Nightwish - Wish I Had An Angel Lyrics




Deep into a dying day
I took a step outside an innocent heart
Prepare to hate me fall when I may
This night will hurt you like never before

Old loves they die hard
Old lies they die harder
I wish I had an angel
For one moment of love
I wish I had your angel
Your Virgin Mary undone
I'm in love with my lust
Burning angel wings to dust
I wish I had your angel tonight

I'm going down so frail 'n cruel
Drunken disguise changes all the rules

Old loves they die hard
Old lies they die harder

I wish I had an angel
For one moment of love
I wish I had your angel
Your Virgin Mary undone
I'm in love with my lust
Burning angel wings to dust
I wish I had your angel tonight

Greatest thrill
Not to kill
But to have the prize of the night
Hypocrite
Wannabe friend
13th disciple who betrayed me for nothing!

Last dance, first kiss
Your touch my bliss
Beauty always comes with dark thoughts

[sighing and laughter]

I wish I had an angel
For one moment of love
I wish I had your angel
Your Virgin Mary undone
I'm in love with my lust
Burning angel wings to dust
I wish I had your angel tonight

[x4]
I wish I had an angel...

    One of the few Nightwish songs i really don't like at all.

    David

    What I don't like about this song is the way Tarja sounds. She sounds weird and she can do much better

  16. олег заруднев

    Качество видео не очень(

  17. S Simpson

    The only good thing about Alone In The Dark is that this song was in it.

  30. Nikozx

    so nostalgic

  31. Jeremy Barker

    Goddamn Uwe Boll! He made both the movie, and this video. It's horrible how the music video is better than the movie it's associated with.

  32. Carlos Alberto Venegas

    Agosto 2019?

  33. Arschkarten Paule

    In my opinion *Floor* as the new voice of Nightwish may be the best *compromise* between Tarja and Anette.
    Sure, Tarja is not replaceable (an educated soprano with a vocal range over 3 octaves!) - but Nightwish had to "invent" themselves new after she left the band, and in this case, they got a wonderful and clear voice in Anette and another perfect counterpart to the hard metal sounds, but unfortunately she was never been really accepted by the "old school" Nightwish fans.
    Now Floor connects 2 characteristics wich "reconciled" *all* fans: A powerful voice and a "rustic" fashion- and "body-style"...
    ...maybe that fits better for *both* - the band *and* the fans.
    If you ask me what my *personnel* opinion of all this: Well, for me Tarja and *especially* Anette had the better look (figure / face - but these attributes are of course *my* favorites) - Tarja somehow "aristocratic" and Anette just sweet.
    Floor, on the other hand, is more of a buxom woman - what let looks her stronger and maybe this represents this music style better, but this kind of women is not so mine.
    But hey, I don´t must marry her - much more important is her *voice*, and this *fits* !
    And I´m sure, most of you will agree with me.

  34. cannibale humano_ss

    2019?????

  39. Faizan

  40. Daniel Neroese

    Take guitars from this, lower the tempo a bit and we have a classic Abba song

  41. Game #Speedy01*

    2019 valaki?:D

  42. Tommy Dang

    3:13 when Marco starts gives me the chills. I love his vocal man.

  43. beatriz lucero

    ustedes impiden que otros suban el video subtitulado, entonces ustedes ofrezcan el mismo servicio y EN BUENA CALIDAD! un desastre el audio!

  44. Sean Heeger

    I wish i had Britney Spears.

  45. Doctor ibanez

    My point is, you can look so rock with a guitar, or bass or drum, or microphone, but , sorry never with a keyboard, you can try, but ... not look with the power of the metal.

  46. BEG

    still love this music 19.06.2019

  47. Breathing

    this is so cringe and i love it dude what a time

  48. Chung Horkit

  52. [501] Nova

    What's wrong with the movie? it's good.

  53. Λαυρέντιος Ψαροκάηκας

    Say what you wish about her.. About Tarja. She has a great voice, she has charisma, and she has a powerful presence. She is not only unique but she is immediately noticed. And about the band's accusations about her greed.. art is creativity and money as well.

  54. Aléxia Barros

    melhor de todas tarja
    amooo

  55. Varda Mason

  66. Emily Willen

    The most fun song to sing along with Marco <3

  67. Marek Zemrok

    Zajebisty kawalek Taria szacun :)

  68. Joao Paulo Grassi

    Seriously how come no one said anything about this movie? Like SERIOUSLY someone must have thought during production: God this movie sucks. The band is awesome though.

  69. Ivan Nikov

    Why so quiet? Make it louder! LOUDER I said!

  70. Exploding Tomahawks

    This song rules but MY GOD that movie is awful.

  71. Magnus Oddbjørn

    HEAVY METAL!!!

  72. MsMaryPatricia

    It's been years since I listened to this song and it suddenly popped into my head. Watching it now it's been edited with a movie. What is it does anyone know?

  73. Niezapominajka

    Thanks to my Twin Soul who's showed me this song. Beautiful, though I have my own interpretation of the lyrics.

  74. Keller 13

  80. Italian Dream

    I wish I had an angel
    For one moment of love
    I wish I had your angel tonight
    Deep into a dying day
    I took a step outside an innocent heart
    Prepare to hate me fall when I may
    This night will hurt you like never before
    Old loves they die hard
    Old lies they die harder
    I wish I had an angel
    For one moment of love
    I wish I had your angel
    Your Virgin Mary undone
    I`m in love with my lust
    Burning angel wings to dust
    I wish I had your angel tonight
    I`m going down so frail `n cruel
    Drunken disguise changes all the rules
    Old loves they die hard
    Old lies they die harder
    I wish I had an angel
    For one moment of love
    I wish I had your angel
    Your Virgin Mary undone
    I`m in love with my lust
    Burning angel wings to dust
    I wish I had your angel tonight
    Greatest thrill
    Not to kill
    But to have the prize of the night
    Hypocrite
    Wannabe friend
    13th disciple who betrayed me for nothing!
    Last dance, first kiss
    Your touch my bliss
    Beauty always comes with dark thoughts
    I wish I had an angel
    For one moment of love
    I wish I had your angel
    Your Virgin Mary undone
    I`m in love with my lust
    Burning angel wings to dust
    I wish I had your angel tonight

  81. Владимир Троценко

    Из трёх вокалов, как по мне , я бы отдал свой голос за Фло Янсен хотя у Тарьи есть сои бессмертные вещи. Пожалуй единственная группа на сегодняшний день, которая продолжает радовать любителей классического рока.

  82. Octavia Natalia

    Hey,everybody,I want to present you my vision and what I imagine when I hear this song.I know the lyrics of this song are about lust and sex(which I don't like and don't give a fuck about) but I have a different view mainly about the melody and the riffs of the song more than for the lyrics,and, of course, about the way this song is sung by Tarja and the other members of the band.
    I hope you'll enjoy it because this is also my life's story because I was in love and still I am with a boy who is a demon with an angel's face.


    Mental movie for ,,Wish I had an angel” from Nightwish
    :
    A girl is in the queue at the photocopy in the highschool where she studies.Suddenly,a boy appears on the stairs in front of the photocopy,and she stares at him and his beauty,getting lost in her thoughts.

    Then,I appear in there,dressed in a long dark- purple dress with a little black on it,headdressed and with a makeup like Tarja or Shanon from Within Temptation,in a like-a-gothic-princess style,but just a little bit.There is,together with me,my rock band.

    The boy hugs the girl against her approval and from here on all the story of this short movie gets further.

    The girl starts being nervous and having heart fast beatings(palpitations) when she sees him in the main hall of the highschool where they both study. She is going to faint whenever she meets him. She begins to collect his Instagram and Facebook photographs and makes a chancel with his photos,and then she gets a big and beautiful picture of him,which she puts on the biggest wall in her house,and thus,everyday,the girl contemplates his beauty and his eyes,writes him love letters and poems and dreams of an eternal life spent together with him.But her love for him becomes an obsession.So,during her classes,she doesn’t pay attention to the lessons anymore,and feels how his ghost is breathing down her neck,as if he is just in there,flesh and blood.Her teacher tells her off and warns her to behave properly and in the movie we can see how the teacher is making gestures to her impatiently.

    The boy’s ghost is following her at home,on the street,wherever she is.

    By the time,in the movie clip, me and my rock band appear in there,in the middle of a group of professional sport dancers.The band and the symphonic metal female singer(me) are,literally ,in the center of the circle made by the dancers(because,in the real life,the boy that the movie is about is a dancer).

    One night,the girl has a dream. She is walking on the biggest hall of the highschool,and,all of a sudden,all around her turns into a land in the middle of a thick forest made of peculiar trees which are like some fir trees.In the darkness of the night(because it is night),there is only a very pale moon which is not like the one we,the obvious people(Earth dwellers),know.

    Suddenly,in that thick darkness,a beautiful and shinning-like-snow angel makes his appearance.It is the boy the girl is in love with. He approaches her,looking into her eyes with passion and cunning,grabs her by her middle and draws her to him in order to embrace her. She is shivering and becomes bewithched by his look,beauty and also his brightness.But she notices that the hand which he was embracing her with,turned out into a big black ugly claw with sharp and ugly nails.In that moment,she figures out that that angel is actually a demon. The boy’s face turns out into that of an evil and scary demon,his eyes become red like blood and he catches the girl in his arms very tightly and brutally. He catches her by her throat with his claw,kisses her and thus he tries to sip (suck) her soul.

    In the room where she is sleeping,the girl is struggling terribly with the dream she has. In the girl’s room, enters a priest and the girl’s parents. The priest prays at her head and moves the cross along her body for several times.

    In this time,the band,the soprano and the dancers appear sometimes.

    Then,when the song returns strongly with the guitar riffs and Marco’s voice,in the short movie of the song,an eclipse takes place on the sky in the girl’s dream.The sun is making his appearance little by little,beyond the moon and the demon releases the girl,who faints on the ground.The demon starts being burnt in the strong sunlight because the prayers of the priest are making progress. The soul of the girl returns like a tornado in her body.

    When Marco repeats ,,I wish I had an angel” for several times(the song approaches its final),we can see how the girl is struggling and sweatting while,in her dream,the demon is burning in flames. When the demon becomes just ash and the girl’s soul returns in her body,the girl wakes up,breathing heavily(,,Ahh”) with her eyes wide open.Aditionally,the priest and the girl’s parents breathe easy too… The End
