words: Klaus Meine, music: Rudolf Schenker 
|: Dm | Bmaj7 Am(sus4)/C :|

Dm                      C                                  Dm Bmaj7 Am(sus4)/C

Just when you make your way back home
I find some time to be alone
I go to see the place once more
Just like a thousand nights before.

A                                               Dm 

I climb the stage again this night
                       Eb                       Dm
‘Cause the place seems still alive
                     C                        Dm 
When the smoke is going down

|: Dm | Bmaj7 Am(sus4)/C :|

This is the place where i belong
I really love to turn you on
I’ve got your sound still in my ear
While your traces disappear
I climb the stage again this night
‘Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down
 
I climb the stage again this night
‘Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down

Dm                Bmaj7  Am(sus4)/C   Dm 

When the smoke is going down.
When the smoke is going down.


Lyrics:

Just when you make your way back home
I find some time to be alone
I go to see the place once more
Just like a thousand nights before.

I climb the stage again this night
‘Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down

This is the place where i belong
I really love to turn you on
I’ve got your sound still in my ear
While your traces disappear
I climb the stage again this night
‘Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down
 
I climb the stage again this night
‘Cause the place seems still alive
When the smoke is going down

When the smoke is going down.
When the smoke is going down.
