I've gone for too long
Living like I'm not alive
So I'm gonna 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 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
You'll lie
We'll get it right this time (This time)
Let's leave this all behind
Oh, I will get it right this time
It's not faith if you're using your eyes
Oh, I...

Well I've gone for too long
Living like I'm not alive
So I'm gonna 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 you
If you use your eyes
If you use your eyes
If you use your eyes

    General Comment:i think this song is about a relationship where both of them have doubts, but shes saying, i know if we stay together its going to save us, so im not giving up and im not letting you do that either.

    this is my favorite song lyrically on the cd.
    its a great song about keeping strong and not giving up because of something stupid.
    i loveeee it. =]

    General Comment: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 tried to patch things up again
    So count my tears and kill these fears
    But have I told you? Have I?

    this is like saying that she knows she has messed up and done the wrong thing.

    It's not faith if, if you use your eyes
    Oh, I will get it right this time (this time)
    Let's leave this all behind
    Oh, I will get it right this time
    It's not faith if you're using your eyes
    Oh, I...


    obvious christian!!!!
    and that she is starting over her walk with christ.
    maybe that was the miracle.
    hmm...

    General Comment:I think it is rediculous how all of you think only one of you is right.
    All of you are right with your oppinions on the meaning of this song but wrong in thinking its the only way anyone could or should interpret it.
    I personally have looked at it in the christian and secular way. No song can have just one meaning around the world. Depending on ones mood or waht they are going through in life it could be your coming to or back to God or working out a relationship.
    And word to the wise people...even God dislikes a smart ass know it all. Makes him look bad

    General Comment:Sounds like she's saying
    'I've realised nothing is ever going to be perfect, but I can keep trying to make it better. I'm not gonna give up. Things hurt, but that's okay, it's normal, I want you to realise this too.'
    I think it's an amazing song.
    Both lyrically and the music itself.
    I love it so much.
    I could be wrong..

    General Comment:it seems as though the person in the song is started over, starting from scratch and wants to do things right this time.

    General Comment:seems like she's been waiting for something for a long time, it isn't happening, so she needs a miracle for it to happen, and she's not gonna give up

    General Comment:I actually think that this is much like When It Rains.

    About a person who has been in a bad situation/depressed, [or along those lines] and pulled through.

    They can see that someone they love [friend/family etc.] going through a difficult time and giving up on themselves, but the other person is not gonna give up.
    It's as if they're saying don't give up, you'll pull through, even if it seems you never will, just keep going and you'll make it, like I did..
    Maybe?
    I think that.
    But obviously it is open to interpretation and depends on what the listener has expeienced in their life as they are likely to link it to a certain thing that has happened to them.
