In my opinion, it's probably the greatest song from sarah so far. I really can't think of a more devoted musician when it comes to delivering a song.
This song is is so beautiful. It shows her vocal talent. In this song she is so good at making you feel the pain of someone down in a low place because of a mistake. Such a beautiful piece of music.
This song is actually perfect! Its nice to listen to this when you're all alone and no one left for you and when you feel the emptyness around yourself...
Its totally awesome

One of the best songs I've ever heard! It's not doubt nothing short of masterpiece. It's beautifully written and performed. Every single thing about the song is perfection. From the haunting beginning to the emotion filled chorus, to the symphony of guitars in the instrumental break. It just sticks with you. You know a song's good when you don't get sick of it after the 17272717th time listening to it! It's also deep and can be perceived and interpreted in so many ways. I love Sarah mclachlan and many of her songs are amazing! But possession is by far her best in my opinion. Truly underrated song. :).
It's the "Mirrorball" version in particular that I believe is her best record to date. It's nice to see this song at the third position, but here's my take on the top 2 songs: "Fallen" is good, but Afterglow had a few better songs, namely "Time" and "World on Fire. " "Angel" is simply excellent and one of the best songs from Surfacing, but it's fairly overrated, not to mention that I think "Witness" and "Black & White" are better. I'm still glad to see "Possession" at #3.
Absolutely the best song of her career, in my opinion. The range of her voice raises goose bumps and the instrumentals are equally as sublime.

When I think of my husband I listen to this song and the angel song
This is one of my most favorite songs. Sweet and haunting brings back tender moments with a twinge of saddness.

My favorite Sarah McLachlan song of all time. Slow and soft with a lot of meaning in the words, and I especially love the chorus and the second section of the song. Absolutely beautiful.
