Another Gem by Lady Tee from her album ‘Ivory’ 1990
an IMHO way better album then “Naked to the World”.

…………..lyrics……………

Ooh…hoo…hoo…hoo…hoo…hoo…yeah…

Last night I saw a shooting star fall from the sky
I thought of you and wished you here
I tried to see your face to free you in your dreams
But miracles need wings to fly

Do you understand a heart that beats for you
A love that knows no one but you
I say a little prayer each night and I try not to cry
‘Cause miracles need wings to fly

[Miracles need wings to fly, wings to fly]
Miracles need wings to fly
Miracles need wings to fly
[Miracles need wings to fly, wings to fly]
Miracles need wings to fly

Last night I couldn’t sleep, I didn’t even try
I called your name so desperately [So desperately]
I tried to kiss your lips, invade your private dreams
But miracles need wings to fly

Do you understand the hurt that has no end
A love that wants to be more than just your friend
I say a little prayer at night and, yes, sometimes I sigh
‘Cause miracles need wings to fly

[Miracles need wings to fly, wings to fly]
Miracles need wings to fly
Miracles need wings to fly
[Miracles need wings to fly, wings to fly]
Miracles need wings to fly

Do you understand my heart, understand my pain, listen
Do you understand, my dear, when you play those games
Do you understand my hurt, understand my care
Do you understand my mind, when I’m always there, oh

Miracles need wings to fly
And that’s why
I keep my head up to the sky
Miracles need wings to fly
And that’s why
Eagles spread their wings to the sky, oh, hey…hey… hey…

Miracles need wings to fly
And that’s why
I keep my head up to the sky
Hey…hey…hey…keep your head to the sky (To the sky)

Miracles Need wings to fly Song Review by Andrew Hamilton
Source allmusicguide

A touching tribute to Smokey Robinson, Claudette, and the Miracles, from Marie’s Ivory album, which comes from the depths of Marie’s bottomless heart whose passionate singing will cause heart palpitations; an able crew of L.A.’s best session singers and musicians accompany the songbird on the heartfelt ballad that tears you up inside for more than five minutes. This passage, in particular, cuts to the bone: “Do you understand my heart/understand my pain/do you understand my dear/when you play those games/do you understand my hurt/understand my care/do you understand my mind/that I always care?”
