"Quiet In My Town" as written by and Richard Wouters Steve Mckellar....
Today I heard that someone left this earth
That someone disappeared, left no mark here
Today I heard that someone just got up and left themselves
Lying on the ground

Today is, today is, today is
Quiet in my town
Quiet in my town

Today two boys disappeared without noise
And I wish that I was them
Flying somewhere over head
Tonight in silence
Two lovers they fight and one is bored, one is angry
But neither one of them is right

Today is, today is, today is
Quiet in my town
Quiet in my town

Oh somebody say something
Somebody say something
Somebody say something to me
Oh somebody say something
Somebody say something
Cause I can't take this silence anymore

Today is, today is, today is
Quiet in my town
Quiet in my town

Today I heard the sound of birds
And I wish that I was
Anywhere but here

[Repeat: x13]
It's too quiet

It's too quiet in my town
I say it out today is, today is, today is
Quiet in my town

Today is, today is, today is
To quiet in my town
To quiet in my town

    General Commentit's about that eerie stillness and quietness that you feel right after the death of a loved one or a tragedy in general. there's nothing to say; nothing matters the way it did before. no one knows what to say or do so you just don't do anything. there's nothing but quiet.

    General Commenti think this song is about the violence and the pain that this person goes through in this town. I think that this person lives day after day living in a town that is dead and having to hear about people dying and the pain that people go through.

    General Commenti totally agree with absolutebap.
    ive never thought of it in that way before but now just listening to it...
    its so repetitive in everything it keeps saying over and over. but its just like how your mind is so overwhelmed with this huge concept of someone not being alive anymore.
    and all you wanna do is just not think about it, but you really cant even think at all.

    General CommentI first heard this song on one tree hill and that is probably the saddest scene ever on the show when this song was playing. It was the episode where it was Q's funeral and it was the end. The song is really powerful. I get emotional everytime I hear it. Especially the last 3 minutes of it!

    General CommentMy sister started using meth earlier this year. She was already on pills pretty bad, so she just kind of jumped right in and yeah, she's hooked. She isn't herself any more at all. She's blank, empty, dead. This song remind's me of her so much.

    General Commentit kinda reminds me of the rapture with the line about people disappearing

    General CommentThis song is really nice, as for the rest of their songs. I couldn't agree more with absolutebap.

    General CommentI don't know how many One Tree Hill'ers are here, but this song had me bawling when they played it. Such a beautiful song.
