Nick Drake - Hazey Jane II Lyrics




And what will happen in the morning when the
world it gets so crowded that you can't look out
the window in the morning

And what will happen in the evening in the forest
with the weasel with the teeth that bite so sharp
when you're not looking in the evening

And all the friends that you once knew are left
behind they kept you safe and so secure amongst
the books and all the records of your lifetime

What will happen
In the morning
When the world it gets so crowded that you can't
look out the window in the morning

Hey, take a little while to grow your brothers hair
And now, take a little while to make your sister fair
And now that the family
Is part of a chain
Take off your eyeshade
Start over again

Now take a little while to find your way in here
Now take a little while to make your story clear
Now that you're lifting
Your feet from the ground
Weigh up your anchor
And never look round

Let's sing a song
For Hazey Jane
She's back again in my mind
If songs were lines
In a conversation
The situation would be fine

  6. heusker

    This sounds like the perfect song for a road trip to the Redwoods in California to go camping with your cute girlfriend after packing up the car in the morning.

    Bilal Yildiz

    heusker all I need is a car, a Gf and a ticket for California then

  9. Ben Douglas

    Taken way to soon, a music legend..

  10. HU13 9AX

    I can hear bits of dire straits in this - sultans of swing

    Mini TV Box

    The other way around. Considering this song came out 7 years before Dire Straits debut album, I would say instead that 'Sultans of Swing' sounds a lot like 'Hazey Jane II'.

  11. Markxist

    When all other music is old, this will still be new

  12. M arty

    Unusual sound and lyrics but nice to listen to

  13. Joanne Pagano

    There will never be another...
    You were one of a kind

  14. Mindful Arts

    This is so playful, cool and joyful. What an audacious melody line! Hearing this it's amazing that he couldn't get a girlfriend. Hazy Jane, you could have saved him...

    Almost Literally

    Mindful Arts hazy jane = marijuana

    Linda Jones

    Mindful Arts .......Nick is referring to pot, he wrote other songs about “Mary Jane”.

  15. Zach W

    It’s so groovy. Anyone know any other songs similar to this sound?

    Jo Ro

    Zach W., have you met Belle and Sebastian? Zach, Belle.. Belle, Zach😀

  16. Burt472

    Thanks Nick...I really do hope Jane loved you the way you deserved to be loved...I know you loved her

    Mr. Leftward Sloping Penis

    Burt472 pretty sure this isn’t a love song bud, seems to me theres more of an existential theme going on, Hazey Jane is alluding to his drug use

    Burt472

    @Mr. Leftward Sloping Penis Oh.....Ok...Maybe so...Thanks

    O tipo de.musica que eu ouço dezenas de vezes ao dia ,todos os dias....eu fico impressionado com a qualidade e.sofisticaçåo do Nick Drake ,levando em consideração que esse álbum foi lançado em 1970.

  20. M P

    "Hey Stuart. It's your cousin Marvin. Marvin Murdoch. I've found that new sound you're looking for. Listen to this"

  21. 47 Music

    My favorite song by him, it means a lot to me , listen to it often. Though, not in awhile, and listening to this high reminds me why I love it so much.

  22. Jon Thornton

    If we didn't know anything about him. all we'd be able to say is, what an amazing song, who the hell is this guy..?

  23. Cristian Bellino

    So optimustic yet still so depressive

  24. carlestoner

    Ta'filete po guasho.
    (Filete de seitán. Todo veg)

  25. Doc Vega

    I was lucky enough to have discovered Nick's tunes on a local underground rock station back in the day and really dug his music then. I was shattered by his death. I was however heartened to see the emergence of a new generation of admirers. He deserved far more than he got in life, but is this not true for many of us?

    Nes C

    Doc Vega i am one of those so called new admirers, this guy was ahead of his time

    Tom R

    Wow... good judgement eh! ;)

  26. Wilson Noble

    Art - Love - Music
    Mr Nick Drake ;)

  27. Stefan R

    His voice sounds so similar to Stuart of Belle & Sebastian here it's uncanny.

    bh617

    Yes, this could easily have been a B&S song.

    Melissa Nelson

    You've got it backwards. B&S ripped off this song for all it was worth.

    harryirene1

    Since someone mentioned he sounds like Chris Eubank I can't unhear it

    Flexipop T great moves Flexi, keep it up, proud of ya

    David LeMonstre

    7 months later and still no dislikes :)

  29. Rick Caron

    Can't help but think that Dire Straits took some inspiration from this when they created "Sultans of Swing"...

    Heather Autumn

    Rick Caron holy shit man you're so right

    Fabio Manic

    can't help but think that belle and sebastian took some inspiration from this when they created their entire catalogue

    Amelia Murray

    woaw i cant unhear it now!

    Mindful Arts

    It does swing in a similar way, I agree.

    Mindful Arts

    It's like a B+S title, also.

  30. conny Lampo

    Uplifting en ongelooflijk mooi

  31. giovanni natoli

    Insuperabile mio piccolo eroe

  33. Talita Roberto

    nick drake é trilha pra vida

    Gonsalo7 Paniagua

    Talita Roberto ,sem dúvida,que artista!!!mas hazey Jane,não traduz ,a obra de Drake,já que na maioria suas músicas são intimistas e como posso dizer...tristonhas.

    Burt472

    Sim...Concordo...Um saludo de Italia...Amo Brasil, seu Povo e sua Musica...Ate' mais

    Gabriel Alexandre

    e ainda tem influências de João Gilberto! <3

  34. bannork

    Beautiful chords and progressions, melodies that never leave you, and a voice that just seems so suitable for the tunes and words. Time has told me that Nick Drake's time will never pass.

    pablo burgos

    love him

    sinister geek

    yeah!! he is still with us!!
