You're awake in your darkest dream
I have come for you
And nobody can hear your scream
When I reach for you

Don't you remember their feet in your face
Before they have carved you in stone
And don't you remember your sweat and your pain

When you were drawn to the bone
When you were left all alone

Living on a dream
Dying for an angel
Reach out
Waiting for a miracle
No sign of wings
As you turn your back on me

Living on a dream
Lonely cold and dire
Head up
Feet down in the fire
Giving till you're gone
Dying for an angel
Every day

Where do we go from the apogee?
What do we leave behind?
And how will I stand what I have to see?
This reflection of mine

Collateral damage: your sacrifice
Gonna learn to fly; unlearn to fall
Gotta tear down the walls of love and lies

You have come on your own
You will go on all alone

Living on a dream
Dying for an angel
Reach out
Waiting for a miracle
No sign of wings
As you turn your back on me

Living on a dream
Lonely cold and tired
Head up
Feet down in the fire
Give it 'til you're gone
Dying for an angel
Every day

[solo]

Living on a dream
Dying for an angel
Reach out
Waiting for a miracle
No sign of wings
As you turn your back on me

Living on a dream
Dying for an angel
Reach out
Waiting for a miracle
No sign of wings
As you turn your back on me

Living on a dream
Lonely cold and tired
Head up
Feet down in the fire
Give it 'til you're gone
Dying for an angel
Every day

    Song Meaningi interpret it as thought the narrator had out so much love and trust into someone he saw as his angel and she then proved she wasn't by turning her back on him

    My InterpretationAfter a good 20-25 listens to this song, it appears to be a continuation of wallowing about the girl mentioned in The Scarecrow. Pretty much, he put his trust in a girl and realized that what he thought she was...wasn't a reality at all.

    General CommentAniland, the video clip suggests it's the other way around. Still, we probably shouldn't make a judgement call until we at least know what Klaus Meine's character is supposed to be...

    General CommentFor the longest time, I thought this was a political song. I had always heard "waiting for a miracle" as "waiting for America".
