A boy flies for freedom
But dies for the peace
In the clouds, he waits for an answer
But there's no release

It's strange here without you
And it's so hard to see
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Oh brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

I still see his shadow
His laugh lingers on
When I dream, we're all back together
When I wake, he's gone
It's strange here without you
This was not ment to be
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

And though we try to change the world
A flower when it's cut will surely die
So why do men with so much hate
Destroy what they cannot create
While we all stand by

We will look back in anger
But you helped us to see
So brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

Oh brother up in heaven
Please wait up for me

    General CommentIts about guitarist Ian Bairnson's cousin. A pilot killed during Desert Shield or Storm I believe.

    General CommentThis song is (obviously) about a guy who lost someone near to him.A brother (if you take the lyrics literally), or a friend. The first verse suggests that he went off to a war or something, but died. It's a really good song, I listen to it a lot. :)
