"And The Healing Has Begun" as written by and Van Morrison....
And we'll walk down the avenue again
And we'll sing all the songs from way back when
And we'll walk down the avenue again and the healing has begun

And we'll walk down the avenue in style
And we'll walk down the avenue and we'll smile
And we'll say "baby, ain't it all worthwhile?" when the healing has begun

I want you to put on your pretty summer dress
You can wear your Easter bonnet and all the rest
And I want to make love to you yes, yes, yes, when the healing has begun

Louder, when the healing has begun
So good
Whoo
All right, whoo
Yeah
Aah
Whoo

When you hear the music ringin' in your soul
And you feel it in your heart and it grows and grows
And it came from the backstreet rock and roll and the healing has begun
That's where we come from, man
I want you to put on your old summer red dress
Put on your Easter bonnet and all the rest
And I want to make love to you yes, yes and the healing has begun, ow

I can't stand myself
We're gonna make music underneath the stars
We're gonna play to the violin and the two guitars
And we'll sit there for playing in our for hours and hours and hours and hours
And hours and hours and hours and hours, when the healing has begun
And hours and hours and hours and hours, when the healing has begun

Wait a minute, wait
Listen, listen, listen
Listen, I didn't know you stayed up so late
I want you to know I just got home from a, from a gig
And I saw you standing on the street
Just let me move on up here to this windowsill a little bit, here
Yeah, I got some sherry
A drop of port
Yeah, I want you to come on in behind, behind this door here
Oh, let's just move on up this, this letter-box
Why don't we just go up in your front room?
Let's just sit down and take tea
I'll just move over there a little bit now
Yeah, I'm gonna play this Muddy Waters record you got there
Oh, if you just open up a little bit
And let me come on in one some backstreet jellyroll

We're gonna stay out all night long
And then we're gonna go out and roam across the field
Baby you know how I feel when the healing has begun

When the healing, when the healing has begun
When the healing, when the healing has begun
We're gonna dance, we're gonna stay out all night long
We're gonna dance to the rock and roll
When the healing when the healing has begun
Has begun
Now you just
Let me ease on a little bit
Well, dig this
Backstreet jellyroll
When the healing, when the healing has begun
Yeah, when the healing has begun, and the healing, and the healing

    General CommentI can't believe noone else has written a comment on this yet.
    I think this is the most amazing song...
    weirdly it reminds me of when my ex broke up with me. I was working in this trendy cafe in Glasgow which was always empty and i hadnt seen my boyfriend for over a wk. I used to be there by myself, just thinking about stuff (why hadn't i heard from him mostly) and listening to the one decent album in there which was Van Morrison. ..eventually my boyfriend finally dropped by,and dumped me, in the cafe. And as he walked out the door this song came on and it just totally fit. I liked him so so much it hurt so bad.but he was in a band, had just started uni & wanted to go out and meet new people and i guess i suddenly didnt fit into his new life anymore. All I ever wanted to do was be with him, and do all the stuff it says in the song with him..so i guess the song reminds me of him, the git I'll always have feelings for. Apparently he really regretted it later..but hey, life goes on.

    General CommentThis song is so sweet. It's something I wish I could say to girls. Raw emotion, you know? It's truly a great song of rock and roll, by a great artist of rock and roll, Van the Man.
