IF - Drifting

Drifting

Listening to Nick Drake tonight.
To see other takes on drifting visit Illustration Friday.





Please give me a second grace
Please give me a second face
I’ve fallen far down the first time around
Now I just sit on the ground in your way

Now if it’s time for recompense for what’s done
Come, come sit down on the fence in the sun
And the clouds will roll by
And we’ll never deny
It’s really too hard
For to fly

Please tell me your second name
Please play me your second game
I’ve fallen so far for the people you are
I just need your star for a day

So come, come ride in my street-car by the bay
For now I must know how fine you are in your way
And the sea sure as I
But she won’t need to cry
For it’s really too hard
For to fly

  3. Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it!
    I really like your image too, it looks as thought she is floating on air. Actually made by the frost-smoke that planes leave behind when they are flying high in the atmosphere. Which makes her very surreal. In a very good and dreamy way.
    Oh, and I really liked your The Kiss -picture too! Wonderful expression!

  8. There is a sort of electrical, magical, dreamy and haunting quality to it! It brings about all those words when I look at it. But, there is a goddess quality to it yet. I guess, what I'm trying to say is..."brilliant" :)
