Van Morrison Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Put on your lipstick
Apply your makeup
Sometimes you be living, living in a dream
And then, then, then you go steppin' out queen, alright

Well you go to a party
And you laugh loud and hearty
And you stay all night long
Oh you know you make the scene, and then
You go steppin' out queen, steppin' out

It's just a windfall, just a windfall away
It keeps getting stronger every day
Baby you gotta look out and say
It's just a windfall away, do do do do, alright

Ooo it's just a windfall away
It's a love, it's a love, it's a love
Keeps getting stronger every day
Oh you gotta look up and say
It's a windfall away, it's just a windfall

Well you go through the drama
And you work in the dharma
Then you stand up, stand up and wipe, wipe your mirror clean
As you go steppin' out queen, steppin' out, yeah

It's just a windfall away
It's a love, keeps getting stronger every day
It's a windfall away
It's a love, it's a love, it's a love, it's a love, it's a love
I'll come in your garden and then we'll go
Steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out,




Steppin' out, steppin' out,
Steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out, steppin' out,
