Pink Moon
Nick Drake Lyrics


Saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get ye all

And it's a pink moon
Hey, it's a pink moon
Pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon
Pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon

I saw it written and I saw it say
A pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get ye all

It's a pink moon
Yeah, it's a pink moon

Nick knew, somehow, through real magic....He really couldn't be anymore direct.

Fruit Tree Lyrics:

Fame is but a fruit tree
So very unsound.
It can never flourish
'Till its stock is in the ground.
So men of fame
Can never find a way
'Till time has flown
Far from their dying day.
Forgotten while you're here
Remembered for a while
A much updated ruin
From a much outdated style.

Life is but a memory
Happened long ago.
Theatre full of sadness
For a long forgotten show.
Seems so easy
Just to let it go on by
'Till you stop and wonder
Why you never wondered why.

Safe in the womb
Of an everlasting night
You find the darkness can
Give the brightest light.
Safe in your place deep in the earth
That's when they'll know what you were really worth.
Forgotten while you're here
Remembered for a while
A much updated ruin
From a much outdated style.

Fame is but a fruit tree
So very unsound.
It can never flourish
'Till its stock is in the ground.
So men of fame
Can never find a way
'Till time has flown
Far from their dying day.

Fruit tree, fruit tree
No one knows you but the rain and the air.
Don't you worry
They'll stand and stare when you're gone.

Fruit tree, fruit tree
Open your eyes to another year.
They'll all know
That you were here when you're gone.

Now ya know. Nick Drake actually knew the future 💥✨💫

Nick Drake is the Vincent Van Gogh of music, he had to die before anyone realized his brilliance.

If Eddie Vedder was trying to record a song without waking his parents

@Nikša You're absolutely right. In the early stages of his career would be the realization that he just wasn't built for the stage and an audience. The crowds would get restless and lose interest with Drake early on with his special tuning of every individual song that took considerably time for him to get right. His handlers had no idea what to do with him after that.

@The- potato-warrior Ok, so after a little bit of googling it seems that it’s generally accepted that the “he only ever sold one painting” thing is a bit of a myth. Seems like he probably sold more than one during his lifetime, but it was still very few. Several of his works were charitably bought by his uncle. Still, it doesn’t change the fact that during his lifetime he wasn’t really recognized as the great talent that he was. Again, there is a difference between being known in a few circles and being considered one of the all time greats.

@Moo that’s not true at all. He sold many portraits at his brothers shop. I legit just went to an exhibit of his and it outlined his entire career…. He was selling paintings that he didn’t even like while living in Paris* he found the city life exhausting and his artwork showed his disdain for it.

Don’t hate me, hate history

Moo

@The- potato-warrior By the time he died, he had sold only one painting. Being recognized as a painter in a few circles while living is a far cry from being recognized as one of the greatest painters who ever lived posthumously.

I remember the night I first heard this song, a musician myself in my twenties, cutting my teeth in the Austin, Texas music scene. The clubs had all closed down, and the night owls went to a 24 hour cafe called Magnolia Cafe near a lake. I got a seat by the window; ordered pancakes and was staring up at a full moon with pink clouds blowing across it, the kind you see in Austin because of the reflection of the city lights on the atmosphere. Pink Moon came on the sound system. I will never forget.
