QUIET TIMES
(STEVE DAFOE 2005)
( COPYRIGHTED)


VERSE: 1

FEEL THE TREMOR,... HEAR THE ROAR
RACIN' DOWN THE RUNWAY...JUST ANOTHER JET
RISING HARD....RIPPING THROUGH THE AIR
MY EARS SURE FEELING ALL THIS WEAR
LIVIN' IN THIS NEW AGE SHAKES MY CORE
HEARIN' ALL THE NOISE....CAN'T TAKE NO MORE....TO: CHORUS


CHORUS 1 :

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
OH....QUIET TIMES
AND SILENT CHIMES

G Fmaj7 (1 Strum)
FLOATING THROUGH THE AIR
CREATING MOMENTS FAR TOO RARE

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
JUST QUIET TIMES
WITH SILENT CHIMES
OH THE QUIET TIMES

VERSE: 2

HEAR YOUR PULSE , FEEL IT RISE
THE BOSS JUST SET ANOTHER DEADLINE
THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE, WILL IT EVER END?
POP ANOTHER PILL...GOTTA BE A SIGN
DRESSING UP IN THE NEW AGE.... JUST AIN'T MY SIZE
ALL THIS MESS...TIRED OF IT BEIN' MINE...TO: CHORUS


CHORUS 2 :

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
OH....QUIET TIMES
AND SILENT CHIMES

G Fmaj7 (1 Strum)
RIPPING THE NITE AIR
CREATING MOMENTS FAR TOO RARE

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
JUST QUIET TIMES
WITH SILENT CHIMES
OH THE QUIET TIMES




VERSE: 3

DRIVE TO SURVIVE ON ANOTHER FREEWAY
AND SCREAMING KIDS....ALL IN THE BACK
SAME OLE' ROUTINE ..... ON EACH NEW DAY
GET 'EM HERE, GET 'EM THERE...JUST BE EVERWHERE
PATIENCE THESE DAYS...I SURE DO LACK
THE REAR VIEW MIRROR...ALL I DO IS STARE...TO: CHORUS

CHORUS 2 :

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
OH....QUIET TIMES
AND SILENT CHIMES

G Fmaj7 (1 Strum)
RIPPING THE NITE AIR
CREATING MOMENTS FAR TOO RARE

Fmaj7(1 Strum) Cm7 (1 Strum)
JUST QUIET TIMES
WITH SILENT CHIMES
OH THE QUIET TIMES
