Lyrics of Sister

I’m tired Tired of always losing I tried to stop your fire Turns out that I couldn’t I’m tired Tired of competing I tried to hold you under But honey you kept breathing When you said you wanted the world I said you couldn’t too You were walking right beside me But I left no room for you Calling you my enemy but my enemy’s right here It was my mistake to try and break that power that I feared I see flames in your eyes Damn they burn so bright Oh you gotta know I’m with ya Now shine like city lights Torches in the sky Don’t you try to hide it SISTER I’m sorry Sorry for the drama I tried to steal your thunder Turns out I don’t wanna When you said you wanted the world I said you couldn’t too You were walking right beside me But I left no room for you Calling you my enemy but my enemy’s right here It was my mistake to try and break Your power that I feared I see flames in your eyes Damn they burn so bright Don’t you try to hide it SISTER SISTER SISTER Don’t you try to hide it SISTER SISTER SISTER Don’t you try to hide it I see flames in your eyes Damn they burn so bright Oh you gotta know I’m with ya Now shine like city lights Torches in the sky Don’t you try to hide it Don’t you try to hide it SISTER
