Monsters Letra

James Blunt

LETRA

Monsters (Letra/Lyrics)

Oh, before they turn off all the lights
I won't read you your wrongs or your rights
The time has gone

I'll tell you goodnight, close the door
Tell you I love you once more
The time has gone
So here it is

I'm not your son, you're not my father
We're just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine

And while you're sleeping I'll try to make you proud
So, Daddy, won't you just close your eyes?
Don't be afraid, it's my turn
To chase the monsters away

Oh, well I'll read a story to you
Only difference is this one is true
The time has gone

I folded your clothes on the chair
I hope you sleep well, don't be scared
The time has gone
So here it is

I'm not your son, you're not my father
We're just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine

And while you're sleeping I'll try to make you proud
So, Daddy, won't you just close your eyes?
Don't be afraid, it's my turn
To chase the monsters away

Sleep a lifetime
Yes, and breathe a last word
You can feel my hand on your own
I will be the last one
So I'll leave a light on
Let there be no darkness in your heart

But I'm not your son, you're not my father
We're just two grown men saying goodbye
No need to forgive, no need to forget
I know your mistakes and you know mine

And while you're sleeping I'll try to make you proud
So, Daddy, won't you just close your eyes?
Don't be afraid, it's my turn
To chase the monsters away

Sobre Monsters

  • Según una entrevista con Louise Gannon, Blunt escribió esta canción para su padre, que tenía en aquél momento una enfermedad renal crónica en fase cuatro, y está esperando un donante O+. La canción fue escrita y grabada sin el conocimiento de su padre y cuando el cantante la tocó para él en una habitación, con sólo ellos dos respondió: "That’s the way it is (Así es como es)".
