"The Funeral Song" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
I dumped you again
I don't understand
It's happened before
Can't take it no more

These foolish games
Always end up in confusion
I'll take you back
Just to leave you once again

I died in my dreams
What's that supposed to mean?
Got lost in the fire
I died in my dreams
Reaching out for your hand
My fatal desire

I've failed you again
Cause I let you stay
I used to pretend
That I felt OK

Just one big lie
Such a perfect illusion
I made you mine
Just to hurt you once again

I died in my dreams
What's that supposed to mean?
Got lost in the fire
I died in my dreams
Reaching out for your hand
My fatal desire...

    General CommentGood song, but a little sloppy lyrics.. Listen to it yourself, first all these amazingly beautiful stringed instruments as an intro, and then it falls BAM with his "I dumped you again". Couldn't he have written a little more... proper lyrics for music like this?

    General Commentlike to mention that i love lauri.... feathers and all...

    this song really reminds me of an ex boyfriend i've got... we dated for altogether roughly 15 months, over a span of just under two years... we broke up three times, the third only a few days ago...

    the verses are how i feel...or used to... when we would get back together only to break up again...

    General Commentkevlar_soul - I have to agree with your last comment. I did find it a little...blunt. But we have to keep in mind that they are foreign and possibly not as familiar with the English language. (But considering some of the other stuff they've produced, they don't seem to have an excuse. lol) Perhaps it is done deliberately for a more striking effect.
    Still, I think the lyrics for the chorus are beautiful and the whole song definitely lives up to the Rasmus' usual amazing quality.

    General Commentok well obviously it is about heartache for two people one feels that they have hurt the other too many times therefore failing them

    General CommentI feel what you're saying Desaparecida... that same thing happens to me and my ex. Been together for 3 years in total but we broke up about 12 times or more in between them all! Lol... yeah it was all kinds of crazy... but in all reality it was worth all the pain and trouble 'cause you learn so much form it all. You grow up! But I love the song! It's gorgeously sung and so meaningful to me.
