"Queen Of The Slipstream" as written by and Van Morrison....
You're the queen of the slipstream
With eyes that shine
You have crossed many waters to be here
You have drank of the fountain of innocence
And experienced the long cold wintry years

There's a dream where the contents are visible
Where the poetic champions compose
Will you breathe not a word of this secrecy
Will you still be my special rose?

Goin' away far across the sea
But I'll be back for you
I'm gonna tell you everything I know
Baby, everything is true

Will the blush still remain
On your cheeks, my love?
Is the light, is the light always seen in your hair?
Gold and sliver they placed
At your feet, my dear
But I know you chose me instead

All right

Well, I'm goin' away far across the sea
But I'll be back for you
Tell you everything I know
Baby, everything is true

You're the queen of the slipstream
I love you so
You have crossed many waters to be here
And you drank, and you drank at the fountains of innocence
And experienced, you know very well

You're the queen (you're the queen), queen of the slipstream (queen of the slipstream)
Yeah, yeah, queen of the slipstream (you're the queen)
I seen you slippin' and slidin' in the snow (you're the queen)
Oh, queen of the slipstream (you're the queen)
You come running to me, darling (you're the queen)
Queen of the slipstream (you're the queen)
(You're the queen)
(You're the queen)

    General CommentVan has a talent for romantic words.
    It's almost like he's saying he sees
    a purity and depth in this woman
    He clearly loves and cherishes
    He draws inspiration from her and
    It is definitely too special to break
    He's reassuring her that he'll return

    Re Slipstream

    It happen to be the current of air that keeps an airplane afloat

    So she keeps him high as in a good state of mind

    Now you know why you like it besides all the other nice words

    General CommentOh my... you all no nothing about Van, this song is about his struggle with alcohol. The "slip stream" is what you slip on and end up back on the horse. It's NOT about love, it's about alcohol which makes it that much more beautiful because it's real and not some record company BS

    General CommentBabies, so many masterpieces a open for interpretation.
    Slipstream is a region behind a moving object in which a wake of fluid is moving at velocities comparable to the moving object.

    To Me this song is a metaphor for the sea, a ship, a woman that moves in rhythm with a lover. home.

    What should be important is what it means to you.

    General Commentour guardian angel is talking to us:
    "You're the queen/king of the [my] slipstream
    With eyes that shine
    You have crossed many waters to be here
    [you have many incarnations to arrive at this one]
    You have drank of the fountain of innocence
    [you have had to relearn the basics each time]
    And experienced the long cold wintry years
    [ and had to learn by the tried and trusted way of trial and error]
