Brown Eyed Girl
Van Morrison Lyrics


Hey, where did we go?
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin' a new game
Laughing and a running hey, hey
Skipping and a jumping
In the misty morning fog with
Our hearts a thumpin' and you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow?
Going down the old mine
With a transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hiding behind a rainbow's wall
Slipping and sliding
All along the waterfall, with you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
Just like that
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da

So hard to find my way
Now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day
My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinking 'bout
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you
My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
(Bit by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit)
(Sha la la la la la la, la te da, la te da
Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da
(La te da, da da da da da da da da)

As someone in her shoes, sort of, she may feel like she is a burden or a danger to you, or ashamed of the power of the drug over her for something she did or didn't do, or feels like she has let you down, and can't face it, or many other possibilities.

But I bet her love for you is still strong. Her love may be the reason she stays apart. Maybe she doesn't want to expose you to the danger of her associates.

She may not be in a financial position to go to you.

Anyway, whatever the situ is, consider going to see her in person, even if only to give her a hug and turn around and go right home.

My mom died and I didn't even know about it until 4 years later. I haven't seen any of them, not even on social media in nearly 20 years now.

I love all of them. I helped raise my younger sibs till they were in grade school.

I'm not financially independent and I don't want to burden them.

I'm not on H or opiates. I have ADD and ADHD and my monthly script of desoxyn without insurance is over $600 a month. I got hurt at my construction job, got my friend pregnant, or she got us pregnant, cuz it wasn't on my list of things to do, got swindled into signing off my work comp claim in trade for a promotion and big salary jump, lost my job, my insurance, my truck, my home, my drivers license due to back child support owed. I became homeless, started using what passes for meth to self medicate my ADD. (Look up desoxyn)

And I just did not want to burden anyone BECAUSE I love them.

I wanted to achieve financial independence, have a home for my son to visit, before I returned.

I worked my ass off day and night scrapping metal and reinvesting that cash into new warranty returns and fixing them and reselling them. I built up an inventory of nearly $200K, but they took my DL and it crippled me. I lost it all again.

I don't know. You should go to her if you can. Heroin is a bitch that don't want to let go. I've seen it. But those same people are in recovery with script meds and are at least safe from the danger of the street.

On the other hand, you may be a narcissistic bitch that she never wants to see again.

I should just worry about my thing, not yours.

I'll tell you what I've learned the hard way, then dip.

We have differences with loved ones, and go our separate ways out of foolish pride or shame or anger.

She owes me an apology. He hurt my feelings. They owe me too much money. Etc.

Maybe I'll call them tomorrow and tell them I'm sorry and I love them.

We think there is time, and some day we will see each other, hug and cry, forgive and laugh.

Time disappears while we are busy living our lives. 15 years slips away and disappears in a blink.

Sometimes tomorrow never comes.

Your mom dies without you, her first born, there holding her hand, where you should have been.

You never got to hug her again, or tell her you're sorry, or ask her to forgive, or tell her you forgive her.

All that time is just gone.
And you can't ever get it back.

No redo. No second chance.

Sometimes tomorrow never comes.

Hey, where did we go?
Days when the rains came
Down in the hollow
Playin' a new game
Laughin' and a-runnin', hey, hey
Skippin' and a-jumpin'
In the misty morning fog with
Our, our hearts a-thumping and you

My brown-eyed girl
And you, my brown-eyed girl

And whatever happened
To Tuesday and so slow?
Going down the old mine with a
Transistor radio
Standing in the sunlight laughing
Hiding 'hind a rainbow's wall
Slipping and sliding
All along the waterfall with you

My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing?
Sha-la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la tee-da
Just like that
Sha-la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la tee-da, la-tee-da

So hard to find my way
Now that I'm all on my own
I saw you just the other day
My, how you have grown
Cast my memory back there, Lord
Sometimes I'm overcome thinking 'bout it
Making love in the green grass
Behind the stadium with you

My brown-eyed girl
You, my brown-eyed girl

Do you remember when we used to sing?
Sha-la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la tee-da
Sha-la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la, la-la tee-da

My husband used to sing this song to me all the time when we were dating. Then alot after we were married too. Every year on my birthday. He passed away three months ago and my birthday is tomorrow. It will be the first birthday I won't hear him sing this song to me . I was 16 when he first started and I'll be 54 tomorrow. I keep listening to it now just to remember him. I miss him so much.

Donna Nichols

Your the best lady.

Laul Louise

I’m so so sorry I’ll start to singing it for you

Kevin Pence

Sorry for your loss. You will reunite one day. He's waiting for his brown eyed girl...

Karen Starnes

My husband made this song special to me also because of my own brown eyes. He made it his ringtone on his phone, and like you - I lost him last May of 2021, when an almost lethally impaired driver chose to drive on the wrong side of the interstate and hit us head on after the trucks in front of us swerved to the side. My heart goes out to you, as I know yours does to mine if ever you see this.♥
