Lost my wallet password but still have the address and private key my brother gave me years ago. Is there anything I can do?

A few years ago my brother gave me some bitcoin using an address and a private key. I set up a wallet when I got it, but over the time since I got it I've moved several times and have lost the password and the 12 word recovery code. I still have the address and key my brother originally sent me. Is there anything I can do with what I have available to restore my bitcoin? Edit: You might have to ELI5 your responses as I'm in this situation because I didn't fully understand at the time what this was when I got it. Edit Edit: Thanks for the help. I tried sweeping the key I have an it has no funds. So I think I'm gonna say my search is complete and bore no fruit.
