And oh what have we here?
Just cigarette smoke and Hollywood tears
And oh brother, all those years
You sat down to talk me through those fears

Too young to leave me brother
Those days we had won't ever pass me by

So let's go back to football fields and backyard alleyways
Before God let you down boy, and took your life away
Too young to leave me brother
Those days we had that won't ever pass me by
Oh brother, brother...

You're too young to leave now
You're too young to stand aside
You're just another stolen so I know
Oh brother, brother
You're just another stolen soul

So let's go back to football fields and backyard alleyways
Before God let you down boy, and took your life away

    General CommentThis song is written about Rob's (lead singer of The Slow Show) Grandfather who one day told him that in his teens he'd lost a 16 year old brother.

    Song MeaningReally powerful song;

    So let's go back to football fields and backyard alleyways
    Before God let you down boy, and took your life away

    Hits me every time.
