"Miracles Out Of Nowhere" as written by and Kerry / Livgren....
On a crystal morning I can see the dewdrops falling
Down from a gleaming heaven, I can hear the voices call
When you comin' home now, son, the world is not for you
Tell me what's your point of view

Hey there Mister Madman, what'cha know that I don't know
Tell me some crazy stories, let me know who runs this show
Glassy-eyed and laughing, he turns and walks away
Tell me what made you that way

Here I am just waiting for a sign
Asking questions, learning all the time
It's always here, it's always there
It's just love, and miracles out of nowhere

Tell me now dear mother, what's it like to be so old
Children grown and leavin', seems the world is growin' cold
And though your body's ailin' you
Your mind is just like new
Tell me where you're goin' to

Here I am just waiting for a sign
Asking questions, learning all the time
It's always here, it's always there
It's just love, and miralces out of nowhere

It's so simple right before your eyes
If you'll look through this disguise
It's always here, it's always there
It's just love and miracles out of nowhere

I sang this song a hundred, maybe a thousand years ago
No one ever listens, I just play and then I go
Off into the sunset like the western heroes do
Tell me what you're gonna do

Here I am, I'm sure to see a sign
All my life I knew that it was mine
It's always here, it's always there
It's just love and miracles out of nowhere

    My InterpretationSome members of Kansas, Kerry Livgren for one, are Christian. This is evident in many of their songs, this one included. This song is about the singer's spiritual journey & search for meaning, one which many others have rejected or abandoned in favor of more wordly pursuits.

    Song MeaningThis is, indeed, about discovering and embracing the Christian faith (although it could just as easily be interpreted for any other greater meaning in life). The first verse is about the singer being intrigued by the beauty of nature on a perfect morning, which starts him on the road to truth.

    The second verse is about a "madman", someone who seems crazy because of the religious lifestyle he leads. The ending of the second verse, "Tell me, what made you that way?" suggests that the singer is intrigued rather than repulsed by this madness.

    The third verse is about the singer's encounter with someone who is nearing the end of their natural life, but despite the fact that the world seems to be "growing cold" toward her, she maintains a vigorous and upbeat life. Again, we can assume that this is due to her religious faith.

    The last verse changes perspective from the singer to some kind of external entity that is spreading the "song" or truth that has so intrigued the singer. Rather than foisting this truth on others, though, "[he] just play[s] and then [he] go[es]", allowing others to discover the story on their own. This is clearly meant to be the spiritual force that has enticed the singer.

    The chorus states the point of the song with some clarity. The final chorus, which is slightly different, reveals that the singer is more confident in the faith that they will see a sign, indicating growth in the spiritual life.

    General CommentThis is truly one of my favorite Kansas songs (and there are a lot). They are probably the most underrated band of all time. So talented and tight. The form of this song sort of reminds me of "I Want To Conquer the World" by Bad Religion although they are about completely different subjects. Anyone agree?
