My brother came from Houston with a Bible in his hand
Said he’d been to heaven, said he’d seen the Son of Man
He was shivering on the front stoop like a bird without a wing
I looked around the neighborhood then I invited him in

For seven years he traveled, traveled through the states
I was just a kid then, I tried to take his place
I traced his every movement til I rendered him away
Now he comes back like a saint, he hardly knows the place

And the dives we loved are still up on William Street
And the blue light glows and it might be all I need
Then you come running back home, running back home

The southcoast is a loner but he warms up with a drink
He started telling me his secrets when I said I had to leave
Then most of us got married, half of us had kids
What you gonna do with this life? You can’t do everything

My brother holds his prayer beads, he walks chanting to the sea
I gotta reason with his visions while I try to watch T.V.
You always said that you would find me even when I was hard to see
Well I’m a sucker for the dream, I’ll believe if you believe

And the dives we loved are still up on William Street
And the blue light glows but it’s never all I need
So I come running back home, running back home
