Van Morrison - Bright Side Of The Road Lyrics




From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road
We'll be lovers once again on the
Bright side of the road

Little darlin', come with me
Won't you help me share my load
From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road

Into this life we're born
Baby sometimes we don't know why
And time seems to go by so fast
In the twinkling of an eye

Let's enjoy it while we can
Won't you help me sing my song
From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road

From the dark end of the street
To the bright side of the road
We'll be lovers once again
On the bright side of the road
We'll be lovers once again on the bright side of the road

  41. pv032

    As part of my job working for the State Government's Audit Office, I used to visit clients in many country towns spread out far and wide across the state of New South Wales (Australia). Even though most of the state was and still is going through a very harsh drought, which is literally killing off the livelihood of farmers and in some cases the farmers themselves, I still found the people living out in these towns (like Leeton, Cobar and Hillston) to be extremely tough and resilient.
    My point is they can't be survivors without looking out "on the bright side of the road" - so when I hear this song, it reminds me of them.

  42. Pandora

    I would dance with Jean Stapleton to this one.

  43. Alan Devereaux

    Michael MacDonald
