Song Lyric Sunday: a new song

SongLyricSundayThis week Helen has prompted us to come up with a new song for Song Lyric Sunday which we’ve only recently heard for the first time. This one has really made me rack my brains! It’s fair to say that my taste in music hasn’t changed or expanded much in the last decade.  I put this down to the fact that I now mainly listen to whatever my two daughters want to listen to… ie an awful lot of Disney film soundtracks, nursery rhymes, story CDs and the like.

Luckily, now that my oldest daughter is 12, she’s starting to get more grown up taste in music.  This is a song she’s introduced me to recently. I’m not sure who Avicii is/ are (a band? a solo artist? a popular beat combo? I have literally no idea) but I guess it doesn’t matter. This, in my humble, out-of-touch, maternal opinion, is really rather good:

Hey brother, there’s an endless road to re-discover.
Hey sister, know the water’s sweet but blood is thicker.
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

Hey brother, do you still believe in one another?
Hey sister, do you still believe in love, I wonder?
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

What if I’m far from home?
Oh, brother I will hear you call.
What if I lose it all?
Oh, sister I will help you out!
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

Hey brother, there’s an endless road to re-discover.
Hey sister, do you still believe in love, I wonder?
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

What if I’m far from home?
Oh, brother I will hear you call.
What if I lose it all?
Oh, sister I will help you out!
Oh, if the sky comes falling down for you,
There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do.

  1. I agree with inkedautist. I’ve written so many bands/singers down today to check out even more of their music. I fell in love with Avicii’s song “Wake Me Up” but I didn’t check out more of his music, for some reason. This one is making me rethink it. I’m definitely going to check out more. 🙂

    Oh, I looked him up. His name is Tim Bergling (his stage name is Avicii) and he is a Swedish electronic musician among other things. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing this one. I loved it!
