Most of All

Pelican

  1. Most of All

Most of all I’d like to be sat on your porch
With your big coat wrapped round me tight
Most of all I’d like to be laughing with you
At the stars in the starless night

But words spoke and misunderstood
Left you alone In the middle of the woods
Crows grew mean and the trees grew tall
Now I can’t find what I need most of all

Most of all I’d like to be rolling along
On that late northbound train
I would lean my back up against you
As every village flew past the window pane

But plates shifted and times changed
I never made it on board that train
Wheels screeched off out of the sprawl
And carried away what I need most of all

So I stand tall and cold of bone
With these visions in my mind
There’s a porch, a train, a wood
And a love that never ran on time

But the woods come alive when the sun goes down
And the opal moon runs over the ground
Let the trees bend and crows call
I’m going to find what I need most of all
I’m going to find what I need most of all
