Simple Minds - Promised You A Miracle Lyrics

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Chance as love takes a train
Summer breeze and brilliant light
One love she sees
He controls on love
Love sails to a new life

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life mirrors a cure
Everything is possible
With promises
Everything is possible
Oh no

I promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering
Chance reflects on them a while
Love screams so quietly
Slipping back on golden times
Breathing with sweet memories

Promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering

Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life mirrors a cure
Everything is possible in the game of life
Everything is possible
Oh no

Chance lost pearls of great price
Take care of family
Only aches for love
Love waits for fame
In chance in chance they'll see

I promised you a miracle
Belief is a beauty thing
Promises promises
As golden days break wondering

Only love she sees
He controls on love
Life throws a cure
Everything is possible in the game of life
A burning dream
You can be Queen
Everything is possible

  2. Rea Watters

    Takes me wayyy back to groovey haircuts 😂Brilliant, love these beauts ✌

  3. Edward Hannah

    When Jim Kerr married Chrissie Hynde back in the day to me was a bit unexpected.

  4. Patrick Stocks

    Who is listening 👂 2020?

  5. david campbell

    What position in the charts did the English language version reach?

    Andy JS

    Number 13 in May 1982. Pretty good for their first Top 40 hit.

  6. Kate Deluxe

    Looking forward to seeing U guys in Melbourne-"Day On The Green" Australia-November 2020!!

  7. Lino Eric

    Bonjour !!!!!
    BON dimanche à tous !!!!!
    C'est tout simplement exaltant cette musique !!!!! ❤️💙💜

  8. Lp Oude Weernink

    Simple Minds one of the best bands ever.

  9. David Butler

    Derek of the most underrated bass players ever !

  10. 303danc

    Don't mean to be one of those guys but I've been looking for this song for forever.. so 2020 anyone??

  11. Cheeky

    What is the blonde woman's name? She is the star of this video, I've been fantasizing about her for nearly 4 decades and I can't even get her name!!! All that wanking and I can't get her name! She is stunningly beautiful, too hot for a mediocre band!

  12. Paul James Brady

    I always thought this was Phil Oakey

    Andy JS

    Phil's voice is a bit lower than this.

  13. Billy Times

    Still listening to 80's music always and will be a great sound.

  14. Martina Darcy

    Nearly 50 in May 22 in my head but very young drinking in the alderman cork city happy days they had this on big screen... 😂

  15. Roger Fritz

    I always wonder what happened to "extras" in 80s music videos--like the girl in this video. Does she now weigh 175 pounds, works a branch manager at a suburban bank, and posts memes about cats on Facebook?

    Andy JS

    She looks Scottish to me, which wouldn't be surprising since the group is also from Scotland.

  16. Alan Devlin

    One of Scotland’s greatest bands

  17. Laura garritano

    I love this song so much ❤ it reminds back in the day in the 1980s

  18. Mark O'Neill

    One of their finest.......

  19. Maja Neralic

    Nice song.... I enjoy....

  20. Rylee Wyatt

    I wonder who’s the actress in the video? She looks lovely and mysterious with that hat ☺️

    Andy JS

    I reckon she's only 18 or 19 in the video, so she could be about 56 today. Not that old.

  21. Keith France

    3rd favourite record of all time. To me , the song is about being optimistic on what to make of your life choices & what you wish for can become true or not. Mick Macneil Brilliant keyboardist. One of the reasons why I got into Simple Minds..haunting melodies.

  22. jamie foyers

    80's graphics done in music videos..those were the days!.Supposed to be "cutting edge tech" as look at what we can do!.

  23. FourSeasonsHD

    This song is even more cooking on the live double album "In the city of light".

  24. Miranda Ahnström

    Yes, it smells🎶Scotlands Pride👑 mixed with Miracle💋& Love💘

  25. John Terry

    Just brilliant 80's class

  26. quarles1939

    Listen now

  27. Adrian B

    Off to see them next year in Notts. Can’t wait


    Quando accompagnavo mia sorella grande all'aereoporto

  29. Tommy Hutchinson

    Brilliant track.but even more brilliant is the girl.who is she?

    Andy JS

    Wish I knew.

  30. Irish Kabyle



    Un gruppo che piace a mia madre

  32. tuuuuune

    2020 anyone?

  33. tuuuuune

    Choooooon my favourite simple minds song

  34. Yohei


  35. Paul Corvers

    Always return to this song. In 1982 I was 14, when good popmusic makes a lifelong impression.

  36. superskunk013


  37. backyardpainter

    2019. 66 years young still hear !!!

  38. Mr Gobrien

    2:20 - I suppose the famous nikola tesla experiment with `wireless electricity' to illuminate light bulbs was considered a `miracle' at the time (that part of the video obviously alludes to that) - but i'm guessing these video makers just wired the light bulbs to an ac current under the sand though!

  39. Ian McGreevy

    I had forgotten that Simple Minds did funk early on.

  40. Ryan Symons


  41. Margit S

    So glad you are coming to Australia, I will be there with bells on. Rock on the 80's.

  42. Mark Kendrick

    Another Masterpiece from.this incredible band.....

  43. ledsith

    KROQ !!!

  44. john Torres Araujo

    Dios que Clásico que para mi gusto Nunca pasara de moda New Wave 80' Forever

  45. dave harris

    After all these years & so many great concert memories I never get tired of listening to the Minds

  46. Jan Thomson

    My kind of music.

    The worst that can happen is we have more to help the poor God would do this to i believe this!

  52. Brian Nash

    Is Anybody With Me?

  53. Deana Marin

    Meravigliosi gli anni 80 per la loro musica e le bands che la interpretavano ♥️

  54. GonsalvoDeCordova

    That woman terrifies me

    Andy JS

    Why? She's beautiful.

  55. Yesenia Zoe

  56. Brian Nash

    Breast implants a series of the body's natural veins A port in a port out naturally circulating as using the body's own blood it's possible Seek yeshuas Wisdom this will work.

  57. Dean Tucker

    HARD TO REACH My most precious child, If you are receiving this letter, it is
    because someone loves you very much. He/She may not have been able to talk to
    you about this in the past, or perhaps they have talked to you about Me, but
    you were not ready to listen. The most important thing I want to tell you is
    that I LOVE YOU. I love you more than anyone in this world could ever love you.
    I want you to read this now and learn of Me because you are running out of time
    to learn the truth. Life as you know it now will suddenly and radically change
    in an instant and I want you to be ready. MY NAME IS JESUS CHRIST, THE MESSIAH.
    I have come to you to give you eternal life. I have come in the flesh and given
    you the most ultimate sacrifice anyone could give in that I died for you,
    shedding My blood to atone for your sins; not only those sins you have
    committed in the past, but for every sin you will ever commit. The price for
    your sins has been paid. I was the sacrificial lamb, slain for you. Your debt
    is paid. I did this so that you could have access to the Kingdom of Heaven with
    Me and Our Father forever. You were beautifully and wonderfully made,
    intricately designed, and purposed for so much more than this life. You have
    known all along that there was more, that your heart yearned for something
    greater, something that would fill the emptiness, fill that space inside and
    'complete' you. It is My greatest desire that you know that what you have been
    looking for is Me! I am the One who has created you for a special purpose and
    whose love for you will never die! My gift is a free gift, no conditions, all
    you need to do is accept this most precious gift from Me and you will then have
    all My promises. You must know that you could never do anything on your own to
    earn My love, or earn your way into Heaven. Your acceptance of Me and My
    sacrifice is all that is required. My blood covers all, and ensures you will
    live with Me always. I have given you a book- The Holy Bible - that tells you
    all about who I am. It is your instruction manual in this life, and it tells
    you not only what has happened in the past, but it also tells you what is about
    to happen to this earth. I love all of My creation so much that I always let
    you know what I am about to do. This is why you are receiving this letter. I am
    about to make Myself known in a very powerful way. Because so many have chosen
    not to accept Me for who I am and follow My commandments for your lives, I will
    shake the very foundations of all you know to be your security. This is how I
    will get the attention of My creation. I do not want you to be in fear, and I
    do not want you to miss the most important reason that you were born to be
    here. This reason is to have an intimate relationship with Me. To not choose Me
    is to choose a life in darkness eternally. I am the Way, the Truth, and the
    Life. I offer you this gift and this decision because of the free will I have
    given you. I would never force you to love Me, but you must know that to ignore
    My desires for your love means eternity without light, love, peace and joy. It
    is a life wasted and cast away. Don't waste another moment believing the lies
    of My enemy, the devil. Don't believe that life will go on continually the way
    it always has been. Time as you know it is over and I am coming to make all
    things new. The signs of the times in which you live are all around you. Life
    as you know it has become unsustainable. Everything that can be shaken, will be
    shaken, and you will be forced to make a choice for your very survival. You
    will choose to trust Me, the One who created you, or you will trust in a system
    that will fail. My Word speaks truth and all else that is not of Me will
    collapse. Please, come to Me now. Come as you are. I love you no matter what
    you have done. My blood washes away all your sins and makes you white as snow.
    I will keep you and protect you, I will provide for you and when it is your
    time, I will take you home with Me. I will only have so many warnings, and then
    the sudden-lies will be upon you. Will you be ready? The choice has always been
    yours. If you accept this free gift and desire to know Me intimately, and want
    to spend eternity with Me in complete peace and love, please say this prayer
    (out loud.) Prayer: Father, please forgive me for all of my sins. I accept your
    gift. I believe that you sent your Son Jesus to die for me, and that He is your
    only Son. I believe that His blood has paid the price for all the sins I have
    ever committed, and all those I will commit. I trust in you as My Creator and
    all of your promises. I surrender my life to you and ask that only your will be
    done. I invite your Holy Spirit to come into my heart and change me, and make
    me more like you. I want to be obedient, and I need your help. Please come into
    my heart this moment Jesus and make me a new creation in you. In Jesus' name I
    pray, AMEN Your loving Father, Jesus Christ, the Messiah (Yahushua ha Mashiach)

    Dear Heavenly
    Father, i turn to you today, I repent of all my sins. I believe that your Son
    Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins, and was resurrected to life on the
    third day, and forever more he lives. Father, I ask of you to baptize me with
    the Holy Spirit right now, Change my heart, and renew my spirit. I forgive
    myself completely, and I completely forgive others who've done wrong against
    me, and have hurt me.. I invite you Jesus, to enter into my heart. change me,
    Save me, and be Lord of my life. Right now, in your mighty name, I pray, Amen!

  59. Benjamin Thomas

    Geez, I love a rearside ride,
    Summer breeze, and shave a lion,
    I am in constant contact with the deceased soul of Joe Stalin,
    You have been re-allocated to Siberia.

  60. Craig Duncan

    Derek Forbes 🎸🖒

  61. David Hargreaves

    By far their best best best track....went downhill from here!!!.......

    Andy JS

    Glittering Prize was pretty good as well.

  62. Ricey Martin

    ONE FM Countdown voters, explain yourself as to WHY this is #51.

    Coming from the person who nominated it

  63. Pupster 68

    Just glad I was a teenager in the 80s

  64. Alexander Alston

    Who is the girl?

  65. cristiana suler

    he looks so stunning

  66. Malazgirt 1071

    That's right, Al You lost. And let me tell you what you didn't win: a twenty volume set of the Encyclopedia International, a case of Turtle Wax, and a year's supply of Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco Treat. But that's not all. You also made yourself look like a jerk in front of millions of people. You brought shame and disgrace to your family name for generations to come. You don't get to come back tomorrow. You don't even get a lousy copy of our home game. You're a complete loser!... prosper now

  67. adam shep

    Very unrated band

  68. John Smith

    Upbeat banger

  69. Kboy

    At this time Kerr and his cohorts were possibly in their element ...untouchable...anything was possible...then Steve Lillywhite ( U2;s producer) got a hold of them, elevated the thumping of Gaynor, Forbes's bass was forever drowned out..and the rest....well we know what happened.what a tragedy....At least Kerr and Co knew how to dress here.

  70. bizbazboz

    Derek Forbes, all time bass legend !

  71. Steven Pallet

    2 , 000 Years later on YOU - TUBE ,,,,,,,,, JAY - MZ

  74. Martin Norris

    Adeline Lebargy

    Martin Norris Lucky you ! I wish I could see him one day in France. This Guy is incredible on bass!

  75. Martin O'Hara

    Utterly evocative. I was 14 in 1982 and I’m transported back there every time I hear this. Aural honey.

  76. marc vanhoof

    Nice still love this song😃

  77. swordscot

    I love Jim Kerr but he had the most awful taste in clothes.....even for the 1980s

  89. rodstewartshow

    The only song on that album to feature Kenny Hyslop on drums... although Mike Ogletree's white kit is used in the video at 14 seconds in... Mike and Mel Gaynor played drums on the other tracks,

  90. christine cleavest
