"I Forgot That Love Existed" as written by and Van Morrison....
I forgot that love existed troubled in my mind.
Heartache after heartache, worried all the time.
I forgot that love existed
Then I saw the light
Everyone around me make everything alright.

Oh, oh Socrates and Plato they
Praised it to the skies.
Anyone who's ever loved
Everyone who's ever tried.

If my heart could do my thinking
And my head begin to feel
I would look upon the world anew
And know what's truly real.

    General CommentI really like this song. It strangled up my heart. It is a rejection of the physical, hedonistic world in search of spiritual meaning. For everyone who's ever tried.

    General CommentI forgot that love existed troubled in my mind. Heartache after heartache, worried all the time. I forgot that love existed, Then I saw the light, Everyone around me make everything alright. [a stranger's smile]
    Oh, oh Socrates and Plato they, Praised it to the skies.
    [they praise the love of wisdom and wise-love to the skies]
    Anyone who's ever loved [the loveof wisdom]
    Everyone who's ever tried.
    If my heart [the heart of my soul] could do my thinking,
    And my head begin to feel [the universal ] love , I would look upon the world anew
    And know what's truly real.
