I find Nick Drake's music happy, sad, powerful, mystical, healing,
inspiring and insightful. One particular verse I like is from his song 'Cello Song': (here are some of those words)So forget this cruel world

album, 1972's Pink Moon, he withdrew from both live performance and
recording, retreating to his parents' home in rural Warwickshire. On
November 25, 1974, Drake died from an overdose of a
prescribed antidepressant; he was 26 years old.
