Song Description

The sadness of letting go of a changing relationship with a sister because she's getting married.

Story Behind the Song

My little sister, whom I am very close to, got married at the base of a pyramid ruin in the Yucatan region of Mexico. I always protected her and this song brought out that I was turning her over to someone else to do that job.

Lyrics

Sister

There's snow on the Lions, the seasons are changing
Again, joy and sorrow, my sister you've married
A man 'mongst the ruins of Yucatan, ancient hearts
Weep with me, sister, I'm letting you go.

You say that you carried a rose for our Mother,
There was no beauty in her grave long ago
Oh but autumns have drifted, we've cried together,
Does your man know your sadness and bliss in Mexcio

Can gambling go lightly when it comes to love,
Too many spades in the game,
And I've carried two hearts
Will this lighten the load?
Sister oh sister, it's a strange and hard road,

That I've travelled, I carried you when you were small,
Shadows of laughter dance they across walls,
With photos of brown eyes in my bigger arms,
Ah look at you darlin', I wish away harm,

And I try to gamble lightly when it comes to love,
Too many spades dealt when you carry two hearts.


And the snow on the Lions will grow heavy and flow
Ancient ones crying of east Mexico
And the west coast and the islands
And the pain in my heart
Will sing, "Sister, sister, can we ever part?"
Sing, "Sister, sister, can we ever part?".
