The Wayward Son's Brother

The Wayward Son's Brother

Verse 1
Trust me when I say it's good
To have you back again
 It feels so right
To get you with our friends
I'm so happy you're home
That you got the help you need
But what nobody knows
Is what it does to me

Chorus
But what about the wayward son's brother?
Was there jealousy when his brother came home?
I feel so grateful you're back where you belong
But I've never felt so...alone.

Verse 2
It's not like I need the spotlight
To feel accepted
But when all attention is shifted
I feel like I'm rejected

Chorus
But what about the wayward son's brother?
Was there jealousy when his brother came home?
I feel so grateful you're back where you belong
But I've never felt so...alone.

Bridge
Amidst the hugs, the gifts
I'm standing here
Standing here
They ask me if I'm okay
I say I'm fine
But it's a lie
Oh, what a blatant lie!

Chorus
So what about the wayward son's brother?
Was there jealousy when his brother came home?
I feel so grateful you're back where you belong
But I've never felt so...

ALONE. 

The End
