Mr. Archangel, I think I heard your voice last night
You were tellin' me it was gonna be all right
Well, I wish I had your angel's sight
'Cause it don't look that that from here
So come on, whisper it one more time in my ear
Like that time I heard you call
When I was headed for a fall
'Cause I'm headed for a fall
Are your wings strong?
Are they strong enough for two?
Can you take me along?
'Cause I wanna go back with you
And do you like my song?
Teach me to fly
Or watch me fall from the sky
I'm jumpin' off to try
To make it back home with you
You'd think I'd feel a little more danger
This close to the edge
But it's been quite a while
I been camped out here on this ledge
So I'm glad you came
Cause I could use some help through this part of the game
I've served my time, now I want what's mine
So pour me a glass of our father's wine
We'll raise a toast to our gracious host
The father, the son, the holy ghost
I know there's no goin' back, I'm fine with that
I'm done there anyway
And my life don't feel worth a penny today
And so, and so I pray...
(Bridge & Chorus)
Can I take some shelter underneath your wings?
Would it be too much to ask for you to hold me and sing
I'm sorry I don't mean to cling, but it's almost time to do this thing
Yeah, the time for talking is done, and the time for my flying lesson has come
Oh yes, my friend
I'll do my best, you say when
You got my back, right?
Cause I will not go gentle into that good night
And Mr. Archangel, I'm not goin' back to town
I'm jumpin' and I'll just have to learn to fly on my way down
