Song Description

A frank portrait of what it takes to be a musician and a testment to the power and importance of "having a good song."

Story Behind the Song

This is a reflection on the life of the musician - songwriter, spelling out in no uncertain terms the harsh reality of what it takes to "make it" and also casting a more than somewhat cynical eye at the machinations of the old school "industry" that has consumed and spit out so many talents. It is not all glamour and glitz. In fact, most of the time it is far far from that. But we continue writing because we must.

Lyrics

Miracle Song
By Mark Smotroff, Sean Mylett and ing
(c) 2003 Sonic Gloo Tunes (ASCAP)

So you want to be a rockstar?
Well, I gotta laugh.
All the fame and the fortune is a massive gaff.
Stuff the polls with opinions.
Feed the media gas.
All the tired contortions.
And that push star crap.
It may take a while, for the cream to rise.
It may take some time, for your spotlight.
So just keep on writing songs
In the early morning light.
Stay up all night.
Stay up all day.
Make a miracle song.
Make a miracle song.
You say you've bent over backwards?
Well I got news for you.
Better get a new position.
And get used to it!
Borrow money from your mama.
Borrow money from your fans.
Tell the world you're a genius.
With a visionary stance.
It may take a while, for the cream to rise.
It may take some time, for your spotlight.
So just keep on writing songs
In the early morning light.
Stay up all night.
Stay up all day.
Make a miracle song.
Make a miracle song.
