Track Name: Miracles
I believe in miracles
even if I die.
I won't believe there's nothing special
I can be in life.

I believe in being good
even if you don't.
I won't deny there's something magic
I can be if I... try.

I believe in miracles
I know because I live it.
Was once ashamed,
but now I'm not afraid to show it.

I believe in miracles
even if it's wrong.
The wonders of my life
won't be here for long.

I believe in the space between.
I believe in the mystery
I've believed beyond what I see all my life.

I believe in light.
I believe in dark,
where I've lived all my life.

Now, I believe in you.
Do you believe in me, too?

I believe in miracles.
I believe in miracles.
I believe in miracles.
Track Name: Train Song
Well, I hear the train a'coming
I can see it on the track.
And I hear my father moaning,
he is breaking his own back.

And will I learn it all in stride?
And will I learn to take my time?
And will I learn it all in stride?

Well, my brothers are all moving on,
they're making their own lives.
Got their bags and built their bridges, now
they're gathering up their wives.

And will I learn it all in stride?
And will I learn to take my time?
And will I learn it all in stride?

Well, I hear the train a'coming...
Track Name: Lonely Daughter
I thought I was your chosen daughter.
I thought I was the only one.
I thought I had a lock that couldn't be bothered.
I believe now I was wrong.

Understanding isn't that simple.
You know, it's a long way to go.

But I'm saying goodbye to her,
that lonely daughter, my child.
It's time to give up your smile.

Give it up, give it up, give it up.
Right now.

I swear, you've been holding on a little too long.
Track Name: All Good Things
It took awhile.
It took awhile.
It took half his life.
It took a wife.

Now, all good things in stride.
Now, all good things I might give away.
I might give away.
I might... okay.

It took awhile.
It took awhile.
It took half our lives.
Yours and mine.

Now, all good things in stride.
Now, all good things I might give away.
I might give away.
I might... okay.
Track Name: Spirit Away
Oh my god,
where have you gone?
In the afternoon of a song?

Oh my god,
where have you gone?
In the stolen light,
or are you in my lungs?
Track Name: Anna
In a million years,
you could've asked me
that many times.

And in a million years,
after all those crimes.

You wouldn't know my name,
if you asked it
that many times.

You wouldn't know the million crimes.

Well, I never ever thought that I could.
Yeah, I never ever thought that I could.

Who would've told me that I could
with so little in my corner?
You didn't know me as I was.
You didn't know me as I was.

Well, I could, Dad.
And I could, Mom.
And I could, Anna, all along.

Yeah, I could, Dad.
And I could, Mom.
And I could, Anna, all along.
Track Name: Wildflowers
Well, I went out walking
along that old highway road.
You know the one
that never seems to end.

When I came upon a crop
of roadside flowers,
just blowing sweetly
in the wind.

Wildflowers...
Wildflowers...

Well, all my friends
And all my loves
And all my mighty powers

Well, all my friends
And all my loves
And all my powers...

Well, they're just wildflowers.

Wildflowers...
Wildflowers...
Wildflowers...
Track Name: Resolve
Didn't I try...
with all of my light on the line?

Didn't I follow?
Didn't I lead?
Didn't I swallow...
all of my anger and pride?

Didn't I die for it...
in a little way?
Didn't I fly for it?
Didn't I give all my love away?

All will resolve.
All will resolve...
like a song.
