Harmonium Song
Written By Matthew Ryan

Tonight there's rain
All on the hill
And tonight I miss my brother
In every heart
Some bitter pills
And tonight I miss my brother
We use to laugh and drink and lean for tomorrow

For each of us
A great story
We rarely share with others
But I was spared
And he was not
And tonight I miss my brother
His last letter home arrived just a day after he died


from I Recall Standing As Though Nothing Could Fall, released June 22, 2011
