Poets of the Fall – Diamonds for Tears (Official Video w/ Lyrics)


In these days of manmade wonders
we still bicker over flies When you come seeking for forgiveness,
I’ll be forced to choose my side If I deny you what you’re searching,
do I do it out of fear Am I ruling out my reason,
killing that which I hold dear Out of my way I’m running,
with an excuse just underway Reality’s so daunting,
and I’ve got no way to explain Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me,
I know you’re the one So when I hear you calling my name,
why do I turn away and run I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds,
sweet happiness in tears Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears In the light of recent findings,
there’s no greater taint than grace But to relinquish all our bindings, always finds us out of place If I rested here a while more,
would you hold me to your heart If I knew what it’s meant for, would I know to play my part Out of my way I’m leaving,
another excuse before I’ll stay Reality’s applauding, I know I don’t know the right way Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me,
I know you’re the one So when I hear you calling my name, yeah,
I know you’re the one I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds,
sweet happiness in tears Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears Is it a lost cause Can we overlook this taint Are these the dead laws Like a doubt eating the saint And though I fear these shackles,
like my darkness closing in I will hold out my hands, I will hold out my hands Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me,
I know you’re the one So when I hear you calling my name,
I know the good I’ve done I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds,
sweet happiness in tears Crying heaven shed your diamonds Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me,
I know you’re the one So when I hear you calling my name,
I know the good I’ve done I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds,
sweet happiness in tears Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

  1. Чем-то он мне тут Дикенсона напоминает из Iron Maiden))

  2. @OneGoHam They also had a song in Max Payne 2, which where i first heard/fell in love with them.

  3. One of the best best there is, really looking forward to your new album.

  4. Fucking hell, you guys, stop being so awesome, this world is not ready for this, it's going to implode!

  5. I live in the states, and if it wasn't for Remedy and Alan Wake and Max Payne, I would've never heard of this band, and the unique awesomeness they have. This song is one major example. I have the album on my phone, and sometimes, I put this song on nonstop. Why don't many people know about it in the states?

    Maybe we're not supposed to.

  6. You know, what that city at the background of this music video reminds me? Gotham City: it's so dark and rainy there – and actually the only thing which divides that city from Gotham is that I don't see the Bat signal on the sky…

  7. I live in the states and it sucks that not many people here know them. They are awesome and way more talented them the artists we have in the states. Which is why i no longer listen to American stuff because all the American artists in my opinion suck. I only listen to Asian pop and rock plus these guys now

  8. Perfection! … In just 3 days I'm falling in love for  this awesome band! 
    Why am I know up to now?
    Thanks to God for AMV of Naruto that used Carnival of Rust like soundtrack. :'3 

    From Colombia I send many love to you guys. </3 

  9. I know them because "Daze" love this song, love this video and love this "character" like "joker" lol really amazing, the song is the best

  10. Harmonix recently announced Rock Band 4, and also put up a page to request a song & artist.  As a POTF fan, I would love nothing more than for a song (Or even a DLC pack of 3-4 songs) released for the game.  http://www.harmonixmusic.com/games/rock-band/request/ – That is the page, visit it and lets give these guys some support!  I submitted: Love Will Come to You, War, Carnival of Rust, and Diamonds for Tears.  Spread the love! ( I posted this on a few of the songs comment threads to try and get some support)

  11. you are right, the world is not ready for them ! Some are chosen… we are those 🙂 🙂 joy for us ! ^^

  12. For a second i heard the same voice of Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace!

  13. In Norway everybody seems to know em. Im from germany and NEVER met someone who knows them. I made 6 people buy albums.

  14. The first time I did hear from Potf was from Max Payne 2. I guess quite alot did hear about them from this game. Then later in the Alan Wake game. Still thrilling. I dislike what german GEMA does about your videos. Germans have it then so hard to enjoy your music-clips.

  15. Didn't know these guys, I basically stumbled upon Daze and loved the band! They're awesome and as it happens I usually love Finnish bands like the Poets Of The Fall, The Rasmus and Nightwish 🙂 Gonna listen to their whole discography.

  16. Learning drums, I always thought Jari's game was simple but hell, It's total paiiiiiiiiin! =)

  17. I first heard these guys from Carnival of Rust's music video, and by the way, that was a hell of a good song to get started on for them, and then I heard them in Alan Wake and about lost my shit and flipped a table and got so hype that the roof of my apartment exploded.
    Some of that may not be EXACTLY true.

  18. in mexico not much people knows poets its very disapointing actually they are great band

  19. " In the halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live … FOREVER ! " 🙂 very profound

  20. reminds me of 3 doors down.
    Only just discovered this band but i love them.

  21. I'm from Kansas and everyone I've mentioned them to doesn't know who they are. I'm so ashamed.

  22. I was introduced to their best song (according to me) "Carnival of Rust" 6 years ago and I was sold!!

  23. I haven't heard all of their albums (YET) but Revolution Roulette is my favorite till now! Psychosis, Revolution Roulette, Miss Impossible…. All great songs

  24. im from the uk i noticed poets from mad onion pc marks 2006 and i thought wow and since then ive been hooked i have all there albums. there brilliant

  25. Anyone else find it a bit weird that "Revolution Roulette" isn't on Amazon Music?

  26. Hombre esta banda es tremenda, lastima que ni en pedo lleguen a latinoamerica.

  27. Marco's voice and songs – it's really something special! Carry on, Poets! You are always welcome in Russia!

  28. la verdad no entiendo porque esta banda no tiene la importancia que se merece.. HAY TANTAS MIERDAS CON TOURS TOURS Y PUBLICIDAD y esta banda que es DE PUTA MADRE no la tiene.. AGUANTE POETS LOCO!! mi sueño es q vengan a la Argentina 😀

  29. Loving this band since I listened to late goodbye while playing max Payne 2 in 2013. One of the best ever band. Sadly way too underrated. They deserves at least 40 million fan base

  30. Great! , But sadly not even close to older tracks like "Late Goodbye" and "Carnival of Rust".

  31. This finnish guys have many awesome song like lift..so i like them.like the sounds lyrics etc…

  32. Los productores de Alan Wake no se equivocaron en absoluto al escoger esta banda.

  33. Well yes I can't have relationships sucks but could be worse…I could be a TV sitcom and partial porno being stalked for coming up with Facebook Myspace and linkaden…… seriously knew understood I'd be home in a porno being fucked with for guys and gals measuring against me….and they proved it was them sadly I didn't come up with a way to get back at them just that eventually it would be funny to just masterbate knowing if the observer is being fucking with it's social someone may get dna on there side of the screen and I'd be raped….fucking crazy the shit I not only have to think about but deal with….but there's other low points like haveing a chick sit on my lap and convince me on the blaster ride to have sex…..she was fourteen I swear I was drugged…and she claimed to be fourteen not eighteen…and I killed people……also made the girl feel like crap with my girlfriend about her giving up her virginity..so can you top that…. against me…a joke I'm not gay homo….I'm not the steps pedo I'm human not an animal but I do like to play with fire……and what can I in my innoccense and niaeveness get people to sing about….but war..I mean come on this isn't the angles opening up the last signs in any way

  34. In these days of man made wonders we still bicker over flies
    When you come seeking for forgiveness, I'll be forced to choose my side

    If I deny you what you're searching, do I do it out of fear
    Am I ruling out my reason, killing that which I hold dear

    Out of my way I'm running, with an excuse just underway
    Reality's so daunting, and I've got no way to explain

    Cos when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
    So when I hear you calling my name, why do I turn away and run
    I guess that's why it's raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
    Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

    In the light of recent findings, there's no greater taint than grace
    But to relinquish all our bindings, always finds us out of place

    If I rested here a while more, would you hold me to your heart
    If I knew what it's meant for, would I know to play my part

    Out of my way I'm leaving, another excuse before I'll stay
    Reality's applauding, I know I don't know the right way

    Cos when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
    So when I hear you calling my name, yeah, I know you're the one
    I guess that's why it's raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
    Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

    Is it a lost cause 
    Can we overlook this taint
    Are these the dead laws
    Like a doubt eating the saint

    And though I fear these shackles, like my darkness closing in
    I will hold out my hands, I will hold out my hands

    Cos when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
    So when I hear you calling my name, I know the good I've done
    I guess that's why it's raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
    Crying heaven shed your diamonds

    Cos when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
    So when I hear you calling my name, I know the good I've done
    I guess that's why it's raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
    Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

  35. My friend Andrew said he helped poets of the fall with this!! Glad he showed me 😂

  36. Just found them, July 2 2018. How have I NOT heard of them before? I'm sold!

  37. I'm happy to declare that POTF are really famous and recognizable in Greece!!! Love them!!! ❤

  38. It was a Kung Fu Panda 2 video using "Locking Up the Sun" that got me hooked on these guys.

  39. As all the Poets' songs, this one is beautiful and for me, one of the most breathtaking ones and seeing them play it live is even better
    I honestly think that those people who have put the thumbs down are either trolls or have a very questionable taste; how can you not love this?

  40. Please do a U.S. Tour! I don't care if I would have to drive clear to the other side of the country I would make the trip to see these guys live!

  42. I'm so happy I found this song. I already listened all of your songs. Every song is just poetry ..and I love that.
