A feeling sleeping deep inside
You hide it so I'll never find
Today I think I'll waste my time
You never notice, you are blind

The dream I have can never be
To photograph what the eye can't see
I fight to live another day
I live to find out, come what may

Faith in the lord is something I can never have
Faith in my sister is gonna set me free
Faith in the lord is something I will never have
Cause the lord I know don't got not faith in me

Your my lover, Your my lover
Your my lover, Your my lover

She gives me light when the sun goes down
She gives me strength when I don't drown
She gives me hope and destiny
She gives me air that I can breathe

Faith in the lord is something I can never have
Faith in my sister is gonna set me free
Faith in the lord is something I will never have
Cause the lord I know don't got not faith in me

Your my lover, I'm your brother
Your my lover, I'm your brother

Faith in the lord is something I can never have
Faith in my sister is gonna set me free
Faith in the lord is something I will never have
Cause the lord I know don't got not faith in me

Your my lover, I'm your brother
Your my lover, I'm your brother
Your my lover, I'm your brother
Your my lover, I'm your brother

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, in about 1998, I had it on repeat for hours. Still today, 10 years on almost to the day I still don't tire of it. The corus used to remind me of another famous song but i've heard it too much now.

    I think it's about having love and faith in your sister (or brother) - your friend, relative or lover rather than faith in religion. He gets everything (food, air etc) from his 'sister', and nothing from 'the lord'.

    I always thought the corus should climb back up a key towards the end of loveeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrr....

    General CommentI read a while back that when Oasis started out they were the warm up for a band called "Sister Lovers" which might have been where Noel's phrase came from....

    General Commentthink it is a joke song tbh. either that or its using the term "sister" in that whole "we're all brothers and sisters" sense.
