Sister Lyrics

Play "Sister"
on Amazon Music

Passing time with you in mind
It’s another quiet night
Feel the ground against my back
Count the stars against the black

Think about another day
Wishing I was far away
Wherever I dreamed I was
You were there with me

(Chorus)
Sister,...

    I was at a DMB performance in Lisbon, 2015, and that song was in the repertoire. It was the best show I saw, 4 hours of great percussion, improvisation, and great solos. "Sister" is a song that, in my view, represents the love between brothers and that is beyond distances, and it is vital to stay strong. Especially when our parents leave, too. Hugs to fans of this great band.

    He is singing to his sister who was murdered by her husband in 1994. Listen to the first verse. He is looking at the sky at night, "wishing I was far away, wherever I dreamed I was, you were there with me". He wants one more walk with her. When he repeats "keep me please" he is talking about his thoughts of her keep him stong and true.

    This is one of Dave's new solo songs. Before he played it in concert at SPAC as an encore he said that the song was for his sister, Jane. He told the crowd that he and his sister used to say that before Jane was born, part of Dave's heart was put in her chest and part of Jane's heart was put in Dave's chest ("I feel you beating in my chest"). This song is about how Jane could "make the heavens fall just by walking away". GREAT song.
