« Back to Lyrics

the summer was long and the nights were mild
the sun fell on me like a happy child
the mountains yawned and we all sang
and pressed ourselves into a gang
and I wasn’t looking for a miracle, miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
so wake me up when the fighting starts
I gave my word if not my heart
heaven and hell’s in a holy cup
your oil’s running down and your blood is up
and I don’t think I’ll leave this land
‘til victory’s pouring from my hands
I wasn’t looking for a miracle, miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
spread my wings high
feel the fear in the stratosphere
close my eyes I start to dive
wind and rust sand and dust
I wish I was in a mountain stream
or in your palace with both hands clean
but not hear in this dirty rag
with these broken tools and a grieving flag
so victory victory to the meek
the gentle hands and the turning cheek
‘cause I wasn’t looking for a miracle, miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
I wasn’t looking for a miracle
spread my wings high
feel the fear in the stratosphere
close my eyes I start to dive
wind and rust sand and dust
close my eyes I start to dive
wind and rust sand and dust
