Brother (The Madden Brothers)

One night while I was driving From the place I usually go I saw a pair of headlights And a car I didn’t know I pulled over, asked the driver “Hey man, where you going?” He said, “I don’t know, but I need to get there. You see, this truck is all but broken and my life is just the same. Had a wife who left me, and my kids don’t know my name. I’m not trying to make excuses, don’t wanna pass the blame, But I don’t know, how did I get here? He said; Say a prayer for me now, won’t you, brother? I’m so lost, say it loud, like my mother. I can’t speak, I’m too proud, like my father. Say a prayer for me now, won’t you, brother? So, we drove a little further to a place I’ve been before, Like cold water it hit me when he opened up the door, To a small house in the country, there were pictures on the wall Of places I remember and people I recall. He said, “Son, you’re nothing like me, And I’m so glad that you’re here”, then he cried and said, “I’m sorry,” and “I’ve missed you all these years,” And I don’t know, how did we get here? Before you go, could we just sit here, He said; Say a prayer for me now, won’t you, brother? I’m so lost, say it loud, like my mother. I can’t speak, I’m too proud, like my father. Say a prayer for me now, won’t you, brother?
