Sister – Song Lyric Sunday – Siblings/Brothers/Sisters



Today’s SLS has us finding songs that are about siblings/brothers/sisters.

To join in, and also see other entries, just click the below link. Thanks, Jim!


Well, I think I was confused a little about this prompt. I thought it meant to find singing groups that included sisters or brothers or siblings that performed in the same band. Then, after seeing some other entries, I figured it was to find songs with the words brother/sister/sibling in the title or lyrics.

I finally decided to just go with this one, which is one of my favorite songs. I have the CD too, because of this song. They sing about ‘sister’, and missing her, and I miss seeing my sister, even though we live in the same state. It’s been years since we’ve gotten together, because we don’t travel, and she and her family don’t either.


From an article:

The Nixons are an American alternative rock band which formed in 1989. They found commercial success during the mid-1990s, releasing two major label albums through MCA Records in 1995–1997. The band are best known for the hit single “Sister”.


“Sister”, by the Nixons, was their biggest hit single, from the album “Foma”, released in 1995.

Here’s a link to their home page, which tells more about this Oklahoma City band, and includes photos.


Here I am again,
Overwhelming feelings
A thousand miles away
From your ocean home
Part of me is near
Thoughts of what we were invade
The miles that stand between
We can’t separate
Your all I hoped you’d become
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
Fleeting visits pass
Still they satisfy
Reminders of the next
Overshadow goodbye
Our flames burn as one
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
All I am begins with you
Thoughts of hope understood
Half of me breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true
Here we are again saying goodbye
Still we fall asleep underneath the same sky
You’re all I knew you’d become
Sister I see you
Dancing on the stage
Of memory
Sister I miss you
Entwined, you and I
Our souls speak from across the miles
Intertwined, you and I
Our blood flows from the same inside
Half of me, breathes in you
Thoughts of love remain true
I see you, I feel you
When I close my eyes
I see walking there…
I see you dancing in my mind

    • Thanks, Jim!
      No, it’s not really about a dead sister, though many think so, and the song is played at memorial services for lost loved ones.
      Zac Maloy, who wrote the song, says on his blog, that the inspiration came because his sister had just moved to the west coast, and he missed her. 🙂

  1. Like your choice Barbara! It’s kinda like a sisterhood song to me. Like if you were to say “brother” to your fallen soldiers. Am I getting that right? I don’t remember this or the band. Thanks for giving me new music! 🙂

    • Thanks, Lisa! That is a different way of thinking about this song, and I do see what you mean. All I know is what I read on his blog, that he was missing his sister who’d moved across the country to the west coast. 🙂

      • Well, because I was in the Marine Corps and we were taught to work as a team or everyone fails or everyone succeeds…a sisterhood/brotherhood is formed or you hate everyone’s guts. That is another insider to why the Marines are the few…. 🙂

      • Oh, of course! I get it now, and for sure that is super important to be as one united team of sister/brother in the service. 🙂
