It's the quiet when you're far away from town
It's the quiet and the stillness of the ground
It's the night sky that reminds you that you're small
It's the stars and sounds and brilliance of it all
It gets you thinking
'Bout the time
You had it all

It's the quiet that stirs your aching soul
The quiet and the time that's had its toll
Ya get to hearing the sounds of the country air
You remember all the time that you spent there
Now it's late
The moon is waning
And it's you and the stars still here

In the quiet those memories flood your mind
The stillness in the air seems to stop the time
And all those years flew by you so fast
All the things that you loved are in the past
It comes upon you;
How much longer
Do you really have?

Now it's the quiet that sends you off to sleep
The quiet and the secrets you still keep
You wonder if the sun will come your way
Cause the night is only calm with the bright of day
But for now
The nighttime quiet
Is quite okay
