Unknown Brother

  • Though I never met you
    And we spoke not a word
    I'll never forget you through the stories that I've heard
    For you, unknown brother, my baby's mother's pain
    'Cause your soul is in heaven but your memory remains

    Unknown, unknown brother
    I'll meet you someday
    Unknown, unknown brother
    We'll walk through fields where children play

    Your eyes shined bright when you were a kid
    Your sisters loved you and all that you did
    Big brother, big brother, don't worry a bit
    Your flame has not faded since the day it was lit

    Your life was joy
    You're mama's only boy
    And when the skies are blue
    Big brother, they're blue for you

    We'll smile like pictures of you as a boy
    Before you retired to heavenly joy
    Unknown, unknown brother
    I'll meet you someday
    Unknown, unknown brother
    We'll walk through fields where children play Writer/s: Daniel Auerbach, Patrick Carney
