I Need A Miracle

Originally performed by Grateful Dead

I need a woman 'bout twice my age,
A lady of nobility, gentility and rage --
A splendor in the dark -- lightnin' on the draw.
We'll go right through the book, and break each and every law.

I got a feeling, and it won't go away. oh, no.
Just one thing, then I'll be okay.
I need a miracle every day.

I need a woman 'bout twice my height --
Statuesque, raven-tressed, a goddess of the night
With a secret incantations, candles burning blue.
We consult the spirits.
Maybe they'll know what to do.

And it's real, and it won't go away. Oh, no.
Can't get around it, and I can't run away.
I need a miracle every day.

I need a woman 'bout twice my weight --
A ton of fun, who packs a gun with all that other freight.
Find her in a sideshow. Leave her in L.A.
Ride her like a surfer riding on a tidal wave.

And it's real. Believe what I say, oh yeah.
Just one thing that I got to say:
I need a miracle every day.

It takes dynamite to get me up.
Too much of everything is just enough.
One more thing: I just got to say,
I need a miracle every day!
