Hey, sister

I tuned my acoustic guitar to DADGBD and suddenly this heartfelt tune came out. As soon as I played the first notes I knew I wanted to make it a letter to my sister, talking about family.

It was really hard to record this, because I would break into tears every time. But here it is, and it's probably my favorite song ever.


Hey, sister
It’s been a while we talked
I hope you are OK
It’s such a lovely day

I wonder how you are
It’s hard to live so far
Your boys, they grow so fast,
They’re turning into better versions of ourselves

It’s been 10 years since our father passed
I’m sure he would be so proud of them
And in these times I remember him
And see that life is precious as it is

Hey, sister
How’s the new job?
I heard you like it more
It opened many doors

I wanna fly to see you
Mom and everyone too
Just waiting for the world
To calm down a little bit more

It’s hard to believe that it’s been so long
Since we last saw each other
And life’s not easy but I can’t complain
I still think that we're the lucky ones

Hey, sister
Now I have to go
It’s been a busy weekend
These chores they never end

I have to finish dinner
We’re having beans again
I’d love to cook for you
One of these days when you’re around

I hope this letter will find you well
And say the things that I could never tell
Say hello to our mom for me
Soon we’ll be together, you will see
