  • Brother, brother
    Sister, sister

    It's the loneliness that's the killer

    So you want
    To be free
    To live your life,
    The way you want to be
    Will you give,
    If we cry?
    Will we live,
    Or will we, die?
    Oh

    Jaded hearts heal with time
    Shoot that love (oh whoa whoa whoa)
    So we can
    Stop the bleeding, oh

    Solitary brother (brother)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

    Solitary sister (sister)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

    Solitary brother (brother)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

    Solitary sister (sister)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

    If we try
    Live our lives
    The way we wanna be yeah

    Oh, love love
    Oh, love love
    Oh, love love

    Brother, brother
    Sister, sister
    Brother, brother, brother, brother, brother

    There's no other love, there's no other love, there's no other love
    There is no other love, no other love like ours
    There's no other love, there's no other love, there's no other love
    There is no other love, no other love like ours
    There's no other love, there's no other love, there's no other love
    There's no other love, there's no other love, there's no other love
    There is no love

    Solitary brother (brother)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to live?

    Solitary sister (sister)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

    Solitary brother (brother)
    Solitary sister (sister)
    Is there still a part of you that wants to give?

    Racism in among future kings can only lead to no good
    Besides, all our sons and daughters already know how that feels
    Yeah yeah yeah

Adamski's only other big hit was club anthem "NRG", which actually preceded "Killer" and peaked at UK No.12 in March 1990 - a week later, "Killer" entered the UK Top 40, and less than a month after that it was Number 1. No-one knows what happened to Adamski after that, but Seal'r recording career has continued until the present day, though he's struggled in the last decade to equal those releases from the first half of the 1990s.
