Elbow - Dear Friends Lyrics




Dear friends
You are angels and drunks
You are Maji

Old friends
You stuck a pin in the map I was in
And this is a note from the roadside

Cutting the breeze in this Tennessee sundown
Came the sound of the voices I know
I've been pondering trees
On the steeliest comedown
And now in moment I'm home

I've got bluster enough
For the sails of a clipper
And the truth never frays a good yarn
But it struck me to say while so far away
You were with me today
You are here in my head
In my heart

Dear friends
You are angels and drunks
You are Maji

Old friends
You stuck a pin in the map I was in
And you are the stars I navigate home by

    This song reminds me of all the friends I love and the friends I have lost and somehow manages to condense all that ennui into one beautiful soundscape. Thanks Mr Garvey. The voice of an Angel.

    This is perhaps the most beautiful song I have ever heard. I can't listen to it without weeping like child. I'm a writer, and I aspire to someday create something this honest and moving,.
