lyrics

"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
