Song Lyric Sunday – Brother by NEEDTOBREATHE

This song is new to me as of this week, but I have to say that I’ve fallen completely in love with it.  It has such a powerful message.  It also makes me think of my own siblings.  Some of them have been with me through everything.  I know the title is “Brother” but aside from my hubby, my sister is my rock, my shelter and my strength.  She’s been with me through it all and I only hope I’ve offered some of those things in return to her as well.

Music is so powerful.  I’m starting to realize that my life isn’t quite complete when I’m not listening to music.

I also want to throw a quick shout out to all my followers each week.  I know I’ve neglected you all terribly in the past month or so, but I have to say that I am constantly amazed at this community and for your willingness to help out and be there with me through everything.  Thank you so much for all the great music along the way too.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the ride to this point and I’m planning to keep it going.

I do hope you enjoy the song.  I apologize for the lateness of my post today, but I’m sure you’ll forgive me!

Ramblers in the wilderness we can’t find what we need
We get a little restless from the searching
Get a little worn down in between
Like a bull chasing the matador is the man left to his own schemes
Everybody needs someone beside em’ shining like a lighthouse from the sea
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Face down in the desert now there’s a cage locked around my heart
I found a way to drop the keys where my failures were
Now my hands can’t reach that far
I ain’t made for a rivalry, I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am stronger
It’s your love that brings me home
Brother let me be your shelter
I’ll never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re feeling low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I can be the one you call
When you’re low
Brother let me be your fortress
When the night winds are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter
Brother let me be your shelter

  1. This song is new to me also. I don’t have a brother (only two younger half-sisters) but I’ve played the “shelter” role with my youngest. I think of it as my first-born obligation to do so. I only wish my middle sibling would let me do the same for her – she wants/has nothing to do with me. It hurts at times.

    Anyway, great song.

    • I’m not sure it has to be about a brother, necessarily; just that person who offers shelter or support. If you do that as a brother, than that’s even better. I’m so happy you liked it!

  2. Love this. New one to me, but my brothers are two of the best people I know, so thanks for sharing this song.

    I especially loved the part about the lighthouse shining a light out toward sea. My own brothers are my guiding lights in a lot of the fog of life.
