"Quiet Heart" as written by Joakim Berg, Markus Mustonen, Harri M�nty, Sami Sirvi� and Martin Sk�ld....
There was a time when I was lost in myself
You took my hand became my guide
There was a time you needed my help
I guess my Ego made me blind
Itґs not the rain itґs not the streetlights
That makes your skin so pale at night

Itґs your quiet heart
And your silence
Your dream is gone you are free
As your teardrops stain my sheets
Letґs take a trip through the wires
Stay free

There was a time I had your life in my hands
There was a time I caught your hiding inside
From something shining through the blinds
And you had life left in your eyes
Itґs not the shadow by the red lights
That makes my skin crawl late at night
Itґs your quiet heart
And your silence

As your teardrops stain my sheets
Letґs take a trip through the wires
Your dream is gone you are free
Itґs not the rain itґs not the streetlights

That makes your skin so pale at night
Itґs your silence
Itґs your quiet heart
As your teardrops stain my sheets
Letґs take a trip through the wires
Itґs your quiet heart
Your dream is gone you are free
And your silence

As your teardrops stain my sheets
Letґs take a trip through the wires
Our love is dead you are free

    General CommentI think it's pretty much about a guy who's reflecting back on a past relationship and realizes that he caused his ex a lot of pain that he didn't realize at the time because she never really spoke out about her unhappiness with the relationship.
    "There was a time when I was lost in myself
    You took my hand became my guide
    There was a time you needed my help
    I guess my ego made me blind "

    This is about the beginning of the relationship, how she helped him find himself and supported him, and in the end he was too blind to see that she needed help as well.


    The chorus "It´s your quiet heart
    And your silence
    As your teardrops stain my sheets
    Let´s take a trip through the wires
    Your dream is gone you are free
    Stay free"

    it's beautiful, and says a lot about how the girl never spoke out about how unhappy he made her, and now that he realizes it, he doesn't want to drag her back into the relationship because she's better off without him.

    I love this song, it's so sentimental and bittersweet.

    General CommentThis is one of rather few Kent songs that's originally in English, which might explain why it works so well (the translated ones tend to lose a lot). Definately one of my favorites, but I don't think I'll try to analyze it beyond that. Lovely, quite simply.
