about

Tommy is an amazing R&B singer who heard me singing this song at a show. He asked if he could cover it simply and blew me away. Tommy and I will be collaborating on more music very soon!

lyrics

Brother time
won't you slow down?
won't you slow down?
and give me a minute
to get back in it
catch my breath
I'm still goin'
but I could use a little rest

Brother time
you know you used to be my friend
a big blue sky
that went on without end
a slow-rolling boxcar
on a steady uphill climb
I could see where I was going
I could hop off any time

But now
everything's changed
Now
You got yourself an aeroplane
and you fly, you fly, you fly
Brother time
Brother time
Brother time

Now, I'm not asking
for some machine
to take me back
take me back
I'm still strong
I'm strong and I'm ready
And I'll take on this world
if this world'll just hold steady

But now
everything's changed
Now
it's not the same
you fly, you fly, you fly

Brother time
won't you slow down
won't you slow down
and give me a minute
give me a minute
to catch my breath
I'll be fine
you go on ahead
Brother time
Brother time
Brother time
