In this quiet little place, I can't remember having known a different pace
In this quiet little place, I can surrender to the beauty of its face

And now everything I see
Whether it's an airplane or a tree
It makes me wonder
About the things I must have missed
And the chains around my wrists
They are no longer

In this quiet little place
I can't imagine what it's like to be back home
Where they care about what time it is
And spend their days answering the phone

And now everything I feel
Whether it's fiction or it's real
It's so much clearer
Like the color of this light
It seems more dangerous and bright
But I don't fear her

And slowly it fades, I'm back in the race
I have to fight it, I know
I don't want to go away

In this quiet little place
You run your fingers through my hair and whisper "Hey"
And no matter how I try, I can't seem to think of anything better to say

    General CommentIt's a quiet little place. It could be an actual physical place, or a specific person who you hang out with, or just stopping anywhere and blocking out the chaos in life. But where ever and whatever it is, it's an escape. An oasis to refresh the soul so you can go back and deal with life.

    General CommentI always thought this was someone who used to be hospitalised and exiting said confinement for the first time. It seems quite apparant from the lyrics. I do love it.

    General CommentI hear this song as being about dreaming or using. Effective either way.
