All The Angels Lyrics

She got the call
And then she threw her jacket on
And stormed off down the hall
They got the call
And picked him up at 4am
And tore off down the road

And all the angels say oooh, oooh
You are all to blame
'Cause all the angels say oooh,...

    To me, the song is about a guy who died in a tragically way, maybe in a car crash. He did not want to die, he loved the girl he was in a relationship with and she loved him, too. They were young adults and thought they'd have time left, they both did not thought of death or ending their own life. In the night the guy died, he was driving by car to his girlfriend, she called him up and expected him to come around. Suddenly two cars- the car of the guy and another car- collided, someone called the ambulance and they picked them up at 4am. The guy was brought to the hospital and someone, perhaps a nurse called his girlfriend up and told her what happened. She went to the hospital but her boyfriend was about to die, so she just got the time to say goodbye.
    The chorus "and all the angels say oooh, oooh, you are all to blame" means that everyone was in a different way responsible for the tragedy that happened. If the girl would not have called him up, if the guy was more attentive when he drove that car, or if the other car would have appeared a minute later, the guy would still be alive. Nobody wanted the car accident to happen, but they all did something that caused the crash, even if they did not knew it. If they all or just one of them did something a little bit different, the tragedy would not have happened so they are guilty, in a special way.
    The song is about the unpredictable ending of a young life, and the feelings and thoughts of the ones that are left behind

    I think that
    "She got the call
    And then she threw her jacket on
    And stormed off down the hall
    They got the call
    And picked him up at 4 am
    And tore off down the road"
    Is how this person's female friend, girlfriend, sister, or mother gets the call in the middle of the night because he ended up in the hospital and the 4 am segment refers to getting a call pertaining to this person attempting to commit suicide the ambulance coming to pick him at 4 am and rushing to the hospital.
    "She went alone
    And went to the emergency
    And parked her car in the dark
    They told her, please
    He only has but minutes more
    You might just say goodbye"
    is when she comes to the hospital and finds that there is nothing they can do to save him and that he will die, and so she must say goodbye.
    "And if you maybe figure it out
    Would you still explain?
    And if she said she was sorry now
    Would you still complain?
    And if you open up your heart
    And stay so far away
    But you are all the same
    And if you maybe find a better way
    To love me then
    You are all to blame"
    I think that this means that if the people in this person's life had tried to understand or figure out what was going in this persons life, or if this person had said sorry or apologized for whatever she had done, or if this person had someone that they could talk to, or felt more loved, then maybe they would have not committed suicide.
    "'Cause all the angels say oooh, oooh
    You are all to blame
    'Cause all the angels say oooh, oooh
    You are all the same"
    The chorus to me means that because of these reasons (I mean that they that didn't happen) and that this person didn't have anyone to help them, or that the people in his life did not try to help him, they are all the same and (at least partly) responsible for his suicide

    honestly, i think this song is about a girl getting the grim reapers call or something. She got the call and threw her jacket on, so maybe she was ticked by having to die? then it talks about angels and saying how "you are all to blame". i dunno, it seems like that to me.

    I think it means a girl was told by a very brief phone call that her friend/boyfriend was rushed to hospital because of trying to commit suicide but instead got injured and him and her got into and argument/broke up for him to then try and commit suicide I don’t really know but I just get the feeling that could be partially correct

    I feel this song is about a teenage guy that commits suicide.
    "She threw her jacket on
    And stormed off down the hall"
    This guy's either girlfriend, sister, or mother is called and told that he's in the hospital. She's storming down the hall because she can't believe he did this and is mad at him, but she is only mad because she is scared.

    "They got the call
    And picked him up at 4am
    And tore off down the road"

    This refers to the ambulance. 911 was called at around 4am. The 911 operator then dispatched an ambulance to his location, and they went as fast as they could to save him.

    "And all the angels say oooh, oooh
    You are all to blame
    'Cause all the angels say oooh, oooh,
    You are all to blame"

    This is explaining how everyone ignored the signs, how society has taught men and boys that expressing emotions is unacceptable and you are seen as or called "weak" or "gay" or a "faggot" and how his peers are the ones who drove him to killing himself, hence "You are all to blame."

    The guy tried to commit suicide and he was found at around 4am and rushed to the hospital. The guy either blames everyone or everyone feels they are all to blame

    It begins with a girl and a depressed boy getting in a fight (assuming they are in a relationship). The boy tries to kill himself, and at 4 am is taken to the emergency room. The girl feels guilty and like she caused him to do it.

    It starts about a girl getting a call and storming out of her house. She picks up a guy, who was in trouble and she get's angry at him. Then something happens again. She goes to the hospital and finds out the guy had an accident and is probably going to die. The girl feels guilty, like she is to blame. She thinks maybe if she said she is sorry it will be fixed but she knows that it doesn't matter anymore, she thinks it's her fault. Maybe it's also about her being scared to be told it's her fault by other people.
