"So Quiet In Here" as written by and Van Morrison....
Foghorns blowing in the night
Salt sea air in the morning breeze
Driving cars all along the coastline
This must be what it's all about
Oh this must be what it's all about
This must be what paradise is like
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here

The warm look of radiance on your face
And your heart beating close to mine
And the evening fading in the candle glow
This must be what it's all about
Oh this must be what it's all about
This must be what paradise is like
So quiet in here. so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, yeah, so peaceful in here

All my struggling in the world
And so many dreams that don't come true
Step back, put it all away
It don't matter, it don't matter anymore
Oh this must be what paradise is like
This must be what paradise is like
It's so quiet in here, so peaceful in here
It's so quiet in here, so peaceful in here

A glass of wine with some friends
Talking into the wee hours of the dawn
Sit back and relax your mind
This must be, this must be, what it's all about
This must be what paradise is like
Oh this must be what paradise is like
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here

Big ships out in the night
And we're floating across the waves
Sailing for some other shore
Where we can be what we want to be
Oh this must be what paradise is like
This must be what paradise is like
Baby it's so quiet in here, so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, so peaceful in here
So quiet in here, you can hear, it's so quiet

    General CommentI don't pretend to understand nor be good at interpreting poetry, but I do know what I like -- and I love this song. Years later it still brings me back to one of MY favorite places and state of mind. Just think of where you love to relax, what you so totally enjoy and allows you total ecape. Listen to this song and you soon find yourself back there. It's wonderful therapy!

    My InterpretationI get a feeling this song is about coming to terms with the realisation that the dreams and ambitions we have in our youth have not all been achieved and life did turn out quite the the way we had planned. But that's ok because despite that we can find happiness and contentment in what we have while still imagining what we could have had but not chasing it because doing so would jeopardise what we have. Great use of metaphors in this song. We are big ships in our own minds, yet to the observer we are merely a dot on the horizon.
