Cornelia Jakobs - Hold Me Closer - Sweden 🇸🇪 - Official Music Video - Eurovision 2022

Cornelia Jakobs will represent Sweden at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin with the song 'Hold Me Closer'.

Cornelia had entered Melodifestivalen twice before, in 2011 and 2012, with her former girlband Love Generation. But solo with Hold Me Closer was the first time she’d made the Melodifestivalen final. Now she’s won it, a lot more people will be introduced to the singing and songwriting talent (who turned 30 in the same week that she won Melodifestivalen), as she prepares to take to the Eurovision stage for her country in Turin.

~~~~~ Lyrics ~~~~~

Verse:
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

Pre:
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

Chorus:
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


Verse 2:
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

Pre:
So baby bye bye, know It’s for the best
Still I can’t see how that would ease the pain in my chest

Chorus:
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

Middle:
Cuz tomorrow will hurt
hurt really bad
Cuz I’m about to lose the best I ever had

Chorus:
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
