          A5
It was a slow day
                C  D
And the sun was beating
       A5       C      D       C   D    C D
On the soldiers by the side of the road
            A5
There was a bright light
        C       D
A shattering of shop windows
    A5   C      D    C
The bomb in the baby carriage
D         C      D     G
Was wired to the radio

                          C       D      G
These are the days of miracle and wonder
     C      D    C  D          C D G
This is the long distance call
                           C     D      G
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
    C      D       C  D   C D G
The way we look to us all
                             C     D
The way we look to a distant constellation
       G     C    D      C      D   C D G
That's dying in a corner of the sky
                          C       D
These are the days of miracle and wonder
    G        C  D   C     D
And don't cry baby, don't cry
C     D
Don't cry

A5  C D A5  C D C  D C D
A5  C D A5  C D C  D C D

It was a dry wind
And it swept across the desert
And it curled into the circle of birth
And the dead sand
Falling on the children
The mothers and the fathers
And the automatic earth

These are the days of miracle and wonder...

       A5
It's a turn-around jump shot
          C    D
It's everybody jump start
     A5    C    D     C      D      C      D
It's every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
A5                          C      D
Medicine is magical and magical is art
    A5  C      D
The Boy in the Bubble
C       D    C        D
And the baby with the baboon heart

              G
And I believe
                             C      D
These are the days of lasers in the jungle
G      C      D      C   D   C D G
Lasers in the jungle somewhere
                             C    D
Staccato signals of constant information
  G       C   D     C  D
A loose affiliation of millionaires
    C     D
And billionaires and baby

These are the days of miracle and wonder...
