  • I do relate to you in so many ways
    But I didn't go through what you must have in those early days
    You had to be strong at such a very young age
    A new life from lemonade

    So won't you listen to me now
    There's something I never told you
    And I'm about to try
    See you were my lifeline when the world was exploding

    You moved back in with us in the fall of '82
    I fell into dark times and you were there to help me through
    You told me that a downturn would eventually improve
    And you were right, so I'm thanking you

    So won't you listen to me now
    There's something I never told you
    And I'm about to try
    See you were my lifeline when the world was exploding
    Footholds eroding

    Had you never been my friend
    I wouldn't be quite what you see
    I wouldn't be the man I am

    Sister you've known me (Sister you've known me)
    Lost in a strange world (Sister you've known me)
    What has it shown me (Sister you've known me)
    What has it gone through (Sister you've known me)
    Sister you've known me (Sister you've known me)
    Been lost in a strange world (Sister you've known me)
    But has it shown me (Sister you've known me)
    What has it gone through (Sister you've known me)

    October chill in that old dusty town
    Halloween came, I was still feeling down
    Mama, lost my sweet tooth, what's the point in going 'round?
    Your boy is losing count
    Maybe try the lost and found Writer/s: JAMES MERCER
