Paramore - Miracle

I've gone for too long living like I'm not alive
So I'm going to 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 I 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
Oh why

Get it right this time (this time)
Let's leave this all behind
Oh why

We'll get it right this time
It's not faith if you're using your eyes
Oh why

I've gone for too long living like I'm not alive
So I'm going to 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, if you use your eyes
If you use your eyes
If you use your eyes

The seventh song of Paramore’s second album "Riot!" is a conversation of Hayley with herself and with God; she talks about her depression, getting through self-hate, and self-injury. In live performances, the song is usually followed by an outro that fans have grown to love; the outro says: "I asked for love. I asked for mercy. I asked for patience, but you’re already all of these things. If I knew what I needed… if I knew what was good for me… I’d be down on my knees begging please, please, please, let your light shine bright inside of me." Hayley talked about this song on Parahoy. She said: "This song started in 2005, that’s when it began, just the guitar riff. We were touring with a band called My American Heart and it was our first year on the road, we were learning a lot about ourselves and touring. My dad was driving us on the van because none of us were old enough and he would go “five minutes early is fifteen minutes too late” so we would be there 3 hours before soundcheck and we worked on this song everyday."
