lyrics

You were born after
Our sister was born.
The room filled with laughter
Twenty minutes before.

Anxious, Excited.
The room filled up fast.
Doctors and nurses and
Your older sister in your father's grasp

Your mother, she waited,
Biting the pain.
"Living is easy," she said.
"Giving it is strange."

Your mother sat in a wheelchair.
Your father he smiled.
Life's so wonderful
Every once in a while.

Your mother held you and your sister,
One in each arm.
Your father leant and he kissed her.
He couldn't do much harm
At the moment.

You lived in the empty forest
So they could hone all your skills.
Your parents both lawyers with a
Nice house on the hill.

You went to a school that was
Carved in the mounting
Clouds came through windows,
Requiems and hymnals

And all I could see was
A clear mist.

Your mother, she'd pick you up
Your father, he worked.
It couldn't hurt to be
A little bit more wealthy.

You grew a bit older.
Your body, it formed,
But your mind is still the same
Just looking to impress.
Who to impress?

Your father's busy and your sisters got a life of her own
Either way
Nobody's every home to impress.
Your father he said to your mother:

"Lover of old, wipe my hair
my skin it is pale, naked and bare.
Lover of old, you better wipe my cheek
my tears they will stumble, naked and weak."
Questions and answers,
Unwanted prophecies,
Unwanted pregnancies.

The future is clear to me.
Is it to you?
You must go a separate way from her
Or you're doomed to be two.

Your mother said, "Life was easy.
Do what you can to be happy
Do what you must to be happy
Do what you must."
