A song Kara wrote in honor of her brother, who took his own life several years ago.


Bothered Brother

What’s wrong? You say, you can’t go on anymore these days.
But why? I ask. You say, you’re not strong enough to last.
And I’d never believe that you could ever do this to me.
You chose to leave, and now I’m left here alone in my grief…

Bothered brother I wish I could see you smile
What brought you to this point of no return?
Bothered brother you should have seen the light
Why’d you let the darkness take you that night?

I still can hear the sound of your laughter loud and clear
Your face, I see, in a crowd of people randomly
And I remember when my life was changed that cold December night
You left me, then sending me and momma over the edge


Still tucked away hidden in my closet is your Cowboys jacket with a pocket full of basics
And momma won’t throw away that letter, so much guilt and heartache in those tear-stained pages….



from California Country, released June 27, 2015
