So beautiful lyrics, Day Is Done

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you begun
When the day is done

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life’s not made of gold
When the night is cold

When the bird has flown
Got no-one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird has flown

When the game’s been fought
Newspaper blown accross the court
Lost much sooner than you would have thought
Now the game’s been fought

When the party’s through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn’t do the things you meant to do
Now there’s no time to start anew
Now the party’s through

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done



judith praise

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything
That was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you begun
When the day is done

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life's not made of gold
When the night is cold

When the bird has flown
Got no one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird has flown

When the game's been fought
Newspaper blowing across the court
Lost much sooner
Than you would have thought
Now the game's been fought

When the party's through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn't do the things you meant to do
Now there's no timing to start anew
Now the party's through

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything
That was lost and won
When the day is done

NICHOLAS RODNEY DRAKE



Florian Girstmair

Dear Nick,

I stumbled across your music by pure chance, a couple of years ago. When I was on a quest to find the thing that was missing in my heart, the thing that made me, me and learn to love it. Thanks to you, I was able to find it.
After a stranger advised me to listen to your music and I heard the first song of you, it was Pink Moon if I recall correctly, I couldn't stop listening to your music. I got all of your albums, learned about your life and I can safely say, that your music defined me, defined who I am today. So much so, that all my close friends and siblings correlate your music to me and think of me whenever they listen to your songs. Or that's what they tell me...
What I want to do here, is to utter a thank you and I mean it from the bottom of my heart, when I say that I love you.

I'm sure you remember the time when almost nobody has heard of you. Even I remember such a time and it wasn't all that long ago. It almost brings tears to my eyes to see how many other people consider your music important to them.
Do you feel it, Nick? The joy all of us are having, the peace we are expressing, the sorrow we are sharing, while listening to you? All the people thinking about you... Can you feel them, Nick?

In the end it is like you said...

"Fame is but a fruit tree
So very unsound.
It can never flourish
Until its stock is in the ground.

So men of fame
Can never find a way
Until time has flown
Far from their dying day"

It seems like 40 years is finally far enough. But nothing has really changed down here.

"When the night is cold
Some get by and some get old
Just to show that life's not made of gold
When the night is cold
...
When the party's through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn't do the things you meant to do
Now there's no time to start anew
When the party's through"

All in all I love my fellow humans though, I really do. Even if we are not the most considering beings, most of us try our best every day.
I know that you are up there, watching us, singing your songs to my grandpa and all the other blokes. Give them my regards, will you? I hope to see you someday aswell but I'll stay here for a little longer. Don't wait for me though. I will keep listening to your music for the rest of the way, if that is alright. It's so I can...

"... forget this cruel world
Where I belong
I'll just sit and wait
And "listen" to your song
And if one day you should see me in the crowd
Lend a hand and lift me
To your place in the cloud"

With the greatest appreciation,

a Stranger.

for every Nick Drake that finds recognition after his flame has died, there are a hundred others that are never known. Thankyou Nick for showing us the hidden gifts of the shy and retiring souls on this earth.

So beautifully said and full of truth.

Craig Thornton

I hate how this world measures worth based on volume of speech and narcissism

dermot51

Nick was extremely shy and sensitive he wouldn't have cut it in the bullshit world of popular music even if he had 'hits' just like Ian Curtis very sad they weren't meant for this shithole planet

To me, Nick standing against the wall is so fitting now. He stood still in time, while the rest of the world walked and ran past him.
