My Miracle

My Miracle

Don’t know why I look behind myself 
Just to see where I’m coming from. 
And sometimes I get stuck in between 
What I’ve been through and what’s to come. 
Some day I’d love to grab hold of that 
Merry-go-round’s shiny brass ring. 
Oh I believe I will receive 
Much more than I’m asking. 

And here I am with eyes wide open. 
Waiting for my miracle.       
Been a long road to hell and back, you know, 
But I’m not cynical. 
Everybody’s searching for something. 
Everybody’s looking for a thrill. 
Everybody’s just running in circles. 
While I keep waiting for my miracle.       

And if there ever comes a time when 
I wouldn’t care at all any more, 
You know I would pack my bags 
And set my sights for some distant sandy shore. 
I never give up praying for blessings, 
And I never step out of line. 
Oh God, I believe this is real, 
But would you please send me a sign? 

And here I am with eyes wide open. 
Waiting for my miracle.       
Been a long road to hell and back, you know, 
But I’m not cynical. 
Everybody’s searching for something. 
Everybody’s looking for a thrill. 
Everybody’s just running in circles. 
While I keep waiting for my miracle.     

Everybody’s searching for something. 
Everybody’s looking for a thrill. 
Everybody’s just running in circles. 
While I keep waiting... I keep waiting for my miracle.

Songwriter's Notes: This is the story of a man who takes a close look into himself, and discovers that despite living an exemplary life, he still awaits his "big break." And so he seeks help from above, asking for a miracle... his miracle. The song is set in an easygoing, light pop/ballad style, with touches of country instrumentation throughout.
