  • You can say the sun is shining if you really want to
    I can see the moon and it seems so clear
    You can take the road that takes you to the stars now
    I can take a road that'll see me through
    I can take a road that'll see me through.

    You can take a road that takes you to the stars now
    I can take a road that'll see me through
    I can take a road that'll see me through
    I can take a road that'll see me through. Writer/s: Nick Drake

  • John from Kitchener, OnI think this song is directed towards his former manager, Joe Boyd.
  • Andy from Lake City, Flupbeat? not completely. my guess is he's again sorting recreational drug users from the "straight laced" old-fashioned conservatives. nick admits maybe they are on some moral path to find God. he himself is just trying to survive his own daily struggles alone and get his art out. sexually, who knows? nick seems to be singing to virgins, straight, and gay on this album.
