I downloaded a song and transcribed the lyrics here, but could someone find out for me whose song it is and what it’s called? as far as i am concerned this song doesn’t exist!!! [according to eMule the song title is Broken Earth by Nick Drake, but I looked through all Nick Drake lyrics online and wasn’t able to locate it.]
No change today,
Couldn’t count on you anyway,
My lights had turned from red to gray
The dead man’s color
Hear the dogs outside
All the strays lay quite for a while
Hoping for a break in the broken earth
Use all of my time
Use anything you can find
To ride me down,
Like the broken earth
I can’t find a reliable cite to back me up, but I think that “Broken Earth” by Nick Drake was released as one of the sides of a single but was never included on an LP - thus why you can’t find it listed anywhere.
I’m a massive massive Nick Drake fan and I’ve never heard of it.
Googling it reveals claims it’s a Soft Machine/Drake collaboration. However, this messageboard says that the attribution of the song to Nick Drake is a hoax. One of the posters claims to have spoken to Allan Holdsworth of Soft Machine, and he denied any collaboration. The definitive Nick Drake site doesn’t mention it.
If it’s legal to do so, email it to jimmywee at gmail dot com and I’ll give you my opinion on the voice!
