Silver lining

Submitted by GabriHylian on 30.11.2017

Silver lining (English) — The brighter side of misfortune; the hopeful side of a situation. The complete idiom is "Every cloud has a silver lining". (I felt the need to put it in this shortened form because in everyday speech as well as in most songs the full idiom is not quoted, making it harder for the algorithm to identify and help translators/readers to get to know this expression).

"Silver lining" in lyrics

What has gone
Is not necessary, necessary

They told me that every cloud has a silver lining
And there is no time where this will ever change
Come closer, come come

Daddy Yankee - Follow me and I follow you

So in case I’m mistaken,
I just wanna hear you say you got me baby

In my mind when she’s not right there beside me
And I go crazy cause here isn’t where I wanna be
