Poets of the Fall – War (Official Video w/ Lyrics)


Do you remember standing on a broken field White crippled wings beating the sky The harbingers of war with their nature revealed And our chances flowing by If I can let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me a reason to try Turn the page I need to see something new For now my innocence is torn We cannot linger on this stunted view Like rabid dogs of war I will let the memory heal I will remember you with me on that field When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline And we fought to believe the impossible When I thought that I fought this war alone We were one with our destinies entwined When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me the reason why With no-one wearing their real face
It’s a whiteout of emotion And I’ve only got my brittle bones to break the fall When the love in letters fade
It’s like moving in slow motion And we’re already too late if we arrive at all And then we’re caught up in the arms race
An involuntary addiction And we’re shedding every value our mothers taught So will you please show me your real face
Draw the line in the horizon Cos I only need your name to call the reasons why I fought When I thought that I fought this war alone You were there by my side on the frontline And we fought to believe the impossible When I thought that I fought this war alone We were one with our destinies entwined When I thought that I fought without a cause You gave me the reason why

  1. Do you remember standing on a broken field
    White crippled wings beating the sky
    The harbingers of war with their nature revealed
    And our chances flowing by..

  2. This was the song that made me fall in love with Poets of the Fall… Now I'm listening to all their albums! Im hooked!!

  3. Poets of the Fall Music is like a ambrosial enriched spectacle. Some songs are really good others a little flat. The videos are great! This song is my second favourite after Carnival of Rust right now! This song is iconic too! I love the sitar mixed with the acoustic guitar! Sounds so lovely!

  4. From 2019-1st April..

    [Verse 1]
    Do you remember standing on a broken field
    White crippled wings beating the sky
    The harbingers of war with their nature revealed
    And our chances flowing by

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I can let the memory heal
    I will remember you with me on that field

    [Chorus]
    When I thought that I fought this war alone
    You were there by my side on the front line
    When I thought that I fought without a cause
    You gave me a reason to try

    [Verse 2]
    Turn the page I need to see something new
    For now my innocence is torn
    We cannot linger on this stunted view
    Like rabid dogs of war

    [Pre-Chorus]
    I will let the memory heal
    I'll remember you with me on that field

    [Chorus]
    When I thought that I fought this war alone
    You were there by my side on the front line
    And we fought to believe the impossible
    When I thought that I fought this war alone
    We were one with our destinies entwined
    When I thought that I fought without a cause
    You gave me the reason why

    [Bridge]
    With no-one wearing their real face
    It's a whiteout of emotion
    And I've only got my brittle bones to break the fall
    When the love in letters fade
    It's like moving in slow motion
    And we're already too late if we arrive at all
    And then we're caught up in the arms race
    An involuntary addiction
    And we're shedding every value our mothers taught
    So will you please show me your real face
    Draw the line in the horizon
    'Cause I only need your name to call the reasons why I fought

    [Chorus]
    When I thought that I fought this war alone
    You were there by my side on the front line
    And we fought to believe the impossible
    When I thought that I fought this war alone
    We were one with our destinies entwined
    When I thought that I fought without a cause
    You gave me the reason why

  5. Кто-нибудь пояснит за семейное положение солиста этого коллектива? А то мне лень гуглить. Сорян 🙁

  6. I only discovered poets of the fall a couple of months ago through a suggestion on my channel when someone suggested I listen to Carnival of rust… I fell in love with the band immediately, I absolutely LOVE this guys voice and the way he evokes such emotion through his vocals and lyrics… Instantly became a huge fan.

  7. He was AllWays there .. that's when He carried us .. we need shape up fellow humans tho coz God's back is goosed thru carrying this fat psycho mess lol shiiiittt XO .. be my voluntary addiction XO 🌷❤💪

  8. Still love this song and Alan Wake, even in 2019 it has to be one of the best xbox games I played. we need a Alan Wake 2.!

  9. Yes Remedy has acquired the rights to make an Alan Wake sequel from Microsoft. Remedy please get the poor guy out of that lake, we have been waiting for 9 years now.

  10. I came back here after hearing Remedy regained the rights to Alan Wake from Microsoft. If Alan Wake goes to PS4 it will be a day one purchase for me.

  11. Criplled wings beat the sky,
    The harbingers of war with their nature reiveliled, as your chances go by,

    In Night Springs

  12. I don’t know if they did it on purpose but the guy and girl look like the characters from Alan wake…. and yes poets of the fall sang in that video game… also an amazing psychological thriller game btw, with one of the most badass moments in gaming history with rock music.

  13. Ah the first song I listened to by Poets of the Fall and it has become one of my favorites. (note to self track down Alan Wake)

  14. 1) This group is awesome, the video is great. We need an Alan Wake movie. And a sequel.
    2) That guy is the perfect Alan Wake.
    3) The scene with the Taken at the end gives me chills. Now if only Tor and Odin were to show up…

  15. O tempore o mores. People would listen some shit than awesome music just because the song doesn t follow trends

  16. The reason why many rock bands, such as POTF and Linkin Park to name a few, would remain immortal is that they really use words to appeal to the human emotion and give the mind something to mull on. Their music is divine and meaningful, unlike the mindless prattle that we see in most pop songs where there are too many fillers for words and the music compensates for the lack of thump in the words.

  17. Poets of what " fall "?
    Did it trigger a thought or just lure you in and get you to drop your defenses.
    This is very spiritual, religious music.
    You do get that? Can you untangle the lyrics and their meanings?
    "Don't walk away". From the carnival of rust?
    What's a " Carnival Of Rust "?
    Existence? After the fall of man?
    " Ye shall be like gods ".
    And then entropy. A perfect creation rotting away.
    "Set the world on fire…with bittersweet desire."
    Just like the same lie to Eve, he seeks to deceive you.
    He just wants to take as many down with him as he can as he think of only one thought continuously, your destruction.
    He just wants you to share Yeshua's sword.

    Isaiah 66:15 For, behold, Hashem will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
    16 For by fire and by his sword will Hashem plead with all flesh: and the slain of Hashem shall be many.
    17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith Hashem.
