"Day Is Done" as written by and Nick Drake....
When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you began
When the day is done

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life's not made of gold
When the night is cold.

When the bird has flown

    General CommentThis is a Nick Drake song, and like all of his songs, it is truly beyond amazing. Its about his life and the trouble he went through before he committed suicide and how time is up and the end comes quickly.
