2Cradled in Love

This song is just amazing. The lyrics, the composition, the vocal, everything is neat. It portrays love & loss with such emotion that will make your heart ache. I know, POTF has some pretty awesome songs. But this one deserves to be in the top ten, at the very least.

Oh come on! This song must easily be in the top 5! POTF's finest song in terms of lyrics! This is their best song after CARNIVAL OF RUST! Excellent lyrics, beautiful and soulful vocals by Marko, fine guitar work, melodious keyboard work and pleasing drum work! This song acts like a lullaby to me! It actually makes my mind peaceful! POTF, I love you all!

The beautifully new kind of Poets of the Fall song in Marko's perfect voice. It goes on to show Poets of the Fall's ability to vary their music.

Very nice song

definitely this song is the best of all potf songs... tihs max payne 2 theme song transfixes me whenever I hear it...

This has to be the best song of Poets Of the Fall. Carnival of Rust is good, but this song IS the best!

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

Actually this should have been named as Illusion and Dream 'coz thats what one gets after hearing to this. Really Great song and deserves top position

Definitely should have been amongst the top three... Awesome song... Always manages to make me energetic...

This is the best song I have listened of Poets Of The Fall.

5Given and Denied

This is the best song ever. No wonder, it is from the best band! The meaning of the lyrics and the music is mind blowing. This is my favourite song and I love the poets for giving the world such meaningful music. All hail Marko, Olli, Captain, Jaska, Jani and Jari (aka Poets of the Fall)!

Come on! This has to be one of their best songs ever... Its just heavenly. Please vote for this guys.
Superb song, superb vocals-an amazing experience!

Carnival of Rust and Cradled in love are without doubt really awesome songs, but because they're already on top, and this extremely, if not equally, awesome song is not where its supposed to be, I'm voting! Wish I could vote for Sleep and Late goodbye too. 15 minute flame... Aa there are so many of them!

My fave song I just love it!

6Temple of Thought

This song is just so amazing! I used to love Carnival of Rust and Lift, but since I the day I listened this song, it's on the top of my "Most Played" list! Awesome song! Deserves to be on the top spot!

This song is just too good. Should've been at the top of the list. Once you listen to this song you just can't but like it.

This is one of the best Poets Of the Fall songs! Try it, people, you'll fall in love with it. It does something to you, gives an amazing feeling. The lyrics is good too!

I can't believe this song is not in top 3! hell yeah, I love poets of the fall.

This song is amazing... Simply amazing. Even more if you played Alan Wake 360's game. Highly recommended, Check the official video too!

I found this song while playing Alan Wake, and I fell in the moment the music started. This has got to be my all time favorite song, hands down. It's playing on my iPod no matter the mood. The different slow and faster pace within song just amplify the sheer beauty of it. Wonderful song, deserves to be #1!

Such an amazing song it is really incredible. I listen to it daily because the lyrics reminds me that people actually care about me. It's my favourite song by Poets of the Fall

Heard this song from Alan Wake and loved it... Awesome lyrics and the rock music.

This song helps me drift off into the sweetest sleep no matter how hard my day turned out to be! It's like a great lullaby! Do listen to it!

This song can give you peace and comfort! I really was impressed the first time I heard it! You really can rest in peace then for sure!

This is the POTF's song I like the most. It is very touching and it forces you to listen it again and again. Although the first one that I heard was a different one, searching in YouTube took me to this one, I love it.

Simply great

This song absolutely deserves to be in the top five!
This song Is one of the best rock songs ever
A good combination of great riffs and vocals

Makes me feel hopeful and heroic.

The Contenders

11Where Do We Draw the Line

I didn't even think to listen to this song until I saw everyone's comments on here. Before then, I had listened to pretty much everything else, especially the Alchemy album. Now this is my favorite song, and it really bums me out that they didn't think to put this on what is pretty much their greatest hits album.

The song always makes me calm
The lyrical song by the poets of the fall ever!...
Am really addicted to the song! Awesome

This is really an awesome song.. I've heard it many times.. The lyrics are superb.. You can really compare it to cradled in love... And yes.. Many people haven't heard this song. So would urge them.. This song really deserves a top 5 spot.. If not top 3

This song has touched my heart

Awesome beat, awesome vocal, awesome vocal. An awesome experience overall. In my opinion, one of the very best POTF has ever composed. Ranks right up there with 'Carnival of Rust' and 'Late Goodbye'.

Great song, a symphony of acoustic and electric solo, combined with ecstatic drum beats and, as expected of POTF, beautiful and meaningful lyrics. This was the best song of the album, no doubt about that, next to Lift and Illusion & Dream.

One of the best I've ever listened to..
Should definitely be at the 3rd place rather..

13All the Way / 4U

I just love the ending lines of this song... heard the last part over and over again. its truly amazing.

The song slowly transforms from a slow and soft melody to an emotional and passionate rock ballad... The piano, guitar and Marko's voice... No words to describe it.. Would you go all the way for your love?

I'm currently in love with this song.. Especially the second part of it, so powerful, emotional, sweet, great.. I have no words... Their songs enlighten me..

It has got something that always pulls you right into it... So soulful... You just can't get enough of it in a single listening. always crave for more

14Dreaming Wide Awake

The only fault in this song is the Chorus and rest of the Song does not match! Otherwise This song is quite good enough to be in at least in the top 10 for sure.
"Another Place or Time
Without a great divide
And we could be flying deadly high
I'll sell my soul to dream you withe awake! "
Awesome work by Marko and Olli!

This song was me and my girlfriends favorite song to sing together until the day that she was taken from this world too soon. I sang it at her funeral before kissing her forehead and telling her that I love her one last time. When I hear this song so many strong emotions flow through me

This song is just so too creepily good to describe in words...

15The Poet and the Muse

Poets of the fall is an extremely underrated band. On top of that, what I feel is their best song, is completely unknown ( as it does not feature in any album). This song is amazing in so many ways. The lyrics are perfect, the vocals are beautiful and the guitar solo is jut heavenly! If poets were more well-known, this dog has the potential to be the next stairway to heaven

Should be in the top 10. Tells you a whole story (see Alan Wake) in just one song! Brilliant! - soumyanildas

Can't deny the fact that this song's just too good even if its heard the first time

I don't know why this song is not in top 10 but what I feel is this song is amazing..

16The Beautiful Ones

One of the best POTF songs ever.. Should on top three... Makes me emotional, thoughtful, pleased when I listen this song... Great lyrics, outstanding vocal of Marko Saaresto, peaceful background make the song a masterpiece... The lyrics has such kind of pleasure or power of attraction anyone would try to listen this song again and again... Really love this song

So hypnotic and surreal - definitely their best song yet! Similar to Given and Denied, but occupying a whole new level of awesomeness!

This song is so heart touchingly beautiful, so hypnotic that you'll be on the brink of tears. POTF just keeps amazing us with songs like these. This one definitely, without a doubt needs to go up.

17Diamonds for Tears

What the hell is this song doing here, so low?! This is one of the best Poets of the fall songs EVER!

"because when you're sleeping right next to me, I know you're the one
So when I hear you calling my name, I'll 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.. "

Vote this song up guys! It doesn't deserve to be ranked so low. POTF forever!

18The Ultimate Fling

Awesome 2 minute ending guitar solo, it is one of the best songs by them, and best solo by Olli. God bless you Poets of the Fall, I am so glad you great musicians exist. If you create an new album in 2013, make more songs with guitar solos. I Love you Poets of the Fall!

Starting from the intro... The tune goes totally rocking... And the guitar solo, just blows ma mind babe!... Also the lyrics have something in it... Something like, sweet arrogance is the term I may use.. The song's totally misjudged being down here at 29...

That ending solo! This song as well as Olli as a guitarist is underrated! Go Poets of the Fall. Love'em. One of the best bands in my opinion.

19No End, No Beginning

Amazing feel to it.. Great solo too.. Absolutely love it.. If you're reading this... In my humble opinion. Please listen to all the songs enlisted... I'm on a marathon right now.. Listening all of these

This song is too amazing and lyrically brilliant for words... It's constantly on replay!

The Ending Lyrics are awesome! Should definitely be in the top 5...

20Passion Colors Everything

It deserves to be at least in the first top ten songs of this list!

This song is just filled with so much life, it'd be a shame to not have it somewhere at the top of this list!

One of the hidden gems of POTF. very Underrated Song! The lyrics, the pick up, the highs, the way Marco sings it.. Just Orgasmic!

"the face I wear behind my grin"
"Money doesn't bring me joy, it's more like darling dead weight"
"it's underrated how we overrate"
