Scorpions - Send Me An Angel - Meaning of the song
“Send Me an Angel” was written by Scorpions’ members Klaus Meine and Rudolf Schenker.
And the track was produced by one Keith Olsen.
This song appears on the Scorpions’ album “Crazy World”. And being released on 17 September 1991, it was the fourth single issued from the project. FYI, the iconic song “Wind of Change” was also one of the singles from “Crazy World”.
The labels behind “Send Me an Angel” is Mercury Records and Vertigo Records.
A different, orchestral version of this song appears on another Scorpions’ album, “Moment of Glory” (2000), which they dropped in partnership with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
“Send Me an Angel” made it onto the Billboard Hot 100 and UK Singles Chart in addition to charting in almost 10 other countries. This includes the Scorpions’ homeland of Germany, where the song peaked at number five on the Official German Charts.
A simple way of looking at this song is that the singer has decided, at the advice of someone wiser than himself, to set out on something tantamount to his life’s mission. However, the mission itself comes from the singer’s own internal urgings, i.e. his inner voice. And the wise man, who is compelling him to go forth, is also giving him instructions on how to successfully go about reaching his destiny. However, due to the plethora of dangers he will encounter along the way, the singer is also asking for divine help, i.e. “an angel”, to help achieve his purpose.
Send Me An Angel - Lyrics
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 you 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 you 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
