Northern Sky
Nick Drake Lyrics


I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

I've been a long time that I'm waiting
Been a long that I'm blown
I've been a long time that I've wandered
Through the people I have known
Oh, if you would and you could
Straighten my new mind's eye.

Would you love me for my money
Would you love me for my head
Would you love me through the winter
Would you love me 'til I'm dead
Oh, if you would and you could
Come blow your horn on high.

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky.

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here
Brighten my northern sky

I've been a long time that I'm waiting
Been a long time that I'm blown
I've been a long time that I've wandered
Through the people I have known
Oh, if you would and you could
Straighten my new mind's eye

Would you love me for my money
Would you love me for my head
Would you love me through the winter
Would you love me ‘til I'm dead
Oh, if you would and you could
Come blow your horn on high

I never felt magic crazy as this
I never saw moons knew the meaning of the sea
I never held emotion in the palm of my hand
Or felt sweet breezes in the top of a tree
But now you're here

Brighten my northern sky

he didn't express happiness too often in his music, but when he did it was just as powerful and beautiful as his sorrow

Your description was simply impeccable! I remember the day you posted it, but I have no idea I’ve come to comment this only now, 6 years later! As a matter of fact, I’ve been visiting this video for a long time, almost everyday! I can’t stay much time without listening to this magnificent piece of art!

Well put Dave; this is something that needs emphasising evermore these days generally. For everyone who feels 9 parts sadness to 1 part sad - make that 1 part count. I try to.

Fun fact: John Cale of the Velvet Underground played piano, celeste and organs on this song. This is the official song of my sobriety.
