"If You Ever" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
I close my eyes
Lay down and sleep away
There's no return
It's my mistake
There's no use in crying
It's time to learn

If you ever need someone
Sorry 'bout the things I've done
My life goes in reverse
If you ever change your mind
When the rainy days are gone
And the balance returns

All alone
This time I walk away
It feels so cold but I know It's something I deserve
I deserve to be mislead

Breaking up the family
I know it's my fault
It feels so cold but I know It's something I deserve
I deserve to be dead

Sorry 'bout the things I've done
Changes will come in the fall
Waiting for the storm
My face against the wall
Hoping that you could forgive me
You could forgive me
Forgive me

    General CommentJesus Christ. I introduce to you the best song EVER by the N°1 of my favourites bands. I love so much The Rasmus (L) and this song really touched me a lot. I feel...identified. Yeah, that's the word.
    It has been realised with "In My Life" Single, it's hidden.
    It's about another of Lauri's apologies as many of us can see...but this one is special, because it's relationated with death. His death.
    "I know I hurted you a lot, and I made you feel so much pain, but I'm really sorry about it, and I want you to know that. I know I deserve everything because I hurted you. But please, forgive me"
    Something like that maybe?

    Keep rocking with The Rasmus. They're my everything. And pay atention, this week they'll record their new album, and it'll be realised on the next year. Cheers!

    General CommentHmm, I always link this song to those monumental mistakes we all make that really hurt the people we don't mean to and learning to live with them. At the end of the day, no matter how bad you may have messed up, all you can do is carry on and keep in mind that someday people might find it in themselves forgive you or a least give you the chance to redeem yourself.

    It's a brilliant song, always picks me up when I'm feeling down.
    Can't believe it's only got a couple of comments.. :x

    My InterpretationI read the lyrics many times and I came up with this fantastic interpretation:
    this song is about someone who's dieing. While this is happening he's thinking of his family (which is now broken because of his death), he did something which may appear wrong like telling a lie to not hurt someone. So he is hoping that while the time goes by after his death his family understands why he did those things in the past.
