I used to hide away
And only try to save myself
From falling in love,
Or staying up on the shelf
I was afraid to walk
The streets alone or by your side
Just waiting for something
That could save my life

There's no way out
Stuck inside my head now
Headed for a breakdown
When I should be headed for the door

Cause I found out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
And I know You can't hide
It's the shot heard 'round the world

Lights out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
But baby don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

If we could light up
Every street with our cellular phones
Then maybe we can save ourselves
Or maybe we won't

Well it doesn't even matter
If we got no plan
As long as your holding
On to somebody's hand

Because there's no way out
Stuck inside my head now
But I know we can break out
If we can all just step outside the door

Cause I found out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
And I know You can't hide
It's the shot heard 'round the world

Lights out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
But baby don't cry
It's the shot heard 'round the world

I'm gonna kiss the sky tonight
Maybe You should try it
I'm gonna learn to fly tonight
And You're invited

Cause all the things that we become
Are making me so fuckin numb
And this time I have had enough
Goodbye!
And say hello to the end of the world

I found out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
And I know You can't hide
It's the shot around the world

Lights out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
But baby don't cry
It's the shot around the world

Lights out
There's no such a thing as
A miracle!
A miracle!
But baby don't cry
It's the shot around the world

    this song is about the world ending, its one of my favourite songs, and it was actually origionally by lancaster, a band that martin, dooey, and beef played in before blg, but it was a bit heavier then, so they cahnged it up a bit, and used it for love drunk :) its also John's favourite song!
