about

A song I wrote for my brother - he's always been there for me whenever I've been in trouble and I figured it was about time I told him how grateful I was.

lyrics

From broken homes to broken bones
I've come so far and yet I've never been alone
cos, just when things became too much
Just like magic you'd appear
It's never easy being me
Sometimes I'm blinded, and it's difficult to see
But even when I'm not myself
You strip away my thin disguise
And it's so good to know youre always on my side

And so I thank you, for all you've done for me
I know it's been a rough ride but I'm glad that in the end
I can count you as a friend

I never fail to be amazed
That what defeats me leaves you totally unfazed
It's almost like I'm lacking in
The thing that makes you so alive
And it's so good to know you're always on my side

And so I thank you, for all you've done for me
I swear I wouldn't be here if you hadn't been around
Just a thank you, it doesn't seem enough
I know it's been a rough ride but I'm glad that in the end
I can count you as a friend

I pretend I don't need anyone
But then you knew that anyway

So maybe one day when I'm gone
I like to think that you could listen to this song
And feel assured you did your best
And that in a thousand ways
You eased the passing of my each and every day

And so I thank you, for all you've done for me
I swear I wouldn't be here if you hadn't been around
Just a thank you, I've not said it enough
When you pull me from the wreckage of my folly now and then
That's why I count you as a friend
That's why I count you as a friend
