Time Has Told Me - Nick Drake

Time Has Told Me
by Nick Drake



Time has told me
You're a rare rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind.

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
Someday our ocean
Will find its shore.

So I`ll leave the ways that are making me be
What I really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making me love
What I really don't want to love.

Time has told me
You came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint
A rose with no thorn.

Your tears they tell me
There's really no way
Of ending your troubles
With things you can say.

And time will tell you
To stay by my side
To keep on trying
'til there's no more to hide.

So leave the ways that are making you be
What you really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making you love
What you really don't want to love.

Time has told me
You're a rare rare find
A troubled cure
For a troubled mind.

And time has told me
Not to ask for more
For some day our ocean
Will find its shore.


I was sent this song the other day - quite lovely words. Although I have heard quite a bit osf his music, I am listening to more. Cant quite make up my mind about his music. I don't think I would play it a lot. But it is expanding my knowledge and understanding so that can only be a positive thing. Quite a tragic figure really. He died of an overdose - apparently by mistake.
