[public school is a place] ..where the sensitive experience a horrified dissociation from reality that can sometimes never fade away.
- Nick Drake (1948-1974)

I can't cope, all the defences are gone. All the nerves are exposed.
- Nick Drake

I can't think of words. I feel no emotion about anything. I don't want to laugh or cry. I'm numb-dead inside.
- Nick Drake - in converstaion with John Wood

Sheila Wood (John Wood's wife): 'If you're so unhappy Nick, why haven't you killed yourself?'
Nick: 'It's too cowardly, and besides, I don't have the courage'

I always said that Nick was born with a skin too few
Nick Drake's sister Gabrielle

When you put aside the singing, lyrics, the arrangements, and everything else, and you just listen to the guitar playing, you can hear that Nick was an extraordinary musician with very, very strong technique, big strong hands. The guitar playing was incredibly clean and accurate and inventive. The way he developed his tunings, some people still haven't figured out some of his tunes.
- John Boyd

The most withdrawn person I've ever met.
- John Martyn

Story about this misheard lyric by: settergirl83

I adore this song and I was scandalized when my best friend asked me what was up with the bingo song on the mix cd I made her. So we got another friend and asked her to judge whether Nick was singing 'Pink' or 'Bingo.' She came down squarely on the side of 'Bingo,' but also suggested that it might be 'Pinko Moon,' implying residual anti-Communism. Give me a break, guys!
