Quiet

Last monday we had a chance to watch Jason Mraz live in concert, along with Raining Jane. It has been a long time since I last saw a concert, and it was a welcome break from all the chaos happening in my life. His style of performance is laid back, with stories behind every song, and a lot of improvisation. Even if I don’t know the lyrics to most of the new songs, it was still a very enjoyable experience. Raining Jane is also very good, and they both complement each other. Anyways, this song is among the songs they performed and I liked it even if it was my first time hearing it. ❤

 

Quiet

I want to, I want to hold you

Every time I go home there’s another cellphone tower
Construction getting louder,
Paving over yesterdays
You and I, we will try to find the side of it that’s pretty
While our town becomes a city,
We won’t let it be erased

Empires rise, empires fall
Will you be my constant through it all?

I will hold your hand and watch the world spin madly around this life we’re in
Oh yeah everything goes quiet
When it’s you I’m with
Oh yeah everything goes quiet
When it’s you I’m with
You, you, you…

Every once in a while,
You know I get these real bad headaches
Worried about the mistakes
That I’ve made along the way
You and I, we can’t hide from the fact that we need each other
How else will I recover when the fever comes again

Temperatures rise
Temperatures fall
Will you be my constant through it all?

There are no words, no words when
I’m with you, you, you
Every time I hear music
They’ve added more stuff to it
Things are always moving into a futuristic place
Where you and I, we will try
We can try to dance into tomorrow
But time we’ll have to borrow
Not a minute left to waste

Heartbeats rise, heartbeats fall
Will you be my constant through it all?
