oh sister my dear
I wish that you were here
and i wish that you could hear this song that i sing
oh sister my dear i wish that you were here
and maybe your babies would sing along with me
oh sister my dear
its too bad you had to leave
I never got a chance to tell you
you're my favorite family
that imaginary mouse that you gave to me
has always been one of my favorite memories
oh sister my dear
you know that everyone agreed
losing you and your babies was our biggest tradgedy
for the first time in my life
i saw my daddy cry
and everyone kept asking oh why oh why
and i asked god to save
at least your little baby
but he let me down
and thats when i decided
that there must not be any god around
oh sister my dear
how old would your baby be
if you would have brought him to our house on that halloween
it was 1984 so i guess he'd be 19
I wonder oh wonder what he would think of me
i'll pray for your lover the one you left behind
the one you left behind
the father of your children
who lost his whole life
you family was trying
your future was so bright
and all anyone could say is that just isnt right
and you used to sing to me
oh yeah life goes on long after the thrill of livin is gone
oh yeah life goes on long after the thrill of livin is gone
and i hope that you are right and i hope that i am wrong
and i hope that those are more than words to a silly song
yeah i hope that you are right and i hope that i am wrong
oh sister my dear
they said the only one to blame
was the electricity that made the spark that made the flame
with your babies in your arms you tried so hard to flee
but then the darkness filled your lungs and it put you all to sleep

    General CommentThis is easily the saddest song that Ghost Mice has ever written. It's about Chris' sister and her children to died in a fire. A very good, very sad song.
