Jazmine Sullivan - Silver Lining Lyrics

I may not have a reason to think so
I know, but today I think I'm gone win the lottery
Or maybe when I finally get home
That job I need they gone call to hire me
So if I'm looking up don't mind me
But I can't be, (I just can't be) I can't be down no more
And if you don't know where to find me

I'm out looking
I'm looking for the silver lining
The silver lining, and I don't know where
But I'm hoping I'll find it
I'm looking for the silver lining

Everybody's looking at me like I'm crazy
And I am maybe, but my bed is changing right now
Hands up cause motherfucker this is a stick up
But don't be scared cause listen I ain't come to hurt nobody
I just want all your money in your wallet out your pocket

So if I'm looking up don't mind me
But I can't be, (I just can't be) I can't be down no more
And if you don't know where to find me
I'm out looking
I'm looking for the silver lining
The silver lining, and I don't know where
But I'm hoping I'll find it
I'm looking for the silver lining

Listen I'm a good citizen, I'm not a criminal
But I ain't holding up off of the minimum
I got kids that I gotta support
But doing this was my last resort
But you can't be me when you've got mouths to feed
When you've got bills to pay and rent is late
I bet you'd do what you have to

  82. Compton CutiE

    I don't know if it's me, but seems as if REAL music like this don't get played in the radio? And it's a shame! Well maybe KJLH or Sirius satellite radio something like that. But ask the other Major stations only want the RATCHET music.

    Again, I must say...this is the album of the decade. (along with Kendrick Lamar's new album...REAL MUSIC STILL LIVES!) Music that speaks to the soul, represents the human experience...music that is true artistry!  Thank you Jasmine!

  89. promisemethis

    Her music melts my heart. From the music alone you can feel her passion

    Queen Jee

    it's spiritual


    Tarajee Pleas yes it is!!! Her Masterpiece is a song i think every woman needs to hear
