From the Morning - Nick Drake

I seem to be in a retro kick, similar to Andrew. What can I say about Nick Drake? Grandfather of folk. Drake never gained much fame during his lifetime, partly due to his refusal to perform live or give interviews. His three albums didn’t sell more than 5,000 copies, but Drake was an innovator with guitar techniques and spent a lot of time on his lyrics. An insomniac and clinically depressed, he died at the age of 26, two years after Pink Moon was released. Despite this, he gain post-humorous fame and rightly so.

If you’ve been following the Saturday posts, you know I’m a sucker for lyrics. I’m sure that there are other, more poetic songs but the way the music and the words fit together are so perfect. 

A day once dawned, and it was beautiful
A day once dawned from the ground
Then the night she fell
And the air was beautiful
The night she fell all around.

I hope you enjoy!

-KK
