      About "Wonderful Remark"

      Lyrics for Van Morrison - "Wonderful Remark"

      How can you stand the silence
      That pervades when we all cry?
      How can you watch the violence
      That erupts before your eyes?
      How can you tell us something
      Just to keep us hangin' on?
      Something that just don't mean nothing
      When we see it you are gone
      Clinging to some other rainbow
      While we're standing, waiting in the cold
      Telling us the same old story
      Knowing time is growing old.

      That was a wonderful remark
      I had my eyes closed in the dark
      I sighed a million sighs
      I told a million lies, to myself, to myself

      How can we listen to you
      When we know your talk is cheap?
      How can we ever question
      Why we give more and you keep?
      How can your empty laughter
      Fill a room like ours with joy
      When you're only playing with us
      Like a child does with a toy?
      How can we ever feel the freedom
      Or the flame lit by the spark
      How can we ever come out even
      When reality is stark?

      That was a wonderful remark
      I had my eyes closed in the dark, yeah
      I sighed a million sighs
      I told a million lies, to myself, to myself
      Baby to myse - e - e - elf
