Nick Drake – Place to be

Die [tag]Songtexte[/tag] eines der größten [tag]Songwriter[/tag] dieses Jahrhunderts: Nick Drake. Obwohl er nur so alt wurde, wie ich jetzt bin, bevor an einer Überdosis Antideppressiva verstarb, hat er drei wunderschöne Alben hinterlassen: Five Leaves Left (1969), Bryter Layter (1970) und Pink Moon (1972)

Nick Drake – Place To Be

When I was younger, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I’m older see it face to face
And now I’m older gotta get up clean the place.

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I’m darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be.

And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I’d see when day is done
Now I’m weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you.
