lyrics

when my daddy drives
on the highway
it looks like the car ahead is towing him
and though lord knows i’ve tried
to remind her
my sweet mother never buckles in
it’s a miracle
i’m even here at all

all my best friends can throw back
a good seven pints a day
and half the time you can bet that i’ll join in
but i never
seem to regret it
cause i sure love the time i spend with them
but it’s a miracle
we’re even here at all

so lead us
ageless jesus
to the places we’re likeliest to fall
cause it’s a miracle
we’re even here at all

oh my lover
well, she takes her chances
by choosing a man who loses when he wins
but the warmth of summer
somehow always dances
in her eyes as she forgives again
again and yet again
oh it’s a miracle
we’re even here at all

how i long to
write the songs of ages
but every worthwhile thing i could sing’s been sung before
so i’m left here
just seeking out the sages
sketching scenes of freedom on these well-worn prison doors
well it’s a miracle
i’m even here at all

so lead us
ageless jesus
to the places we’re likeliest to fall
so lead us
ageless jesus
to the places we’re likeliest to fall
cause it’s a miracle
it’s a miracle
it’s a miracle
we’re even here at all
