Quiet - Matilda The Musical

	  		
Intro:
Gm , G# (x2) 

verse 1 

Gm 
Have you ever wondered, well I have. 
               G# 
About how when I say, say red, for example. 
                  Gm 
There's no way of knowing if red 
Gm 
Means the same thing in your head 
   G# 
As red means in my head. When someone says red 

Verse 2 

  Gm                                          G#           
It's as if we are traveling at, almost the speed of light 
G# 
And we're holding a light 
                      Gm 
That light will still travel away from us 
                      G# 
At the full speed of light, which seems right in a way 
                    Cm 
What I'm trying to say, I'm not sure 
                          C 
But I wonder if inside my head 
                                             C# 
I'm not just a bit different from some of my friends 

Eb                    
These answers that come into my mind unbidden 
C#                                   C 
These stories delivered to me fully written! 
         C#                                      C 
And when everyone shouts like they seem to like shouting 
                             C# 
The noise in my head is incredibly loud! 
                                           C 
And I just wish they'd stop, my Dad and my Mum. 
                                               C# 
And the telly and stories would stop just for once! 
                                            Fm 
And I'm sorry, I'm not quite explaining it right. 
         Cm                                    C# 
But this noise becomes anger and the anger is light 
                                         Fm 
And its burning inside me would usually fade. 
             C# 
But it isn't today! 
                     Fm 
And the heat and the shouting. 
        C# 
And my heart is pounding. 
        Fm 
And my eyes are burning 
     Eb                                Eb 
And suddenly everything, everything is... 

  
tabchorus
Fsus2 F Quiet C Bb Like silence, but not really silent. Bb Just that still sort of quiet. Bb F C Bb Like the sound of a page being turned in a book. Dm C Bb Or a pause in a walk in the woods. F C Quiet Bb Like silence, but not really silent. F C Bb Just that nice kind of quiet. Bb F C Bb Like the sound when you lie upside down in your bed. F C Bb Just the sound of your heart in your head.

Pre-Chorus Bb And though the people around me. Bbm Their mouths are still moving. F Gm7 The words they are forming, C Cannot reach me anymore!
tabchorus
F And it is quiet. C And I am warm. Bb Like I've sailed. F C Bb Into the eye of the storm.
