Track Name: Best Of All
Best of all if you wait for night
Watch the clock and the doors till it feels all right
I'll be yours for the taking if I hold my tongue
Or all this wasted if you never come

Stripping off in my dark front yard
Choke off to silence as you hold your cards
In your pale left hand, you stretch your right
to take my arm and you squeeze it tight.

Best of all I wait for you
Tearing down the holy ground between me and you
Call it sin or call it right
My mind in the bible and my body by your side.

Best of all if you never come
The candle light burns but the hand is numb
But if the wind moans long and blows you here today
I'll grip your hips and dance in a pious sway.

Best of all I will hold this sin
Clutch it as the world turns again and again
Well, who am I (my dear) to let you down
A boy at the dead end of this cornfield town.
