Gas and blood
Is all I've got
In you I trust
The final exit's
Passin' by
The wheels run free
Under me
It's you I feel
A million sparks are falling down
I turn the wheel around

Kiss me
Goodbye
Into the light
Like a phantom rider
I'm dying tonight
So dark and cold
I drive alone
Like a phantom rider
Can't make it all on my own

Promises
I scratched so deep
In your empty seat
The sky is turning upside down
I turn the wheel around

Kiss me
Goodbye
Into the light
Like a phantom rider
I'm dying tonight
So dark and cold
I drive alone
Like a phantom rider
Can't make it all on my own

I don't know your name
But still I believe
Now it's the time
For you and me
Time for you and me

Now I'm here
No more fears
Angel, don't you cry
I'll meet you on the other side

Goodbye
Into the light
Like a phantom rider
I'm dying tonight
So dark and cold
I drive alone
Like a phantom rider
Can't make it all on my own

Hey!
I'm here with you
I am here, here
Leave me alone
Phantom rider
Always die on their own

    i think this is about a guy that fights a lot, and he knows he will die some day. and he don't wanna leave her alone , so she sings this to her.

    This one is one of my favorite song of Tokio Hotel, it gives the message to every peoples' situations that they go through when peoples' loved ones pass on, and every human dies alone without their partner. The best of all time. I like it.

    It reminds me much of the story of the motorcyclist and his girlfriend. They were riding together and the brakes werent working,but he wouldnt tell her so she wouldnt get scared.She got worried about the speed and asked him to stop. He said he would stop if she hugged him and said she loved him. She did and he put his helmet on her head. When they crashed, only the girl made it alive. Such a sad story )':

    I think this song is about a guy's last moments of life,
    He regrets never spending time with her, but with his last moments he's going to make them last.
    Phantom rider: this probably would mean that he just used to come and go but now he's here but this time he'll be gone for good; So he wants her to knwo he don't want to die all alone, so he wants her to stay until hes gone.

    ( really don't judge me on my interpretation of this ).
