Story

Most of what is around us is beyond our perception. To think that what is "real" is just what we can perceive or measure is the root of narrow-mindedness in my opinion. "Cause what you get is what you see." Believing is seeing and this song asks us to expect and manifest what can't be seen. Create a new and positive reality in your life. Relentlessly optimistic. More than a little Stevie Wonder influence on this one.

Lyrics

Expecting A Miracle

 

If we believe then we will see

Just how much joy our love can be

We can choose that easily

But if we indulge in all our doubts

Turning our problems inside out

Then that's all we'll care about

 

I don't want to go through another day

Worrying my precious life away

So take my hand and make a leap of faith

 

˜Cause what you get is what you see

Turning our lives into what will be

Something to cherish and to hold

Oh, that's what you get when expecting a miracle

 

Why do we make our lives so tough?

Striving in vain for useless stuff

When we know that love's enough

And in every moment we're alive

Magic and mystery reside If we just open our eyes

 

I don't want to go through another day

Hurrying my precious life away

So take my hand and make a leap of faith

 

Chorus

 

I just want to feel the joy of every day

Watch in wonder as our fears are swept away
