CARRYING A TORCH

And the healing has begun I'm Confessin'.
Thanks to you I'm back on top.
Beside you it's a brand new day.  
A brown eyed girl on the bright side of the road.

Thanks to you I'm back on top.
I was comfortably numb cleaning windows.
A brown eyed girl on the bright side of the road,
down a cul de sac, carrying a torch of crazy love for you.

I was comfortably numb cleaning windows.
Down by the riverside, thinking everyone knew I was
down a cul de sac, carrying a torch of crazy love for you.
It had hit me like a full force gale.

Down by the riverside, thinking everyone knew I was
on your wavelength because you make me feel so free .
It had hit me like a full force gale.
You've got the power to make me real real gone.

On your wavelength because you make me feel so free.
Beside you it's a brand new day.
You've got the power to make me real real gone.
And the healing has begun I'm confessin'.

Thank you Susan. I am a big fan of Van and I love his Cleaning Windows and Bright Side of the Road. My brother followed in my father's footsteps by opening a music shop in Galway. He called it Bright Side Music. Another fan of Van.

In 1983 I was newly arrived in New Delhi, sitting on a cycle tuk tuk beside my rucksack. I had the "new" Sony Walkman earphones loudly playing Into The Mystic as we moved past holy cows milling among the throng of people in the Old Town. That was the moment I fell in love with Van Vijay.

Excellent Jean, and, as I secretly knew, you have impeccable taste. Viv x

He's top of the bill at an Irish musical festival in Liverpool on July 7th Viv. I am sorely tempted as my brother's band The Stunning also feature. I would have to do some extra shifts to get some BLUE MONEY if I wanna go BOOGIE CHILLIN'.
