Lyrics to When Will I Ever Learn

Lyrics to “When Will I Ever Learn” When Will I Ever Learn?

The sun was setting over Avalon
The last time we stood in the west,
Suffering long time angels enraptured by Blake.
Burn out the dross,
Innoncence captured again;
Standing on the beach at sunset
And all the boats keep moving slow,
In the glory of the flashing light,
In the evenings glow.

When will I ever learn
To live in God?
When will I ever learn?
He gives me everything I need and more.
When will I ever learn?

You brought it to my attention
That everything was made in God.
Down through centuries of great writings and paintings
Everything lives in God.
Seen through architecture of great cathedrals
Down through the history of time
Is and was in the beginning,
And evermore
Shall ever be.

Whatever it takes to fulfill the
Main change was to delete the is mission.
That is the way we must go
But you’ve got to do it your own way;
Tear down the old,
Bring up the new.

And up on the hillside it’s quiet
Where the shepherd is tending his sheep;
And over the mountains and the valleys.
And the countryside is so green.
Standing on the highest hill with a sense of wonder,
You can see everything is made in God.
Head back down the roadside
And give thanks for it all.

Music and Lyrics by Van Morrison
