Silver Lining Lyrics

by Bonnie Raitt

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

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 darkest deep
Fools and their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep

Step into the silence
Take it in your own two hands
And scatter it like diamonds all across these lands

Blaze it in the morning
Got to wear it like an iron skin
Only things worth living for innocence and magic, amen

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 so deep
Fools and their madness all around
Know that the light don't sleep
Know that the light don't sleep
