Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Within Temptation

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Within Temptation's, "And We Run"
The Misheard Lyrics:
The Real Lyrics:
And we run
The Story: It's even the song title and somehow I still misheard it. - Submitted by: Michelle
Within Temptation's, "Hand of Sorrow"
The Misheard Lyrics:
So many years have passed the world, the noble and the wise...
Will all our sense be just a fine?
The Real Lyrics:
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?
The Story: I wasn't quite sure about the last word, with I pretty much understood as /faj:/, so I figured my "fine" wasn't exactly correct. Looking it up, it turned out that wasn't the only thing I was wrong about :x - Submitted by: Callid
