Songs I love: Place To Be

Written and performed by the amazing Nick Drake, the song was first featured on his final alum, Pink Moon (released in '72, when he was around 24 years old). I love the album and this song is one of  my favourites.

 When I was young, 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 a hill
Where 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.
