Come Running (2:31)

Cover of Moondance

From Moondance and 4 other releases

“Come Running” is a song written by singer-songwriter Van Morrison and included on his 1970 album Moondance. Morrison described it as “a very light type of song. It’s not too heavy. It’s just a happy-go-lucky song. There are no messages or anything like that.” Brian Hinton felt that it was more complicated than that. “The imagery is just like that at the end of “Madame George”, a train passing, wind and rain… an image of implacable nature against which human life and death play out their little games. Van and his lover ‘dream that it will never end’ while knowing that of course it will. Even the injunction to ‘put away all your walking shoes’ has a temporary sound to it.”

“The single, with lower rung chart success, hardly accounts for the immediate acceptance of Moondance, from young adult listeners.” The song was also the only song to survive the Astral Weeks demos for Warner Bros. in 1968.

Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
