♫ All I Need Is A Miracle ♫

Tonight I had the perfect song picked out … somehow it perfectly suited my mood and I was sure you would like it … but then my castle came crumbling down as I found that I had already played The Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics last September.  Some songs, like Ebony and Ivory or Imagine, I will repeat, but … instead, I found another that suits me by M & M.

Written by guitarist Mike Rutherford and producer Christopher Neil, it was first included on their 1985 self-titled debut album, and later released as a single in early 1986 in the USA, where it reached number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100.  In an interview prior to the song’s release as a single, Rutherford commented, “The thing that makes ‘Miracle’ different, to me, is that it’s a happy song – or it’s primarily a happy song. It’s ‘up’. And I don’t do that very often. …It may not be optimistic, but it’s a positive attitude to life.”

All I Need Is a Miracle
Mike + The Mechanics

I said “Go if you want to go
Stay if you want to stay”
I didn’t care if you hung around me
I didn’t care if you went away
And I know you were never right
I’ll admit I was never wrong
I could never make up my mind
I made it up as I went along

And though I treated you like a child
I’m gonna miss you for the rest of my life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

I never had any time
And I never had any call
But I went out of my way just to hurt you
The one I shouldn’t hurt at all
I thought I was being cool
Yeah, I thought I was being strong
But it’s always the same old story
You never know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone

If I ever catch up with you
I’m gonna love you for the rest of your life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

And if I ever catch up with you
I’m gonna love you for the rest of your life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
