The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone) - U2



The Experience: The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone) was the song that erupted onto iTunes worldwide, to tell us U2 was back, with new energy and a new style. The Miracle is the miracle not just of newfound strength and life, but of new meaning: "A song that made some sense out of this world!"
Official Video: U2 dance, spin 3D shots, change colors and vary their background. With most of the shots on Bono and The Edge, you see their energy and verve. Close-ups and fade-ins reveal earlier shots of U2. The band hasn't lost anything, its progressed, still capable of something new. That's another Miracle.

The meaning of The Miracle Of Joey Ramone is finally finding a meaning for your life. The lyrics describe trying to get free of the herd, being afraid of not having a voice. Then in "you, brand new", there's a flash of light, an awakening. ("I woke up...") Lost in a society which has no more core values, where everything goes, to make some sense out of your life you need a miracle. And for Bono, it happened (...When the miracle occurred, heard a song that made some sense out of this world) He found a new sense, a meaning that brought everything back together. 
What he gets out of the miracle of finding a meaning to life is joy and energy that you can hear vibrating through the whole song... and a new discovery (his words) of language, religion and music

Ask yourself: Have you found meaning for your life? What's your song that made some sense out of this world?


LYRICS:
I was chasing down the days of fear
Chasing down a dream before it disappeared
I was aching to be somewhere new
Your voice was all I heard
I was shaking from a storm in me
Haunted by the spectors that we had to see
Yeah, I wanted to be the melody
Above the noise, above the herd

I was young, not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you, brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense out of the world
Everything I ever lost now has been returned
The most beautiful sound I ever heard

We've got language so we can communicate
Religion so I can love and hate
Music so I can exaggerate my pain
And give it a name
I was young, not dumb
Just wishing to be blinded
By you, brand new
And we were pilgrims on our way

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense out of the world
Everything I ever lost now has been returned
The most beautiful sound I ever heard

We can hear, we can hear
We can hear, ooh

I woke up at the moment when the miracle had come
I get so many things I don't deserve
All the stolen voices may some day be returned
The most beautiful sound I ever heard

And your voices will be heard
And your voices will be heard
