Lyrics

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 lots of invitations And I know you sent me some But I was waiting For the miracle, for the miracle to come I know you really loved me But, you see, my hands were tied And I know it must have hurt you It must have hurt your pride To have to stand beneath my window With your bugle and your drum And me I'm up there waiting For the miracle, for the miracle to come Ah I don't believe you'd like it You wouldn't like it here There ain't no entertainment And the judgments are severe The Maestro says it's Mozart But it sounds like bubble gum When you're waiting For the miracle, for the miracle to come 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 Waiting for the miracle to come I dreamed about you, baby It was just the other night Most of you was naked Ah 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, for the miracle to come Ah baby, let's get married We've been alone too long Let's be alone together Let's see if we're that strong Yeah let's do something crazy, Something absolutely wrong While we're waiting For the miracle, for the miracle to come 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 Waiting for the miracle to come When you've fallen on the highway And you're lying in the rain, And they ask you how you're doing Of course you'll 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, for the miracle to come
