1Here Come The Miracles

Lyrics

You want to take a glass a water, turn the water into wine
Don't call it a miracle, it happens all the time
You missed the part where the heavens start to bend?
Wait a couple minutes, it'll happen again

ch:

Falling to the ground like a hurricane
Sunshine coming through the pouring rain
Can't win the game if you don't wanna play
Miracles coming down every day

You say the sun's gonna rise up in the west?
Special delivery by your own request
Clothe and feed lepers with a couple loaves of bread?
Anyone can do it, don't let it go to your head

(ch)

It takes more than faith to get through this maze
The rats got the inside track and they're not giving way
What can I believe in the face of such disease?
When the forces of evil are free to do as they please
Here Come The Miracles
2Shades Of Blue

Lyrics

I know someday we'll look back on the way we've lived our days
Working like detectives digging through the muck and haze
Count our blessings if we still can find our way through
Shades of blue

I guess someday we'll do our best to pick ourselves apart
And try to draw a line directly from the mind into to the heart
Swimming through the stream of memories and films in
Shades of blue

I don't know what happened, what went wrong or if I even care
burned out in a firefall or drowned in oceans of despair
And now I try to draw a line to here back from the better times
I lose myself in words and rhymes

And if we have our wits and want to travel back in time
We may amaze ourselves with all the things that we might find
Lost in wine and roses, bits of me and you and
Shades of Blue
Here Come The Miracles
3Sustain

Lyrics

The more I see, the less I think I want to see
Which only makes me dare to see
More than I really should
I test myself to show I can endure
Beyond the point of anything that anyone
Has tried to suffer through before

And only the pain remains (sustain, sustain)
Nothing that time can explain away

Like a debt that I never tried to pay before
And no one''s ever gonna take
The fee away from me
I try to clear the books with time
Instead of tangible artifacts
And elements and bits of me that I can't see

And only the pain remains (sustain, sustain)
Nothing that time can explain away

And on and on and on and on
Here Come The Miracles
4Blackout

Lyrics

Find me a place where I can hide my head
When I dare to step away from the foot of my bed
Got a lot of things to learn this morning.

Show me the way to the witness stand
And you can read the lines from the palm of my hand
Got a lot of things to learn this morning

Any other day would be fine
when I lay it on the line

Separate the truth from the alibis
The blood dripping slowly from the back of my eyes
Got a lot of things to learn this morning

Bloodstains linger on a cotton shirt
Cars lining up outside in the dirt
Got a lot of things to learn this morning
Here Come The Miracles
5Butterscotch

Lyrics

Never liked to beg
For what she already had
Every grain of sand
Had fallen through her hand

Never liked the game
But played it just the same
Every angry face
Forgotten and replaced

Tell me what you see
When all you see is me
Never liked to watch
Drowned in butterscotch

Turned to pantomimes
Because you didn't like your lines
Turned to frozen stares
Parachutes and flares

Melting in the sun
In front of everyone
Every angry face
Forgotten and replaced
Here Come The Miracles
6Southern California Line

Lyrics

Bobby took a ride on a California night
On the 7:35 from Salinas
Didn't hear a sound there was no one else around
He said 'The sky has come between us'.

Are you really sure that now's the time?
Are you ready to be saved
On the Southern California Line?

Bobby made a list of the places he had missed
And the places where he'd been forgotten
Looked upon the list and he tore the list to bits
And he wondered how it turned so rotten

Bobby's last connection was a thought about confession
And a 25-to-life in prison
Took a load of pills, leaned against the windowsill
And waited till his soul had risen
Here Come The Miracles
7Morningside Heights

Lyrics

Why won't you come down and shed some light
They've been spreading all those rumors since you walked out that night
Your ghost don't stand a chance when it's filled with flesh and blood
Battered and dragged through the mud

Why won't you come down and show me a sign
You've been gone for so long, you weren't easy to find
Got a breakdown from a facedown that nobody saw
I hope that you find it somewhere

Every Friday I go down by the end of the block
Look the world over and I find that it's easy to walk
It's a long way down but I'll find my way
Yes I'll find my way

Why won't you come down and show me a sign
You were gone for so long you weren't easy to find
From the West Side to the East Side there's no place to hide
Such a beautiful slide

Here Come The Miracles
8Let's Leave It Like That

Lyrics

Champagne Sally said 'I kinda like it rough
Always gotta know when good enough is good enough
Don't take a shine to too much gloss
Gotta keep it cheap whatever the cost
Let's leave it like that

Always kinda liked to go and leave it all to chance
Place myself in a see-what-happens stance
You roll the dice, you spin the wheel
Wait for a clue to see just how you feel
Let's leave it like that

The random life's been good to me
You don't look past what you don't want to see
The easy way will set you free, oh yeah
Let's leave it like that

The end of the world's gonna be a mighty thing
I'm gonna like the part where the angels start to sing
And when I read about it in the Times the next day
There won't a whole lot more I'll want to say
Let's leave it like that

Here Come The Miracles
9Crawling Misanthropic Blues

Lyrics

Got a lotta slack that's holding me back
And I don't know where to go
Sniffing like a hound that wants to bite down
But I can't tell friend from foe

I want to slow down but I can't

Gimme lotta lead and slow me down with speed
And I'll let you go your way
Put it down on paper and bother me later
If that's all you got to say

I want to be there but I'm not

Nobody's perfect I know that it's true
Nobody's perfect but what can you do
Nobody's perfect it's just noise and stuff
But sometimes too much just isn't enough

Take a little powder and turn it up louder
And blow the walls apart
Gotta give me level to keep away the devil
And crawl inside my heart

I want to be free but I'm not
Here Come The Miracles
10Drought

Lyrics

If the river runs dry like it probably will
I'll drink from the well 'till I get my fill
If God likes a joke and I think that he may
We'll both be there laughing at the end of the play

What can I tell you?
The way that they sell you,
Well, you can strike up the band
with the back of her hand, it's alright.

What can I show you,
They think that they know you
Well you can wrap up the show
With all that you know, it's alright

If they come looking for me you can tell them dead
I might be there watching or hiding instead
Here Come The Miracles
11Death Valley Rain

Lyrics

I'm buying time
But I've got no place to put it
I draw the line
But that shouldn't slow me down, now should it?

Riding against the minutes
Outside the city limits
Burning deep inside me like
Death Valley rain

We come alive
When the sun goes down in the valley
We never drive
We just park it out back in the alley

ch

The moon it shines
And lights up the cans on the dashboard
The stars align
But we don't know exactly what for

1Strange New World

Lyrics

Once I was down in New Orleans
Mixing Scotch with gasoline
The stench was bad, the juice was clean
You shoulda heard just what I seen

Lightning flashed and split the sky
Thunder rolled from way up high
Blacked out and hit the ground
When I awoke this is what I found

Moving fast, moving clean
Stepping lightly like a dream
Hairs on end, toes curl
It's a strange new world

Like Rip Van Winkle I was amazed
Cuz 20 years was only 20 days
I was connected to everyone
They knew me and what I'd done

Way on top but I don't know why
Lord knows I didn't try
The King of Swing, The Duke of Earl
It's a strange new world

I fee alive, I feel free
Evolution got a hold on me
Moving on but standing still
Watch me fly from the windowsill

Taking speed just like I should
Getting while it's good
Got the clams, got the pearl
It's a strange new world

I have been writing quite a bit and I will choose one of my favorites to record on the morning and afternoon of January 17 when Dave and Linda and Chris and myself go into Water Music for the first of the Single of the Month installments.

2Sunset To The Sea

Lyrics

This old V6, it's built for speed
Tops out at 135 and that's all I need
I got the tape deck on, Martha Reeves on the box
Going mile by mile, tethered to the leather
Gonna be the death of me
Sunset to the Sea

It's been 17 years since I walked away
I didn't know why then, I don't care today
You shouldn't have anything that you're afraid to leave
Going mile by mile, tethered to the leather
Gonna be the death of me
Sunset to the sea

I had a few shots back in East LA
If I see those red flashing lights I'm not giving way
What's a few more shots gonna mean to me?
Going mile by mile, tethered to the leather
Gonna be the death of me
Sunset to the sea
Here Come The Miracles
3Good And Bad

Lyrics

Now that the wounds have all healed
Are you gonna come back
Do you wanna come back to me

I hope you won't hold me to blame
All that I remember
All that I remember was shame

It's all in the story you tell
Nobody's a villain
Nothing that can't be explained

There's more than just good and bad
There's a reason
A reason for everything

I'm starting to figure it out
Maybe just maybe
It wasn't my fault

Maybe there's something you said
Are you gonna come back
Are you gonna come back to me.

In the movies the monsters are real
But now
Now I just don't know
Here Come The Miracles
4Topanga Canyon Freaks

Lyrics

We're gonna raise up the ghosts of the Topanga Canyon freaks
Getting stronger from the heat and burnt from the meat that we didn't eat last week
You want hallucinations and signs? Go and have mine. We've got a lot of work to do
Sometime around 9 as the moon begins to shine, we're gonna come looking for you

Gonna take you back to '72, that's what I'm gonna do in a tequila-soaked backseat.
Gonna die a little each day and make our own way to the heroes down the street
Got scars and designs and holes in my mind and the cameras begin to roll
We're gonna save up time, build up our minds and then we're gonna save your soul.

got a side-door entry to the 21st Century for the Topanga Canyon freaks
Gonna take a little ramble on a midnight gamble that it all won't go to the meek
We'll take it by land, roll the taco stand and wait until the guns are drawn
Turn on the charm, defuse the alarm and move on

It's 2001 but before we're done we're gonna take it back to '69
The streets are clean but the money's lean and we got a lot of Thunderbird wine
We'll wait outside of your drive, look for signs of life and then we'll drive away
We don't fuss but from the looks of us you'll know we're ready to play.

Your mom was 17 when it started to get mean by Mulholland Drive
Now you're 22 and there's not much you wouldn't do to feel more alive
We got the faded old photos and nowhere to go but we drive until we drop
We just push the line an inch at a time until we're forced to stop
Here Come The Miracles
5Watch Your Step

Lyrics

There's been some bad bad feelings coming down from the ceiling
There's been some hard hard truth coming down in your youth.

I'm not the one who's gonna take it to the other side
I'm not about to go and lose it on account of pride

Watch your step

There's been some bad double dealings and some very funny feelings
There's been some real double cross mixing down in the sauce

I'm not the one who's looking for an easy out
I'm not someone who's gonna go and get tossed about
I'm not above pouring from the silver spout
Life is cruel

Watch your step

I'm not the one who's gonna take it to the other side
I'm not the one who's gonna lose it on account of pride
I'm not the one who's gonna go and find a place to hide
Life is hard

Watch your step
Here Come The Miracles
6Charity

Lyrics

Valentine such as mine
So resigned
To harder times than these
Harder times than these

Loneliness and solitude
And safety
From the ones that would intrude
The ones that would intrude

Me, I never knew where I stood
Or what was good
Charity never looked good on me
Charity never looked good on me

Carelessness and cold regret
And memories
You'd just as soon forget
You'd just as soon forget

Gracefully you pull the shade
And dream about the day
You'll walk away
The day you walk away
Here Come The Miracles
7Smash Myself To Bits

Lyrics

You got drunk and told me about the way you let it go
Giving up is easy when nobody has to know
Said "it's not a pose to want to wear the shoe that fits
Anyway it's either that or smash myself to bits"

Sally Jean once said that she was dealt a lucky hand
When she tried to cash her chips I couldn't understand
Said "I had to see if I had the guts to call it quits.
Seemed to be just good enough to smash myself to bits."

Got a list of stupid choices long as I can see
Wish that I could change them all but that's not meant to be
So I vow to turn the tide and still I take my hits
Forget my vows and find new ways to smash myself to bits
Here Come The Miracles
8There Will Come A Day

Lyrics

I was thinking of my troubles
As people sometimes will
Everyone who had done my wrong
And those who would wrong me still
And in a fit of desperation
I found myself on my knees
wishing pain and suffering
on all my enemies

I prayed for loss of limb
and lingering disease
Of blight and devastation
And assorted miseries
But as I made my wishes
and as I cast my spells
I stopped myself and said a prayer
And said these words to myself

There will come a day
There will come a day
When all of the evil
will be washed away
The patient will be rewarded
And their tormentors will pay
There will come a day, lord
There will come a day

Here Come The Miracles

  • Independant Underground Sound

    "It's a mixture of the best of Americana and the best shag of your life. Yeah, that good, man"
  • London Times

    "Songwriterly maturity merges with psychedelic power surges. But be warned: buy this record and prepare for an expensive outlay on Wynn's back catalogue."
  • Time Out NY

    "...Wynn tears through the songs with great purpose and passion. He's always been a moody son-of-a-bitch but on this record he reaches moments of wisdom, introspection and spiritual enlightenment unexplored on his past albums. ...The songs are littered with grim scenes of self-destruction, booze, pills, fast cars, sad characters and other 'assorted miseries,' but the album concludes with a hopeful message on the glorious closing track, the spiritual 'There Will Come a Day.'"
  • San Francisco Bay Guardian

    "...'Here Come The Miracles,' the masterful new double album from ex-Dream yndicate leader Steve Wynn...gives us an L.A. soaked with grime, skank, and growl. Wynn's Los Angeles is a Byrds- and X-haunted mecca for squinting, imperfect souls who are buying time but, as Wynn sings on 'Death Valley Rain,' 'got no place to put it' and who have the 'Crawling Misanthropic Blues' because they want to be free but can't be."
  • Village Voice

    "Mr. Wynn, who's been bringing his brainy, pop-fueled songcraft to the minimasses since his days in the Paisley Underground with Dream Syndicate, has a groovy new album out, 'Here Come the Miracles.'"
  • Time Out London

    "A work of grit and grind and pith and pop, pretty jangle and beauty bomp, shifting structure and melodic suss. Great songs, gloriously delivered. This is likely Wynn's masterpiece.... just get this, get this, get this."
  • Q

    "...Wynn's sprawling, 2-disc 'Here Comes The Miracles' may well be his finest, most consistent and convincing work ever." - Iowa City Press Citizen "He's rarely sounded more driven... dusting off his best Lou Reed/Neil Young/Bob Mould moves, it's an airtight collection of jagged guitar manoeuvres..."
  • Chicago Sun-Time

    "...his strongest album in a decade..."
  • Chicago Tribune

    "Sounding alternately combative and remorseful, Wynn flavors his tales with organ-fueled garage rock, sweet Brill Building pop, slinky R&B grooves, Neil Young crunch, Lou Reed noise and Dylan-esque brooding. Whatever the style, though, Wynn approaches it with the energetic abandon of his first musical love."
  • Chicago Tribune

    "...an impressively consistent 2-CD set that ranks with his very best. Rather than forge new ground, Wynn casts a wide-angle spotlight on his considerable skills, from his tuneful, classically resonant songwriting to his thoughtful arranging to his multifaceted guitar playing. ...'Here Come the Miracles' proves that Wynn's a genuine rock renaissance man."
  • Billboard

    "...an ambitious new entry in his discography."
  • Boston Phoenix

    "It's his most assured work in years, a dazzling display of inspiration, intent, and execution that, from the opening garage-fuzz guitar notes of the title track, recalls the nocturnal grandeur of Dream Syndicate's 1982 landmark LP, 'The Days of Wine and Roses.'"
  • No Depression

    Wynn fires back with both barrels blazing....Wynn's nineteen-song cycle of a Southern California suspended between the millennium and the apocalypse infuses his literary aspirations with rock 'n' roll smarts, as if he's fronting Raymond Chandler's supercharged garage band.
  • Q

    Reviewed: July 2001 Genre: Rock Label: BLUEROSE Release Date: 23-Feb-2001 Key Tracks: Good & Bad There Will Come A Day Smash Myself To Bits **** Nineteen tracks etched across two CDs and clocking in at over 80 minutes, Here Come The Miracles is clearly Steve Wynn pushing the boat out. More to the point, he's rarely sounded more driven, reeling off his bleakly ambiguous tales like a man with limited time on his hands and several points to prove. Amazingly, there's little filler here or any of the faux folksiness that has dogged much of his solo work. Instead, dusting off his best Lou Reed/Neil Young/Bob Mould moves, it's an airtight collection of jagged guitar manoeuvres with the 12-string crackle of Good & Bad a genuine star turn. Now, if only it really was 1982 all over again... Reviewed by Peter Kane

    ...he came away with the record of his career. "Here Come The Miracles" is one of those rare records that grows more compelling with each run-through of its 19 songs.
  • Time Out NY

    ...Wynn tears through the songs with great purpose and passion. He's always been a moody son-of-a-bitch but on this record he reaches moments of wisdom, introspection and spiritual enlightenment unexplored on his past albums. ...The songs are littered with grim scenes of self-destruction, booze, pills, fast cars, sad characters and other 'assorted miseries,' but the album concludes with a hopeful message on the glorious closing track, the spiritual 'There Will Come a Day.'
  • Cincinnati City Beat

    ...'Miracles' is a sprawling, squalling AltRock epic, at once a validation of everything Wynn has attempted in his solo career, as well as an expansion upon it.
  • Minneapolis City Pages

    ...perhaps the greatest neo-psychedelic record in eons, 'Here Come the Miracles' [is] a work of fuzzed-out beauty...
  • Columbus Dispatch

    The music... is forward-thinking. Wynn claims this was the most fun he ever had making a record, and it shows. The songwriting and production quirks are the most ambitious of his career.

  • Svenska Dagbladet

    Steve Wynn Är en musiker vars försÄljningssiffror blygsamt överstiger antalet utgivna titlar. Nu kommer han med dubbla cd-n Here comes the miracles. Även om den inte Är mirakulös, Är den vÄrd att lyssna till. Mot mullrande gitarrbakgrunder avtecknas Wynns röst: ofta nerbÄddad, ibland förvrÄngd. Men melodierna Är starka, de balanserar mullret. Och Wynn Är en fin sånglyriker, med pregnanta betraktelser om ett liv som ofta Är på vÄg åt ett annat håll.
