Hazey Jane I
Nick Drake Lyrics


Do you curse where you come from,
Do you swear in the night
Will it mean much to you
If I treat you right.
Do you like what you're doing,
Would you do it some more
Or will you stop once and wonder
What you're doing it for.
Hey slow Jane, make sense
Slow, slow, Jane, cross the fence.

Do you feel like a remnant
Of something that's past
Do you find things are moving
Just a little too fast.
Do you hope to find new ways
Of quenching your thirst,
Do you hope to find new ways
Of doing better than your worst.
Hey slow Jane, let me prove
Slow, slow Jane, we're on the move.

Do it for you,
Sure that you would do the same for me one day.
So try to be true,
Even if it's only in your hazey way.

Can you tell if you're moving
With no mirror to see,
If you're just riding a new man
Looks a little like me.
Is it all so confusing,
Is it hard to believe
When the winter is coming
Can you sign up and leave.
Hey slow Jane, live your lie
Slow, slow jane, fly on by.

@alan griffin I like it, but to each his own.

@alan griffin I guess I meant on Nick's part. It's not like any two people will ever agree on reverb, ever.

@aleji0 it'd be even better if Joe Boyd hadn't insisted on adding the awful orchestra into this superb song...same with Riverman

Wonderful, sad and so melancholy. This song has an atmosphere all of its own. It is both timeless and of its time. Nick Drake's legacy will live on forever thanks to beautifully moving music like this. RIP Nick.

Incredible song. The beginning is so amazingly playful, but still serious. I can't even describe it properly. It's perfection.
