I've gone for too long living like I'm not alive
So I'm going to start over tonight
Beginning with you and I
When this memory fades
I'm gonna make sure it's replaced
With chances taken
Hope embraced
And I have I told you

I'm not going
Cause I've been waiting for a miracle
And I'm not leaving
I won't let you
Let you give up on a miracle
When it might save you

We've learned to run from
Anything uncomfortable
We've tied our pain below and no one ever has to know
That inside we're broken
I try to patch things up again
To calm my tears and kill these fears
But have I told you, have I?

I'm not going
Cause I've been waiting for a miracle
And I'm not leaving
I won't let you
Let you give up on a miracle
When it might save you

It's not faith if, if you use your eyes
Oh why

Get it right this time (this time)
Let's leave this all behind
Oh why

We'll get it right this time
It's not faith if you're using your eyes
Oh why

I've gone for too long living like I'm not alive
So I'm going to start over tonight
Beginning with you and...

I don't want to run from anything uncomfortable
I just want, no
I just need this pain to end right here

I'm not going
Cause I've been waiting for a miracle
And I'm not leaving
I won't let you
Let you give up on a miracle
Cause it might save you

Yeah, it might save you
Oh, it might save you

It's not faith if, if you use your eyes
If you use your eyes
If you use your eyes

    No matter how bad you feel, keep hanging out to hope. It's always there if we allow it to be, and we should. A miracle will happen eventually if you keep on going through. Don't give up.

    Umm I think its about this guy getting a shot at something he loves and acoording to Hayley, she's trying to make him see it. I think that he knows he has a shot but he's afraid and Hayley is telling him " I'm not gonna let you give up on this." The faith part is how she's telling the guy to trust her, to close his eyes and trust her absolutely but he doesn't want to and so he song ends with her telling him "It's no faith if you use your eyes", to trust it fate and what will happen.

    This was my first song i snag for my choir and i had to give a def for it so here it is. This song means everyday there is something that happens that we won't know about until we experience something like that. Miracles happen everyday and if it wasn't for my miracle i wouldn't be alive. I was rebron at my real birth (if you know what i mean) and i live my life knowing that it was a miracle. Thankx Haley!!!
