PRAYER FOR MY BROTHER

 

He used to wear a small toy fireman’s hat

An old red raincoat that was torn

And then he’d rescue me out of the fire

As he would save the day once more

 

Some other times, he’d wear a plastic badge

Pull me over in the driveway

Cuz I was speeding on my tricycle

He’d say I’ve got to mind my way

 

Now, 20 years past

Brother he wears a completely new outfit

But can our family stand

Just one more day

 

So when you close your eyes at night

Please say a prayer for my brother

And Ask God to keep him well

As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

 

He left our home and went away

Cuz someone needs him more than I do

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me

 

And now a candle burns in St. Joan’s Church

Our family’s hopes within it blown

We pray the angels take this light to him

So he can find his way back home

 

Momma prays every day

Little Bro Billy gets quiet for hours

Even Dad whispers words

When he’s alone

 

So when you close your eyes at night

Please say a prayer for my brother

And Ask God to keep him well

As he keeps us safe, you’ll see

 

He left our home and went away

Cuz someone needs him more than I do

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me

 

I pray so hard just to believe

Cuz I still need my hero please

Just bring my brother back to me
