My Silver Lining


I’ve never done this before, but I’ve been mentally blocked up and need to get things rolling again. I haven’t put anything out here this year. At all. You know this, Frazzled Followers (even after 3 years it still feels strange to be able to say I have “followers”…thank you for that! <3) and we've all seen others writing projects fall by the wayside like so much roadkill, but I'm trying to rally.

So, something different. This song. I heard it a few months back and for the first time in a very long time, I identified with a piece of music on multiple levels. It keeps coming up and it keeps feeling spot on. I'm not going to try to nail down why, because we all know what a rambling trip down the rabbit hole THAT can be and I’m just not ready for that. I feel like it says things I've been thinking and if I wasn't such a slacker and had a personal mission statement, I'd probably STILL be a slacker and just adopt these lyrics as mine.

-still slacking (Sort of.)

My Silver Lining
By First Aid Kit

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
