BROTHER

Brother
Hard to see you lying there
Brother
The pain is hard to bear
Seems just like yesterday we were running in the sun
Nobody to tell us what to do or how it should be done
Wouldn’t listen anyway –(spoken)

Brother
Your brothers are missing you
Brother
All those crazy things we used to do
A bond formed from pain nothing to hold on to but each other
Through the good times and the bad times nothing can ever break that chain
Don’t even try –(spoken)

Brothers Forever
Brothers Together
Fighting the storm
Just each other to keep us warm
Brothers Forever

Brother
Hear us calling your name
Brother
Nothing could ever be the same
Getting older in the twilight of our years
A million roads we traveled inside we cried a million tears
But never showed it –(spoken)
Never will –(spoken

Brothers Forever
Brothers Together
Fighting the storm
Just each other to keep us warm
Brothers Forever

The song is written and performed by Steve Patruno – Song Title “Brother” – In memory of Gary Milano


2% BLUES

You feel the world’s turned it’s back on you
No matter how you try no matter what you do
Temperature’s risin’ an overheated thermostat
Sick of hearin’ people talkin’ ‘bout this an that
Life ain’t to easy doin what we do
We all got the 2% BLUES

The hurt is way down, down to the bone
Don’t really want to fight just please leave me alone
But you push till we can’t take no more
And you wonder why we’re breakin’ down you’re door
Life ain’t to easy doin what we do
We all got the 2% BLUES

Just me and my brothers singin’ our own song
We ain’t always right but we ain’t always wrong
What we do we do to survive
‘Cause the pain make’s it hard just to feel alive

solos-

We were just little babies that you held in your arms
Your love and guidance was supposed to keep us from harm
But then you put us down on the floor
Turned your back then you walked out the door
Then you wonder why we do what we do
Don’t you get it YOU gave us these 2% BLUES

solos, out-

Written and performed by Steve Patruno with Chris Mastakis on harmonica


ALONE TOGETHER

Get up in the mornin’ it’s the same old stuff
Got to tell ya think I’ve had enough
Don’t mess with me ‘cause you’re gonna hit some bad weather
Just got my brothers and we’re doin’ it ALONE TOGETHER

Nobody understands what’s inside of me
Sometimes I’m so mad I can hardly see
Only time it feel right is when we’re all together
My brothers and I doin’ it ALONE TOGETHER

(chorus)
Feelin just like some refugee
Everyday is like bein’ in the DMZ
You found some people who hurt just like you
And you became your own family

solo
chorus

Walkin down the street you’re all in step
Don’t care about the 2% bad rep
‘cause nobody knows the pain that is forever
six guys doin it their way ALONE TOGETHER

Written and performed by Steve Patruno
