Sweet Thing
Van Morrison Lyrics

And I will stroll the merry way
And jump the hedges first
And I will drink the clear
Clean water for to quench my thirst
And I shall watch the ferry-boats
And they'll get high
On a bluer ocean
Against tomorrow's sky
And I will never grow so old again
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain

Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my sweet thing
And I shall drive my chariot
Down your streets and cry
Hey, it's me, I'm dynamite
And I don't know why'
And you shall take me strongly
In your arms again
And I will not remember
That I even felt the pain.
We shall walk and talk
In gardens all misty and wet with rain
And I will never, never, never
Grow so old again.

Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my sweet thing
And I will raise my hand up
Into the night time sky
And count the stars
That's shining in your eye
Just to dig it all an' not to wonder
That's just fine
And I'll be satisfied
Not to read in between the lines
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain
And I will never, ever, ever, ever
Grow so old again.
Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
Sugar-baby with your champagne eyes
And your saint-like smile

Easily one of the greatest songs ever crafted. Pure bliss. One of the greatest expressions of love I've ever witnessed

Yes, what he said..


This was my brother and sis-in-law's wedding song in 1997.

They're still going strong! (2020)

My boyfriend passed away this summer. Some of my fondest memories were staying up late listening to this song, amongst others with him. Makes me so sad hearing "never grow so old again". Just heartbroken.


Love has a sweet price. Those of us who know Christ will dwell surrounded by immense love for all of eternity. Those who oppose Christ will be shut out, without any hope of redemption in a place where no love exists. And this life, a time so short that it's like a single breath is the test : The choice: the chance. Imagine trading eternity in hell for worldly riches. 32,000 children will die today of starvation on a planet with the resources to care for everyone. While a mere 26 people own more than the bottom 3.8 million. They love 💰 money and couldn't care less about the 32,000 or us. I hope your boyfriend is in The Good Place and that you're reunited in a place where there is no time.
