  1. A lot of people asking about the meaning of this song. This song is about finding the path of your heart and following your dreams through to the end, no matter what it takes.
    "No matter the cost, despite the worst odds.. There is a distance I must go…"

  2. It's not easy to hold your own against the likes of Marko Saaresto but Jay Ray, you're fantastic. Love this song!

  3. Like.
    But I´m a POTF fan, and get wet when Marco sings..
    But, this compine have a future.
    You sound´s good together.
    Stalk you soon, and hope for the same musical hight-quality music …

  4. Someone has to say it. It really sounds like a Linkin Park – Poets of the Fall song. That life jeweal that would never happen.

  5. Was listening to POF while falling asleep when I woke up with that song. Great surprise! Really loving the mix of these 2 great voices. Keep up the good work!

  6. My shadow friends, Im afraid this could be the best song I´ve ever heard, if not, comes close, very close, thank you Jay, making me feel more planted than buried

  7. I love this song! I think it's amazing! The words, the music, it just sort of makes me feel the meaning from within, if you know what I mean.

  8. 16 people have lost their minds and disliked this.
    I'm in love with this ! Have been a huge huuugee POTF fan since 6-7 years and you are amazing as well Jay Ray. Love every second of this song.

  9. QUIENES VINIMOS SOLAMENTE POR MARKO?
    EL OTRO TIPO DEJA MUCHO QUE DESEAR.. PERO MARKO.. MARKO ES MARCO ♥
    AGUANTE POETS LOCO!!!

  10. MARKO'S vocals are something really different…..and JAY RAY'S too….this Collab is the best I've heard!!!…#novocalistbetterthanmarko

  11. Really, THIS KIND OF real music Is highly underrated…..something that no bands could perform!!! And JAY RAY'S and obviously MARKO'S AMAZING VOCALS MADE THIS SOOOO INCREDIBLE!

  12. Chester Bennington voice by Jay ray, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh my goodness. ………… Chester Bennington voice, ,,,,hey Mike shinoda hey Mike, hey mike, hey Mike, Mike, Mike, new integration to Linkin Park

  13. Like a flickering light
    Guiding through a dark room
    Like a terminal mind
    Set off forever more hopeful

    This vision dances in my head
    And I toy with the notion
    Of walking into the fire
    To revel in my emotion
    There's no telling what lies ahead
    I've bid farewell to my shadow friends
    For something else that's worth more in the end

    [Chorus]
    There's a difference between the buried and the planted
    Candles and all prayers for those left stranded
    No matter the cost, despite the worst odds
    There is a distance I must go
    This moment is all that I control
    And all that I control is here and now

    [Verse 2]
    Soul searching
    Reaching deep within me
    Solely relying on the wings of fate to carry me
    With my head in my hands
    My soul remains unawakened
    And cut out the noise
    And set your mind in motion

    [Chorus]
    There's a difference between the buried and the planted
    Candles and all prayers for those left stranded
    No matter the cost, despite the worst odds
    There is a distance I must go
    This moment is all that I control
    And all that I control is here and now

    [Verse 3]
    Clearing the day
    Rearranging, shaping everything
    I found the way
    For the self to resonate
    With the clarity of an open sky
    Navigating now by the stars aligned
    With serenity, steely-eyed, fueled by the burning lust for life

    [Chorus]
    There's a difference between the buried and the planted
    Candles and all prayers for those left stranded
    No matter the cost, despite the worst odds
    There is a distance I must go
    This moment is all that I control
    And all that I control is here and now

    [Outro]
    There is no telling what lies ahead
    Some things I just can't pretend
    I've bid farewell to my shadow friends
    For something else worth more in the end

  14. A beautiful song with a full meaning, which is filled with a duet, each vocals in its own beautiful and even more gives the song the width and depth. Thank you guys for the song 🙂

  15. JAY…..when you pour your heart out with your voice…I find peace within myself. Thank you, Brother!!! God bless your soul!

  16. Just found out about Jay Ray about 3 minutes and 43 seconds ago by following a link and was not disappointed! I trust I am not alone in saying I find similarities with the late great Chester Bennington.

  17. This is an outstanding song. I love the music, the lyrics, voices. I am a fan of Poets of the Fall, so I've checked this song out because of Marko, but I instantly fell in love with Jay Ray's voice. Jay, you are amazing!!! Your other songs are also great, and I will be looking forward to see you live one day!

  18. You two have so awesome voices! I cant stop listening this master song! Thank you Marko and thank you Jay Ray 💖💪🎉👍

  19. Все, что поет Марко, все приобретает жизнь. Любая песня может быть украшена его голосом.

  20. What a masterpiece!!! Beautiful, deep, wonderful, a very nice drug to my ears. Marko, Jay, Striven, something more perfect than this??? No way, man!

  21. Striven

  22. i recently arrived to this song by chance while doing something else….. the first chords made me think of poets of the fall, didn't know why….. i was actually enjoying it all and suddenly i heard marko's really recognizable voice and had to actually see what it was i was listening to…… i now love this song and come back to it often….. both voices blend beautifully together, jay's tenor voice and marko's baritonal one, both with wings of their own, and the song has got a certain melancholia to it that makes it so achingly beautiful….. well done, you guys, looking forward to more future cooperations like this……..

  23. The song is sooo awesome,great song,great voices.Jay Ray you have awesome voice,keep going:)I really came here because of Marko,and thanks to him,i heard you:)Best wishes:)Suomi musicians are the best❤

  24. Am I the only one who thinks Marko and Jay would make excellent villains for the upcoming Bond film?

  25. I'm happy your guest star is helping you get some publicity, Jay Ray. About damn time, although it seems like I'm the only one here who knew your music before this song was published.

  26. Jay Ray AND Marko????

    Where was this song all my life????
    I honestly can't believe I was unaware of Jay Ray until a month ago.. I feel like I've been missing out so much xD
    Keep up the good work Jay!

  27. What a brilliant song! Marko and you complement each other in a strong soulful way, keep up the excellent work we need more songs like this. 💕 😍 😎 😘

  28. I think Marko could sing a phone book and it would still sound amazing. One of the greatest voices of this generation of musicians.
    Congrats Jay Ray for the song!
