I Forgot That Love Existed

This song arose in my mind as I was talking with my dear friend Lisa today.

Many thanks to Van Morrison for his wisdom.

I forgot that love existed troubled in my mind.
Heartache after heartache, worried all the time.
I forgot that love existed
Then I saw the light
Everyone around me make everything alright.

Oh, oh socrates and plato they
Praised it to the skies.
Anyone whos ever loved
Everyone whos ever tried.

If my heart could do my thinking
And my head begin to feel
I would look upon the world anew
And know whats truly real.

I tried to listen to this after I read your post last month. The lyrics are great...but for some reason I did not like the music. I listened to it again this week and I am totally hooked. The instrumental breaks!!

Van's the man. Van is my guru. And this album is a masterpiece. I'm glad to know you are enjoying it.
Be well,

I downloaded only the one song from the live recording "One Night in San Francisco" Amazing extended instrumental portions!
I will keep my eyes open for the out of print studio recording so I can hear the other songs.

You can listen to the whole thing via music (you may need to register). I listen to a lot of music on youtube, as well. I'll look at an artist's discography and the play all the songs from a particular album. Myspace, though, often will supply all the songs from an album.

What kind of music do you listen to?
