From the Morning
Drake Lyrics


A day once dawned, and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night, she fell
And the air was beautiful
The night, she fell all around

So look, see the days
The endless colored ways
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning

And now we rise
We are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground
See, she flies
She is everywhere
See, she flies all around

So look, see the sights
The endless summer nights
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning

A day once dawned
And it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell
And the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around

So look see the days
The endless coloured ways
And go play the game that you learnt
From the morning

And now we rise
And we are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground
And see she flies
And she is everywhere
See she flies all around

So look see the sights
The endless summer nights
And go play the game that you learnt

From the morning

I visited his grave site in 2017. There were 2 bikers there as well. We all had tears in our eyes.
The back of the gravestone had the lyrics “ And now we rise, and we are everywhere”.

@Mark Sluman I might just do exactly the same when I'm in the area. It's a bit silly to grieve for works that have never been done, but with him I just can't help it. Gone at just two years older than myself. I can't wrap my head around it.

Visited Nick's grave on my own this morning on my way back from a walking holiday along the River Severn. Then sat on a seat beyond the cemetery, which looked out over the beautiful, sunlit Warwickshire countryside and played this song. Not embarrassed to say I cried. I remembered all the loved ones in my life that are gone - but, like Nick, their memories and their deeds, live on in all of us they have touched. As his gravestone proclaims, "Now we rise, and we are everywhere". How true.

@Mindrolling tamworth in arden, he's buried under a tree. I was working close by to the place and I myself visited to pay my respects.

Visited his graveside back in September 2011. Left a black heartstone and on recent pictures
on the internet i saw it is still there. It was a beautiful and very special day. Will never forget.

I like the fact that the final song on the last album recorded in Nick Drake's lifetime was actually a song of hope and inspiration!

I don't see it as particularly hopeful or sad...the point is that we have this brief time to live, to make of this world what we can...to "go play the game". To borrow from "As You Like It": "All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances." We rise from and fall into an endless sleep, with this brief moment of wakefulness....whether you find this sad or hopeful, that is up to you.
