Nick Drake – Day Is Done lyrics

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done.

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you began
When the day is done.

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life's not made of gold
When the night is cold.

When the bird has flown
Got no-one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird has flown.

When the game's been fought
You speed the ball across the court
Lost much sooner than you would have thought
Now the game's been fought.

When the party's through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn't do the things you meant to do
Now there's no time to start anew
Now the party's through.

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done.

    I believe its a cautionary tale, of how you would like to see things out, that when the day, party, bird, life has done its thing, is it the way you wanted it, and the beauty of the song is that as you read or hear the words, to be able to think means its not the end, you can change anything, just remember what you want to achieve. :) nick is such a beauty yay for love and heart felt songs.
