Missing you, my brother. Spaced out miles between us.
I remember when we sat on the shore.
We talked about my great white north.

I'll see you soon and we will laugh (we will laugh out loud)
At how far we have come (we will spin the wheel of time around)

My alcoholic afternoons and sleepless prozac nights.
Clouds of smoke around us.
I miss you and your Lancaster ways.

I'll see you soon and we will laugh (we will laugh out loud)
At how far we have come (we will spin the wheel of time around)
I'll see you soon and we will laugh (we will laugh out loud)
At how far we have come (we will spin the wheel of time around)

I sit to contemplate the waves of the ocean.
They bring me back to you.

You weren't like the others.
With their empty eyes and plastic smiles.
You weren't like the others.
With their empty eyes and plastic smiles.

    General Commentim proud to say the beautiful mistake is from Riverside, CA. this song could be about his brother or a close friend and how they will reminece in the future when they see eachother once again. i dont understand the lyric "we talked about my great white north" its kinda strange

    General CommentWhen he talks about "my great white north," he's talking about Canada. Josh is from Canada.

    General CommentI miss my brother, he goes to college in PA.
    over the years, him and I have grown apart because I live in california. He's really an intelligent guy... he's into philosophy and stuff, so he really thinks life through. He never had a plastic smile, and his eyes are full of anticipation. I dont know what happened to him though
