My time right here you know, it's running out my days right here, you know, they're numbered now I need to go alone, know I'll find my way back home my time right here you know, it's running out I might go away this year when I get back I always know you'll be here to my friends and I you're a beacon of light you're a signal fire you're a stationary satellite the things I used to say I don't say now the things I want to do, they won't allow I know that I must go, but I'll find my way back home the things I used to say I don't say now CHORUS

Huntsville 03:37
You once said to me, I won't regret a thing and if you don't believe, I won't be losing sleep you cut assumptions at the knees when you made it known that this place you never want to leave you said you won't get bored though and if you feel this honestly you're on the record now you wanted this but I won't admit that I wanted it, too you once said to me, a change will come you'll see it's a hard sell to believe you sleep but never dream CHORUS so much time gets swept under this big bed that goes unmade as we sleep, as we slumber all our friends went their own way so cast off the disappointment, let's drown it in the bay as we sit and wait and wonder about this simple life we've made you once said to me, a change will come you'll see

I'm surrounded by a love that fills a humble space sweetly disheveled, yet somehow still in place summer nights under the moon every night - july and june sentimental, yeah I know if it comes in then out it goes lately a darkness has been building something might break on through the calm truth is, the silence makes it easy truth is a change we do not want feeling older by feeling young another memory come undone can't replace it, can't repair only want to feel I belong somewhere CHORUS no one knows until you put it on the line no one care until you put it on the line it's all dead air until you put it on the line
4.
An all-night restaurant, North Kildonan lukewarm coffee tastes like soap I trace your outline in spilled sugar killing time and killing hope this brand new strip mall chews on farmland, as we fish for someone to blame we communicate in questions, and all our answers sound the same under sputtering flourescents, after re-fills are re-filled negotiations at a stand-still, spoon and rolling saucer still if you ask how I got so bitter, I'll ask how you got so vain all our questions blur together, the answers always sound the same we can't look at one another so I'll say something thoughtful soon but I can't listen to the quiet so I hum this mindless tune I stole from some dumb country-rock star - I don't even know his name he’s like my stupid little questions: the answers always sound the same tell me why I have to miss you so tell me why we sound so lame we communicate in questions and all our answers sound the same

North Of 10 03:17
we are just two flightless morning doves one taste of love now we can't be alone hear the chimes sound out from a bell tower ring us through our supposed finest hour burden-free, oh boundless innocence! 1984 was just one year north of 10 I remember how it felt, it's how I want to feel again 5-600 workers, shirt and tie stare headlong into a gauzy light log a thousand entries, pull your load 1's and 0's don't unlock any door I know burden-free, oh boundless innocence! 1984 was just one year north of 10 I remember how it felt, it's how I want to feel again possiblities lean upon the infinite remember how I felt it's how I want to feel again remember how we felt it's how I want to feel again I want to feel again

oh mama, now tell me why do you doubt? way down way out how faint is the sound? on the hardwood now, I need sturdier ground laid down, lay down under me now just when you think it's OK just when you think it's alright just when you wonder 'could this get any better' it rears up again oh darlin', now you come to love this town way down, way out I'm still coming around CHORUS oh it takes all I have not to be here now but the fact of it is you're my only way out you're my only way out you're my only way out you're my only way out
7.
despite what you may have heard I hung onto every word you said now I can't recall your face here in this house I hear your name it's the same thing every day it's the way it goes sometimes there was no motive for crime at all but in time you'll be all right just on your own for a while you're such a sad thing, hey, but you're OK and you were out of your mind you can't be alone in tonight but we're all alone in time you know that I am right I sold you sinker and line...this time I fear where you will you into the arms of a princely soul future all flaxen and gold it's out with the new and in with the old our same old thing it's dying I was out of my mind your words cut through this time and stopped my heart tonight you knew you'd be all right you sold me sinker and line...this time
8.
are you kidding me? you can't be telling me the truth you're just a baby and I got the pictures to prove I got the pictures to prove all of us ghosts, we're just marching in some afterlife parade little wonder, you will be the one who's on display all my loneliness collecting in these bottles and ashtrays all of my fears I snuffed 'em out so you don't have to be afraid for the first time I ain't scared of what will be now it's so easy the path's right in front of me all of my scars they were once visible, now I hide them away little wonder, you'll still be the one to question me all of my loneliness collecting in your shadow, your shade my deepest thoughts I wrote 'em down 'cos I ain't got the guts to say I felt scared 'cos I have nothing good to teach but you don't care that much you're wide-eyed with belief in the little wonders you see each day a little wonder is smiling up at me

Fireside 03:39
early on, everything fits so perfect and pure you don't even question it this first time it's felt right in a while then you realize you've spent the night mesmerized by the fireside your light arrives shines out on our good, good life later on the fire's burning low don't want it fade so just throw a few more logs on things return at least for a while and with it the smile of not knowing why fireside you're light arrives shines out on our good, good life it's OK love, sometimes we just need reminders all at ease, lovely and true drawn to the light, your friends gather all around you spend their time in your energy field oh magnifique, is the quiet company CHORUS this is a reminder
10.
would you wait here by my side? until the morning turns to night? until I'm sleeping, until I'm quiet? if this is the way it's supposed to be then an answer or sign we'll see there will come a light I would wait here by your side 'til the morning turns to night 'til you were sleeping, 'til you were quiet if this is the way it's supposed to be then an answer or sign we'll see there will come a light if this is the way it's supposed to be then it's the way it's supposed to be there will come a light I know not all things can be changed you seem to know the right words to say I know you've done all you can do if you say it enough don't mean that it's true there will come a light...

about

"Quiet Company" is the 4th full-length album from indie-folk troubadour Scott Cooper. Beautiful but tense, balanced by intimate acoustic guitar, double-tracked vocals, and the occasional melodic outburst of strings, horns, drums, and vintage synths.
