KREUZBERGED BERLIN

Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin

MUSIC SOOTHES THE SOUL: THE MIRACLE

Only 15 minutes left till the day ends – the day that would have marked Freddie Mercury´s 67th birthday.

To celebrate that day and the music of one of the greatest bands in history, a personal favourite: “The Miracle”.  A song that taught me not only new English vocabulary.

With the lyrics below.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FREDDIE!

Every drop of rain that falls in Sahara Desert says it all
It’s a miracle
All God’s creations great and small
The Golden Gate and the Taj Mahal
That’s a miracle
Test tube babies being born
Mothers,fathers dead and gone
It’s a miracle

We’re having a miracle on earth
Mother nature does it all for us
The wonders of this world go on
The hanging Gardens of Babylon
Captain Cook and Cain and Abel
Jimi Hendrix to the Tower of Babel
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle
It’s a miracle

The one thing we’re all waiting for is peace on earth – an end
to war
It’s a miracle we need – the miracle
The miracle we’re all waiting for today

If every leaf on every tree could tell a story that would be a
miracle
If every child on every street had clothes to wear and food to
eat
That’s a miracle
If all God’s people could be free to live in perfect harmony
It’s a miracle

We’re having a miracle on earth
Mother nature does it all for us
Open hearts and surgery
(wonders of this world go on)
Sunday mornings with a cup of tea
Super powers always fighting
But Mona Lisa just keeps on smiling
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle

(wonders of this world go on)
It’s a miracle it’s a miracle it’s a miracle
It’s a miracle

The one thing (the one thing) we’re all waiting for (we’re all
waiting for)
Is peace on earth (peace on earth) and an end to war (an end
to war)
It’s a miracle we need – the miracle
The miracle peace on earth and end to war today

That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
That time will come one day you’ll see when we can all be
friends
