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 Public Forum for Discussion Same here. At least childhood, wonder, and creativity.

So look see the days
The endless coloured ways
Go play the game that you learnt

From the morning

If anything, the song also entails thoughts on reincarnation, and rebirth (we rise, we are everywhere from the ground).



Jacob Freidman, that is some fucking interpretation you arrived at. Then again, you have some company here as well. To each his own, but killing himself is the last thing that his lyrics tell me here.

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 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.

i think what i love so much about it is that its not really either. same with all of drakes music, its acknowledging and depressive but in that theres this constant sense of progression and movement and comfort and,,, idk. on all of pink moon he has such a whispery tone and its such a stripped back album instrumentally, so much grace regardless of all his tire. i think maybe it got hard for him and maybe sometimes it also gets hard for us to tell happiness and sadness apart but that life can also just be both at the same time. maybe it always is? i dont know. i just know his music always gives me this really overwhelming euphoric comfort and clarity with life that i never get anywhere else, and i really wish i could tell him that

For me it's how he is living life thorugh the grave. It may be the saddest song from the record in my opinion. He has come to terms with death. He does'nt want to play the game (life) as his fellow humans. But drawing conclusions of what the artist meant is just meaningless and pointless

Carl Leiviska

This debate is exactly what Bob Dylan avoided. He told anyone who asked what his songs meant, they mean what they want you to mean. That's art in it's purest form. Listen to this when your happy, as well as down. Notice the different messages you pick up on. That's the purpose of this. Regardless enjoy the beauty of this track from an artist who is no longer with us. Go in peace my fellow humans ❤️

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”.

@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.

I get my kicks on channel six

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.
