Now And Then

There's something in your soul that makes me feel so old
In fact I think I've died about six hundred times
There's less of me now and more of me then
 — The Human League 'Almost Mediæval'


And I was green, greener than the hill
Where flowers grew and sun shone still
Now I’m darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be
 — Nick Drake 'Place To Be'

Another Place

I've got to leave I can't stay another day
There's an emptiness inside of me
I can't bear the loneliness out here
There's another place I've got to be
 — Floyd Red Crow Westerman 'Quiet Desperation'
