"Sacred" as written by Patrick Benzner, Dave Roth, Bill Kaulitz, Peter Hoffmann, David Jost and Rebecca Roth....
I'm still awake for you
We won't make it together
We can't hide the truth
I'm giving up for you now
My final wish will guide you out
Before the ocean breaks apart
Underneath me
Remember

[Chorus]
To me you'll be forever sacred
I'm dying but I know
Our love will live
Your hand above
Like a dove
Over me
Remember
To me you'll be forever sacred

You break the ice when you speak
With every breath you take
You safe me
I know that one day
We'll meet again
Try to go on as long as you can
Even when the ocean breaks apart
Underneath you
Remember

[Chorus]

Forever you
Forever sacred
Forever you
You will be sacred
In your eyes
I see the hope
I once knew
I'm sinking
I'm sinking
Away from you

Don't turn around
You'll see
You can make it
Never forget

To me you'll be forever sacred
I'm dying but I know
Our love will live
Your hand above
Like a dove
Over me
And one day
The sea will guide you
Back to me
Remember
To me you'll be forever sacred
To me you'll be forever sacred

    General CommentFrom what I can tell, this song is written from the point of view of someone who died.

    They're basically telling the people they left behind that they can be strong with out them, even though it'll be hard, they will get through it, and to remember they'll be together again some day... meaning the afterlife.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs by them. I forgot where i found this out, but Bill wrote this after he watcched Tatianic. That's why as you read through the song, there are lines like "Before the ocean breaks apart underneath me" and "I'm sinking away from you". Some people say this song has a Twincest-y (sexual love between twins) vibe to it because of the lines like,"We can't hide the truth, I'm giving up for you now." But overall, GREAT SONG!! ICH LIEBE TOKIO HOTEL!!!

    General CommentThis is basicaly Bill singing for his family. They will remain to him forever sacred, because he loves them this much. They've given him so much support and that's why he wrote this song for them.

    General CommentI think that its about someone that he loved dearly that had died because when he says " Like a dove
    Over me" like that person watching over him like an angel from heaven and also when he says "I know that one day We'll meet again" like he's saying that when he dies he'll see that person. when he says "I'm sinking I'm sinking Away from you" like hes loosing touch with that person. and when he says"I'm still awake for you" like hes saying hes waiting up for that person even though they wont meet for a while....but either way you take it, it always makes me cry :*(

    General CommentI love this song. I lost my aunt this summer and it has been so hard. I think of her every time I hear this one. We released doves at her funeral and my husband knows the man who owned them and one never came back. I like to think that it symbolic and that she is a dove watching over us.
    I love you Aunt Lynn and we will see you again some day!
