"The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)" as written by and Dave Evans Larry Mullen....
I want to trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To hear the things you haven't said
And see what you might see

I want to hear you when you call
Do you feel anything at all?
I want to see your thoughts take shape and walk right out

Freedom has a scent
Like the top of a newborn baby's head

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've seen enough, I'm not giving up on a miracle drug

Of science and the human heart
There is no limit
There is no failure here, sweetheart
Just when you quit

I am you and you are mine
Love makes nonsense of space and time, will disappear
Love and logic keep us clear
Reason is on our side, love

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, a miracle drug, a miracle drug

God, I need your help tonight

Beneath the noise, below the din
I hear your voice, it's whispering
In science and in medicine
"I was a stranger, you took me in"

The songs are in your eyes
I see them when you smile
I've had enough of romantic love
Yeah, I'd give it up, yeah, I'd give it up
For a miracle, miracle drug

Miracle, miracle drug

    My InterpretationI know this song is supposed to be about musical influences. But I have a feeling that was superimposed over another fully formed thought.

    The recurring theme of the song or psalm in the album War is present here. And the reference to Job is also here (everything I ever lost now has been returned). This sounds like a song about religious conversion to me, and includes a conversation with Deity. And it's likely a compare and contrast between that and the impact music can have on us at its highest level.

    General CommentIt's awesome that the biggest band in the world (commercially speaking) renders a tribute to an artist well known for his lack of pretentiousness and down to earth personality.


    According to Wikipedia:
    "The song pays tribute to Joey Ramone, the lead singer of Ramones who had a strong influence on Bono.[2] During their teenage years, U2 snuck into a Ramones concert,[3] and the experience of watching Joey perform made Bono feel less self-conscious about his own singing.[4]"
