Drake, Nick - Tow The Line Lyrics




This day is the day that we rise or we fall
This night is the night that we win or lose all
This time is the time that we wait for a while
This year is the year that we wait with a smile

If you call, we will follow
If you show us we can tow the line

And now that you're here you can show me the way
Now that you're here we can try make it pay
For while you were gone it was hard it was cold
While you were gone we were time we were old

If you call we will follow
If you show us we can tow the line

Drake, Nick Tow The Line Comments
  1. Modern idiot

    More people need to listen to Nick Drake.

  2. pyewackett 5

    Always a quiet urgency . Running into the darkening with the dying sun in your eyes

  3. Bluesagelandscape

    I love hearing him put down his guitar at the end.

  4. Michael Lyle

    Huge talent lost too early. So creative and capable of much more. This is way beyond the folk genre

  5. Newbie Failmaster

    Nick Drake is God.

    Choco Manger

    *Nice Cave

    Nick Drake is good.

  6. Caldera Records

    Remarkable talent. Even here.. at his wits end & a little number he never intended anyone to hear is still a POWER HOUSE of burgeoning burning emotion. I often imagine myself being able to go back in time & thank the man for the copious amount of pleasure he has given me & many others! Its funny how desperate his songs make you to love him, & want to worship the ground he stepped on. :'(

    If anyone are collectivists, I have a pristine remaster of this classic. I never ever mess with the song; I merely bring out the tiny details of his nuances & increase the gain a little so it doesn't suffer within playlists, without sacrificing the dynamics Nick was known for. Ask me & we'll Drop Box or Email the MP3.

    His songs were completly wonderful, and if was not enough, you can tell that his songs were get even better,.... This was perfect, Life Sometimes have strange paths.... i cannot understand....

    subsamadhi

    Whats not to understand? He was a rich kid who was able to indulge his passion for music. And he was good at it

    Luís Ricardo

    I can't understand, why he have the destiny he had.... do you understand now?!?!

  8. Mike Hobson

    LINE FOLLOW, OLD, COLD, PAY WAY, LINE FOLLOW, SMILE WHILE ALL FALL

  9. hardfolk

    This day is the day that we rise or we fall
    This night is the night that we win or lose all
    This time is the time that we wait for a while
    This year is the year that we wait with a smile

    Amazing lyrics! I love you forever Nick!

    Daniel Hollingworth

    He wasn't suicidal all though in a fragile state as these lyrics attests, this was his swansong not Black-eyed Dog.

  10. paulph12002

    Tow the line was unheard for 30 years before finally being released in 2004 on the Made To Love Magic CD. 

  11. downtown

    you are perfectly right!

  12. Ellen Palmo

    And even when it was hard for him to feel he created such a incredible song. I never felt music the way I do Nick's...it is too deep and touches my soul for real.
