When your troubles are a burden let your mind be still
Wait until the clouds start moving way beyond the hill

Can't you see the sky is bluer up upon the ridge
Just don't let the green grass fool you, look beyond the hill

Sometime it don't rhyme, seem to have your fill
Got to get your house in order in line with your will

Tomorrow is another day to go in for the kill
You can have a change of heart now
Look beyond the hill

You've got to look beyond the hill
You've got to look beyond the hill

    General CommentThis is the shortest track on the "Keep Me Singing" latest Van album at 2.28 minutes but I find it quite striking and uplifting. The first half of the song is phased in with a beautiful array of instruments which includes piano, Hammond organ, trumpet, trombone and vibes with a nice jaunty lilt and feel before the lyrics begin.

    There is a positivity throughout as Van expresses emotive encouragement for when your troubles come and of course to look beyond the hill. The song reminds the listener to be patient and not to be deceived with false dawns and ultimately that better days will come. Simple stuff but good advice articulated in true Van style.
