Poets of the Fall - Late Goodbye

Poets of the Fall - Late Goodbye

In our headlights, staring, bleak, beer cans, deer's eyes
On the asphalt underneath, our crushed plans and my lies
Lonely street signs, powerlines, they keep on flashing, flashing by

And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye
And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye

Your breath hot upon my cheeck, and we crossed, that line
You made me strong when I was feeling weak, and we crossed, that one time
Screaming stop signs, staring wild eyes, keep on flashing, flashing by

And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye
And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye

The devil grins from ear to ear when he sees the hand he's dealt us
Points at your flaming hair, and then we're playing hide and seek
I can't breathe easy here, less our trail's gone cold behind us
Till' in the john mirror you stare at yourself grown old and weak

And we keep driving into the night
It's a late goodbye, such a late goodbye...

Poets of the Fall - Lift

Poets of the Fall - Lift

Times when I just can't
Bring myself to say it loud
'Fraid that what I'll say comes out somehow awry

That is when it seems
We move in circles day to day
Twist the drama of the play to get us by

And it feels like fear
Like I'll disappear
Gets so hard to steer
Yet I go on
Do we need debate
When it seems too late
Like I bleed but wait
Like nothing's wrong

You lift my spirit, take me higher, make me fly,
Touch the moon up in the sky, when you are mine
You lift me higher, take my spirit, make it fly,
Where all new wonders will appear

Like the other day
I thought you won't be coming back
I came to realize my lackluster dreams

And among the schemes
And all the tricks we try to play
Only dreams will hold their sway and defy

When it feels like fear... 
Like I'll disappear
Gets so hard to steer
Yet I go on
Do we need debate
When it seems too late
Like I bleed but wait
Like nothing's wrong

You lift my spirit, take me higher, make me fly,
Touch the moon up in the sky, when you are mine
You lift me higher, take my spirit, make it fly,
Where all new wonders will appear, oooohhhh

You lift my spirit, take me higher, make me fly,
Touch the moon up in the sky, when you are mine
You lift me higher, take my spirit, make it fly,
Where all new wonders will appear

Take me high
Make me fly

 

 

Poets of the Fall - Carnival Of Rust

Poets of the Fall - Carnival Of Rust

D' you breathe the name of your saviour in your hour of need,
And taste the blame if the flavor should remind you of greed?
Of implication, insinuation and ill will, 'til you cannot lie still,
In all this turmoil, before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Come feed the rain
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

It's all a game, avoiding failure, when true colors will bleed
All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don't need
I lust for after no disaster can touch, touch us anymore
And more than ever, I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

Come feed the rain...
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause I'm thirsty for your love dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah, feed the rain
'cause without your love my life ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the world is burning
Don't walk away, don't walk away, oh, when the heart is yearning

 

Poets of the Fall - Everything Fades

Poets of the Fall - Everything Fades

Silly thoughts of small deeds
Everything that once answered to your needs
The thoughtless but kind
The caring but blind
Everything fades away

Everything fades away, come turning of the tide
For your love I'm sorry
For your pain, don't worry
Everything fades away
Everything fades away

Silhouettes, false leads
That which drew you, like a crow to glass beads
Secrets spied
Wishes sighed
Everything fades away

Everything fades away, come turning of the tide
For your love I'm sorry
For your pain, don't worry
Everything fades away (Everything fades away)
Everything fades away (Fades away)
Everything fades away

All I'm saying is don't give up, you're getting so close
All I'm saying is don't give up, it's the right way you chose

Everything fades away, come turning of the tide
For your love I'm sorry
For your pain, don't worry
Everything fades away (Fades away)

Everything fades away

Poets of the Fall - Illusion & Dream

Poets of the Fall - Illusion & Dream

Look in my eyes I'll make you see 
We're drifting aimlessly 
Blind in a world of make believe 

Hear them sing their songs off key n' nod like they agree 
Buying the needs to be discreet 

I've got no hand in matters worldly 
I hardly care at all 
What's going on fails to concern me 
'Cause I'm locked behind my wall 
But you know what drives me out 
Out of my mind oh 

It's whatever makes you see 
Makes you believe 
And forget about the premonition you need to conceive 
The images they sell are Illusion and Dream 
In other words dishonesty 

If I speak ill please, humour me 
Won't rant on endlessly 
Just thought I'd try to make you see 

It doesn't solve a thing to dress it, in a pretty gown 
A stone will not need you to guess if, you're still going to drown 
So you know what drives me out 
Out of my mind, oh 

It's whatever makes you see, makes you believe 
And forget about the premonition you need to conceive 
The images they sell are Illusion & Dream 
In other words dishonesty 

So can you name your demon? 
Understand it's scheming 
I raise my glass and say "Here's to you" 

Can you chase your demon? 
Or will it take your freedom? 
I raise my glass and say "Here's to you" 

I've got no hand in matters worldly 
I hardly care at all 
What's going on fails to concern me 
'Cause I'm locked behind my wall 
But you know what drives me out 
Out of my mind oh 

It's whatever makes you see 
Makes you believe 
And forget about the premonition you need to conceive 
That the images they sell are Illusion and Dream 
In other words dishonesty 

So whatever makes you see 
Makes you believe 
And forget about the premonition you need to conceive 
The images they sell are Illusion and Dream 
In other words dishonesty 

With silence comes peace 
With peace comes freedom 
With freedom comes silence
