Mayfair – Nick Drake

Mayfair strange in the summer night, Mayfair strangest in the afternoon. Mayfair stretching far above, full of fame but lacking love, Could it be we see the Mayfair moon? Mayfair strange across the park, In the day or in the dark, There’s no need to walk or even run. Mayfair faces clean and nice, But […]

Time Has Told Me – Nick Drake

You’re a rare rare find A troubled cure For a troubled mind. And time has told me Not to ask for more Someday our ocean Will find its shore. So I`ll leave the ways that are making me be What I really don’t want to be Leave the ways that are making me love What […]

Strollin’ Down The Highway – Nick Drake

I`m gonna get there my way Just keep on down-a-walking You hear my guitar, rocking Well I stroll On down On down the highway People think I’m a crazing Lot about how they’re-a-lazing Sunshine’s all day long Narcotics far too strong Well I stroll On down On down the highway Cars won’t stop for no […]

Time Of No Reply – Nick Drake

And Autumn reached for her golden crown I looked behind as I heard a sigh But this was the time of no reply. The sun went down and the crowd went home I was left by the roadside all alone I turned to speak as they went by But this was the time of no […]

Voice From The Mountain – Nick Drake

And a voice from the sea Voice in my neighbourhood And a voice calling me. Tell me my friend my friend Tell me with love Where can it end it end Voice from above. The sound on the ocean wave And the sound in the tree Sound in a country lane Say you can be […]

Day Is Done – Nick Drake

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 began When the day is done. When the […]

Strange Meeting II – Nick Drake

So far away so long ago it seems The memory comes of a distant beach Pale sand stretching far from reach It was then I found my princess of the sand. As I traced the foam, peebles beneath my feet I looked behind, I saw this one so sweet She came to me and I […]

If You Leave Me – Nick Drake

Better not treat me right Just have to forget you After tomorrow night Believe me, pretty mama Better take your picture too Don’t want to remember What a good looking girl can do Don’t send me no letter Don’t write me no postcard Thinking about you, baby Makes it twice as hard Believe me, pretty […]

One Of These Things First – Nick Drake

A real live lover, could have been a book. I could have been a signpost, could have been a clock As simple as a kettle, steady as a rock. I could be Here and now I would be, I should be But how? I could have been One of these things first I could have […]

At The Chime Of A City Clock – Nick Drake

Get on your knees Pray for warmth and green paper. A city drought You’re down and out See your trousers don’t taper. Saddle up Kick your feet Ride the range of a London street Travel to a local plane Turn around and come back again. And at the chime of the city clock Put up […]

The Thoughts Of Mary Jane – Nick Drake

The thoughts of Mary jane Why she flies Or goes out in the rain Where she’s been And who she’s seen In her journey to the stars. Who can know The reasons for her smile What are her dreams When they’ve journeyed for a mile The way she sings And her brightly coloured rings Make […]

Get Together – Nick Drake

Fear the way we die It can make the mountains ring Make the angels cry So the bird is on the wind You may not know why Hey people now, smile on your brother Let me see you get together And love one another Some may come and some may go We will surely pass […]

Poor Boy – Nick Drake

I never help my neighbour Never do what is proper For my share of labour. I’m a poor boy And I’m a rover Count your coins and Throw them over my shoulder I may grow older Nobody knows How cold it grows And nobody sees How shaky my knees Nobody cares How steep my stairs […]

Hazey Jane I – Nick Drake

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 […]
