MAYBE A MIRACLE

Words and Music by Anne M Carley © 1994 – 2002

Portrait of a young, barely conscious woman on the move.

Running toward an oncoming train
arms outstretched, smiling face
Running with a dare on her lips
she’s here and now, tempting fate
Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
And she’ll be OK

When will she stop running in the path of the train
Why does she run toward it, not away?
What in her is tantalized with danger?
Maybe a miracle will happen and she’ll be OK

Diving in the River of Fire
stubborn flair, swan-like grace
Driving out the fear in her bones
the heat and fire will take its place
Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
And she’ll be OK

When will she stop diving in the River of Fire
Why does she run toward it, not away?
What in her is tantalized with danger?
Maybe a miracle will happen and she’ll be OK

Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
Maybe a miracle will happen
And she’ll be OK
