Quiet - Jonathan Reid Gealt

Beautiful, truthful lyrics. The composer is incredibly talented, he gives you everything you need and more. I love it.


What's the perfect balance
Between yelling too much
Or not yelling enough
So that people don't walk over you?
Is it a crime to just want to be nice?
To avoid confrontation
And show everyone a little respect?

Time after time
I find that I'm struggling
To tell you what's burning inside
A glimmer of hope
That you'll finally see..
Yet I remain quiet.

Look at my face
Don't you dare turn away
'Cause I'm losing my patience
Show me now you're the man
that I want to be with for the rest of my life
I have so much love to give you
Just open up your eyes
And you'll see

Time after time
I find that I'm struggling
To tell you
What's burning inside
A glimmer of hope
That you'll finally see...
Yet I remain quiet

I can't remain quiet anymore
No I was not built
To idly stand here
Letting you make my decisions
Based upon your point of view
You never allowed me
My own freedom
Well hear me now!

Show me now you're the man
that I want to be with
for the rest of my life
I have so much love to give you
Just open up your eyes
And you'll see

Time after time
I find that I'm struggling
To tell you
What's burning inside
A glimmer of hope
That's you finally see...
Still I remain...
Yes I...
I...
Can't remain quiet
Quiet.
