"Avalon Of The Heart" as written by and Van Morrison....
On down by Avalon
Avalon of the heart
On down by Avalon
Gonna make a brand new start

Oh the Holy Grail
Baby behind the sun
Oh the Holy Grail
Down by Avalon

Well I came upon
The enchanted veil
Down by the viaducts of my dreams
Down by Camelot, hangs the tale
In the ancient vale

Oh the Avalon sunset
Avalon of the heart
Me and my lady
Goin' down by Avalon

Well I came upon
The enchanted vale
Down by the viaducts of my dreams
Near Camelot, hangs the tale
Of the enchanted vale

In the upper room
There the cup does stand
In the upper room
Down by Avalon

Goin' down by Avalon
Oh my Avalon of the heart
Goin' down by Avalon
Gonna make a brand new start

Oh down by Avalon
Oh baby behind the sun
Goin' down by Avalon
Well the journey's just begun

Oh down by Avalon
Sweet Avalon of the heart
Goin' down by Avalon
Gonna make a brand new start

    General CommentI thought I would add some factual insights here that might enrich the meaning of this song for you, as well as a few others Morrison wrote along the same theme. In Somerset, England, the hill town of Glastonbury, rising in the Somerset Levels, is legendarily held to be the site of the Sacred Isle of Avalon. There, in the Chalice Well Garden, in the second story of the small stone cottage once owned by the mystic, Wellesly Tudor-Pole, is a tableaux of a vision Tudor-Pole had of the Last Supper, complete with a chalice. You can find out more at the Chalice Well website.

    About 10 miles away, near the hamlets of Queen's Cam and Courton Denhem is Cadbury Castle, a fortified mound, much like Old SArum, which archaeologists have been studying as the possible site of the historic Camelot. You can find more information by checking out 'The Isle of Avalon' website.

    Morrison has written a few lyrics about Somerset and GLastonbury.
