Lit Up Inside contains the lyrics of about one third of the songs that Van Morrison has written over his 50 year career.
In this representative selection from the work of one of the most innovative and enduring songwriters of the last century, the reader will find examples of all the features of the world that Van has created through his work: the back streets and mystic avenues; memories of childhood wonder and of adult work; the chime of church bells and the playing of the radio; the generous naming of other artists and the joy of solitude; love and sharp dealing; consolation and grace.
Lit Up Inside, edited by Van Morrison and Eamonn Hughes. Introduction by Eamonn Hughes. Foreword by Ian Rankin.
