I’ve seen them dying in the rain

A single stone is where they lay

I know you’re crying over him

Don’t keep secrets, let me in


I made a promise to this friend

Because he loved my next of kin

To be there to guide you through the night

You’re gonna need someone, to treat you right


Caught on the rebound, that’s what this is

And the memories of war turn you blind

I know what it means to lose someone you love

And your man was a good friend of mine


I’m your big brother, watching over you
