LYRICS: Remember when I met you on the park bench And you smiled at me and said that we should be friends Cause I was drowning there upon the dry land You sat beside and put your hand in my hand So you picked me up and you put me in a straight line You looked at me and you said that it would be fine
If we take the time to find the silver lining We can make these crying waters into wine And well be alright And well be alright They, They don’t know our hearts And they won’t break us apart We , we don’t have so much But we all we need is us
Remember when I found you on the cold ground You were looking up as the sky was looking down And you said that you were jealous of the bright stars I said darling you’ll be brighter than they all are And then I picked you up and put you in a straight line I looked at you and said that it would be fine
If we take the time to find the silver lining We can make these crying waters into wine And well be alright And well be alright 1,2,3,4 They, They don’t know our hearts And they won’t break us apart We , we don’t have so much But we all we need is us If we take the time to find the Silver Lining
Viper Alley, the concert of concerts: Lee DeWyze sings Silver Lining amidst a sea of glow sticks!
It was the concert of concerts. Fans came from near and far. Those attending the April 19th show at Viper Alley listed fans from Indonesia, Canada, Wisconsin, New York,Montana,Texas, Florida,Ohio, Missouri, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and I’m sure I missed a state or a country somewhere in there. But the point is that they traveled for many miles to the windy city of Chicago to watch Lee DeWyze perform his music on his home turf at Viper Alley.
Four years ago many of these people didn’t even know each other. Brought together by the love of DeWyze’s music they now call themselves friends and family. They stay at each others houses and they travel together. They are connected in real time by social media and they tweet real time show pictures and post video’s.
Knowing all of this it came as no surprise when one local Chicago fan, Annie (@DeWyzeFan6),told me she was going to purchase 300 glow sticks to hand out to concert goers as a surprise for Lee when he sang his new single, Silver Lining at the Viper Alley show FridaSurprised he was! Take a look at the following video’s where 300 glow sticks lite up the venue during Lee’s performance of Silver Lining!
Lee DeWyze, the “HEART” of his fandom (Marni Cook Photography)
“For a year,I wrote a whole album without a label. I was writing music just to write music. I wrote it for you guys. Every song.” #LeeDewyze
This Lee DeWyze quote was posted on Twitter by @MareKatsip and when I read it I realized that it really sums up what makes Lee DeWyze so special and why fans remain endured to him regardless where the road takes him.
This fandom came together three years ago with a common love of Lee DeWyze’s music.They became friends, travel companions,Twitter buddies,Lee DeWyze promoters and though not traditional and no one is related they call themselves “FamiLEE” and at the heart of this is Lee DeWyze.,
They say “a picture is worth a thousand words” so take a look at these amazing fans captures taken at the recent Viper Alley show in Chicago by mega fan and photographer Marni Cook @CanadianCookie3) and you will understand……
