways to go
And drifted like we never should
Though you went you way, I went mine
I never will forget the time

And I am and I will always be Christians Brother

I remember when your father died
How you were torn apart inside
I could reach you though I tried
And when the day I face the same
I wanted you there with me
But somewhere you’d forgotton
You went your way and I went mine
I never will forget
That we had our dreams that we would reach for
I never thought it would end
Like brothers do we’d sometime break up
I knew we’d always make
I know we’re gonna make up

And I am and I will always be Christians Brother
And I am and I will always be Christians Brother
