Every Silver Lining...

I posted these lyrics several months ago, and I'll post them again now.From time to time, this song comes back to me - and really speaks to my heart..


Must be getting early Clocks are running late Paint by number morning sky Looks so phony

Dawn is breaking everywhere Light a candle, curse the glare Draw the curtains I don’t care, cause It’s all right

I will get by, I will survive

I see you’ve got your list out Say your piece and get out Yes I get the gist of it, but It’s all right

Sorry that you feel that way The only thing there is to say Every silver lining’s got a Touch of grey

I will get by, I will survive

It’s a lesson to me The ables and the beggars and the theives. The ABC’s we all must face To try to keep a little grace

It’s a lesson to me The Deltas and the East and the Freeze The ABC’s we all think of To try to win a little love

I know the rent is in arrears The dog has not been fed in years It’s even worse than it appears But it’s all right

Cow is giving kerosene Kid can’t read at seventeen The words he knows are all obscene, but It’s all right

I will get by, I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits There’s really nothing much to it Whistle through your teeth and spit, ’cause It’s all right

Oh well a touch of grey Kinda suits you anyway, That was all I had to say, and It’s all right

We will get by,

We will survive.


That verse about the rent is real for me right now.

It's even worse than it appears but it's all right.

Oh well, a touch of grey kinda suits you anyway

I've thought for a long time that a "Touch of Grey" does kinda suit me.

It's in my mustache.

We press on...
