Song lyrics: Sunrise Avenue – I Help You Hate Me

I know you wanna see me falling out, falling out the window
I know you wanna see me crashing down, crashing with my plane
Baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me

I broke many hearts through out my days
Yours was the hardest one to face
Though I’ve never been a saint, I still love you everyday
Just not the lover kind of way
I know it’s somewhere in me down
This won’t be easy on you now
You could cry and you could grieve, then you will get over me
And you turn your life around (‘cause)

I know you wanna see me falling out, falling out the window
I know you wanna see me crashing down, crashing with my plane
Baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me
(I help you hate me)
(I help you hate me)

I know you wanna see me falling out, falling out the window
I know you wanna see me crashing down, crashing with my plane
Baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me
(I help you hate me)
(I help you hate me)

I’ll eat fast food every night
So I’m not easy on the eyes, yeah
I change my profile picture too, I took an ugly one for you
To help you say goodbye
To help you let go, I wear the t-shirt you hate
Let my hair grow, not in the good kind of way
I stay at home, make sure you never see me
Smile again (‘cause)

I know you wanna see me falling out, falling out the window
I know you wanna see me crashing down, crashing with my plane
Baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me
(I help you hate me)
(I help you hate me)

I know you wanna see me falling out, falling out the window
I know you wanna see me crashing down, crashing with my plane
Baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me
(I help you hate me)
(I help you hate me)

Oh yeah
I’m helping you hate me, but I can’t let you break all my bones
‘Cause baby, I’m way to young to die
But I’ll help you get over me
(I help you hate me)
(I help you hate me)

About: Sunrise Avenue

We live in modern times, in an era of technological advances and big inventions, where everything is constantly available; everyone is accessible and always connected. People from all over the world communicate with each other over the World Wide Web, and we control a large part of our daily lives with our smartphones. It’s actually ironic that in this age of carelessness, we still suffer from a seemingly banal sickness: heartbreak. On Sunrise Avenue’s fifth album, the Finnish pop-rock superstars analyse why we seem to have forgotten how to be happy and satisfied. Welcome to “Heartbreak Century”!

A good four years have passed since the Finnish band surrounding charismatic frontman and popular “The Voice Of Germany” coach, Samu Haber, released their gold and platinum-awarded, top 3 album “Unholy Ground” – their highest chart entry since the band was founded in 2002. And even the Scandinavian rockers’ completely sold out headlining tours proved to be a true triumph over European stadiums. It was just the right time for Samu to take a little (or a lot) of time out to clear his mind for new ideas after such a long period of non-stop hubbub. “I realised that I urgently needed space”, the 41-year-old singer and songwriter remembers. “Time away from Finland, from the band and from my current life. So I grabbed my guitar and travelled the world alone for two and a half years.” Australia, Los Angeles, London, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Stockholm, Helsinki, Berlin are the diverse influences reflected in the sound of “Heartbreak Century”. You can feel a completely newfound freedom in the music. In addition to the classic, immediately-recognisable Sunrise Avenue trademarks, such as catchy harmonies, rocking guitars and Samu Haber’s unmistakable vocals, there’s the introduction of modern, urban folk elements, which give the quartet an unfamiliar, fresh and light-hearted sound nuance. Acoustic instruments combine with propulsive rock to create an organic mix, as Sunrise Avenue demonstrate on their first single “I Help You Hate Me”.

“Nothing happened for a year and a half”, Samu continues. “I wrote over 100 songs in total for this album, and although they were okay, they didn’t sound quite ‘right’. We’ve always been honest with our fans. Audiences can tell straight away if something isn’t authentic. At some point, I set myself a deadline: I would work on new songs until I was satisfied, even if it took ten years. But one day, the knot unravelled with ‘I Help You Hate Me’. Sometimes it’s difficult to preserve the childlike curiosity and enthusiasm from the early days. We definitely found it again with this album. After a long time, the old gang feeling prevailed in the studio – we were all having a lot of fun. I think you can definitely hear it in the songs!” Together with three different producers, Samu Haber (vocals, guitar), Raul Ruutu (bass) Sami Osala (drums) and Riku Rajamaa (guitar) worked on “Heartbreak Century” for almost twelve months. In addition to long-standing, regular producer Jukka Immonen, tracks were recorded in Berlin, Helsinki and Stockholm with Nicolas Rebscher from Germany (Adel Tawil, Alice Merton) and 25-year-old Swede, Victor Thell (Alessia Cara, Alexander Brown).

“There’s a whole new feeling in the songs. Although you can hear many acoustic instruments, there’s a certain urban spirit”, Samu explains, describing the fresh sound on “Heartbreak Century”. “Between songs, you can almost feel the vibrations of the trams that went past the studio. In other places you can hear studio sounds and sometimes even mistakes that we just left in. Much of it is very raw and unprocessed, which gives it a very special charm”. This kind of imperfectionism lends the songs their special character. Two of the tracks were finished just before the very last deadline: “Our drummer Sami recorded the drum parts in his home studio in the north of Helsinki, while the producers Nicolas and Victor put together the rest in Berlin and Stockholm. I tried to coordinate the whole thing from my computer at home in the south of Helsinki. So we worked in parallel in three different cities in three different countries”; thanks to the Internet. Which brings us to the “dark” side of our modern life.

“Can lovers ever last in this Heartbreak Century?” is a question that takes many different forms on the new album, which Sunrise Avenue devote to the four big Ls: love, lust, lies & loss. What survives in fast-paced times like these? We live in a high-tech era of constant updates, in which real feelings seem to have become an incompatible relic from another time. “The songs are about heartache, which doesn’t necessarily always have to do with love. Sometimes it can also hurt when you’re unsatisfied with your life in general. Although mankind enjoys the greatest comforts since time began, we’re becoming increasingly unhappy. Everyone rushes through life looking for their perfect partner, perfect body, perfect job. We’re not prepared to make compromises anymore, because we have unlimited choices that make us even more insatiable. We’re globally better connected than ever before, and yet our hearts ache from loneliness. Instead of enjoying life, we virtually chase it on the screens of our smartphones.”

It’s this recognised disease of civilisation that Sunrise Avenue tackle musically on “Heartbreak Century”. It’s a return to real values, real feelings and real, genuine pop-rock. “For the first time, I really felt what an incredible healing effect my music has on me”, Haber continues. “Talking about these things was almost like a little therapy. Everything I sing is very intimate and reflects my personal experiences or observations. I’ve never dug so deeply into myself as on the new songs. Simple, unembellished words that come directly from my heart.” Just like on the previously-mentioned single “I Help You Hate Me”, which sets the new tone as the first track on the album. “Producer Victor sang the melody to me one morning and the words ‘falling out the window’ just came out of his mouth. I fell in love with the craziness right away and insisted we make a funny breakup song, just for fun. That unplanned moment changed the course and I knew exactly where this boat needed to be driven. Suddenly everything made sense! The Sunrise Avenue sound has always been very harmonious and easily accessible, while I’ve often missed a certain sense of humour in the lyrics. But that changes now! Although I’m singing about a break-up, I do it with a twinkle in my eye.”

A groove that Sunrise Avenue match with the track “Let Me Go”, which formerly had a working title of “Unlove Me” and hints in the direction of social media. The band has recorded a powerful anthem for all of their female fans with the intense song “Beautiful”, while the album’s title track features an ancient grand piano, acquired by Samu Haber just for the recordings. Along with the acoustic guitars and the catchy vocal melody, Sunrise Avenue’s new stylistic direction is particularly evident here. With its touching guitars and gospel choir, the album ends with “Home” – a conciliatory, harmonious note. “The lyrics are about a man who’s all alone in the big wide world, but when he closes his eyes, he can see his home right in front of him. And when I use the word ‘home’, I don’t mean a place, but a very special person, whether it’s his partner, a good friend or his parents. We all just need a rock in the surf, a safe haven in this ‘Heartbreak Century’. Then we’re home…”

Close to the release of “Heartbreak Century”, Samu Haber appears again as a jury member of “The Voice Of Germany” (from 19 October, Pro7). From 07/11, Sunrise Avenue present their new album live on a big tour of Europe.
