Erik Jonasson - Like A Funeral

Artist

Hailing from Gothenburg in Sweden, intriguing singer/songwriter Erik Jonasson shares and sparkles with the release of his debut album ‘Words’. A collection of intense and darkly cinematic tunes , which (as Like A Funeral) are already making waves by featuring in the season finale of TV-show: Vampire Diaries and the US hit show The Royals.

Erik reveals:

“I’ve grown up on a small island in Gothenburg archipelago where everyone is a fisherman. It was a beautiful place to grow up, in the summer you could swim in the ocean and in the winter you could walk on the ice. At lot of who I am today involves music, otherwise I’m just an ordinary bloke from Sweden.

My family has always been interested in music. My older brother and my dad played the guitar and that’s the reason why I started as well. In the beginning I didn’t enjoy it at all, I just did it because I was expected to. I didn’t play much because I didn’t want anyone to listen. As I grew older, I became more confident and started to love playing music.”

Lyrics

I used to remember these afternoons
When you sat there, by my side
You saw through my heart, through my emptiness
And you told me, to listen

"What have you done to me?" you said
What have you done?
I wanna get over you sometimes
Won't you get forward
I never forget what we had that night
And you were holding both my hands
And you said,

You know, it's just like a funeral
To say goodbye again
For one last time
You were holding my hands
And looked into my eyes
And we started to kiss
For one last time

All my light
Turned to darkness
All my gold
Turned to sorrow
All I knew
Was a lie
All I need
Is just in front of me

I know, it's just like a funeral
To say goodbye again
For one last time
You were holding my hands
And looked into my eyes
And we started to kiss
For one last time

All my light
Turned to darkness
All my gold
Turned to sorrow
All I knew
Was a lie
All I need
Is just in front of me

Testo

Ricordavo questi pomeriggi
Quando ti sei seduta lì, al mio fianco
Hai visto attraverso il mio cuore, attraverso il mio vuoto
E tu mi hai detto di ascoltare

"Cosa mi hai fatto?" tu hai detto
Cos'hai fatto?
A volte voglio dimenticarti
Non vuoi andare avanti
Non dimentico mai quello che abbiamo avuto quella notte
E mi tenevi entrambe le mani
E tu hai detto

Sai, è proprio come un funerale
Per dirci addio di nuovo
Per un ultima volta
Mi stavi tenendo le mani
E mi guardò negli occhi
E abbiamo iniziato a baciarci
Per un ultima volta

Tutta la mia luce
Trasformata nell'oscurità
Tutto il mio oro
Trasformato in dolore
Tutto quello che sapevo
Era una bugia
Tutto ciò di cui ho bisogno
È proprio di fronte a me

Lo so, è proprio come un funerale
Per salutarci di nuovo
Per un ultima volta
Mi stavi tenendo le mani
E mi guardò negli occhi
E abbiamo iniziato a baciarci
Per un ultima volta

Tutta la mia luce
Trasformata nell'oscurità
Tutto il mio oro
Trasformato in dolore
Tutto quello che sapevo
Era una bugia
Tutto ciò di cui ho bisogno
È proprio di fronte a me
