I Don't Believe in Miracles Anymore

By Bruce Clifford

Talk me down from this ledge
Show me there's more then what I believe in
I take these moments as if they were my last
What else is left that I'm not seeing

Once I could have pulled myself out of this hole
Now that I've been here for so long everything has spun so out of control
Out of control

I don't believe in fairy tales anymore
I don't believe in happiness or in what I live for
I don't believe one day you will come walking through that door
I don't believe in miracles anymore

Talk me down from this bridge
There's got to be a sign to make me want to live
Find me the escape hatch and throw me a rope
There's no other way I can find a reason to cope

Once upon a time I could have lifted myself out of this ditch
Now I see things differently, and life is such a bitch

I don't believe in fairy tales anymore
I don't believe in happiness or in what I live for
I don't believe one day you will come walking through that door
I don't believe in miracles anymore

I don't believe in treasures of the deep
I don't believe in sunshine everyday when I weep
I don't believe that faith can pick me up off of the floor
I don't believe in miracles anymore.

Talk me down from this ledge
Show me there's more then what I believe in
I take these moments as if they were my last
What else is left that I'm not seeing
