"Silver Lining" as written by and James Bauer-mein Adam Anderson....
There's a storm on the streets, but you still don't run
Watching and waiting for the rain to come
And these words wouldn't keep you dry
Or wipe tears from an open sky,
But I know, but I know, but I know I'm right

I won't let you drown, when the water's pulling you in
I'll keep fighting, I'll keep fighting
The rain's going to follow you wherever you go
The clouds go black and the thunder rolls
And I see lightning
I see lightning

When the World surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining
I will try to save you, cover up the grey
With silver lining

Now there's no way back from the things you've done
I know it's too late to stop the setting sun
You see the shadows in the distant light,
And it's never gonna be alright
And you know, and you know, and you know I'm right

And I won't get left behind, when the walls come tumbling in
I'll keep climbing, I'll keep climbing
The rain's going to follow you wherever you go
The clouds go black and the thunder rolls
And I see lightning
I see lightning

When the World surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining
I will try to save you, cover up the grey
With silver lining

When the World surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining
I will try to save you, cover up the grey
With silver lining

(Silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver)
Paint the sky, paint the sky
(Silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver)

    General CommentAnother good song - are there any bad ones by Hurts?!

    Pretty simple I think in terms of meaning. Just about him helping his partner through tough times. Love the imagery in this one, especially the walls tumbling in and climbing over them.

    General CommentI think that it's about recovering from some terrible things someone important to you has done. The song is told from the friend's perspective, who is trying to add the silver lining to the situation.

    While he is not grasping on delusions, his friend's acts were very bad, he is telling him that he will be there to help him fight with his guilt and the repecursions of his actions.
