lyrics

OLDER BROS. NEVER LISTEN

verse: G riff
chorus: D B7 C G
bridge: (C G) x2 C Cm B7 A7 Am

hey brother mine we've got sad smiles in these old pics
i'm sure we're fine we just need girls to check our wrists

[chorus]
i'm telling you time is slipping away

oh brother mine you pulled up stakes & put them back
spent your last time paying off your heart attack
i'm growing up & making waves & looking smug
you're showing up & your grave is freshly dug

[ch]

[bridge]
dear brother you've got to hold on
i miss you most when you are gone
i need your love so darling listen when i say...

[ch]

hey brother mine we got so grey so damn fast
back in grade nine we didn't bear this heavy past
oh brother mine we're running tied for second last...

[ch] x2
