Nick Drake-Clothes of Sand

Who has dressed you in strange clothes of sand 
Who has taken you far from my land 
Who has said that my sayings were wrong 
And who will say that I stayed much too long? 

Clothes of sand have covered your face 
Given you meaning but taken my place 
So make your way on down to the sea 
Something has taken you so far from me. 

Does it now seem worth all the colour of skies 
To see the earth through painted eyes 
To look through panes of shaded glass 
See the stains of winter's grass. 

Can you now return to from where you came 
Try to burn your changing name 
Or with silver spoons and coloured light 
Will you worship moons in winter's night. 

Clothes of sand have covered your face 
Given you meaning but taken my place 
So make your way on down to the sea 
Something has taken you so far from me.
