"Sisters" as written by and Benjamin P Cooper....
I tied your shoes while you sat and watched the rain
Hands folded across your lap and the dull look of peace across your face
Mom down the hall, Bible pressed to her chest
When she swore the Devil hides in everything, and her room was the only safe haven left

She watched us grow through window panes

Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something's in the way

You had held my hand while the wind whistled nocturnes in the dark

Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something's in the way

Never knew what it meant to be whole and free

Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something in the middle
Something's in the way

Neither one of them mocks if we steer from paths only they can see

But sink or swim is all they'd say

Your hand rode the wind out the window of the train
We slept in our seats with our knees curled beneath our dirty chins
Dad gripped the bags like they might fly away
And the scenery beyond the glass was liquid, we sat and soaked it in

I felt your breath along the way

I'd hold your hand when the sky fell apart
And you would hold my hand if you felt me slipping back into the dark
I can't tell from the ground if the sky will fall
I can't tell from the sky if there's anybody down there at all

It's empty inns and empty plates

    General CommentI think he last line is "it's an empty empty place"


    I'm posting these as comments rather than editing the lyrics because I'm not sure if they are correct. I have just made 1 edit to the lyrics which I am absolutely sure of.

    I also requested Ben for the official lyrics.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's "She watched you scrub through our window panes".
