"Sister Beams" as written by and Brent Best....
Sister beams with girlish pride and a smile worn ear to ear
A lifetime's dream, a wedding scene, her precious day draws near
An empty home and a life alone, that's all she's ever feared
Yesterday her fiance, he made his plans real clear

He said, "golden-haired, your sister's fair and she's been so good to me
But a lifetime bound and tied down, that's one I just can't see."
Then he said he must have lost his head when it struck him to agree
He said, "you're a man and you should understand a man has certain needs."

Now every day is just the same
And the hours move by so slow
Every day is like the day before, like every day but I know
It won't be like the one I leave behind me when I go

Sister, she don't talk too loud now that things are through
She's waiting on some old advice but it'll never come true
And she asks me if I'll stay with her but I've got some things to do
You see, now he's dead, he must have lost his head when I struck him
With what to do

Now every day is just the same
And the hours move by so slow
Every day is like the day before, like every day but I know
It won't be like the one I leave behind me when I go

    General Commenti can't believe i am like the only one commening on this song. It is really awesome. I really don't get it, though, but i like it becasue it is like clasic American rock with some psychadelic influences.

    General CommentOkay I think I got it... But I'm not sure. But I love this song. Yeah anyway, okay it's a GUY singing it... So I'm thinking it's the girl's brother. So when it's saying "sister" it means his sister. So they were happy and about to get married and the guy tells her brother that he can't do it. So either 1: tells him he might as well kill myself becuase his lyfe will suck without her. Or 2: the brother kills him. I think it's 2 because he tell his sister, "I've got some things to do, You see now he's dead" ((Wow, this shit was long... I hope it makes sence.))
