Ethan, when'd you get so beautiful?
Your brother was a friend of mine
I knew him back before he ever joined the army
You have his blue eyes

This was back in 1998
The only thing we knew was time
We'd hit up every bar from here to Chula Vista
He only drank wine

He used to sing karaoke like a freight train
You should've seen him hit those highs
One time he got real drunk and sang "Surrender"
Cross my heart, he made the whole bar cry
And every girl wished that he would want to dance
But he never seemed to know he had the chance
That was part of what made him such a hero
See, he never knew he was

Do you believe that I'd ever lie to you?
His voice was a kind of smile, he could shake it and move rooms
I know that the last day of his life is known as his finest
But the truth is the greatest thing he did
Were all the times he stopped and shook his head, and said:

"I'm gonna marry that girl"

Let's sing "Surrender"
I'll take the low parts
If you promise me that you will take the highs
