Nothing But a Miracle

Album: Bible Belt (2009)
  • Gettin' tired of livin', livin' for a moment
    Gettin' tired of hanging on the line
    I wake up every morning and I pull back the curtain
    And wonder if it's gonna rain or shine

    Gettin' tired of thinking, gettin' so tired of begging
    Gettin' tired of forgetting that there's two of us
    I'm getting so tired of loving a man that just don't give a damn

    Just tell me, tell me baby why I'm holding on
    When your lovin's long gone?
    I got a good mind so why don't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    Just tell me baby why I've been holding on for so long?
    And nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back
    Bring you back to me now

    I gotta get myself together
    Gotta stop telling myself that I can do no better
    Gotta go out and maybe start meeting some new people
    I gotta go out and buy myself one of those little black dresses

    Cause I'm so tired of this T-shirt
    I'm so tired of cryin' off all my make up
    Gettin just so tired of waking up with a lonely heart
    I'm getting so tired of giving a damn about an absent hearted man

    Just tell me, tell me baby why I'm holding on
    When your lovin's long gone?
    I got a good mind so why don't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    Just tell me baby why I've been holding on for so long?
    And nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back
    Bring you back to me now

    Oh, I can see it
    Coming down the shadows
    I can see it, it's coming through
    It's coming through the windows

    Oh, I can see it
    I can see it coming down the ceiling
    I can't escape it, can't escape it
    No I can't escape it

    Tell me, yeah, why I'm holding on
    When your love is long gone?
    I got a good mind so why don't you tell me why
    I can't say goodbye

    Just tell me baby why I've been holding on for so long?
    And nothing but a miracle is gonna to bring it back
    Bring you back to me now

    Oh, nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back to me now
    Oh, nothing but a miracle, oh no, no
    Oh, nothing but a miracle is gonna bring you back to me now
