(Van Morrison)
I can hear the sound of violins
I can hear the piper play
And every time the song begins
You just steal my heart away
The journey's longer than
I thought my love
There's lots of things
Get in the way
But every time I think of you
You just steal my heart away
Just like a morning
In May like this
See the heather on the hill
There's a place way up
The mountainside
Where the world
Keeps standing still
Just like the sunshine after rain
I'll come
To be with you will save the day
'Cos I know
When I'm with you again
You just steal my heart away
Just like a morning
In May like this
We see the heather on the hill
There's a place up on
The mountainside
Where the world is
Standing still
Just like the sunshine after rain I'll come
To be with you will save the day 'cos I know
When I'm with you again
You just steal my heart away
'Cos I know
When I m with you again
You just steal my heart away
'Cos I know
When I'm with you again
You just steal my heart away
'Cos I know
When I'm with you again
You just steal my heart away

    I chose this song to be played at the graveside following my husband's funeral. It was the perfect blend of melody and lyrics. I felt like I was singing this song, in my mind they became my final words to him, telling him that when I see him again after life's long journey, when I come to the place up on the mountain side he'll still steal my heart away. I love Van Morrison's soulful songs (and the lively ones like Marie's Wedding) but these lyrics are awesome and expressed my feelings exactly. The melody was just right, not melancholy, but gentle and tender. Thanks Van you're a songwriter for all life's seasons.
