New / Old Obsession… Poets of the Fall

Poets of the Fall couldn’t have picked a better name. I was in awe, yet again, listening to their wonderful songs and music – „Given and Denied” on my way home and „Cradled in Love” when I returned to Bucharest.

This band never fails to amaze me, never fails to deliver pure feelings and emotions, through their music and especially with the help their beautifully written lyrics.

I wish I could bold all of their lyrics, but that would be tiring for the naked eye.

I will list the lyrics I love the most this time of the year, as found on their official website, and I will try to contain myself when underlining the most wonderful parts, lyrically and musically wise. Enjoy!

Ps: I really love going back home, where people are nice and helpful.

Poets of the Fall – Given and Denied

Which way to the fountain of my youth I wonder
Which way to the years I’ve let go by
Let a thirsty man drink in its memories while the water still flows sweet and crystal clear
For yesteryear

Oh to see the sun’s eclipse
on the horizon like ships
sailing way away from here
Oh just one more time my dear
Before I’ll go hear me out
Cos of this there ain’t no doubt
When it’s time for curtain call
Just before the shadows…

Fall like a leaf in the wind on the ocean
Of blue like your eyes in the twilight theater
With symphonies playing in the world without sound
We’re given and denied

Give me back my innocence cos I wish to dream again
Like I never outgrew my old playground
Where the sun sets slowly with a golden crown and the leaves sing lullabies ‘round vacant swings
Give me those wings

Let me fly once again
Like I did way back when
I would gamble and win
To lift me high above the din
Of the future we see
Does it hold something for me
I’m weightless again
Just before the shadows…

Fall like a leaf in the wind…

Before I’ll go hear me out
Cos of this there ain’t no doubt
When it’s time for curtain call
Just before the shadows…

Fall like a leaf in the wind…

Poets of the Fall – Cradled in Love

You had the blue note sapphire eyes, to back up all those gazes
To pierce my guard and to take my soul off to faraway places
Told me I’ll never be alone, cos you’re right there

We took a gamble with this love, like sailing to the storm
With the waves rushing over to take us, we were battling against the tide
You were my beacon of salvation, I was your starlight

So don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you’re alive cradled in love
Don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you’re alive cradled in love

I kept the love you gave me alive, and now I carry it with me
I know it’s just a tear drop from mother earth, but in it I can hear a dolphin sing
Telling me I’ll never be alone, I know you’re right there

So with the fire still burning bright, I wanna gaze into your light
If I could see my fortune there, you know how flames can hypnotize
Do I even dare to speak out your name for fear it sounds like, like a lover

So don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you’re alive cradled in love
Don’t cry for your love, cry tears of joy
Cos you’re alive

Cradled in love

PPS: I still haven’t seen the video for „Cradled in Love”. I am an awful fan, I know, but the music is too beautiful, I think I am kinda afraid of seing the video and it ruining the song for me.

And yes, I know that people are getting tired of my obsession regading the Poets, or maybe Angels and Airwaves, or even Glee, for God’s sake, but that’s just me. Obsessed until the end and beyond!

    • I missed that show, unfortunately. 🙁
      But my goal is to see them live in Germany, they have a great public there. 🙂

      I can see why you like Illusion and Dream, it’s also one of my favorite songs of the Poets. 🙂 Their first album was impressive, but my all-time favorite song is All the Way/4U (yeah, a girlie-girl song). 🙂
