Unknown Brother Lyrics

by The Black Keys

Though I've never met you
And we've spoke not a word
I'll never forget you
Through the stories that I've heard

For you, unknown brother
My baby's mother's in pain
'Cause your soul is in heaven
But your memory remains

Unknown, unknown brother
I'll meet you someday
Unknown, unknown brother
We'll walk through fields where children play

Your eyes shined bright
When you were a kid
Your sisters loved you
And all that you did

Big brother, big brother
Don't worry a bit
Your flame has not faded
Since the day it was lit

Your life was joy
You're mama's only boy
And when the skies are blue
Big brother they're blue for you

We'll smile at pictures
Of you as a boy
Before you retire
To heavenly joy

Unknown, unknown brother
I'll meet you someday
Unknown, unknown brother
We'll walk through fields where children play
