Van Morison - Purple Heather/Los Lobos - Matter of Time

WEDNESDAY CLUB

THE TOWER

AND IN THE DISTANCE

VAN MORRISON - Purple Heather 

(Van's voice at it's very best)

Dedicated to Shellhunter and her new life in foreign lands.

THE TOWER

I had to take the chance
go and search myself
leave behind all that cushy life
say goodbye to all my friends
and all my family
there always comes a time
you have to prove yourself
or I will never be fulfilled
with never a regret
it's easier to stay at home
in the comfort of the ones I love

and I've never felt so all  alone
I want to hold my baby
I  turn around
and in the distance
I can see the Tower


They work you hard
I'm not shy of work
I will show them what I can do
when the work is all done
I will hit the Bar
search deep into my wine
stop my mind playing tricks
stop these thoughts of home
soon get their visa
and husband and my baby
again be in these arms of mine

and I've never felt so all  alone
I want to hold my baby
I  turn around
and in the distance
I always see the Tower


Then into Purple Heather :

'
I will build, my love a tower
By the cool crests of waters
And I'll cling to her forever
Like the ivy to the heather
Will you go, lassie, go
And we'll all go together
To pick, wild mountain thyme
All along the purple heather
Will you go, lassie go
Lassie, go
Will you go, lassie, go'


CONCLUSION


The best news it came
is it just a dream
can I start to live again
be with the ones I love
hold my baby close
the time it has come
I have passed the test
the greatest test of all
with never a regret
I look to the future
in the comfort of the ones I love

and I've never felt so good before
soon to hold my baby
I  turn around
and in the distance
I see the Tower smile
