“There Goes My Miracle” by Bruce Springsteen
“There Goes My Miracle” finds The Boss lamenting over a lost love. Obviously he was once blessed with a significant other but “disobeyed” the “rules” contained in “the book of love”. So now he finds himself “searching for (his) love”, as in she has departed from him. And he seemingly acknowledges the chances of reclaiming her or anyone like her as being slim since he refers to her as his “miracle”.
So the title basically refers to Springsteen bearing witness to his partner “walking away”. And he takes the blame for the dissolution of this romance, alluding to the possibility that when it was active he mistreated her or the relationship in general.
