"Miracles" as written by Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and Roy Mayorga....
I've seen it all and I know better,
I've felt the bitterness and pain
My soul keeps changing like the weather,
the only constant is the rain
I've known your black and white intentions and there's no room
For shades of gray
I never asked you to conform to me
I only begged for you to stay

I waited here tonight for you to come
But your love just disappeared
I'm waiting in the dark for miracles
But miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here

I still have dreams that we're together
And I can still taste your skin
Reminders all around surrounded by your light,
I don't want to die again
I don't deserve to be discovered,
I don't deserve to know you care
I only want my promised other, not someone who isn't there

I waited here tonight for you to come
But your love just disappeared
I'm waiting in the dark for miracles
But miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here

Oh, I waited here all night for you to come
But your love just disappeared
I'm waiting in the dark for miracles
But miracles don't happen here
I waited here all night for you to come
But your love just disappeared
I'm waiting in the dark for miracles
But miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here
Miracles don't happen here

    Lyric CorrectionSounds to me that it's 'waiting here TOnight for you to come' not all night.

    General CommentAMAZING song from the new album. It's got a touch of the recent Alice in Chains with a hint of songs like "Snuff". Anyway, pretty simple meaning that can be interpreted by a few lines. Given the situation, there's a narrator and a love interest.

    "My soul keeps changing like the weather
    The only constant is the rain"

    The narrator goes through a mix of emotions, but the only thing that still remains is the pain that the person they love(d) is gone.

    And the chorus: "I'm waiting here all night for you to come
    But your luck just disappeared
    I'm wating in the dark for miracles
    Miracles don't happen here"

    means, of course, that the narrator is hoping that by some remarkable, miraculous event that the love interest comes back to them, but it's just not gonna happen. Pretty depressing concept, especially to those who've experienced heartbreak, but a great song nonetheless.

    General CommentIt appears that there are many disagreements on the lyrics.
    I always heard it as "Waiting here tonight for you to call / But your love just disappeared."
    As well, I hear the lyric "I only want my promised other" to be "I only want my promised daughter."
    Either way, it's a fantastic song. I really like their new album.

    My InterpretationAs for what it means, I sort of agree with Theworldneedsmusic.
    It pretty obviously is about a breakup, how he wants her to stay.
    Using the lyrics I hear (which may be wrong), "Waiting here tonight for you to call / but your love just disappeared" shows that he wants here back, but she doesn't appear to love him anymore. "Waiting in the dark for miracles / but miracles don't happen here" is calling back the her calling, or her coming back in general--the "miracle" is her loving him, which, again, doesn't appear to be happening.

    All in all, the lyrics are pretty incredible--I rarely see good lyrics in modern rock music, but this is fantastic.

    General CommentCorey: "It's about sitting and waiting for someone to come, but knowing they're not going to show up, and it's also about the melancholy that comes with that."

    Song MeaningThis song is about a guy who sat in the driveway of his girlfriend, who said she was home, but wasn't late one night. As the thoughts rushed through his head of where she was, what she was really doing, how he invested all his life, emotions, and trust into her, he realized the promises that were given, every smile, every sensual experience, every word she ever spoke, was a lie. Trust was gone. You didn't save me. You crucified me at the lowest point in my life. One lie questions all your truths. No. Miracles don't happen here.
