Poets of the Fall – The Ballad of Jeremiah Peacekeeper (Live w/ Lyrics)


This next song is one of my personal favorites It’s a story about a real life hero who grew up through much trouble
and turbulence in his life But all he ever gave out was the good in his heart and the love that he felt This is The Ballad of Jeremiah Peacekeeper He stares out the window, blank as a canvas Made up in the sunlight and swirling smoke and ash He waits for a breath now, taking his time, he sees an eternity in a blink of an eye And for him this life is made of time and choices And endless blend of vistas
painted bright with memories The here and now will bow to him to only serve one purpose To keep your peace He takes on the world all in a stride, and your wounds will be his scars So won’t you remember when the night comes He will need your open arms For to be invincible, he needs your love He stands in the doorway, quiet like yesterday With forgotten thoughts become a mystery
and nightmares locked away He looks like a gunman, but his view is much too wide For such a solution, so he fights without a six gun on his side And all the while his stars and moon shine brightly Outside the desert wails a curse of rage and jealousy And yet tomorrow comes along
and shifts to serve his purpose To keep your peace He takes on the world all in a stride, and your wounds will be his scars So won’t you remember when the night comes He will need your open arms For to be invincible, he needs your love He takes on the world all in a stride, and your wounds will be his scars So won’t you remember when the night comes He will need your open arms For to be invincible, he needs your love He takes on the world all in a stride, and your wounds will be his scars So won’t you remember when the night comes He will need your open arms For to be invincible, he needs your love For to be invincible, he needs your love Jeremiah…

  1. I can't say it's my favorite song, because… I love them all)), but "Ballad" was definitely special for me))

  2. This is one of my favorite songs, too. But then there are very few songs you have done that I don't like. Almost wish I lived in Europe so I could see you in concert but, alas, I live in a remote part of the United States.

  3. Such a beautiful, strong and heartwarming song! It sends shivers all over the body, make you cry and smile at the same time. It's truly astonishing creation! Can't stop to listen this one. By the way, live version is incredible! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

  4. It's not my personal favourite, but one that i appreciate. For me the most personal is "where do we draw a line". But this song have a place in my heart. Thank you!

  5. I fall more and more in love with them every time I hear their songs. Each time I think it isn't possible to love them more but I do…

  6. I really love this song, but the proper meaning is lost on me. I can tell there are themes of sacrifice, love and overwhelming odds but just can't quite put my finger on it. If anyone would explain so I could take this in to the fullest it would be nice.

  7. Please… Release again "Rebirth'" song. . I miss this song So much! ❣️
    In YouTube there is no more that song.

  8. This song takes you to places. Places where you shouldn't step into if you've got a scarred heart. It saddens you and then at the same time fills you up with hope!

  9. 1:15 Just look at that motion. He's a naturally talented actor. He needs to be in movies. Movies that are about psychopath killers or jesters. He'd be perfect!

  10. Thank you for the pulse-lowering song today. 6 weeks of 25-29°C is making me drink beer, and need a fix- point to get to work,, your song calmed me down 👍
    ..no need to say, but exellent guitarplaying by bouth guy's, and the singing. …you are nominated for a Finlandia Rose, and a Millennium Price, so take loan's and make music, it will be history one day !

  11. love this touches my soul 💜💜💜💜🙏🏼❤️❤️❤️🙏🏼💙❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  13. Dear POETS! 🎤

    Your voices give me the power to live and create. After the concert in St. Petersburg, my husband decided to grow hair and pump up like Jaska Mäkinen. 🧔🏻 I decided to live, how I wanted, not to be liked by other people.

    The concert was really powerful! 🔥🔥🔥 But I was also waiting for The ballad of Jeremiah Peacekeeper. 🎼

    It’s my favorite song, the melody of my soul … How often do we sacrifice ourselves, forgetting everything, without demanding anything in return. The only thing without which this is impossible is the love of these people. 💜

    You are awesome! Thank you for yours souls, voice, texts and self-irony. 🙌🏻

  14. BEST song in the world..This is actually the best song in the world..None other song can beat this song..

  15. Wow, this song was played amazingly live. It sounds even better than the Studio version, I'm in shock. I need to see them live.

  16. Wow Marko really pushed himself above and beyond this time. Guess he wasn't satisfied just singing it the same old way. Gotta love that. The whole band is fantastic and they evolve and transform every time they go out on stage.
