If I try I can always go Back to where the low was high It takes two Seconds and I'm gone Back to where the wrong was right And it makes me smile But it's just for a while If I want to I can always go Back to when the stone was white It takes three Seconds and I'm there Back when all the red had glare And it gets me high But it's just for a while And it feels so right But it's just for a while

I sense a storm is coming Black clouds are heading this way There is no use in hiding Why should we be scared? Oh, let's dance in the rain You need a woman by you You look for her each and every day But she can sense that off you So it turns her away Oh, won't you hear me say It's easy if you don't try It's easy if you don't care It's easy if you free your mind It's easy if you dare I get a little dizzy From all this new music around It seems like all they're after Is just the same old sound So hollow and round It's easy if you don't try It's easy if you don't care It's easy if you free your mind It's easy if you dare

You looked at the ceiling and counted for me All the things I could lose If something inside me was stupid enough to refuse I turned to you slowly and asked if you knew What it is one should do When someone they love is just holding them down like glue Oh, this is not the man You used to know Show me you understand Please let me know that I can go The light from the kitchen was never so strong Your breath began to slow down I layed there with eyes open wide feeling lost and bound Something inside me had started to burn Burn my blood and my skin As I took away the life that we had once again Oh, this is not the man You used to know Show me you understand Please let me know that Oh, this is not the man You used to know Show me you understand Please let me know that I can Know that I can go I can go I can go

"When I leapt into the car to drive home, I found the task extremely difficult. I think I drove the whole way home on the right hand side of the road. In moments of stress, such as was this journey home, What one forgets so easily, There lies the truth and the pain." -Nick Drake Nine in the morning Your family is mourning, you're gone Nine in the evening I'm sitting and hearing your songs Life's but a fruit tree Your lyrics, they chill me Your music's a drug to my mind And it stings when I think of how they to your talent were blind You don't look like a star When you play your guitar And you never once knew The crowd's there for you Now the stock's in the ground And your life still echoes in sound Seven years later Your family's still mourning, you're gone Seven years later We're sitting and we're playing your songs Time it has told me Your lyrics still chill me You're as brilliant as you'll ever be And it stings when I think of how you'll never be here to see You don't look like a star When you play your guitar And you never once knew The crowd's there for you Now the stock's in the ground And your life still echoes The stock's in the ground And your life still echoes The stock's in the ground And your life still echoes in sound

She came with the dawn Beautiful and captivating I loved her eyes She left with no tears Hollow look and frozen body I missed her smile The stars filled the sky Hoping to see A glimpse of her face So free She came with the dawn Winter brought us close together I held her hand She left with no tears Autumn pushed her out to wander I missed her smile The stars filled the sky Hoping to see A glimpse of her face So free She left me with hope That someday she will come back to me I, I'll never try

I've been down this road before I've seen its twists and turns Now’s the time to grab this here chance Before it slowly burns Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride Baby Blue, the world is on our side I've got bones beneath my skin I get up when I fall But if you want, my Baby Blue Well, then you can have it all, yeah Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride Baby Blue, the world is on our side Baby Blue, I'll take you for a ride Baby Blue, the world is on our side Tell me something to help me come back home to you You know that I want to, Baby Blue You know that I want to You know that I love you, Baby Blue You know that I want to You know that I love you, Baby Blue
7.
I loved you for a very long time I loved you and it did me fine But now you're off alone again And I just think I need a friend Oh, that snow Oh, that snow And up to here The road was clear All that snow can't be real I kissed you for the very first time Even though I knew you're blind Your eyes closed up without a sound The walls began to spin around Oh, that snow Oh, that snow And up to here The road was clear All that snow can't be real Can't be real There's a spark when we're together That I can't explain Don't let it slip away this time Before it's gone forever

I found out what you wrote On that hidden note You wrote that you were sad to your bones And alone I heard you took a vow To take up the guitar You need to learn to be with yourself Again May You have got to stay away And believe me when I say My heart will wait Every day For you, May I saw you passing by On the street at night You looked at me and gave me a last Smile I understand at last We can't change the past We can only stay on our paths And walk May You have got to stay away You have got to stay away And believe me when I say My heart will wait Every day For you, May
9.
Every day when I wake up alone I'm not sure where I am And every night when her eyes start to close It's like I'm sinking in sand It's easier now Just to let her go It's easier now Just to call it home Under these skies Make it so I don't have to go back I can sleep through the rain Make it so I don't watch her grow up I can take all the blame It's easier now Just to let her go It's easier now Just to call it home Under these skies It's easier now It's easier now Under these skies of blue
10.
Look at all these tired, wired people Who don't go out to play I can understand them, know them, be them But I'm careful every day Seems to me you've traveled enough Looking for a soul that you can trust Well, now you've found it Now you've found it Every time she's laughing, dancing or crying There's a trembling in my knees And if you've ever felt it, or something like it Well, then you know what I mean Seems to me you've traveled enough Looking for a soul that you can trust Well, now you've found it Seems to me you've traveled enough Looking for a soul that you can trust Well, now you've found it Now you've found it Now you've found it Now you've found it
