Cornelia is a singer, songwriter, and ‘Melodifestivalen’ winner from Sweden.

Jakobs began her recording career as part of the RedOne-produced girl band Love Generation, who released their self-titled debut in the summer of 2010. Sadly, the group lasted just three singles in the fickle world of pop.

Undeterred, Cornelia launched a solo career in 2018, and has been busy releasing singles, performing to sell out crowds across the country, and working on her first album.

With a father who is a famous rockstar in Sweden, and a grandmother who is a composer, music has always been a fundamental part of this pop star's life.

Lyrics of Hold Me Closer

No need to apologise Cuz there‘s nothing to regret Well this is not what I wanted Guess all the good things come to an end So baby bye bye, wish you the best But most of alI I wish that I could love you less Well maybe you‘re right, I‘ll find someone else You say it isn‘t me but when did that ever help Hold me closer, although you‘ll leave before the sunrise Might be bleeding but don‘t you mind I‘ll be fine Oh it kills me I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Hold tight Hold tight Maybe it happened to fast I guess that I understand You say that you‘ve never felt this way for anyone and that‘s why it scares you to death So baby bye bye, know It‘s for the best Still I can‘t see how that would ease the pain in my chest Hold me closer, although you‘ll leave before the sunrise I‘ll be bleeding but don‘t you mind I‘ll be fine Oh it kills me, I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Could you just hold me tight I know I have to let go but just give me the night Cuz tomorrow will hurt hurt really bad Cuz I‘m about to lose the best I ever had Hold me closer, although you‘ll leave before the sunrise I‘ll be bleeding but don‘t you mind I‘ll be fine Oh it kills me I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Could you just hold me tight I know I have to let go but just give me the night Can‘t you see that you found the right one at the wrong time it was just the wrong time Hold tight Hold tight
