He sings about being in a cold room and "dark clouds coming up again," which suggests that he is in a great deal of emotional pain. The chorus of the song provides a sense of hope. When I lose myself I think of you Together we'll be running somewhere new This suggests that Kaulitz is determined to overcome his challenges and to find happiness.
