The Miracle (of Joey Ramone) primer single de Songs of Innocence


The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)
Producida por: Danger Mouse, Paul Epworth y Ryan Tedder.

Más que cualquier disco anterior de U2, Songs Of Innocence se adentra en Bono y a los años de la adolescencia del resto de sus compañeros de la banda en el Dublín de los setenta. La primera canción captura la gran explosión del despertar musical de Bono: la primera vez que escuchó a los Ramones. “Todo lo que había perdido ahora ha regresado,” canta Bono. “El más hermoso sonido que alguna vez escuché… Fuimos peregrinos en nuestro camino.” Acá suena como que la banda, muy resueltamente, no está tratando de sonar como los Ramones, a pesar que la canción empieza poderosamente, casi como “Mysterious Ways”, con la explosión de la guitarra de Edge, y es conducido por una alegre melodía y un sonorizado estribillo vocal de Bono.

Letra:

I was chasing down the days of fear
Chasing down a dream before it disappeared
I was aching to be somewhere near,
Your voice was all I Heard
I was shaking from a storm in me,
Haunted by the spectres that we had to see
Yeah I wanted to be the melody,
Above the noise, above the hurt

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
In the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard

We got language so we can’t 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
In the most beautiful sound I’d ever heard

We can hear you
We can hear you
We can hear you

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
I get so many things I don’t deserve
All the stolen voices will someday be returned
The most beautiful sound I’d ever Heard

Your voices will be heard
Your voices will be heard
