Tune Tuesday: “Angels” by Within Temptation

Every Tuesday here at The Mortal Instruments Source is Tune Tuesday where we share a song that relates to The Mortal Instruments or The Infernal Devices.

This week’s song is called “Angels” by Within Temptation and focuses on Isabelle and Sebastian/Jonathan in City of Glass.

These lyrics perfectly describe Isabelle’s guilt and heartbreak over Max’s death and being fooled by Sebastian/Jonathan:

“You took my heart/Deceived me right from the start/You showed me dreams/I wished they’d turn to real/You broke the promise/And made me realize/It was all just a lie”

I feel like this set of really describes what Isabelle was feeling when she went after Sebastian/Jonathan.

“There is no escape now/Now mercy no more/No remorse ’cause I still remember/The smile when you tore me apart”

“Angels” by Within Temptation

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

Blinded by faith
I couldn’t hear
All the whispers
The warning’s so clear

I see the angels
I’ll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
Now 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 to real
You broke the promise
And made me realize
It was all just a lie

Sparkling angel
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 is no escape now
No mercy no more

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

[Chorus]

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

This world may have failed you
It doesn’t give the reason why
You could have chosen
A different path of 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 in to real
You broke a promise
And made me realise
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end
