Three Hours
Nick Drake Lyrics


Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep
The sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave

Three hours from London
Jacomo's free
Taking his woes
Down to the sea
In search of a lifetime
To tell when he's home
In search of a story
That's never been known

Three hours from speaking
Everyone's flown
Not wanting to be
Seen on their own
Three hours is needed
To leave from them all
Three hours to wonder
And three hours to fall

Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep the sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave

Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep 
The sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave

Three hours from London
Jacomo's free
Taking his woes
Down to the sea
In search of a lifetime
To tell when he's home
In search of a story
That's never been known

Three hours from speaking
Everyone's flown
Not wanting to be
Seen on their own
Three hours is needed
To leave from them all
Three hours to wonder
And three hours to fall

Three hours from sundown
Jeremy flies
Hoping to keep the sun from his eyes
East from the city
And down to the cave
In search of a master
In search of a slave

don't blame nick drake's music for the darkness in your head. it already existed. his beautiful music was his way of coping with the darkness and many more of us feel the same way. do not run from "bad moods" or just look for ways to avoid them. There is something deeper going on. explore it with a gentle, caring heart.

What - you don't want us to spend our lives running away from ourselves, in distraction, Dear Robert? What's wrong with you?

I used to listen to Nick albums on my breaks to lunch while working near the countryside some years ago. Every day at noon walked some 100 meters to a small grove, sit on a tree and play his music for an hour. Best moment of the day.

The best video of any use of music and imagery i v ever seen was in the bbc documenary "F1 the killer years" where they played this song with "on board" fotage of the f1 drver jim clark who died in an accident. Truly truly shivers down the spine .. amazing

Dominic Charters
