Quiet Company
Words and Music by John Allee

So we grow and so we sow more seeds
So you know that’s how our future reads
Change is where we came from
The reason that we go
From summer sun
To sudden snow

And we are wiser now
We know how it’s meant to be
You know what’s best for you
And I know you’re what’s best for me
We’re a little bit older now
We bring a little more clarity
It’s just easier, you see
When I’m lying in your quiet company

So we fold into each other’s lives
Changing even as each day arrives
Taking what we’re given
But learning how to choose
The things we need
And need to lose

And we are wiser now
We know how it’s meant to be
You know what’s best for you
And I know you’re what’s best for me
We’re a little bit older now
We bring a little more clarity
It’s just easier, you see
When I’m lying in your quiet company

And nobody
Nobody but you
Can reach through me
Can reach right through me and pull me out
The way you do

And we are wiser now
We know how it’s meant to be
You know what’s best for you
And I know you’re what’s best for me
We’re a little bit older now
We’ve got a little more charity
It’s just easier, you see
When I’m lying in your quiet company
It’s easier in your quiet company
