MONSOON
By Tokio Hotel


I'm staring at a broken door,
There's nothing left here anymore.
My room is cold,
It's making me insane.

I've been waiting here so long,
But the moment seems to 've come,
I see the dark clouds coming up again.

CHORUS
Running through the monsoon,
Beyond the world,
To the end of time,
Where the rain won't hurt (?)

Fighting the storm,
Into the blue,
And when I loose myself I think of you,
Together we'll be running somewhere new

Through the monsoon.
Just me and you.

A half moon's fading from my sight,
I see your vision in its light.
But now it's gone and left me so alone

I know I have to find you now,
Can hear your name, I don't know how.
Why can't we make this darkness feel like home?

CHORUS
Running through the monsoon,
Beyond the world,
To the end of time,
Where the rain won't hurt (?)

Fighting the storm,
Into the blue,
And when I loose myself I think of you,
Together we'll be running somewhere new
And nothing can hold me back from you.

Through the monsoon. Hey! Hey!

BRIDGE
I'm fighting all this power,
Coming in my way
Let it sail me straight to you,
I'll be running night and day.

I'll be with you soon
Just me and you.

We'll be there soon
So soon.

CHORUS
Running through the monsoon,
Beyond the world,
To the end of time,
Where the rain won't hurt (?)

Fighting the storm,
Into the blue,
And when I loose myself I think of you,
Together we'll be running somewhere new
And nothing can hold me back from you.

Through the monsoon.
Through the monsoon.
Just me and you.
Through the monsoon.
Just me and you.
