With My Brother Standing By

burning tree

Well I had a dream I stood beneath an orange sky.
Yes, I had a dream I stood beneath an orange sky-
with my brother standing by, with my brother standing by.
I said brother, you know you know:

It’s a long road we’ve been walking on.

Yes it is, yes it is, you know, brother it is
Such a long road we’ve been walking on
Oh brother, oh brother

And I had a dream
I stood beneath an orange sky
With my sister standing by
With my sister standing by
I said, here is what I know now sister
Here is what I know now
Goes like this
In your love, my salvation lies

Oh, but you know I am so weary
And you know my heart
My hearts been broken now
Sometimes, sometimes
My mind is too strong to carry on
Too strong, too strong to carry on

When I am alone
When I’ve thrown off the weight of this crazy stone
When I’ve lost all care for the things I own
That’s when I miss you, that’s when I miss you
You who are my home
You who are my home now
And here is what I know now brother
Here is what I know now sister
Goes like this
In your love, my salvation lies

Your love now

Well I had a dream I
Stood beneath an orange sky
With my brother and my sister standing by.
