There's a storm on the streets, but you still don't run
Watching and waiting for the rain to come.
And these words wouldn't keep you dry
Or wipe tears from an open sky,
But I know, but I know, but I know I'm right

And I won't let you drown, when the water's pulling you in
I'll keep fighting, I'll keep fighting.
The rain's going to follow you wherever you go.
The clouds go black and the thunder rolls
And I see lightning, and I see lightning

When the World surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining.
I will try to save you, cover up the grey
With silver lining

Now there's no way back from the things you've done
I know it's too late to stop the setting sun.
You see the shadows in the distant light,
And it's never going to be alright
And you know, and you know, and you know I'm right

And I won't get left behind, when the walls come tumbling in
I'll keep climbing, I'll keep climbing
The rain's going to follow you wherever you go.
The clouds go black and the thunder rolls
And I see lightning, and I see lightning

When the World surrounds you, I'll make it go away
Paint the sky with silver lining
I will try to save you, cover up the grey
With silver lining (x2)

Silver, silver, silver, silver, silver, silver lining,
Deep blue sky, deep blue sky

    It means that no matter where you go your problems will follow and words don't always wipe away the tears. And humans make mistakes and we have to live with them and just try to fight our way out.

    I love the dark power of the hurts. I believe the song talks of their desire to re-start their romance, regardless of the past faults in their relationship, because his love for her means they will stay strong together.

    I think it's talking about him saving someone from their past, in other words, standing up for them no matter what they've done.
