Miracle Man

This song is by Outlaws and appears on the album In The Eye Of The Storm (1979).

This song is a cover of "Miracle Man" by Elvis Costello.
You never asked me what I wanted
You only asked me why
I never thought that so much trouble
Rested on my reply

I could tell it was the nights when I was lonely
That you were the only one who'd talk
I could tell you that I liked your sensitivity
But you know it's the way you walk

Why do you have to say there's always someone
Who can do it better than I can?
But don't you think that I know that walking on water
Won't make me a miracle man?

Baby's got to have the things she wants
You know she's gotta have the things she loves
She's got a ten-inch bamboo cigarette holder
And her black patent leather gloves

And I'm doing everything just trying to please her
Even crawling 'round on all fours
Oh, I thought by now that it was gonna be easy
But she still seems to want for more

Why do you have to say there's always someone
Who can do it better than I can?
Well don't you think that I know that walking on water
Won't make me a miracle man?

Never give you a bad reputation
Just because you never been denied
You're trying to say you've done it all before, babe
You know that you just get tired

Yet everybody loves you so much, girl
I just don't know how you stand the strain
Oh, I'm the one who's here tonight
And I don't wanna do it all in vain

Why do you have to say there's always someone
Who can do it better than I can?
Well don't you think that I know that walking on water
Won't make me a miracle man?

Oh yeah

A miracle man
Oh, you've got to find another miracle man, now baby
A miracle man
Oh-oh-oh
A miracle man
I said a miracle man
You need a miracle man
I want a miracle man
Oh lord, a miracle man
Need a miracle man
A miracle man
A miracle man
