Sittin’ by the open fire place
In my favorite dungarees.
Played a few bars of a melody
And it sounded sweet to me.
I thought I’d get and take a look around
But my feet got in the way.
Stumbled to the floor,
She was right in the door.
I could see her face.
But how could it be?
She ran away from me.
My best friend’s gone,
I’m so all alone.

I kinda miss you, Brandy.
I’m so all alone,
When are you comin’ back home?
I really miss you, Brandy.
Missin’ you every day,
Are you comin’ home to stay?
Cause I love you, Brandy.

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Sippin’ on a cherry soda pop
Building houses made of sand.
Like a little child with a fantasy
Just a fraction of a man.
But I was in love when they put her down
On my doorstep in the rain.
I could feel the love comin’ to my heart
Through my window pain.
But how could I know
She would just up and go?
My best friend gone,
I’m so all alone.

I really miss you, Brandy.
I’m so all alone,
When are you comin’ back home?
I really miss you, Brandy.
Missin’ you every day,
Are you comin’ home to stay?

    General Comment:Taken at face value, I'd say this song is about loving a childhood friend and losing her. But, for some reason, I keep reading into this song that it could be about a dog. Either way, I like it!

    General Comment:it was a a childhood friend... its more like she was left on his doorstep when he was little and they grew up together but when she got older she ran away... my names brandy and my uncle played this song for me at my graduation party and hes a dj so he knows a lilttle about music himself.
