These lyrics perfectly encapsulate the reclusive life of Nick Drake and, in a way Show me your taco woman shirt, explain the emotions he must have been feeling at the time. The music is simple yet sublime, with only a guitar and voice. The song is minor in key the entire time, until the very end when it turns to major key. This shift in mood perfectly symbolizes the life of Nick Drake. He suffered from major depression throughout his life and retreated from the public eye. He refused to be interviewed or play live, and never found great commercial success in his lifetime. He died at the age of 26 due to a suicidal drug overdose. However, his music gradually became more appreciated after his death to the point where there are documentaries and biographies being released about him today. His life was grim for quite a while, but ended with a happy conclusion and continues to be appreciated today. This song carries so much meaning and I love listening to it.
I’m a software engineer working in a well-reputed firm. Earning good to live a great bachelor life. My father and uncle both are working individuals so it never happened for me to send any kind of financial help at home. We are a joint family fyi 🙂 So this happened 4 months back. My uncle had a sudden pain in his left thigh. But he preferred to just have a pain killer instead of any medical inspection. Things went fine…BUT for a short time. 2 days down the line he again felt a nail throbbing pain in the same area. The pain was so much that my cousin and father HAD to take him instantly to a doctor. Had a few tests. We were hoping that it’s just a minor muscle breakdown that’s causing the pain. But what we were about to hear shattered the hell out of us! Reports came. The doctor started analyzing it and our retinas stuck at the doc face, if what’s the matter.
