"July" as written by and Valeska Anna Steiner Philipp Steinke....
Take off your shoes now
You've come a long way
You walked all these miles
And now you're in the right place

This is your party
Everyone came
Everyone's smiling
And singing your name

And the nightmares and monsters
Your biggest fears
Seem lightyears away
No, they won't find you here

I'll hold your hand, my dear
Make sure no one's gonna wake you
Tomorrow you'll still be here
No matter where your dreams will take you

And you realize
All the falls and flights
All the sleepless nights
All the smiles and sighs
They brought you here
They only brought you home

Put down this suitcase
This weapon of yours
The struggle is over
You don't need it no more
You can't remember lonely
You forgot about bored
And nothing's the same
Since you walked through this door

This roof is a blanket
That's keeping you warm
Inside the silence
After the storm

I'll hold your hand, my dear
Make sure no one's gonna wake you
Tomorrow you'll still be here
No matter where your dreams will take you

And you realize
All the falls and flights
All the sleepless nights
All the smiles and sighs
They brought you here
They only brought you home

And you understand
This neverending dance
This fight, a fading sense
Now it all makes sense
It brought you here
It only brought you home

Take off your shoes now
You've come a long way
Walked all these miles and I'm in the right place

    General CommentI think this song is about someone going to heaven after they die, and the lyrics are being sung from God's perspective.

    General CommentI feel like this is talking about that person in your life that is constantly searching for who they are. Until finally they see that what they were searching for was right there in front of them. I feel like its the perspective of a former love or even close relationship that truly longs for this person to stop running from there problems because time has healed, so they stress that they wont let anything ruin this feeling for them because he/she wont loose that person again to the road.

    General CommentI'm 99% sure this is about Valeska's move from Switzerland to Germany, just like most of the album
