"All for the Best (Miracle Legion cover)" as written by and Mark Joseph Mulcahy Raymond David Neal....
Waking up and the bed was made
No one looked me in the eye
The more I tried, the more I cried
But it's all for the best

Watch my brother cutting grass outside
Sitting on the porch he told me
It's a long way to go 'fore we can rest
But it's all for the best

You're so beautiful it seems
On a lonely lazy morning
When I see you rocking back and forward
Whispering that it's all for the best

One day the stone will roll away
Soon you'll see
Far away from home but never far away from me
And that's all for the best

Promise me son not to do the things I've done
Walk away from trouble
Promise me son not to do the things I've done
Walk away from trouble

Say you love me, say you love me
Say you love me
Say you love me, say you love me
Say you love me, let's just say you love me

    General Commentcan't get enough of this song.
    it seems to be a collection of semi-random memories. not sure if there is a clear meaning to the lyrics, but the song evokes a unique type of feeling. I guess I would call it regretful-nostalgia.
    great cover, not too familiar with the original.

    General CommentThis is on the new album "Ciao, My Shining Star" which features remakes of Mark Mulcahy's songs as a benefit after the death of his wife Michelle.

    Great song!The reference to "one day the stone will roll away" seems to express the hope that somehow her death isn't final and he'll get to see her again on another level of existence.

    General CommentWhile I do agree with the above "longing for her"/heartache interpretation (that's why it works so well as a Thom Yorke song, I see this theme all over The Eraser), there's more to the song.

    There are also undercurrents of sort of struggling as you hit your 30s, and maybe a pull between doing what you should, and what you dream. (His brother is cutting grass, but he's unsure if that's the life he wants. What exactly is 'all for the best'?)

    I also hear "you're so beautiful it seems"

    Pretty amazing track
