Sister Europe Lyrics


Stupid on the steinway
So sick upon a steinway
The sailors drown
See them talk and see them drown
And see them drink and fall around
Upon the floor
Sister of mine, home again
Sister of mine, home again
Lonely in a crowded room
The radio plays out of tune
So silently
The radio upon the floor
Is stupid it plays aznavour
So out of key
Sister of mine
Home again
Sister of mine
Home again
Broken on a ship of fools
Even dreams must fall to rules
So stupidly
Words are all just useless sound
Just like cards they fall around
And we will be
Sister of mine
Home again
Sister of mine
Home again
Buy a car and watch it rust
Sister see them fall to dust
They fall around
In another crowded room
Paint me like the shirt I'm in
Honestly
Sister of mine
Home again
Sister of mine
Home again
Sister of mine
Sister of mine
Sister of mine
Sister of mine
Sister

Sister Europe
  • Richard Butler, the band's frontman and co-songwriter, wrote the lyrics to this song about a specific person who left for Europe. "It's basically about my girlfriend, who I've been going out with for years," he said at the time. "She's in Italy at the moment."

    Butler cloaked his feelings of loneliness and desperation in metaphor, using images to express his thoughts. He wrote the lyrics, but the entire band got composition credit on the song.
  • The band's producer Steve Lillywhite knew just how to infuse Butler's vocals with enough raw emotion to sell the song. Butler recalled Lillywhite's instructions: "he told me, 'go down the pub, have a couple of beers, and when you come back, I want you to sing like it's three in the morning, and you're talking on the telephone to someone.'"
  • This song was a popular opener for the band's live shows and also inspired several covers. Tenor saxophonist Gary Windo (who also contributed horns to the Furs' Forever Now album) emphasized its Jazz feel on his 1985 album Deep Water and, a decade later, Australian Rock band Icehouse covered it for their album The Berlin Tapes. The Foo Fighters also included it at as the B-side of their "All My Life" single in 2002.
