    MIRACLES
    (Words and Music by Joan Baez)

    Miracles keep happening
    The sun rose in the east today
    I sat up and sighed for the millionth time
    As the dawn was phasing a night away
    The blues can last for just so long
    And from the depth
    There will arise another song
    And I'll sit here in the sea and the sun
    Waiting for that other song to come
    That other song to come

    You don't have to be black to sing the blues
    From what I gather all you got to be is blue
    Self-indulgence is universal
    Adolescence was merely a rehearsal
    Look around you and you will see
    Everyone has a small franchise on misery
    On misery

    And I will sing you a song
    Just as soon as I get my voice
    When you're up, you're up
    And when you're down
    You really got no choice

    No rain this winter
    The manzanita reminded me
    We've been living in a drought
    And the ocean looks good to me
    Haven't been in love for a year or so
    Because I get fussy
    And hard to live with as I grow
    Ask the hungry manzanita
    You cannot cross a cypress and a cedar
    And a cedar

    My moods are changing like the sea
    There are a hundred things
    That I'd like to be
    Meanwhile I'll sit in the sun
    Waiting for that other song to come
    That other song to come

    And I will sing it to you
    Just as soon as I get my voice
    When you're up, you're really up
    And when you're down
    You really got no choice
