I’ve made a point of periodically sharing quality music with an uplifting message that I think can enrich people’s lives. There’s so much sound pollution out there you really have to use a filter if you want to remain in the driver’s seat. Right now one of my favorite songs is “Brother” by Seneca, South Carolina-based, Grammy-award-winning band, NeedToBreathe. The song is about the love and loyalty of a brother. The song begins with the premise that we all need others we can depend on to help us weather life’s storms. The artist affirms his willingness to fulfill that role and be a rock of refuge for his brother. Whether the brother is a blood relationship or a close friend the message is one and the same: united we stand, divided we fall. You can find the complete lyrics (courtesy of Genius) and the music video down below. Enjoy.

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: NEEDTOBREATHE]
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

[Chorus: NEEDTOBREATHE]
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

[Verse 2: Gavin Degraw]
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 rivalry I could never take the world alone
I know that in my weakness I am strong
But it’s your love that brings me home

[Chorus: NEEDTOBREATHE]
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 wheels are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home

[Bridge: Gavin DeGraw]
And when you call
And need me near
Say it where’d you go
Brother, I’m right here
And on those days
When the sky begins to fall
You’re the blood of my blood
We can get through it all

[Chorus: NEEDTOBREATHE]
Brother, let me be your shelter
Never leave you all alone
I could be the one you call
When you’re feeling low
Brother, let me be your fortress
When the night wheels 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 wheels are driving on
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
Be the one to light the way
Bring you home
