Maisie Peters – Cate’s Brother Lyrics

Maisie Peters – Cate’s Brother Lyrics

I threw this Halloween party and I invited forty of my best friends
Cate and Tommy showed up, I got ’em a drink, said “How was your weekend?”
That’s when I first heard your name, and saying it tastes like violets, rum and summer
Cate had had family stay from Canada — “Maisie, did you meet my brother?”

And then I said “No, I didn’t”
And then he started coming over
And my heart went “Love him, he’s the one and we shall wed”
And then my head said

“Are you gonna work, you gonna hurt, you gonna last forever?
Are we gonna make it, gonna break it when it’s now or never?
If it’s gonna hurt, will it be worth it? And will I recover?
Are you gonna feel the way I feel? Are you for real, Cate’s brother?”

He has these eyes so blue, he’s six foot two and a little younger than me
We go on cinema dates with Tommy and Cate, true love in 3D
He’s fun and weird and smart, likes cheap cigars and can shotgun a beer like no other
Grabbed his hand in the dark, and I pull him to the car, and the speakers play Nirvana

And we pull up to the front door
And now I’m opening the front door
When we started making out, we tripped and fell into my bed
And then my head said

“Are you gonna work, you gonna hurt, you gonna last forever?
Are we gonna make it, gonna break it when it’s now or never?
If it’s gonna hurt, will it be worth it? And will I recover?
Are you gonna feel the way I feel? Are you for real, Cate’s brother?”

Will we ever get together?
We’d be perfect for each other
Will we ever get together?
And Cate’s brother said

“I won’t let you down or lead you on, no, I’m not like the others”
I said “How can I know you’re for sure? It’s only been a summer”
You said “Get a flight to Canada, and you can meet my mother”
That’s when I became his only girl and now I date Cate’s brother

Cate’s brother
