I Need a Miracle Lyrics

by Grateful Dead

I need a woman 'bout twice my age
A lady of nobility, gentility and rage
Splendor in the dark, lightning 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
Her secret incantations, candle burning blue
We'll 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 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 her other freight
Find her in a sideshow, leave her in L.A.
Ride her like a surfer running on a tidal wave

And it's real, believe what I say, yeah
Just one thing, hey, 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've just got to say
I need a miracle every day

I need a miracle every day, I need a miracle every day
I need a miracle every day
I need a miracle, I need a miracle, I need a miracle every day

I need a miracle every day, I need a miracle every day
I need a miracle, I need a miracle, I need a miracle every day
I need a miracle every day, I need a miracle every day
I need a miracle, I need a miracle, I need a miracle every day
