David Cook – Silver lyrics

When writing your history,
I will always be a footnote
A distant memory
A warning sign of mistakes made
The kind that you learn from
This song is the best of me
Taking pills for solemn motive
A better side of me, an open mind
For mistakes made
The kind that you burn from

So take this small confession as my price to pay
I've never been the kind to let go
But before you up and walk away
I'm miserable without you, you know
This silver leaves me longing for gold
Second place has never carried me home
Second place has never carried me home

This song is so out of key
I'm trying harder just to even
These memories of you
A warning sign of regression
The kind you never learn from
This song is the melody
Meant to show you a little more than
A better history, an open sky
Of redemption
The kind you always burn from

So take this small confession as my price to pay
I've never been the kind to let go
But before you up and walk away
I'm miserable without you, you know
This silver leaves me burning for gold
Second place has never carried me home
Second place has never carried me (home, home, home, home)
It never carried me (home, home, home, home)

    Now, that is a sad song.
    I think the song is about loving someone who wants gold and all you can ever be is silver. No use trying so damn hard to be somebody else that the other person wants you to be 'cause in the end they still love someone else and not you. So let that person go, because being silver will never make them forget that what they really want is gold.

    Yeah, probably this is a sad song, but I don't wanna see it like that.
    This is a story about two people. He has hurt her by being "the worse side" of her and being the villain in their relationship (for example he didin't give enough time for her and her needs and he didn't seem to care enough; it doesn't necessarily mean he did something, I think it's about he didn't do something). So, the girl got fed up, decided that he wasn't what she needed, but now when she has made him just another friend of hers he realizes he wants her back. "This silver leaves me longing for gold"; he doesn't want just stay watching her and spendin' good time with her, he wants their former relationship back and he hopes she can give him another shot. He sings "I'm miserable without you you know" and "I'm never been the kind to let go", so he can't move on without her by his side. He knows that he's not perfect, he knows he's the worse of them two, but still he is trying to fix things by this song.

    Now, that song is sad.
    I have like ten songs from analog heart and I listen to them over and over. Am I weird for that?
    Anyway, for me the song is about letting go of somebody who wants gold and all you can ever be is silver. No use trying so damn hard to be what the other person wants you to be because in the end, they still love somebody else and not you.
