Sister Lyrics - Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews

Review The Song (28)



Passing time with you in mind
It’s another quiet night
Feel the ground against my back
CountING stars against the black

Think about another day
Wishing I was far away
Wherever I dreamed I was
You were there with me

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, keep me

I hope you always know it’s true
I would never make it through
You could make the sun go DARK
Just by walking away

Playing like we used to play
Like it would never go away
I feel you beating in my chest
I’d be dead without

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, you keep me


I hope you always know it’s true
I would never make it through
You could make the heavens fall
Just by walking away

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, you keep me

I just lost my sister Grace to cancer and i find that music has made me feel closer to her. I was hooked on Dave's song "grace is gone" ironically my sisters name is grace. but then the other day and found the song "sister"...... Thank You Dave !

Sister | Reviewer: T.B.S. in heaven | 1/5/12

Alas, I also feel touched by this song. My 2 year old sister was mis-diagnosed and passed away 8 years ago, and now I am just trying to remember what things were like. I can barely remember.

My Sister | Reviewer: Stephanie | 12/22/11

I honestly just heard this song for the first time today and it broke my heart. I am 27 years old and lost my sister almost 9 1/2 years ago, when she was only 27, from Cervical cancer. I am now an only child and that her death is something that I deal with everyday. I am also getting married next year and still have no idea how I'm going to go through with it without her. I miss her more than words could say and my heart will always belong to her.

sisters...best friends | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/14/11

this song touches my soul. my only sibling and sister and i were best friends...soulmates. she died 12 years ago when she was only 25. i miss her every day and long for the day we can embrace once again in Heaven. cherish your siblings. love them with your whole heart.

My sister | Reviewer: Tj | 1/15/11

My sister is 22 years old, while I am only 18. This is her absolutely favorite song. I have many memories going to dmb concerts with her. My sister has been battling an addiction to heroin for the past year. In early January of 2011 she had an overdose and passed away. I have had this song on repeat ever since.


My Sister is Passing | Reviewer: Dave Michael Panasiuk | 11/19/10

This song is so remarkable and meaningful when you can't find the words to say. My sister, 56, her name is Dorothy, is dying of Cancer. Spending time with her during her last days has made me so aware of how often we need to say things that we put off. This song, the lyrics and tone have helped me to tell her how much meaning she has had in my life. Thank you Dave Matthews for giving this song for all to enjoy.

Sister I remember from 1935 | Reviewer: Dick Martin | 7/28/10

My sister died in 1935. She was only 6 or 7 weeks old. I was 3. Back then it was custom to bring the child's body to the home for viewing. I remember her in her casket and dressed in a pink dress. My mother was crying and I didn't really know what to make of it all. But through the years my thoughts return to her and I often wonder what she would have been like. "Sister" really saddens me but in a good way....to remember her. I love you Paula and hope someday to see you again.

My sister | Reviewer: Jodi | 5/9/10

My sister sent me this song on Mothers Day and it just made me cry so much. We are best friends and she lost her 10 year old daughter in a 4 wheeler accident 3 years ago. I don't know what I would do without her and I'm so happy I was there for during her roughest of times when no one else was there. Thank you Dave for making a song that fits so perfect for sisters.

Wow... | Reviewer: Dariyn | 4/20/10

I have one full brother, 6 half siblings, and two other children might also be my siblings. Out of all of those kids, I only have one sister, and she's the only one I need. I love her more than anything. ♥

So far yet so close | Reviewer: Melissa b | 11/18/09

I'm going through a tough time right now. My brother who is five years younger is away at school. We are super close so it's hard for us both. One day I got an email from him that said 'was just thinking about u, thought u might like this' and th attachment was this song. I cried through the whole thing. After I listened to it over and over I sent him a text tellin him I could put it on repeat and he said 'i do all the time'. In the simple sentnce I knew he was missing me as much as I do him.

my sister and I have been in kind of a bad row these past couple of months.. when I heard this song i immediately knew that we had to make our relationship better when I saw her I played the song for her and we embraced in a tearful hug.. thanks dave :)

Makes me wish I had siblings... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/5/09

I just heard this song for the first time and it broke my heart. I'm an only child and can only wonder what it must be like to have this kind of relationship. Count yourself very blessed if you have one of these special relationships...

unique | Reviewer: Pacidan | 6/2/09

It is unique to have a song about sibling relationships in modern music. DMB is a unique band, maybe one of the few that would think to do it. It's a nice song, and obviously relateable to millions of people.

sister | Reviewer: Marmie | 6/3/09

I have a son - 29, a daughter - 26, and I am 48.
We have been fans of DMB since the beginning and will be forever fans. While watching Dave sing "sister" Monday night on DMB live at the Beacon, my soul was stirred. My sister died in February after a 2 1/2 year fight with a horrible rare desease. My sister was my keeper. Dave said that he and his sister felt their hearts had been exchanged for each other's. My sister and I shared the same feeling. I feel her beating in my heart.

Love this song! | Reviewer: Bonnie | 3/5/09

My brother played this song at his wedding and we had a special dance...i thought i would die then and there-i am so close to my brothers, and a lot of times sisters and brothers feelings don't get expressed. I had been through a lot in the weeks before the wedding and almost didn't make it...him playing this song and taking that 3 minutes to be just with me was fantastic. Dave nailed us on the head. Love it!
