Katie you're a brave girl, and I know its only just started.
I'm gonna be there at 6, with some flowers on sticks
That were clipped just to make the weak strong.
And Katie, its a strange world when girls can get so broken hearted
If it were me and the universe, I'd get the worst of this gone.

Katie, Katie I'm sorry that in your condition
The sunshine's been missing but Katie,
Don't believe that it isn't there.
Oh and Katie, Katie be happy
This world can be ugly, but isn't it beautiful?
We're not really here, and we're really not there
We're really not there.

Katie you're a brave girl and courage is something I'll need now.
'Cause its been a hell of a day I've spent fading away
We all fade sometimes, I believe
And Katie its a strange world as I watch our tables get turned around
And you've got the strength that I've lost
Who'd have thought you'd be carrying me?

And Katie, Katie I'm sorry that in your condition
The sunshine's been missing but Katie,
Don't believe that it isn't there.
Oh and Katie, Katie be happy
This world can be ugly, but isn't it beautiful?
We're not really here, and i'm really not there

Whoa
Whoa

And it's not the end of the world,
It's not the end of the world,
It's not the end of the world,
'Cause the cops wouldn't break up this party.

And Katie, Katie I'm sorry that in your condition
The sunshine's been missing but Katie,
Don't believe that it isn't there.
Oh and Katie, Katie be happy
This world can be ugly, but isn't it beautiful?
We're not really here, and we're really not there.

Oh Katie, Katie I'm sorry that in my condition
Your sunshine's been missing but Katie,
Don't believe that it isn't there
Oh Katie, Katie be happy
This world can be ugly but isn't it beautiful?
We're not really here, and we're really not there
We're really not there,
We're really not there.

Katie, you're a brave girl,
And I know its only just started.

    General Commentto me, it shows the true bond of a brother and a sister. I found out when I turned 21 that I have a 16 year old brother. We immediatly bonded in a way I can't describe. Even with 16 years apart and never meeting, he and I bonded. A sibling bond is a bond that can not be recreated.

    General Commentactually, he wrote it for her before he was diagnosed...

    well he started to.


    Katie was sick also. I'm not sure what. Andrew never specified in any interviews, but he started to write it for her when she was sick.
    I think that's what the first verse was about..

    "I'm gonna be there at 6, with some flowers on sticks
    That were clipped just to make the weak strong."

    Then after he was diagnosed and she ended up being a positive donor, he finished the song. I think that's why it says in the second verse "

    just all the love behind this song makes it so beautiful, and it also made me consider donating some of my bone marrow, and keeping some aside for my family incase something happens.

    General Commenti love this song. how awesome must it be to have andrew for a brother. i agree that this song really shows the bond between siblings. i have 2 older brothers and 1 older sister (5, 6, and 7 years older, respectively), and even though we may all fight at times, we are always there for each other, and nothing can break that.
