"Brooklyn" as written by and Luke Pritchard....
Nobody sees my disease
Nobody sees my disease
Sat on a lonely chair
Sat on a lonely chair

Nobody sees my disease
I'm happier when I'm on my knees
She's still living in Brooklyn
She's still living in Brooklyn

Nobody sees my pain
Nobody sees my pain
Sat on a lonely roof
Sat on a lonely roof

Nobody sees my pain
People come they don't care
She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn

Nobody sees my disease

Nobody sees my disease
Nobody sees my disease
Stuck on a lonely chair
People they come they don't care

Nobody sees my disease
I'm happier when I'm on my knees, love
She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn
She still lives in Brooklyn

So you'll never see my disease

    General CommentI love how simple and meloncholic this is, just the piano and repetitive lines. I think his disease is depression. Thinking, she still lives in brooklyn so she'll never see the pain he's in. And other people don't see it, they don't care.

    General CommentI think the disease is him being a drunk after his girl moved away from him. Him being on his knees being the happiest is because thats when your at your drunkest. Throwing up. I could be completely off. thats just my take.

    Nobody sees my disease
    Nobody sees my disease
    Sat on a lonely chair
    Sat on a lonely chair
    Nobody see my disease
    I’m happier when I'm on my knees
    She’s still living in Brooklyn
    She’s still living in Brooklyn
    Nobody sees my pain
    Nobody sees my pain
    Sat on a lonely roof
    Sat on a lonely roof
    Nobody sees my pain
    People come they don’t care
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    Nobody see my disease.

    Nobody sees my disease
    Nobody sees my disease
    Stuck on a lonely chair
    People they come, they don’t care
    Nobody sees my disease
    I'm happier when I'm on my knees love
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    She still lives in Brooklyn
    Say you’ll never see my disease.
