Within Temptation – Angels lyrics
Sparkling angel I believed
You were my savior 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.

    This song is about how the persona feels admiration for a person so perfect in her eyes, referring to him/her as an angel, but slowly realises that the angel has its flaws as well, and all the empty promises he/she made to the persona were all but empty promises - words with no action, a lie.
    The angel broke her heart, and emphasizes on how it could have gone on for ever if she had not realised.

    I think the video is lateral represenatation to the meaning of the song because it was redempation in death. However, I believe this is can be extrapolated to all kinds of disillusionment. One can say this is What Have You Done Now? Twin, but meaner, viler and more predatory. A person that has a flair, a sense of charm or chrisma, maybe status in society, power, wealth use obfuscation to achieve his ambitions. She realizes the person or institution is a hollow lie that lacks the promise that osentesibly offered in the first place. In this failure, she rejects as she sees the methods employed, or being personally wounded herself. It becomes dog eat dog world. Angel could easily be penace or proponents here mete out justice or punishment. Ted Bundy, or Manson would be good analogue for the villain in this song.
