Dream Brother by Jeff Buckley

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (Jeff Buckley) raised as Scooty Moorhead, when later on he will changed his name into Jeff Buckley. His father was also a musician, Tim Buckley, left him with his mother and eventually died on drugs overdosed. Jeff was raised by Ron Moorhead (step father), but he found his birth certificate after his father death and changed into his real first name which is Jeffrey Scott Buckley.

Jeff only met his biological father once when he was eight. This song, Dream Brother, was dedicated to a friend of his who was thinking of leaving his pregnant girlfriend, supposedly twins.

Best lines: “Don’t be like the one who made me so old, don’t be like the one who left behind his name. Cause they’re waiting for you, like I waited for mine and nobody ever came” was meant for his friend and Jeff urged his friend not to be like his father who only left behind a name for him. Buckley.

"Dream brother, with your tears scattered round the world"

Dream Brother

There is a child sleeping near his twin
The pictures go wild in a rush of wind
That dark angel he is shuffling in
Watching over them with his black feather wings unfurled

The love you lost with her skin so fair
Is free with the wind in her butterscotch hair
Her green eyes blew goodbyes
With her head in her hands
and your kiss on the lips of another
Dream Brother with your tears scattered round the world.

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came…

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
And nobody ever came…

Don’t be like the one who made me so old
Don’t be like the one who left behind his name
‘Cause they’re waiting for you like I waited for mine
Nobody ever came
Nobody ever…

I feel afraid and I call your name
I love your voice and your dance insane
I hear your words and I know your pain
With your head in your hands and her kiss on the lips of another
Your eyes to the ground and the world spinning round forever
Asleep in the sand with the ocean washing over
