Listen to the Lion
Van Morrison Lyrics


And all my love come down
All my love come tumblin' down
All my love come tumblin' down
All my love come tumblin' down
Oh, listen listen
To the lion
Oh, listen listen listen
To the lion
Inside of me
Oh, oh, oh

And I shall search my soul
I shall search my very soul
And I shall search my very soul
I shall search my very soul

For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
Inside of me
Oh, oh, yeah

And all my tears have flown
All my tears like water flown
And all my tears like water flown
All my tears like a water flown

For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
For the lion
Inside of me

Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion
Listen to the lion

And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
sailed to Caledonia

And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
Away from Denmark
Way up to Caledonia
Away from Denmark
Way up to Caledonia

And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
All around the world
And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
Looking for a brand new start

And we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed
All around the world, a brand new start

Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start

And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed
Away from the Golden Gate
Way up to the New York City

And we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed, and we sailed

All around the world, a brand new start

Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start
Looking for a brand new start

And we sailed, and we sailed, and we sailed
And we sailed
Away from the Golden Gate
Way up to the New York City

Hi Andrew! A huge Amen!! I see the photos in the same way. Each face tells a story. No words are needed.
People finding that courage within ( the lion)
I adore Van Morrison. ❤
He, his music i(which imho is one and the same) is embedded in my very soul. Whenever I need to re-charge, find my center, need inspiration... so many things
"Van the Man" ...his music, poetry, prose is almost always who I turn to.
What a storyteller! His lyrics, music are captivating. Empowering. Emotional. Healing & Fun! ( think "The Best of Van Morrison") with: "Cleaning Windows" & " Bright Side of the Road" " Gloria"!
And then there's the "other side of the scale" with, "Poets Champion Compose"...."Celtic Excavation"...WOW! The most gorgeous instrumental ever.
And, "The Garden" just takes me away, I flow into it. I've actually choreographed dance, to much of his music throughout the years.
His music, lyrics takes us to such ethereal places, for example, "Hymns to the Silence," I just move with the music. I dance, to merge with the music and we (the music & the dancing) become as one. I hope I'm making sense lol
It's also a form of meditation for me.
Quite a beautiful experience of expression, release and surrender.
Two art forms, merging...this is a huge part of what dance is to me.. ( this is my personal opinion based on my own experiences)
Your soul "becomes" (again, merges and transforms) the music, through dance. And vice versa. "True" Dancers understand, experience this.
I used to dance Ballet, (en Pointe), which is an Art form of story telling, as is music. Pure expression. Through music and movement. Van's music is especially amazing for dance!
Many forms of it. Greatly varied in style.
Sorry!,...got off track there! 😍
I'm so grateful for music, in general and all genres.
Van takes us, on many types of journeys, moods and can transform us. Music, especially the music of Van, enriches our lives. And at the core of it all, is love. It all comes from the heart, the soul. That love unites us, through the music and dance art forms.
Love unites us. Love saves us.
Just as music does.
Music is a healer. Medicine. Love.
Thank you.
With gratitude and love.
Please stay safe and be well.
Thank God, for music.

I have to laugh at myself. I am seventy-two now, but as a young man, I used to sing along with this song. I remembered all the words to the song. I am sure my neighbors didn't appreciate my singing.

You are a blessing

Matty

Your age doesn't matter. Your heart does.

Mark DiSciullo

It's 2021, and this song is still relevant and I'm quite a bit younger than you. You are fan of and artist who produces timeless music, which will keep us both forever young! Van Morrison is just so incredibly prolific.
