"A Life Between Us" as written by and Neil Mullane Finn Brian Timothy Finn....
In so many ways
I'm the same as you
In so many things
Better left unsaid
From out of the deep well
The water flows into the sea

And that's the way it starts
And continues to unfold
But to both of us
That will never change

And we're staring at
Each other
Like the banks of
A river
And we can't get
Any closer

I won't give control to anyone
Walk around, kiss the ground
Like I own the place
But in the passage of time
The river banks get washed away

And that's the way it starts
And continues to evolve
I reveal myself
You watch over me

And we're staring at
Each other
Like the banks of
A river
And we can't get
Any closer
But we form a life
Between us

And brother
(Not my way
Must be the different direction we're facing

Not my way
You're still as unknown
As ever

Are you still someone
Who'll watch over me

And we're staring at
Each other
Like the banks of
A river
And we can't get
Any closer

But we form a life
Yes, we form a life
Between us
Between us

    General Commentclearly a song about each other, being brothers
    many tunes on the album are about that, in fact.
