Time Has Told Me
Nick Drake Lyrics


Time has told me
You're a rare, rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
Someday our ocean
Will find its shore

So I'll leave the ways that are making me be
What I really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don't want to love

Time has told me
You came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint
A rose with no thorn

Your tears they tell me
There's really no way
Of ending your troubles
With things you can say

And time will tell you
To stay by my side
To keep on trying
'Til there's no more to hide

So leave the ways that are making you be
What you really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making you love
What you really don't want to love

Time has told me
You're a rare, rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
So someday our ocean
Will find its shore

So I'll leave the ways that are making me be
What I really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don't want to love.

You came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint
A rose with no thorn.
Your tears they tell me

You're a rare, rare find

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
Someday our ocean

So I'll leave the ways that are making me be
What I really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don't want to love



Time has told me
You came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint
A rose with no thorn


Your tears, they tell me
There's really no way
Of ending your troubles
With things you can say

And time will tell you
To stay by my side, oh
To keep on trying
'Til there's no more to hide

As a 67 year old English man who loves the work of John Martyn, why have I only just found Nick Drake today? Just incredible, beautiful music. I guess my misspent youth was really misspent.

its probably because nick didn't do live shows and was a introvert through and through. there is an audio interview with John martyn and he speaks about nick drake on it, the audio is a bit bad but its good all the same.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to this album while at college by a mate called Pierre. Metz, France.

I'm not saying this lightly, but I truly feel that Nick Drake was the greatest folk-rock artist of all time.
