Quiet Nobility

from by F&M

lyrics

The only place we’re treated equal is in a line at a bottle depot
Think that through I won’t explain it, the logic’s easy if you want it to
Prefer my beer in a tiny cup, makes me feel like I’m not in a rush
People watching for several hours is not wasted time, it’s not wasted time
There’s dignity in winter, a luxury in solitude
I sang that once I still believe it, but I’ll change the tune and pawn it off
Prefer my wine in a shining glass, in a darkened room but that too shall pass
I miss the ocean with all its sound, I miss the smell, we miss the sea
We’re craving gentility, discernment, a quiet nobility
We’re looking for takers, those craving the same thing
Sunsets come and sunsets go there all the same if you believe it so
That’s not my thought it never was but I’ll dress it up and pass it off
prefer my scotch in a crystal glass, makes the world seem a little less crass
There’s a joyous feel in a dim lit pub, a calm content, it’s heaven sent
It’s heaven sent and I’m almost there, almost there, almost there.
