    Today it's 30 years since the passing of Nick Drake on November 25 1974.


    Fame is but a fruit tree
    So very unsound.
    It can never flourish
    Till its stock is in the ground.
    So men of fame
    Can never find a way
    Till time has flown
    Far from their dying day.
    Forgotten while you're here
    Remembered for a while
    A much updated ruin
    From a much outdated style.

    Life is but a memory
    Happened long ago.
    Theatre full of sadness
    For a long forgotten show.
    Seems so easy
    Just to let it go on by
    Till you stop and wonder
    Why you never wondered why.

    Safe in the womb
    Of an everlasting night
    You find the darkness can
    Give the brightest light.
    Safe in your place deep in the earth
    That's when they'll know what you were really worth.
    Forgotten while you're here
    Remembered for a while
    A much updated ruin
    From a much outdated style.

    Fame is but a fruit tree
    So very unsound.
    It can never flourish
    Till its stock is in the ground.
    So men of fame
    Can never find a way
    Till time has flown
    Far from their dying day.

    Fruit tree, fruit tree
    No-one knows you but the rain and the air.
    Don't you worry
    They'll stand and stare when you're gone.

    Fruit tree, fruit tree
    Open your eyes to another year.
    They'll all know
    That you were here when you're gone.

    Sounds like Nick Drake alright.

    He got caught up in mainstream, commercialized pop culture on his older days.

    oh, and if Nick Drake is so dead, how does he manage to keep releasing all of those Nick Drake & The Bad Seeds albums? O_o

    What a bunch of dumbasses......before you ask a 'who is....' question, try searching and learning something for yourself for a change.......

    ...."he wrote a song for a Volkswagen advertisement. it sounds like a ripoff of Belle & Sebastian."......

    guess he had VW in mind back BEFORE 1974 then, huh? . . . a ripoff of B&S....give me a fuck!ng break - they would be the thieves, not Nick.

    @ Barky - Grteat post - Nick is always being played here - has been for years.
