Of Monsters and Men Lyrics


I am sorry this is always how it goes
The wind blows loudest when you've got your eyes closed
But I never changed a single colour that I breathe
So you could have tried to take a closer look at me
I am tired of punching in the wind
I am tired of letting it all in
And I should eat you up and spit you right out
I should not care but I don't know how

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

I am sorry for the trouble, I suppose
My blood runs red but my body feels so cold
I guess I could swim for days in the salty sea
But in the end the waves will discolour me

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

And I cough up my lungs
'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

And I cough up my lungs
'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

I am sorry this is always how it goes
The wind blows loudest when you've got your eyes closed
But I never changed a single colour that I breathe
So you could have tried to take a closer look at me
I am tired of punching in the wind
I am tired of letting it all in
And I should eat you up and spit you right out
I should not care but I don't know how

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

I am sorry for the trouble, I suppose
My blood runs red but my body feels so cold
I guess I could swim for days in the salty sea
But in the end the waves will discolour me

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

And I cough up my lungs
'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong

And I cough up my lungs
'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

This song always breaks me. The look in the mirror, the words that I said, the crying hurting my lungs, all was painful, but I didn't want my heart to fully break. At the end, I got away from the dark and I don't want to return.
So I take off my face
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
'Cause it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I cough up my lungs
'Cause they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
'Cause I don't want to stay in the dark

I love how this video is clearly different than the others.


Despite the fact that the performances of the actors from the other videos are great, you can see how they're supposed to act in a certain way according to what they are singing, according to what someone told them to do.


Here, you can see Nanna not only singing, but feeling every word she's speaking and talking by corporal expression in her most real and human form. Improvising but nailing it.


You really don't understand what is she thinking by moving this way, but it definately makes you feel something deep anyway.

These Icelanders write better lyrics and speak better English than half the musicians and people living in the US. If you read the lyrics of modern pop songs, it's pure drivel. Of Monsters and Men continues to write and create nearly perfect songs. I love this band so much.
