"Sister Dew" as written by Thomas Andrew Barman, Julien De Borgher, Craig Ward, Klaas Janssens and Danny Mommens....
Oh my sweet Sister Dew what have I done?
All my life I've only loved the one.
I was taught to be tolerant and plain
I was taught a million things I can't explain.

It must have been the hatred in her eyes
It must have been the power to her lies
Sister tell me there's a place where I can hide

Oh my sweet this is how it did unfold
no my body never felt so calm and cold.
All around us there were people in the park.
No my senses never felt so clear and stark.

And I swear that she saw it in my way
and I'm sure that she heard it in my voice
Sister tell me please I didn't have a choice.

I enjoyed to see her being idle
she never had no worries, nothing vital
from the day I met her to the final, afternoon.
There was something there I can't describe it
we were kicking ass we didn't fight it.
She never once suspected, that she had it, coming soon.

Oh my sweet Sister Dew what have I done?
all my life I've only loved the one.
I was raised with compassion and they said
I was loved for the loving that I spread

Now the only thing remaining is this chill.
and the only emptiness I need to fill
is understanding what it is that made me KILL.

Haaahaaah-haaahaaah-haaahaaah-haaahaaah

Please forgive me if I keep on smiling
but every sad story has a funny side in
from that moment on I felt like crying, every day.
All around us there were people screaming
For half a second I thought I was dreaming
my baby looked at me her eyes were beaming,
I walked away.

Oh my sweet Sister Dew what have I done?
All my life I've never loved no one.
So it dawned on me this should be the place
now the only thing I crave is an embrace.

So let your tender wisdom be mine
and let me come to you like a child
I'd like to stick around here for a while

    General CommentGuess he had a relationship that seemed perfect from the outside, girl loved him, but he never felt love (for her), although he made it seem like he loved her. In the end he breaks up and leaves her confused (?)

    General Commenti think its about a man who killed his girlfriend, wife, dunno.
    he feels bad about it obviously and he turn to his sister for help or something like that. that is what i have understood so far, after listening exactly 114 times to this song :P

    General CommentAgree, it sounds to me to about killing his girlfriend. Always thought the reference to the sister was in the nun sense. May be wrong?

    General Commentsister in nun sense? well i dont know. could be one possibility. but i think tom barman has had very unique experiences with his sister in real life, he has also dedicated the song "7 days, 7 weeks" to her...it seems that shes really special to him i thought he could mean his real sister in this one, too.
    well, its just an idea.

    General CommentI also think it is about a murder. It could be that these lyrics are the thoughts the killer has a few hours after the killing, when the passion resides and the cold fact remains that he has taken a life.
    Dew is of course also a sign of the early morning, so it could be that he killed her during the night and now, at daybreak, is thinking about what he has done. He is alone and rationalizing the act to himself. His loneliness is comforting him at the moment, because he can not face people now can he, being a murderer? So the early morning is his friend, and the dew is his sister.

    Just some thoughts of mine...
