5 On Friday - Discovery Edition

Supposedly this is Black Friday, but I refuse to go anywhere near a store when in recovery mode from the great American pig out.  Instead I will introduce you to a musician I discovered recently totally by accident.  His short life was sad, but his music was remarkable and influenced many of our most popular musicians.  You can read all about him here:  NICK DRAKE

To participate in this wonderful meme created by our friend Trav of Trav's Thoughts, simply sign in on his site and go forth and share your own music choices for the day.

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 to 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 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.
