Within Temptation Angels Lyrics

Last updated: 01/22/2013 12:15:59 PM

Sparkling angel
I believe
You are my saviour
In my time of need

Blinded by faith,
I couldn't hear
All the whispers,
The warnings so clear

I see the angels,
I'll lead them to your door
There's no escape now,
No mercy no more

No remorse 'cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus:]
You took my heart,
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams,
I wished they'd turn into real
You broke the promise
And made me realize
It was all just a lie

Sparkling angel,
I couldn't see
Your dark intentions,
Your feelings for me

Fallen angel,
Tell me why
What is the reason,
The thorn in your eye?

I see the angels
I'll lead them to your door
There's no escape now
No mercy no more

No remorse 'cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus:]
You took my heart,
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams,
I wished they'd turn into real
You broke the promise
And made me realize
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

This world may have failed you
It doesn't give you a reason why
You could have chosen
A different path in life

The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus:]
You took my heart,
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams,
I wished they'd turn into real
You broke the promise
And made me realize
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

"Angels" is the third single of Dutch symphonic metal/rock band Within Temptation from their album The Silent Force. It peaked at #1 in Finland and #1 in the Netherlands. It is also one of their most successful singles in the U.S. along with "Ice Queen", "Stand My Ground", "Mother Earth", "The Howling" and Memories.

The video is shot in a desert in Spain. It tells the story of a group of vigilante angels who make it their mission to wipe out evil. Sharon den Adel is a woman who has been seemingly abandoned on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. She accepts a lift from a priest, who takes her back to his home. The priest is in fact a demonic serial killer, who adopts different disguises to get to his victims. All of these disguises are trustworthy people, like a doctor, a police officer, a clown, judge, or a priest. As Sharon stumbles upon a board full of newspaper clippings in the killers home, which are about his previous victims, he seemingly overpowers her with chloroform. He takes a tied up Sharon to the middle of the desert to bury her alive. However, Sharon immediately awakens as the other angels approach (the other band members) and is revealed to also be one of the angels, who was left at the side of the road as bait for the serial killer, during which time the rest of the vigilantes appear and the killer is confronted with the spirits of his victims, who destroy him. The vigilantes then move onto their next target.

The theme to the 1979 film Phantasm was sampled. From Wikipedia
