Angels Lyrics - Within Temptation

Review The Song (288)

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

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

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

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

Writer(s) : Robert Westerholt, Martijn Spierenburg, Sharon den Adel

"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

Angels.. | Reviewer: Nafisa Nazeer | 1/20/13

I've been through a lot, really. Even people I knew was the one for me became the worst human beings I've met. They seem like dark angels to me. Like a light angel that became a dark angel. I always had visions of myself singing this in a mystic and ghostly appearance. My imagination wears me out.

living in an illusion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/23/12

well this song is about living in an illusion ,about betrayal and about a broken heart which can't forget and don't want to forgive somehow it's about REVENGE.She was lost in a dreamworld and when she woke up everithing she thought she knew was gone ...the emptyness she feelt had to be filed somehow so she choose revenge.

stop the fighting! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/5/12

The song is amazing, but stop insulting twillight. They can't be compared. And just because you don't like twillight, why are you then saying that "vampires "do not sparkle, I mean, they aren't even real. So stop bitching would you? this is as stupid as peoble making wars because of religion!

Love the lyrics | Reviewer: ROSE | 4/19/12

when i first heard this song 'angels',i totaly got hooked on to it.The lyrics are amazing,i somehow could relate to it cuz it happend to me too...i trusted,i cared but all i got back ws betrayal!!!

My fic. | Reviewer: FA176 | 12/16/11

This reminds me of Dramione stuff, and this other fic idea. Tom Riddle (IE Voldemort) has a twiin sister who was killed by Charlus Potter on of Tom and his twin sister's closest friends. I imagine her singing this to Charlus.

FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: fallenangel+ | 11/3/11

finally someone who makes sense, youre absolutely right they dont sparkle and i dont know how you can relate this to... that book of sparkling vampires and nice wearpuppies, this song is about deceptive and hatered and yet love that was denied to the girl who loved the guy even when he didnt or couldnt love her back... within temtptaion is one of the greatest bands ever!! the vocals are amazing howsharon can get those high notes i just love them, and the lyrics... :) but this song shouldnt be compared to "twilight"... music is far more better than that...

What is your reason? | Reviewer: anon | 9/28/11

um... twilight people? come on!!! use more imagination!!!!
the song is fantastic(within temptation songs always are).
it's about trust .vs. betrayal; good .vs. evil; lies, deceit and hate and love.
But then... if it reminds you of twilight... (i don't know how it would?!), it's you're decision..
BTW: vampires don't sparkle, they never did, never will do.

Angels | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/28/11

This song is about a girl who was in love with a boy, but he broke her heart and betrayed her. She knows that the boy is having trouble, the "world has failed them". But that doesn't give them an excuse, they could have made better choices. And she doesn't forgive him.

Lunara tha ara | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/22/11

I love this song! It reminds me of Ivypool from Warrior Cats. It seems like this song describes her! I'm planning to make an Ivypaw AMV with this song and I'll post it on Youtube at one point.
Yes I have an account there.

Vampire Diaries, somehow. | Reviewer: Nik | 5/21/11

This somehow reminds me of Vampire Diaries, because Salvatore means 'Saviour' (Found out in books) and Stefan keeps talking about mercy in the books, and Damon seems like the one to tear someone apart. I just somehow always imagine Elena singing this, no matter what I do.

Whatever | Reviewer: Loella | 4/8/11

I understand how people can relate this too Twillight. I did that myself, and i still can't listen to his song without thinking of it a little as a more... beautiful approach of Twillight, where Edward betrays Bella in some gruesome way.
Still, Twillight or no, the song is absolutely beautiful

Angels-Twilight | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/23/11

I love this song very much! The lyrics are so beautiful and expressive! But please, stop insulting "Twilight"! Okay, you don't like it but please stop it! This is the song "Angels" that of course hasn't got a relation with "Twilight". I love both of them and of course they are two different things! Don't compare them!

Meaning | Reviewer: Abi | 1/27/11

The song meaning is different than the music video. The song is about a lie. He lied to her and she had many warnings but ignored them because she thought she was in love. But then he made it clear that he didn't love her back and he hurt her. And now karma is coming back to get him (the angels coming to the door).
