Place to Be
Nick Drake Lyrics


When I was young, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I'm older, see it face to face
And now I'm older, gotta get up, clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where flowers grow and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be
And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I'd see when day was done
Now I'm weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you

When I was young, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I'm older—see it face to face
And now I'm older—gotta get up clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be

And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I'd see when day was done
Now I'm weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you

@Stefano Barbieri Scottish folk singers have a certain accent where words do blend together. Might help out the more passive listeners.

Antonina Virduzzo

Pessimist too much

Honestly I can't understand how a "copy-paste" of the lyrics of THIS song can be the most voted comment.

Megan Langreck

Irony, he was still young. Chronologically, at least.

As soon as that guitar starts, I can feel my breathing and my heart beat slow down, and my mind get present and calm.

David Beckey

Me too, Karen. Glad there are other Nick fans out there.......

@Tourz for me it is, ffs. Music affects each listener in a unique way. Attend to your own groove.
