The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)

Lyricist: U2    Composer: U2
I was chasing down the days of fear
Chasing down a dream
Before it disappeared
I was aching to be somewhere near.
Your voice was all I heard I was shaking from a storm in me,
Haunted by the specters that we had to see
Yeah I wanted to be the melody,
Above the noise, above the hurt.

I was young
Not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you
Brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense out of the world
Everything I ever lost,
Now has been returned in the most beautiful sound I'd ever heard

We got language so we can't communicate
Religion so I can love and hate
Music so I can exaggerate my pain,
And give it a name

I was young
Not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you
Brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense out of the world
Everything I ever lost,
Now has been returned in the most beautiful sound I'd over heard

We can hear you
We can hear you
We can hear you


I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
I get so many things I don't deserve
All the stolen voices will someday be returned
The most beautiful sound I'd ever heard
