For the kin

Some mistakes were mine...some were yours. I didn't choose to be away...i thought you understood..but I guess it was me who didn't. I doubt you will ever read this...


Oh brother, tell me what have I done wrong
What is the cause of this coldness...
The reason behind this bitterness...
We were one, we were united...in blood and pain
In loss and gain...in the sun and the rain
You were my idol...my hero, I was your kin
Nothing would break us apart...we had promised

So where did i drift off as time passed?
Or was i still while everyone else floated away?
I didn't even know...until i called out your name
You weren't there, but everything still seemed the same
Did we walk too far down our own separate ways?
Or did we just grow too old to be children again?
I was there in your moment of sadness...you in mine
Separated by these roads...now we search for time
But I believed that we would forever remain the same
How childish of me...how naive...mundane.

Oh brother tell me now...what is my Achilles heel?
Oh brother tell me now...what is my sin?
Tell me now...will you ever forgive?
...or will you forever forget?
