Show Me My Silver Lining

Show Me My Silver Lining

When I first saw the theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday I could not help but think of a song that my nephew plays regularly. It is a track I have grown to enjoy myself. But it was a blogging friend of ours that brought this tune to this house. So I was convinced she was going to feature it today. I texted her and she said that she had a different song lined up, which allows me the great pleasure of sharing it with you.

The Swedish folk duo are First Aid Kit, and the song is “My Silver Lining“. There is something addictive about the rhythmic flow of this song. There is a mix of melancholy and euphoric energy that I find exceptional. I love reading through the lyrics these clever girls penned. Yes, I will stop there, as I want you to make your own mind up.

I don't want to wait anymore I'm tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there's music and there's laughter
I don't know if I'm scared of dying but I'm scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I've got to go
There's no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you've just gotta keep on keeping on
Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
Can't worry 'bout what's behind you or what's coming for you further up the road
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong
I try to keep on keeping on
Yeah I just keep on keeping on

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I've woken up in a hotel room, my worries as big as the moon
Having no idea who or what or where I am
Something good comes with the bad
A song's never just sad
There's hope, there's a silver lining
Show me my silver lining
Show me my silver lining

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I won't take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

I won't take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
