Lyrics:

(chorus one)

Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get

(verse one)

Brother, its been a while since we spoke / wrote a verse together had a meal caught a joke / broke, but we had the capacity to cope / more than ten years before the audacity of hope / on the oakwood steps together talking justice / thought we could never get old we were just kids / but growing up took us on a different path / now I write stories of a live and vivid past / that is far from the present like stars in the heavens / wonder what we have to blame for the loss of your presence / brother, we knew you had a hard life / but always found a way I pray that you are alright / T I havent spoke to you in two years / the last time you would tell me of your new fears / wasnt always supportive of your choices / but started telling me that you heard voices / what?

(chorus two)

Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get / Over, over the water / we get

Brother, though we walked a different path / it was all love and we never had to ask / whether you were down for us you were with us to the end / and put poetry on the tip of every pen / you and noble taught me how to be a friend / all of us were boys then trying to be men / you were the brother who would die for us / you would fight never lied to us / but started saying things that I would avoid / called paul in a state and you seemed paranoid / like someone was out to get you / if affected you / didnt know how we wished that we could help you / but told you that you had the strength within yourself / but didnt have the strength to tell you that you needed help / and Im not saying everything you did was right / but living through the darkness it can help to see the light / labeled your self a lost boy / like imagination was your only convoy for joy / there was a time you didnt look us in the eye / fighting for your mind though Im certain that you tried / couldnt finish school be we knew that you were wise / intelligent and passionate your limit was the skies / you should call us up if youre feeling down / I hope to see you soon wish that you were still around my brother
