Dido – Quiet Times

“It’s hard enough to see the world as it is and hold on to my faith without these quiet times.” The story is about someone who has lost a loved one and needs time to breath and focus. After meditating on this and thinking of a need for quiet time, she decides “gonna have to run away, I’m sure that I belong some other place.” Excellent portrayal of emotions – scattered, confused desires (be still and quiet or run away), a song that will help others know they are not alone. This will be one of those songs that will last far beyond its creation because of its ability to speak for those who are unable to form words for what’s going on deep inside. “I miss you, I want you, but I can’t have you even when you’re here.” Dido
