"Miracle" as written by and Hayley Nichole/farro Williams....
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 Commenti 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 CommentWe'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...

    General CommentI 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

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship, i'm going to go right ahead and assume that its from the girl's perspective, only because its sung by Hayley Williams, who is in fact female.

    I've gone for too long
    Living like I'm not alive
    So I'm gonna start over tonight
    Beginning with you and I

    Both parties involved suffer from the common self-esteem issues (i'm not good enough for anyone, no one will ever love me, etc.) and as a result they go through life depressed. When they find each other, they finally realize they can be loved, so they decide to try and remake themselves.

    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

    However, the guy in this situation may have relapsed, and started to push away the girl because he doesn't think that she really loves him. She responds by saying that she won't leave, and won't let him give up on this when it might save him, and her as well.

    We've learned to run from
    Anything uncomfortable
    We've tied our pain below
    And no one ever has to know

    She wants him to open up to her and let up the pain that they have previously just pushed away, and together they could deal with it. Instead of just running away from anything uncomfortable like they are used to.

    Just my humble opinion. thanks for your time!

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

    General Commentseems 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
