Lyrics

North to South
Empty
Running on
Bravado
As if to say, as if to say
As if to say, he doesn't like chocolate
He's born a liar, he'll die a liar
Some things will never be different

Stop being

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?

Are you hoping for a miracle?

I'm thinking six

Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
Are you hoping for a miracle?
(it's not enough, it's not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle?
(it's not enough, it's not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle? (...it's not enough, not enough)
Are you hoping for a miracle? (...it's not enough, not enough)

The "total plays" shown on this page simply refers to the total number of times our archiving system has seen it being played since it was launched on the 28th of July 2014. It should not be relied upon as an exact figure for total all-time plays as the true figure could vary by quite a substantial amount.
