"Quiet Life" as written by and David Sylvian....
This is the land very far from you
I never can see your face
This is the land far from happy
So am I, no matter where I go
Pretty landscape, fresh coffee
Quiet life I longed for is my enemy now
What's wrong with you babe? ask an old goat
I forgot everything even a bitter smile

In a dream darling you stroke my arms and say
Its OK, Its OK,
But I know it doesn't last so long
So I try to dream of you every night
And I try to hold you every time

This is the land very far from you
I never can hear your voice
This is the land far from success
So am I, no matter how you bet
Perfect starry sky, grand piano
Quiet life I longed for is my enemy now
Birds started for you, left me here
I forgot everything, even your way of waving

In a dream darling you stroke my arms and say
Its OK, Its OK
In a dream darling you stroke my hair and say
Its OK, Its OK
But I know it doesn't last so long
So I try to dream of you every night
And I try to hold you every time

Quiet Life
Quiet Life
