Lyrics
Sister's got her baby now and I'm glad for what she did
But her older one's in trouble, man I really love that kid
Maybe he could live here, for us it would be nice
He needs some time to grow up, needs a father in his life

Me I guess I'm lucky, mine have almost grown
It's amazing what they turn into from a seed that we have sown
I remember nights just lying there, worrying a while
I look across the room now, and I see them and I smile

All we ever want at night's our families to be safe
So we hold their hands and pick them up until they take their place
We know that there's no promises, no no guarantees
So we pray and pray and pray at night whatever will be will be

Oh look at it coming down, making a mess of this whole town
And I think that I know why

Everyone watched the wedding, two people in love
Two people whose blessing comes from higher up above
They're not like you and me, they were destined to be
Oh everyone watched the wedding, couldn't get enough
At least for one moment we were right there up above
Looking down on all the royal fuss Monday we were back upon the bus
Driving through the neighbourhoods and factories that are us
That one day, hope was all that we could see
And they looked so beautiful to me
Hope was all that we could see
And they looked so beautiful to me

Oh sister I am tapped out, this month is really bad
Can you hold on through May and then I'll give you what I have
Everything is going up, business going down
I've been through this so many times it always comes around

My brother he's a charmer, a snake with a silver tongue
Sometimes he up and disappears and we don't know where he's gone
My mother she's a fighter, always made her way
She can't believe she worries about us all to this day

Me I just keep going, guess that I'll be fine
But I can't believe I keep my head above the waterline
Some people round here want to get rich and run away
That's not for me no, I've got so many reasons to stay

Oh look at it coming down, making a mess of this d___ town
And I think that I know why

Everyone watched the wedding, two people in love
Two people whose blessing comes from higher up above
They're not like you and me, they were destined to be
Oh everyone watched the wedding, couldn't get enough
At least for one moment we were right there up above
Looking down on all the royal fuss Monday we were back upon the bus
Driving through the neighbourhoods and factories that are us
That knowing all our lives will never be
But they looked so beautiful to me
All our lives will never be
But they looked so beautiful to me
