Silver Lining
Clint Lowery Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh I'm so amazed
What we do, what we say
Where we go, how we change
I kinda feel betrayed
Part of me wants to die
When I carry this around, insane

Well at least we're not the same
What keeps us all up at night
Will follow you into the grave
Some things will never change

I swear to God, you should come around
They take me in and spit me out
What do you care, if I'm coming down
On your way up

I wanna be your silver lining
I wanna be your only answer

You know I'm not ashamed
I let the demons cry so loud they give out
I don't feel out of place
That part of me will survive
If I keep you all around, insane

Well at least I'm not afraid
What gives you all the right
To follow me into the flames
Some things are meant to be

I swear to God, you should come around
They take me in and spit me out
What do you care, if I'm coming down
On your way up

I wanna be your silver lining
I wanna be your only answer
I wanna be your silver lining
I wanna be your only answer

I wanna feel it, the silver lining
So give me more than I could ask for

I'm not afraid of anything
Oh no I promise you won't
You'll never see this side of me
'Till you can't get what you want from me

I wanna be your silver lining
I wanna be your only answer
I wanna be your silver lining
I wanna be your only answer





I wanna feel it, the silver lining
So give me more than I could ask for

I love how everyone is doing solo and really rocking it out and everyone is supporting each other and not shaming them for doing solo projects like some other bands we all know that have done that! They support each other. You go Clint well done๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—โค

@apanapandottir205

Was a big fan of Sevendust back in the early 2000's. Awesome that he's still going. Great voice.

@derekdouglas910

Please check out all their stuff, they have put out new albums on average, every 2 years since their beginning and they're all really good albums too.

@Lbcyoung

Their last albums were masterpieces, I'm sorry they're so underrated

@residentvania7733

They have never stopped. Inside and outside the band. Even Morgan Rose has a solo Ep that is amazing. Don't close your ears to the old 7D only. Because if you do your missing some fine ass music. The newest 7D album is one of my favorites.

@SandraGarcia-ul7iq
