Waiting For The Miracle

Text písně Waiting For The Miracle

Baby, I´ve been waiting
I´ve been waiting night and day
I didn´t see the time
I waited half my life away
There were many invitations
And I know you sent me some
But I was waiting
For the miracle to come

I know you really loved me
But, you see, my hands were tied
I know it must have hurt you
It must have hurt your pride
To stand beneath my window
With your bugle and your drum
While I was waiting
For the miracle to come

You wouldn´t like it baby
You wouldn´t like it here
There´s not much entertainment
And the critics are severe
The maestro says it´s mozart
But it sounds like bubble gum
When you´re waiting
For the miracle to come

Chorus
Waiting for the miracle
There´s nothing left to do
I haven´t been this happy
Since the end of world war ii
Nothing left to do
When you know that you´ve been taken
Nothing left to do
When you´re begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
When you´ve got to go on waiting
For the miracle to come

I dreamed about you, baby
It was just the other night
Most of you was naked
But some of you was light
The sands of time were falling
]from your fingers and your thumb
And you were waiting
For the miracle to come

Baby, let´s get married
We´ve been alone too long
Let´s be alone together
Let´s see if we´re that strong
Let´s do something crazy
Something absolutely wrong
While we´re waiting
For the miracle to come

Chorus

When you´ve fallen on the highway
And you´re lying in the rain
And they ask you how you´re feeling
Of course you say you can´t complain
If you´re squeezed for information
That´s when you´ve got to play it dumb
You just say you´re out there waiting
For the miracle to come
