"Send Me An Angel" as written by David Thomas Sterry and Richard Zatorski....
The wise man said just walk this way
To the dawn of the light
The wind will blow into your face
As the years pass you by
Hear this voice from deep inside
It's the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The passage out of the dark

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just find your place
In the eye of the storm
Seek the roses along the way
Just beware of the thorns

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

The wise man said just raise your hand
And reach out for the spell
Find the door to the promised land
Just believe in yourself
Hear this voice from deep inside
It's the call of your heart
Close your eyes and your will find
The way out of the dark

Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star
Here I am
Will you send me an angel
Here I am
In the land of the morning star

    My InterpretationThis song has a very COSMIC feeling to it. "The morning star" is the known as the planet Venus, and Venus is the planet of love, so the land of the morning star is "the calling deep within your heart", where your love resides, it is the way out of the dark, and into the light, into the dreams of your heart - "your promised land". "Wise man" is the place of wisdom that resides within you, that "as the years pass you by" you finally realize "love" is answer, it is the "dawn" of your true life, and "here I am" ready to receive my angel, my angel who is the promise of love and hope, and the angel of who I truly am inside...

    (on a side note the Scropions, may have been influence by Astrology, hence Scorpio, and the Morning Star aka Venus, which is the ruling planet of Taurus, and just so happens to be the polar opposite astrological sign of Scorpio, hmm)

    But anyhow... an absolutely beautiful song...

    General CommentI have to point out that Japan is known as the land of the rising sun and Russia is known as the land of the morning star it is possible that the song was written while the Scorpions were touring or visiting there?
    This has also been covered by an artist called sleepthief was scanning through myspace and came across this site. It was a great song to start with and the cover version is just as good in my eyes. profile.myspace.com/…
    Well worth a listen.

    General CommentI saw Scorpions + Ratt this summer on their Get Your Sting and Blackout tour (Nashville, great show). It was not too long after Dio passed (may he rest in peace) and they played a beautiful acoustic version of this song dedicated to Dio. I was struck by how what this song says is also what Dio said in a lot of his songs and stood for himself.

    I also agree with the biblical interpretations given. Land of the Morning Star, if Morning Star is indeed to be read as Lucifer, would definitely refer to the Earth. "Here I am, send me an angel. Here I am, on Earth, where I face the devil." The 1 Thess. scripture is a great way to look at the line about roses. Find peace, find your niche, but test everything in search of what is good (the rose itself as opposed to the thorns).

    Then, the last verse, about reaching out for the spell, sounds to me like classic Dio. Believing in yourself and following your heart so you can grab the spell and make it to the promised land? Come on, obvious Dio reference.

    General CommentAs far as I know, in Scripture, only Jesus is referred to as the "morning star." Lucifer is the "star that fell from heaven." Of course, those who have only seen the movie Dogma as opposed to reading the actual Bible would say that Lucifer is the morning star, but no, it's not in the Scriptures. Lucifer is not the morning star.

    General CommentLife is a hard road but if you keep an open heart and positive attitude you will find an angel in "your promised land." Life is very hard sometimes with the wind constantly blowing in your face but believe in yourself and a higher power and your dark days all be over. The thorns of the rose will hurt but it will be an experience that will make you mentally tougher and will be a lesson in love. A prayer for love and peace. Such a musically subtle and understated song from a hard rock band of this era. One of my favorite power ballads.
