Got to go back, Van Morrison’s first track on the No Guru, no method, no teacher release. This is a track I listen to when I am immersed in the creative process. This Van release is oft-overlooked and less familiar to some. This album is as full as Astral weeks, birthed of course, from the womb of Astral travel (from the fertile Van mind). You must purchase this CD for your beach and or mountain trips from Durham. No better soundtrack than this for the pastoral drive, sorting laundry, washing dishes.
Can you imagine the world without Van Morrison? No purer expression of God’s grace than his love of the Irish. Who expresses pure bliss better than Van?

When I was a young boy back in Orangefield
Used to look out my classroom window and dream
And go home and listen to Ray say
‘I Believed to My Soul’ after school

Ah, that love that was within me
You know it carried me through
And it lifted me up, it’d filled me
Meditation contemplation too

Got to go back, we’ve got to go back
Got to go back, got to go back
For the healing go on with the dreaming

All these people in the street
And the summer’s almost here
Got to go outside in the fresh air
And walk while it’s still clear

Breathe it in all the way down
To your stomach too
And breathe it out with a radiance
Into the night time air

Got to go back, we’ve got to go back
Got to go back, have you got to go back
For the healing go on with the dreaming

Got my ticket at the airport
Well I guess I’ve been marking time
I’ve been living in another country
That operates along entirely different lines

Keep me away from porter or whiskey
Don’t play anything sentimental, it’ll make me cry
Got to go now my friend
Is there really any need to ask why

I guess we’ve got to go back
Got to go back, people I’ve got to go back
Well we’ve got to go back
For the healing go on with the dreaming

Ah, we’ve got to go back
Baby, we got to go back people, got to go back
Got to go back
For the healing go on with the dreaming, with the dreaming
With the dreaming, with the dreaming, with the dreaming
With the dreaming,
