Listening to Nick Drake makes me yearn for true love
BillG, the lyrics for this song are missing on RP, but you can insert them from here if you want, when you have the time (even though they're quite simple). Thanks!


Why leave me hanging on a star?
When you deem me so high
When you deem me so high
When you deem me, so high

Why leave me sailing in a sea?
When you hear me so clear
When you hear me so clear
When you hear me, so clear

Why leave me hanging on a star?
When you deem me so high
When you deem me so high
When you deem me, so high
The first Nick Drake song I've heard here on RP that I don't instantly love.

His vocal delivery in the first line of each verse is what kills it for me.

(still love the guitar, and the rest of the song)

He died about a year before the Sex Pistols were formed.  This song is an alternate take from 1974, not 1979.  It appeared on a compilation album from 2004.

I love his guitar playing. Voice is nice too.

It's not though. Mine have red liquid running from them, I feel strangely faint and I want to punch my computer.

So sad that he left us
Yo subi esta cancion para que la voten y la reproduzcan en la radio! Gracias Radio Paradise por difundir al grandioso NICK DRAKE!!!
I like Nick Drake quite a bit, but this is not my favorite, by a long shot....
Hard to believe in the same era as The Clash or Sex Pistols this guy was out there.
