Michael Raphael

This song is by Bruce Hornsby and appears on the album Levitate (2009) and on the live album Bride Of The Noisemakers (2011).

Remember those cartoons we watched when we were younger
Opposing angels sat there on Bugs' and Daffys' shoulders
And baffled and confused them with their clever banter
Now the gods a young boy saw there reappeared when he was older

And driving I have Michael on the seat beside me
Chiding me and tempting me with aggressive reckless speed
Tailgating, speeding, running yellow lights
Saint Michael is the angel who inspires us to fight

The Cherubim, The Seraphim
Saint Michael, please don't tease me
A gospel hymn for life and limb
Archangel, please release me

And lucky I have Raphael sent down to Earth to save me
Calming me and soothing me with heaven's healing grace
Courtesy and kindness, letting others in
Saint Raphael's the angel who doesn't need to win

The Cherubim, The Seraphim
Saint Raphael, please guide me
A gospel hymn for life and limb
Archangel, stay beside me

The Cherubim, The Seraphim
Saint Raphael, please guide me
A gospel hymn for life and limb
Archangel, stay beside me

The Cherubim, The Seraphim
Archangels for a ride
A gospel hymn for life and limb
Michael Raphael decide

A gospel hymn for life and limb
Archangel, please release me
