Miracle Mile

Album: Dear Miss Lonelyhearts (2013)
  • I was supposed to do great things
    I'd know the rule's law
    But I wasn't raised to shoot for fame
    I had the safety on
    I cut my ties, I sold my rings
    I wanted none of this
    If you start from scratch and have to sing
    Just for the fun of it

    I'll be alright, if I could just see you
    Come up for air, come up for air
    A miracle mile where does it lead to?
    Come up for air, come up for air

    I feel the air upon my face, forget the mess I'm in
    Hold me again, don't count mistakes, I lost track of them

    I'll be alright, if I could just see you
    Come up for air, come up for air
    A miracle mile where does it lead to?
    Come up for air, come up for air

    I was in the mud, I was in the dirt
    Went underground and I thought what I was worth
    All alone and I know I can't stay, but
    We're walking up and down the streets to stay awake

    Come up for air, come up for air, come up
    Come up for air, come up for air, come up
    Come up for air, come up for air, come up
    Come up for air, come up for air, come up

    Get outside, get out over the world
    A little love, what you can return
    Adrenaline and let me push some
    But you and breathe one breath a time

    Come up for air, come up for air, come up
    Come up for air, come up for air, come up
    Come up for air, come up for air, come up

    I'll be alright, if I could just see you
    Come up for air, come up for air
    A miracle mile where does it lead to?
    Come up for air, come up for air

    I'll be alright, if I could just see you
    A miracle mile where does it lead to? Writer/s: DANN GALLUCCI, MATTHEW AVEIRO, MATTHEW MAUST, NATHAN WILLETT
