About Promised You a Miracle

This article is about the song. There is also a book of this title by Andy Beckett. "Promised You a Miracle" is a 1982 song by Scottish band Simple Minds and was released as the first single from their fifth studio album New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84). It was the band's first chart hit in the UK, reaching #13 in the UK Singles Chart and charting for 11 weeks. Their previous nine UK singles yielded no Top 40 hits in that country although some had sold well in Scotland. It was the only song on the album that included Kenny Hyslop as the studio session drummer. Mike Ogletree and Mel Gaynor contributed for the other eight tracks. The song triggered a prolonged period of commercial success for the band, during which they yielded 21 original UK hit singles in a row, up to and including 1998's "Glitterball" from the album Neapolis. It also enabled them to make their debut on the British music television show Top of the Pops. The music video, directed by Steve Barron, features the band members playing amidst colour television imagery, interspersed with a female model passing through an airport X-ray and sunbathing.

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
Only 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
