Brother (A Boromir Song)

Brother.
Tune: Downtown.
Tune can be heard at: http://joeltr.home.comcast.net/midi_tracks/oldies/Downtown.htm

Do you remember when you lifted my sword
And nearly fell back down, brother?
You said that you would guard the city and lands
And never let them down, brother.
I laughed but still I wondered at the strength of will within you
And hoped that I would see the prize such faithfulness would bring you.
Now far away, I wonder if I will see
Again your dear well-loved features, your welcome for me.
You're a brother such as no man can claim,
Brother, you bless the very name,
Brother, yours is the face I would see!

All our endeavours would not burden me so
If you were with me here, brother.
Sometimes on night watch I have thought that I felt
Your presence very near, brother.
I know your thoughts aren't far away, I know you would be with me
If only father trusted you like me, can you forgive me?
Now far away, I wonder if I will see
Again your dear well-loved features, your welcome for me.
You're a brother such as no man can claim,
Brother, you bless the very name,
Brother, yours is the face I would see!

Maybe I'm bringing home a king to reward you
For fidelity, brother.
Maybe I had to leave one brother back there
That I could notice this other.
And Gondor's hope may not be spent and time may bring our glory
And Faramir and Boromir live on in myth and story.
Now far away, I wonder if I will see
Again your dear well-loved features, your welcome for me.
You're a brother such as no man can claim,
Brother, you bless the very name,
Brother, yours is the face I would see!
