"Miracle" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett and Nate Mendel....
Crazy but I believe this time
Begging for sweet relief
A blessing in disguise
Dying behind these tired eyes
I've been losing sleep
Please come to me tonight

Hands on a miracle
I've got my hands on a miracle
Believe it or not, hands on a miracle
And there ain't no way
That you'd it away

Everything that we survived
It's gonna be alright
Just lucky we're alive
Got no vision I've been blind
Searching every where
You're right here in my sight

Hands on a miracle
I've got my hands on a miracle
Believe it or not, hands on a miracle
And there ain't no way
Let you take it away

Hands on a miracle
I've got my hands on a miracle
Believe it or not, hands on a miracle
I've got my hands on a miracle
And there ain't no way
Let you take it away
Take it away

    General Commenthere are the right lyrics:
    Crazy, but I believe this time
    Begging for sweet relief
    A blessing in disguise
    I'm dying behind these tired eyes
    I've been losing sleep
    Please come to me tonight

    Hands on a miracle
    I got my hands on a miracle
    Believe it or not
    Hands on a miracle
    And there ain't no way I'll let you take it away

    Everything that we've survived
    It's gonna be alright
    Just lucky we're alive
    Got no vision
    I've been blind
    Searching everywhere
    You're right there in my sight

    General CommentIts got to be about having a child

    "Dying behind these tired eyes
    I've been losing sleep"

    Keeping him up all night

    "
    It's gonna be alright
    Just lucky we're alive"

    The child makes him feel lucky to be alive.


    "
    Hands on a miracle
    I got my hands on a miracle
    Leave it or not, hands on a miracle
    And there ain't no way
    Let you take it away"

    Holding it for the first time.

    It's a great song, i hope they still preform it and it hasn't been totally forgotten like most foo songs get.

    General CommentThe correct lyrics provided by Gracenote and posted on the MTV website are as follows:

    "Crazy but I'm relieved this time
    Begging for sweet relief of blessing in disguise
    Dying behind these tired eyes
    I've been losing sleep, please come to me tonight

    Hands on a miracle, I got my hands on a miracle
    Leave it or not, hands on a miracle
    And there ain't no way, let you take it away

    Everything that we survived
    Its gonna be alright, just lucky we're alive
    Got no vision I've been blind
    Searchin' everywhere, you're right here in my sights

    Hands on a miracle, I got my hands on a miracle
    Leave it or not, hands on a miracle
    And there ain't no way, let you take it away

    Hands on a miracle, I got my hands on a miracle
    Leave it or not, hands on a miracle
    I got my hands on a miracle
    And there ain't no way, let you take it away

    Take it away, take it away"

    I believe it is a song for his wife, aka the mother of his child.

    General CommentThis is the morning after "Best of You". The singer has calmed down and isn't as frustrated with the person he loves. In "Miracle" he is gently asking her to come to him. Just as in "Best of You" he isn't giving up "I swear I'll never give in, I refuse", in this song he says the same thing "There ain't no way I'll et you take it away". Clearly, the person he loves and wants to be with is resisting for some reason (another person in her life, I assume). But he is lamenting that this relaionship he has with her is too much of a miracle for them not to be together.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. I’m surprised there aren’t that many comments on it. It’s also one of Dave’s favourites on the album. It’s extra special because John Paul Jones (from led zeppelin) plays piano on it (Dave’s a huge led zeppelin fan – he sold his soul to the band when he was 17).
    I have no idea what the meaning is. Maybe he’s just referring to his whole life in general and everything amazing that he’s been part of from nirvana to foos and how it just feels like he’s got his hands on a miracle.

    General CommentThis song Is sooooo soooothing,....

    I never knew Dave could consistently write good slow styled music like this.....

    It's a shame the only way you can hear it is on the album, I think the radio could use a slow Foo's song every once in a while,

    General Commentthis song has recently been released as a single. I was surprised when I had first heard it playing on the radio. However, that was a few months ago and I haven't heard it played on the radio since then. i don't think it charted yet either. It's a shame since its such a good song.
