And it will eat you alive;
Me, I’m no stranger to the law
You know I won’t abide…
I could have been easier on you,
I should have been a little bit easier on you.
O, do you want my bones between your teeth?
they pulled me half-alive out of the sea
and dancing on
I feel as if I’ve been where you have been
For if I had a boat I would sail to you; hold you in my arms, ask you to be true.
I’ve caught seven foxes and placed them on the river bank; each night I give him one…
One of my favourite-ever songs: Van Morrison - T. B. Sheets.
I remember the first time I heard it and I just remember being overwhelmed with absolute joy. Cheesy, but completely true. It’s such a feel-good hypnotic song; one of his oldest and one of his best.
And the sunlight shining through the crack in the window pane; numbs my brain, oh Lord. So open up the window and let me breathe, I said, open up the window and let me breathe… I’m looking down to the street below; Lord, I cried for you, I cried, Oh, Lord.
