Poets of the Fall – Given and Denied (Live w/ Lyrics)


Ten years, people! How about that? I think it’s time to look back, right? 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 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 Say “Hi!” to my man, Mr.Ollie T on the guitar! 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 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 Oh, yes, we are… I know we are… Yes, I know we are

  5. Ten years, Poets!! How about that?! Rakastavat kiitokset mielenkiintoisesta ja koskettavasta vuosikymmenestä koko ihanalle Poets-poppoolle. You are <3

  6. This song always reminds me of my dad, who I lost a few years ago to cancer. We are truly given and denied. That’s the way life works. It’s amazing how one bad can inspire so much emotion and invoke so many feelings. Potf forever!
