Ionne – The Last Time

Ionne - The Last Time'The Last Time' is a really excit­ing dark pop / indie elec­tron­ic work by US artist 'Ionne'. But is it? I mean the music genre, because it's really hard for me to clas­si­fy this song. In the end, it doesn't really mat­ter if the song is just really good. And the innov­at­ive mix def­in­itely didn't let me switch off. Anyway, 'Ionne' com­bines many new dir­ec­tions with clas­sic­al ele­ments and does so with a cer­tain expertise.

Lyrics of 'Ionne – The Last Time'

All we ever feared
Was killing time
Several hun­dred years
Amount to
Castles that we’ll nev­er own
And songs I write
But can­not sing myself
Our dreams of spaceships
And their secret plans
To take us some­where else

The mirror’s cold
The glass is too
Tonight I feel so old
So used to
Pain from this malfunction
Filling up my mind
And spill­ing on our bed
This little robot
Should be sleeping
Should be sleeping
Should be

Locked away in
Solitude
Like the last time
(Just like the last time)
Like the last time
(It’s always like the time)
Full of empty
Platitudes
Like the last time
Like the last time

Fall apart
Like the last time
Like the last time

What else can I drink
To ease my mind
When every thought I think
Returns to
Cards and pictures
Countless roses
Precious moments
Moments laid to waste
Don’t turn your back
Don’t walk away
Don’t be that way
Don’t be your
Self

Locked away in
Solitude
Like the last time
(Just like the last time)
Like the last time
(It’s always like the time)
Full of empty
Platitudes
Like the last time
(Just like the last time)
Like the last time

Fall apart
Look at what it’s done to you
Like the last time
Break my heart
Smile if I’m still hurt­ing you
Like the last time
Like the last time
Like the last time

Ionne about 'The Last Time'

"The Last Time" is a single from my forth­com­ing album, Fracture, and has an inter­est­ing back­story. I wrote and recor­ded an early ver­sion in the early 2000s. At the time, the themes of loss and redemp­tion came from per­son­al rela­tion­ships and the struggle not to lose myself in them. On the Fracture album, “The Last Time” reveals new dimen­sions, chal­lenges our shared attrac­tion to illu­sions and pre­dilec­tion for the unsus­tain­able. “The Last Time” is not just about loss and redemp­tion. It’s also about power… Power with a killer bassline.
