Quiet Company - If You Want - Songs for Staying In (2010)

Trying again… ‘cause it’s worth it, imho. First song I heard upon my return to home sweet home. Love the sentiment and the anthemic close. “It’s you and me, a nation of two. We’ll do what we please, we’ll love what we do.”

Lyrics.

“Lift my head out of my hands, and I’m begging you to say, ‘would you please take me home with you?’ I shudder to think of all the horrible things I could be if I’d never have held you. 

And if you want, we can go out tonight and be alone. And if you want, we can stay in tonight, be at home, let the whole wide world just worry about it’s own. It’s you and me. 

I’m sure I’ll give you plenty of reasons to leave but you won’t. No, you won’t leave me hanging. We spring from and return to the earth but in between, you will always belong to me. 

It’s you and me, a nation of two. Let’s do what we please, let’s love what we do.”

Quiet Company - You, Me & The Boatman (Truth Is, I’ve Been Thirsty My Whole Life)

“Because I don’t care about the past or future,
When this existence is probably all we have.
And so the lives we make are all that matter,
So let’s live to love and love to live.”

Sometimes you cannae help but just love those fun, but cheesey as fuck songs. :) 

Quiet Company-A Nation of Two

And I made an expedition through a country that’s not my own
Crossed the mountains and swam the rivers
Found we’re still alone.

And I came across the desert
Trying to make life a metaphor
But there was no one there to share my wisdom
So I moved along.

I thought if you really want, want to love somebody
It will cost you more than you have
I can guarantee you that.
