Silver Lining What good

Silver Lining

 

What good is this life if I aint gonna live

What goods a second chance if I never forgive?

watch me take advantage of the time that I got

I can forgive  but I aint never forgot.

 

Ya see my daddy ain’t never abandoned me

So can’t no shady thugs take advantage of me.

And can’t no dude EVER lay they hands on me

I know that my God got better plans for me

 

Ya see, I’,m just like my Mama I stays real strong

It rains on me but I weather the storm

Cuz our pockets were empty but I still got fed

Never had no money we had love instead

 

She always there cryin when I took the stage

Never missed a show never showed up late

My grass aint always green  but somehow it grows

Don’t got all the answers but somehow I know

 

Every Cloud has a silver lining

I aint gonna chase the rain away

Im gonna wait for my silver lining

Be patient til I’m blown away. 

 

I’m takin a look at the life I lived

And any hurtful shit that I already did

Not hung up on the past I got my future to see

And be there for the people who have been there for me.

 

Strike down like lightenin if you mess with the fam

And that don’t change for noone cuz I am who I am

I took a look in the mirror and I like what I see

A strong black woman starin back at me.

 

 don’t always get a rainbow when the rain pours down

Always been the kid from the other side of town

My parents had to sweat to allow me this chance

I’ll never let no one shake my confidence

 

So when you hear me on the radio don’t be surprised

Me blarin from your speakers like I fantasized

My grass aint always green but somehow it grows

Don’t have all the answers but somehow I know

 

Every Cloud has a silver lining

I aint gonna chase the rain away

Im gonna wait for my silver lining

Be patient til I’m blown away.
