robyn hitchcock – i saw nick drake lyrics


i saw nick drake
at the corner of time and motion
i caught his eye
and he caught mine
i said “you’re tall.”
he said “no taller than tomorrow’s ocean.”
i saw nick drake
and he was fine

i saw nick drake
as we were carrying the ice together
i saw his face
beneath the gl-ss
the net was gone
and all the strawberries of english weather
i saw him p-ss
right through this place

i saw nick drake
the habits of a lifetime
will lay you low
into your grave
and when you’re gone
you take the whole world with you
i saw nick drake
i saw him wave

and we’re in bloom
