Lyrics

MOST OF ALL

Last night was filled with music - sweet harmony
I fell asleep contented as my love lay next to me
And I find it hard to understand why I should feel this way -
Why I should miss you most of all today.

Last night the heavens opened and quenched the aching trees
The sky was split by lightning - bringing cool relief
But in the silence of the morning soft, salty raindrops fall
Because today I find I miss you most of all.

What would I give for just one word or just one touch?
When I've got everything I need
How come I still need you so much?

All the time that you've been gone I've held you near
You've been part of every day - a cheerful voice inside my ear
And I can't escape the feeling you might drift further away -
Maybe that's why I miss you most of all today?

What would I give for just one word or just one touch?
When I've got everything I need
How come I still need you so much?

I'll walk out in the garden where I know you'll always be.
I'll wrap your smile around my heart so no-one else can see
There's a sadness deep inside me that I just can't chase away
And it's because I miss you most of all today -

It's because I miss you
Most of all
Today.
