  • I said go if you want to go
    Stay if you want to stay
    I didn't care if you hung around me
    I didn't care if you went away
    And I know you were never right
    I'll admit I was never wrong
    I could never make up my mind
    I made it up as I went along

    And though I treated you like a child
    I'm gonna miss you for the rest of my life

    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

    I never had any time
    And I never had any call
    But I went out of my way just to hurt you
    The one I shouldn't hurt at all
    I thought I was being cool
    Yeah, I thought I was being strong
    But it's always the same old story
    You never know what you've got 'til it's gone

    If I ever catch up with you
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you

    And if I ever catch up with you
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a, all I need is a
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is you (all I need is a miracle)
    (All I need is a miracle, all I need is a miracle
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle

  • John from Cleveland, OhioI would like to know what is shouted in the introduction portion of the song. I have tried to isolate the voice and reverse it in case it is backwards-masked, but I cannot perceive anything that does not sound like gibberish.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 16th 1986, "All I Need Is a Miracle" by Mike + the Mechanics entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #74; eleven weeks later on June 1st, 1980 it peaked at #5 for one week...
    It also reached the Top 10 in two other countries; #1 in Ireland and #8 in Australia...
    Between 1985 and 1991 the British group had seven Top 100 records; three made the Top 10 with one reaching #1, "The Living Years" for one week on March 19th, 1989.
  • Joe from Chicago, IlPaul Carrack also sang lead on How Long by his one hit wonder band: Ace.
  • Don from B G, KyThis song went to #5 in the USA in 1986. I think that is much better than just a minor hit. True it only charted at #53 in the UK in 1986. For some reason M+TM did better in the USA market on their big songs than they did in their homeland of UK. The re-release in 1996 did not make the charts in the USA. We are still listening to the 1986 original in the USA. Quite a "miracle" for these days. The lead vocals are from the late Paul Young-y. Paul Carrack sings on the refrain, he is on the viewers left side of the stage.
  • Beach from Brooklyn, Nythis is def a classic 80s song and definitely not a minor hit
  • Joshua from Twin Cities, MnActually Paul Young sang lead on this track, not Carrack. (Carrack sang lead on the group's previous single, "Silent Running".) Young is not to be confused with solo artist Paul Young, who had a hit at about the same time in 1985 with "Every Time You Go Away".
