Hey guys,

Here’s another Canadian song Add and I often listen to while we’re cooking or working out. I’m not sure why we like it, but for some reason it just kind of feels good. I like the lyrics “words of the song” as well as the feeling.

The song is by “Sam Roberts”. It’s called “Brother Down”. The song was what they call a “one hit wonder”. This is a great phrase to understand in spoken English.

If a band or singer is a “One hit wonder” it means they made one and only one song during their career that got super popular.

Some bands and singers make many great and popular songs. Many bands and singers make one song almost everyone knows, and all their other stuff either sucks or just isn’t popular. I haven’t heard a lot of music from Sam Roberts, but I do know this song and I know he’s referred to as a “One hit wonder”. Here is the video of the song. Below are the lyrics. Will LOVE to hear what you think!!

One life to live but we’re doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down ’cause it’s nothing to me
Everyone’s saying that it’s wrong to cheat
But there’s no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you’re living for
Been knocking you down now you’re looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they’re bringing you war

Rich man crying ’cause his money is time
Poor man smiling ’cause he knows he ain’t blind
There’s a man over there says he’s tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back ’cause it don’t mean nothing
If you give it away and you’re looking for something back
Wake up every morning and there’s nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what your living for
been knocking you down now your looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they’re bringing you war

One life to live but we’re doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down ’cause it’s nothing to me
Rich man crying crying cause his money is time
Poor man smiling cause he knows he ain’t blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

One life to live but we’re doing it wrong you see

    a nice song with a deep thought, it’s definitely worth listening to again and again – one of the songs you might enjoy later, when the the message sinks in)
    However, i’d say it’s a bit pessimistic (i mean, “my life is passing me by refrain” is quite sad) and the guys stuck on a boat in the open sea without much water or provision.
    At the same time, it somehow reminded me of Three in the boat – i did notice 4 people, still )) – great book, pleasant memories.

    thanks for sharing!
    P.S. guys, i’m new on the website,I’ve recently found your podcasts – accidently, I might add.=) Loving them! Thanks a million for doing it! They are of tremendous help to me! And yeah, i’m telling all my friends about them!
    =)
