The Lyrics to “Go Quietly”

Pat, Mel, Miro and Kirsty

I know it sounds really lame when someone gushes over a song and implores everyone to listen to it.

I know.

And another thing that is “lame” is asking someone to tell them the lyrics to their song. But I just loved this song so much and it was stuck in my head all the time and I was trying to sing along but all I could articulate was a bunch of “wahh, wha didsnd siljdlijlcx” and so I tried to google it. But of course that was futile — a band from Brisbane was hardly going to attract the attention of all those lyric-decipherers locked in some bunker in America working out what Chris Brown is actually saying.

But I went, “fuck it!” I know who sung it — i’ll just be a dork and ask. And I wrote to Mel and she was happy to help. I feel like such a “fan” but that doesn’t feel too bad.

And these words make the song so, so much better — and not just cause I can sing along now…

So holy shit — this song by Little Scout is my new favourite song and I will say this to you just once (unlike Molly Meldrum) “do yourself a favour”.

And here are the lyrics:

Go Quietly
An action, for the start is here
I know how to get there but I need a gentle shove

Take care to see
An actor, for the start is near
I know how to get there but I need a gentle shove

Another shade to fill the day, aloud
Another feather echo makes the sound
Another shake to fill the day alone

Take care by sea
An anchor for the heart is here
I know how to get there but I need a gentle shove

Take it from me
An actor, form the part hastily
I know how to get there but I need a gentle shove

Another shade to fill the day, aloud
Another feather echo makes the sound
Another shake to fill the day alone

Go Quietly
An action, for the start is near
But I know how to get there
