There he goes again. He get's up at 6am each and every weekday morning.
Michael starts his car and he sets out in the dark
While the rain outside is pouring.
He drives fifteen minutes or so and turns on the radio
And hears some ole fellow preaching.
He starts talking of peace and love; something Michael needs more of
And he starts to do some thinking.

Michael feels the cold of a world without a soul
And wonders why he feels so lonely.
Is there something that he has missed, oh there must be more to life than
This.
He'd give all he has if only he could find someone who cares.
He recalls a childhood prayer and wonders if it really mattered.
He finds a place to kneel and pray. He gives the pain and hurt away
And suddenly he finds his answer.

Chorus

This is the story of the day when Michael gave the world away.
He found a better way to live and someone willing to forgive.
Though no one noticed here on Earth, Heaven celebrates the birth
And the angels won't forget that day.
When Michael made his getaway.

And the world keeps turning round and round the same way.
From here it looks to be another day.
But Michael knows today that something's different.
There's a holy light inside him. And the angels walk beside him.
And God Himself knows every step he takes.
He takes

Chorus

Michael made his getaway
Michael made his getaway
When you're broken have you spoken to the Lord
Michael made his getaway.
