"Waiting on a Miracle" is a song that is featured in Disney's 2021 animated feature film Encanto. It is sung by Mirabel Madrigal about how people treat her for being the only Madrigal without a gift and her desire to be treated equally like the rest of her family.

Lyrics[]

Don't be upset or mad at all
Don't feel regret, or sad at all
Hey, I'm still a part of the family Madrigal

And I'm fine, I am totally fine
I will stand on the side as you shine
I'm not fine, I'm not fine

I can't move the mountains
I can't make the flowers bloom
I can't take another night
Up in my room

Waiting on a miracle
I can't heal what's broken
Can't control the morning rain or a hurricane
Can't keep down the unspoken invisible pain

Always waiting on a miracle, a miracle
Always walking alone
Always wanting for more
Like I'm still at that door

Longing to shine like all of you shine
All I need is a change
All I need is a chance
All I know is I can't

Stay on the side
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
Open your eyes

I would move the mountains
Make new trees and flowers grow
Someone please just let me know
Where do I go

I am waiting on a miracle
A miracle
I would heal what's broken
Show this family something new

Who I am inside
So what can I do?
I'm sick of waiting on a miracle
So here I go

I am ready!
Come on, I'm ready!
I’ve been patient and steadfast and steady!

Bless me now as you blessed us all those years ago
When you gave us a miracle
Am I too late for a miracle?
