Jhene Aiko - For My Brother Lyrics

Oh yeah oh oh oh oh
Waves of sadness crashing against the shores of unsureness
So hard for me to understand when doctors they cannot cure this
I wish I could take away your pain
I wish I could trade places
Man I just want you to be okay
Man I just wish I could erase this
I know that life has a funny way
So I'm not complaining
And while I still got you here, still got you here
I hope that you can hear this

Don't give up, don't give up on us
I just want you to hear this
Don't give up on us

See when you were two I was born
And when I was two you were four
And when I was four you were six
And now I'm just sitting here reminiscing
You are more than just my brother
We grew up just like best friends
I know that nothing last forever
But I don't want this to end so...

Don't give up, don't give on us
I just want you to hear this
Don't give up on us

I love you til your last breath
Til the last drop past death
Til forever ends and that's never
Man I won't stop loving you ever
Do you understand, til your last breath
Til the last drop past death
Til forever end and that's never
Man I won't give up on your ever
Please just hear this

Sometimes you gotta walk through the darkness
To get to the light
Sometimes you gotta get through the wrong shit
To get to the right (oh right)
No matter how hard life gets you still gotta fight (fight for me)
Sometimes you gotta walk through the darkness
To get to the light

And if love is real and love can heal
Then on the real I would die for you
Said if love is real and love can heal
Then on the real I would die for you
So don't give up, don't give up, don't give up on us
(I would die for you)
I know you hear this

Don't give up, Don't give up on us
I know that you can hear this
Don't give up, don't give up on us

(And if love is real and love can heal then on the real I would die for you)
Sometimes you gotta walk through the darkness to get to the light
(Said if love is real and love can heal then on the real I would die for you)
Sometimes you gotta go through the wrong shit to get to the right
No matter how hard life gets, you still gotta fight
I'll never give up on you I'll never give up all right
(If it's one thing that you taught me it's how to fight)
I'll never give up on you I'll never give up all right
So don't give up (you still gotta fight) so don't give up
Please don't give up

I had a dream last night
And everything was alright
And you were walking and you were talking just like
Everything was alright and I know
It was for a reason I won't stop believing I won't
(If it's one thing you taught me it's how to fight)

And if the angels call your name
Baby please tell them you're staying
And if the angels call your name
Baby please tell them that you're staying
I know that you can hear this
I know that you can
Don't give up, don't give up on us
Hear me (don't give up)
Hear this
Please hear this, hear this

Die without you I would die without you
Die without you I would die without you
I would die without you I would die without you
I, Yes, I'll die without you I'll die without you
So don't give up on us

  5. Ainsley

    I lost my oldest brother back in October of 2019 I'm I was 14 and he was 21 when I first found out I thought it was a joke I thought they were playing with me but they weren't...It had been so long since I had seen him but we would always be on The phone...this pain really sucks I don't wish it on anyone at all not even my worst enemy 😔 I've been so strong like I have people come up to me and tell me that they don't know how I do it and if they were me they would cry everyday.. I have to be the strong one for the rest of my family but I will never forget my brother the best big brother I could ever ask for🥺💔 it's truly not fair for him to be on a hoodie... everything is going to be okay for anyone who thinks it's now it is one day I promise you just stay strong for your family or for whatever reason you have to stay strong 🥺❤️

  6. Katie Hull x

    My brother died on 9/8/18 from oesophageal cancer. He was 23. I miss him more than words can say. He was my best friend. Sometimes I wake up from sleep and say “oh my god”. I still can’t believe it. His strength and bravery is what keeps me going. I love you forever Robbie 💙

  10. Lijiana Todd

    My brother is going through a really hard time in life right now. He is 18 and has 54 more days in jail by being at the wrong place at the wrong time and he tells everyday how much he can’t wait to come home and start fresh. I pray he will be ok and one day we will all be sitting at dinner laughing him , my mom & I. I love you brother ♥️🙏🏼 Not a day I don’t think about you.

  11. Atiya Gladden

    My brothers died . Not physically , but emotionally . They’re not there for me and they’re so emotionally unavailable . This reminds me of a love from a brother that I never had . And my father is emotionally unavailable as well . so I never had a male role model , (except my uncle but he lives in VA) or someone to simply say that “I’m beautiful “ and etc . It hurts . But I know I’ll be okay .

  12. Is that you R.I.P. KING JACKA

    RIP Kobe

    R.I.P Kobe and Gianna 🙏🏾

  60. Tee Cee

    This is my first time hearing this song. And it hits hard. I lost my dad three years ago. And everyday I feel the pain over again. I pray for everyin who's lost someone dear to them. Thee wounds NEVER heal. But learn to move forward. 💔😭😭.. 9/28/16

    Luojie Hu

    Its hard to apply any logic to someones death.
    However, there is a popular conception that you shouldn't mourn their passing, but simply celebrate their lives.
    All I can say is, it's OK to cry, so let it out, don't choke yourself in negativity.
    When the tears dry, go do something new, and dedicate it to them.

    Anyway, that's what I do ... All the time :-)
    Stay strong.

  61. Bobbi Eleke

    Dear momma ...I'm so sorry I miss and love u soooo much it's so hard Everytime I open my phone I wanna call u but cNt I just want u to know when I look at my kids I definitely see u I just wished they met u and got to know such a amazing woman 💔♥️💕💞💓 I love u and it definitely feels like I'm dying without u 😚 just come to my dreams please

    Luojie Hu

    When people say they want to die to be with someone, they're wrong!
    Because without you living, where would their memories be?
    Stay strong, and you keep them alive inside you forever.
    My deepest condolences.

  62. Chikeyla Berry

    Sending virtual hugs to all who suffered lost

    Luojie Hu

    Right back at you :)

  63. Shannon Dougherty

  65. camyl dee

    my daughter lost her daughter to sids 9 days after she was born. i remember we was driving down the street & this song came on the radio & my daughter pulled over & jus started balling. she is so strong to have gone thru such a tragedy & still remain the beautiful soul that she is. listening to this song is very bittersweet. i love the song, its beautiful. but everytime i hear it,i think of that moment when my baby was hurting so bad & i couldnt fix it. rip laeionni

This year im crying to it again because I lost my son two weeks after celebrating his first birthday. He grew wings on the 19th of March. Still can't believe it. I don't wish this pain on anyone.

  89. Reginas Randoms 84

    Tried last week by ending my own life, and yet I'm continuously pressing replaying this song. I am a mother of four beautiful children that connects my broken heart like a puzzle. This battle has been unending for 8 yrs and never do I get past the third stage of grief by losing custody of my younger children while trying to save them and others children that may have suffered the abuse from my ex hands. Please pray for me everyone as this is such a struggle to not end my life. I miss my other children and my oldest too whom I have custody of and I'm trying to hold on my heart i so 💔. Knowing I gave so much to my ex just for him to sexually abuse my baby boy. I never forget or forgive!!!

    Sierra Missouria

    Wow, you are a fighter. Many would had ended their lives by now. It’ll all work for out!!! Prayers to you and your family ✨ the only time you’ve been defeated is when you quit. Don’t Quit!!!!!!!!

  90. Dominic Trotter

    I just lost my little cousin to suicide. I found out she was schizophrenic, and had just been going through alot personally and mentally. This song really hits home, expresses alot of things that are going through my mind right now. Its only been 4 days, whats worst is it happened on my Birthday, waking up to hear the news broke me, I just really pray this pain fades. But its hard moving on and being happy when people you love are gone...

  91. Ashley Seylaz

  97. Water of Life

    Ecclesiastes 7:2-3
    It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.


    Damn 👌
