Maisie Peters – Cate’s Brother (Matt’s Version) Lyrics

​Cate’s Brother (Matt’s Version) Lyrics – ​Maisie Peters

Mm, mm-hmm, mm
Mm-hmm, mm
Mm

I threw this Halloween party
And I invited forty of my best friends
Cate and Tommy showed up
I got them 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?”
“And are we gonna make it, gonna break it
When it’s now or never?”
“And 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?
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm
Mm-hmm, mm, mm-mm
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm

October ended like this, you was dressed like a witch
We were dressed in the nineties/90’s
Eyes like lake Michigan, yeah, warmer than the sun
So blue, they could kill me
Half the time she talks like a stand-up show
She could hold you in her palm like a lawyer
Grabbed your hand in the dark and I pull you to the car
And the speakers play Destroyer

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 we gonna work, we gonna hurt
We 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?

(Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
Will we ever get together?
(Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
We’d be perfect for each other
(Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)
Will we ever get together?
(Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh-oh)

And Cate’s brother said
“I won’t drag it out
I’ve got it now, life’s half a life without her
I said, “How can I know he’s for sure?
It’s only been a winter”
I said, “Get a flight to Canada
And maybe stay the summer”
That’s when I became his only girl
And now I date Cate’s brother
