Silver Lining Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Take this silver lining
Keep it in your own sweet head
And shine it when the night is burning red
Shine it in the twilight
Shine it on the cold, cold ground
Shine it till these walls come
Tumbling down
Verse 2
We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope
Now can you tell me why
Time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Verse 3
Step into the silence
Take it in your own two hands
And scatter it like diamonds
All across these lands, yeah yeah yeah
Blaze it in the morning
Wear it like an iron skin
Only things worth living for
Innocence and magic, amen
Verse 4
We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope
Now can you tell me why
Time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Falls in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Verse 5
We were born with our eyes wide open
So alive with wild hope
Now can you tell me why
Time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Know that the light don't sleep
Time after time
They drag you down
Down in the darkness deep
Fools in their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Know that the light don't sleep
