"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 CommentLauri actually said in an interview once this song is about a relationship he had with this girl where he kept breaking up with her and he didn't know why, he just kept hurting her and felt really shitty about it. And he kept having dreams where he died, or something...
    This song is amazing live

    General CommentThe Funeral Song is an apology to Lauri's exgirlfriend, Siiri Nordin. The strings it has tear it apart from the other songs The Rasmus have made. It also has two versions, the other version, which is in the single, is called: 'The Resurrection', and it is even better for it has drums... I agree with simsfreg, this song is amazing live

    General CommentI don't think this song was about Siiri. I'm pretty sure Lauri denied ever having a relationship with her. I could be wrong though, I haven't been Rasmus-obsessed in a while, but I really think it was some other random girlfriend.

    General Commentsimsfreq, you're right! wooho go you! lol
    I love this song SO much, because I can totally and scarily relate to it 100%!! I had the same situation, which makes the song mean that much more to me! it was strange though because I actually wrote a song about MY experience and then a week later i bought Dead Letters and was like "woah" that's scary how it's about the exact same thing... anyways, yes it's about some random girlfriend he kept treating like shit and didn't know why.

    General CommentLauri is scene as an angel sent to take a girl's life after she has been fatally struck by a vehicle. A big scene builds up with police everywhere and a gathering crowd as Lauri slowly makes his way to the scene of the accident. Lauri opens out his coat and crows fly out; connoting death. Lauri then kneels down by the dying girl, strokes her face and takes her life.

    The song is based on a past girlfriend, who as he says in the song, dumped again, and he doesnt understand why, because it has happened so many times. he calls the relationship a foolish game, where he keeps going back to her, then hurting here over and over agian, and still doesnt understand.
    He says he has failed her because he let all this keep going on, while he pretended that everything was ok. it was all one big lie, disguised as one big illousion, and everytime he went back, she would smile, and in time be hurt again.

    ok really, i just started listening to the band, and thought this was the best of their songs, and the meaning is amazing, because, this is exactly what is going on with my brother now. with one girl, and they keep breaking up, and getting back together, thinking that they are happy, when in reality, they arn't...
