While many of Trey’s ballads get mocked in the Phish community, “Drifting” has remained immune from attacks. First debuted on the winter 2001 Trey solo tour, it has remained in heavy rotation in that band’s setlists. There’s a simple beauty in this song making it the ballad of choice for those who don’t like slow songs.



“Drifting” has been played just once by Phish. In a set where each member of the band chose a song from their side projects to play – kind of a ‘show and tell’ of what they did during the hiatus – Trey’s contribution was “Drifting.” The version played on 2/26/03 in Worcester was solid even if most fans of the solo project didn’t feel that it reached the heights that Trey’s “other” band brings to the song. For now the Phish fan base will have to be happy with this; but perhaps once again the fog will lift revealing the lights overhead.

Lyrics:

(Anastasio/Markellis/Lawton)
© Who Is She? Music, BMI

I've been drifting,
For years at sea.
But now, you've come along,
to rescue me.

And the fog is lifted,
We got the moon and the stars above.

Since you came along, (love, love, love)
I'm back where I belong.
(love, love, love)
Since you rescued me,
(love, love, love)
The whole world is there to see.

And the storm has lifted.
We've got the moon and stars above..

In Mornin'
It's plain to see.
Smell coffee in the air.
You're here with me.

I'm walkin' down the street.(love, love, love)
The sun beams down. (love, love, love)
The grass is cool beneath my feet.
My head is spinnin' round and round'

And the storm has lifted.
We've got the moon and stars above.
