Story

Silver is the name of a talented, creative woman who struggled with her demons of regret, self-doubt, disappointment, and failure until she could no longer bear it. This is a song for her, and for all those souls who simply could not find a way to stay here...

Lyrics

You were so ready but you didn’t know what for
You looked so pretty leaning up against the door
An invitation would have made you feel all right
You never saw how many times they stopped on by
Who taught you that you had to hide all your beauty?
Who taught you that to suffer this was your duty?
You had to lose with every step you made
You had to prove this was your fate
(oh) Silver, yeah Silver What the hell were you thinking?
To have believed your art was something relevant
To have conceived all of the time had been well spent
I’m sorry what we gave just wasn’t quite enough
But how could we retrieve black diamonds in the rough?
Who taught you not to say goodbye before leaving?
Who prophesied your absence here was relieving?
Not a dry eye up in this whole place
Not a smile worn on any face (repeat chorus)
Who taught you that you had to hide all your beauty?
Who taught you that to suffer this was your duty?
You had to lose with every step you made
You had to prove this was your fate (repeat chorus)
Oh, how we miss you now…
