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

So look, see the days
The endless coloured ways
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning

And now we rise and we are everywhere
And now we rise from the ground
And see she flies, and she is everywhere
See she flies all around

So look, see the sights
The endless summer nights
And go play the game that you learned
From the morning

Almost impossible to listen to any of his songs without feeling a deep sense of angst for the artist and his short life.

Great segue. First get me thinking of Nick Drake on a cover then pull out another Drake song. Excellent!



 
Did it again today.  Nice job Bill
Excellent!!!
Oh, thank you for playing this.
Very relaxing song. I really enjoyed it.  
All that water in the background makes me want to pee. Off to powder my nose...
Poor bugger. He might have had a chance these days. Great stuff while he was able to...It's nice some people saw that.

This album was one of my little guy's lullaby cds for a long time.... it works wonders, and I mean that with all respect and appreciation.

Very good indeed - such a gentle and evocative song. Once again I salute the genius of Nick Drake!  {#Good-vibes}

Sad though, I hope this song does not get ruinated by television commercials like Pink Moon. I can't even listen to that used to be wonderful song anymore and now this one is in danger of being removed from my playlist as well.{#Sad} Freekin AT&T!{#Arghhh}

 
I like when RP educates me as to where these 'commercial' songs originate!
