Keep 'Er Lit : New Selected Lyrics
Van Morrison - Book - by Van Morrison
Lit is the second volume of Van Morrison's collected lyrics containing
one hundred and twenty songs from across his storied career. It contains
love songs, work songs, songs about the pains and anxieties of
existence, songs of consolation, songs about various kinds of spiritual
quest and the realms of the mystical, and songs which deal with healing
and reconciliation, both with the self and with others.
Then there are the songs of memory and of childhood; songs about the natural world and about the perspectives it can provide on time. Taken together with Lit Up Inside, this volume gives an overview of his fifty-year career, revealing why he is celebrated as one of the most innovative and enduring songwriters of our time.
