Lyrics

Michelangelo
© 2001
Music and Lyrics by:
Stephen G. Evangelista

Verse 1
The master waited for his paint to dry
And dropped his paintbrush to the floor
He waited the sweat off of his tired eyes
And looked down to the chapel door

Verse 2
Through those doors walked Signore Sanzio
And he said, Michel how are you?
He said, I?m fine how does my ceiling look?
And he said, Michel its all you

Chorus
But, why don?t you come down from there
Take a breath of fresh air
I think God can wait a minute
I?ve got Pope Julius on the phone
He wants you stay in Rome
(and) do your fresco?Michelangelo

Verse 3
And so they walked out to the open square
To sign an autograph or two (and)
Little children laughed at his painted beard
Full of reds and greens and blues

Verse 4
After an hour, they went back inside
Cause there were colors to grind
And as he painted all of Isaiah?s face
He had Moses on his mind

Chorus
Well, I?ve got get down from here
Take the bus to downtown square
Put my hands upon some stone
I?ve got to free a dying slave
I?ve got to work on Julie?s grave
I just hope he doesn?t know?Michelangelo

Bridge
Michelangelo, wish you were here today
Lift our world up like a dome
Carve out our hearts of stone
Michelangelo? will you come out of - come out of the cold?

Verse 5
Well Michel died way back in ?64
With a hammer by his side
But, people still pass through those Sistine doors
And they can swear that he?s alive

Chorus
Oh Michelangelo ? why did you have to go?
Can you come back from the grave?
Well there?s work for you to do
The world needs someone like you
Oh, God rest your soul?Michelangelo
