Finding the proverbial silver lining in times of great challenge is the theme of Better Days. This song was written one day when the ice on the roads outside was 10 inches thick, full of ruts and sink holes and several weeks old. It felt like it would never go away, as did some of the difficult issues in my life at the time. I just wanted to escape on a magic carpet to a place where things would magically transform. But again the silver lining comes from that journey deep inside, and the “magic ride” can be taken at any time.
Take me on to your magic carpet
Take me up to the silver lining
Take me ‘or to the sweeter side of better days, better days
You and I we’re close
But wonder as do most
Will our love stand the test of time
I’ve got a feeling that we’ll be fine
We’ve seen some hard times through
It’s time to start anew
Lets’ wipe away those darker days
Don’t you know they just can’t stay
Looking deep inside
We found a place to fly
Can’t you see it in my eyes?
