"Sister" as written by and Kate Marie Nash....
There was this cool, cool girl
She was about your age
She kinda had your smile
She kinda had your face
(x2)

She wanted to be my lover
But my heart was with another and
Yeah I really wish that we could be friends
But I know that I’ll never get you back again
I just wish that you would answer the phone
‘Cause, I could really do with talking to you right now

Another girl broke my heart; it hurt
I even wrote you poetry
So now I’m scarred
I look up into the sky and
I wish that I could fly
High

Sister, sister
Well, don’t ya know how much I missed ya?
Well, I might get my, my sister
You were so sly
I missed ya
Well, sister, sister, don’t ya know how much I missed ya?
Sister?

She wanted to be my lover
But my heart was with another and
Yeah I really wish that we could be friends
But I know that I’ll never get you back again
I just wish that you would answer the phone
‘Cause, I could really do with talking to you right now

It’s not fair to watch you walk away like this
I just wish that I could get one more kiss
You gave it, you gave it to another
And it’s not fair on me to trust ya
To be ripped away from you, is like being ripped out of the room
I’m sorry is that too dramatic? I should just be far more placid
Well blah-blah, blah-blah, me myself and I
I’m so funny oh my god ha ha

She wanted to be my lover
But my heart was with another and
Yeah I really wish that we could be friends
But I know that I’ll never get you back again
I just wish that you would answer the phone
‘Cause, I could really do with talking to you right now

She wanted to be my lover
But my heart was with another and
Yeah I really wish that we could be friends
But I know that I’ll never get you back again
I just wish that you would answer the phone
‘Cause, I could really do with talking to you right now

    General CommentAlright, so when I first heard it I thought this song was about internalized homophobia/heteronormativity. The speaker has a boyfriend but finds herself attracted to a girl. At first she tries to excuse it, saying that it was just because she was similar to the speaker's boyfriend. The girl wants more than friendship from the speaker and that relationship falls apart.
    Except that sort of stops making sense after the first verse and chorus. So my revised idea is the speaker has fallen in love with a friend, but is at first stopped by the fact that the speaker is already dating someone. When that relationship ends and they finally do get to be something more, the speaker's prospective lover cheats on her/otherwise separates from her.
