Flashes of gold skies
There is blue hue all around
Evening falls soft
Winters hues touch deep the soul
Frosty fingers spread magic.

Oh, I don’t care, I gotta celebrate the moment
Gotta own it before it blows away, blows away
Oh, beat my snare, I got a burning in my heart when it’s dark
Can you feel the flame, feel the flame

But there’s a part of me
That used to go and hide in peace
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in
And now all I see, so many possibilities
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in

But oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

Step by step, I got power in the way that I walk
And I’m here to stay, here to stay
And I feel so high, like a rocket in the sky
And I got nothing in my way, in my way

But there’s a part of me
That used to go and hide in peace
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in
And now all I see, so many possibilities
But now I’m touching the ceiling
I’ve found something to believe in

But oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)
There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

I’ve got a feeling, I’m shining gold (I’m shining gold)
I’ve got a feeling (I’ve got a feeling)
I’m shining gold (I’m shining gold)
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side (I’m shining gold)
I’m shining gold
Oh, I got a feeling that I’m gonna be alright
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

There’s nothing better than to hear the sound, hear the sound
The sound of thunder when I hit the ground
Oh, I got a feeling that tonight is on my side
(I got it, I got it, I’m gold, I’m shining so bright, yeah I’m gold)

Next up Silver Lining by Mt. Joy. just a fantastic song .

.

Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line
Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line

My brother, let the heart just eat
Drink your wine, smoke your weed
My brother, let the heart still beat

And wear your silver lining
Wear it close to your skin

But if it’s the drugs, the women, the wine, the weed
The love that took everything I own
Just take it oh oh oh
And tell the ones you love you love them
And teach only what you know, and oh
You better know it well

We drove from coast to coast
Down in New Orleans
Where the levees broke

You were tripping
I was driving
You were running
I was hiding
And you know I know how that feels
Don’t get cheated kid
Just sweep from your heels
And if you get carried away
Let the music play you through the pain

And wear that silver lining
Wear it close to your skin

But if it’s the drugs, the women, the wine, the weed
The love that took everything I own
Just take it oh oh oh
And tell the ones you love you love them
Teach only what you know, and oh
You better know it well

Up on the mountain
Caught on the red light
Up on the mountain
Caught on the rail line

Silver Lining lyrics © Mt. Joy Publishing.

Mt. Joy have debuted their new song “Silver Lining,” an attempt by guitarist/vocalist Matt Quinn to find some solace after tragedy — in this case, the friends in his community lost too young to drugs, and the devastation they left behind. It’s a compellingly open-hearted piece of songwriting that exemplifies why Mt. Joy have found such a passionate following in little more than a year as a band.

Mt. Joy is a five-piece indie rock band based in Los Angeles with roots in Philadelphia. They consist of members Matt Quinn (vocals, guitar), Sam Cooper (guitar), Sotiris Eliopoulos (drums), Jackie Miclau (keyboards), and Michael Byrnes (bass). The band debuted in 2016 with their single “Astrovan”, recorded in Los Angeles by Quinn, Cooper, and Byrnes. This was followed up in 2017 by the trio of singles “Sheep”, “Cardinal”, and “Silver Lining”, with “Silver Lining” eventually charting at the top spot of the BillboardTriple A charts. On March 2, 2018, they released their debut eponymous studio album. Between the next two years, Mt. Joy performed at festivals and on tour as support acts, as well as headlining a North American and European tour. After a tour with The Lumineers was cut short due to COVID-19, Mt. Joy released their second studio album, Rearrange Us on June 5, 2020.[

 Their third studio album, Orange Blood, is set to release on June 17, 2022.

Last up is Rich from Maren Morris. I like this song because it’s simply fun and easy listening and fun lyrics!

.

Rich” is a song recorded by American country music singer Maren Morris for her major-label debut album, Hero (2016). Morris co-wrote the song with Jessie Jo Dillon and Laura Veltz, and co-produced the track with busbee. It was released to American country radio on February 12, 2018 through Columbia Nashville as the album’s fourth and final single.

“Rich” blends elements of country music with reggae and hip hop for a sound that “transcends classification.” The song features “laid-back, breezy” vocals in the verses and a “singalong” chorus. Lyrically, the song details ways that a man has done Morris wrong, framed by hypothetical dollar values for these infractions that would result in Morris being rich. According to critics, Morris’s delivery expresses “hip-hop bravado” and a “sly wit” as she toys with unconventional rhymes.

Happy Sunday Everyone 💜.
