  • Lyrics
  • Joe Goddard (vocals, synthesizer and percussion) told The NME February 6, 2010 about this heartfelt ballad of brotherly love: "We went on tour with Matthew Dear a couple of years ago. He wanted to write a song about the brotherhood of being bands on the road. I thought it was a good idea, so I started writing it, but it turned out to be more of a song about my brother. I'd like it to be played in gay clubs, because women have more songs of that nature, such as 'We Are Family' by Sister Sledge, so I felt like men needed one."
