I do relate to you in so many ways
But I didn't go through what you must have in those early days
You had to be strong at such a very young age
A new life on Lima Lane

So won't you listen to me now?
There's something I never told you, and I'm about to try
See, you were my lifeline when the world was exploding

You moved back in with us in the Fall of '82
I fell into dark times and you were there to help me through
You told me that a downturn will eventually improve
And you were right, so I'm thanking you

So won't you listen to me now?
There's something I never told you, and I'm about to try
See, you were my lifeline when the world was exploding
Footholds eroding
Had you never been my friend
I wouldn't be quite what you see
I wouldn't be the man I am

Sister you’ve known me (Sister you’ve known me)
Lost in a strange world (Sister you’ve known me)
What has it shown me? (Sister you’ve known me)
What has it done for us? (Sister you’ve known me)
Sister you’ve known me (Sister you’ve known me)
Lost in a strange world (Sister you’ve known me)
What has it shown me? (Sister you’ve known me)
What has it done for us? (Sister you’ve known me)

I’ve told the children of that old dusty town
When Halloween came I was still feeling down
Momma, lost my sweet tooth, what’s the point in going round?
Your boy is losing count
Maybe try the lost in found
