There are places in our world where fiction and dreams can come true.

The Poet and The Muse

The Poet and the Muse is one of two custom songs created for Alan Wake by Poets of the Fall. The track can be heard during episode four as Wake and Barry explores the Anderson Brother's house, as well as at the end of the episode.

At the present time, with the removal of the band's Digistore, there is not a place where you can buy the song. I'll keep this page updated if this changes! However if you wish to listen to the song again you can through the game menu system; the song is located under "Playback", or listen to it HERE.


There's an old tale wrought with mystery, of Tom the Poet and his muse
And a magic lake which gave a life to the words the poet used
Now, the muse she was his happiness, and he rhymed about her grace
And told her stories of treasures deep beneath the blackened waves
Till' in the stillness of one dawn, still in its misty crown
The muse she went down to the lake, and in the waves she drowned

And now to see your love set free
You will need the witch’s cabin key
Find the lady of the light, gone mad with the night
That's how you reshape destiny

The poet came down to the lake to call out to his dear
When there was no answer he was overcome with fear
He searched in vain for his treasure lost and too soon the night would fall
Only his own echo would wail back at his call
And when he swore to bring back his love by stories he'd create
Nightmares shifted in their sleep in the darkness of the lake

And now to see your love set free
You will need the witch’s cabin key
Find the lady of the light, still raving in the night
That's how you reshape destiny

In the dead of night she came to him with darkness in her eyes
Wearing a mourning gown, sweet words as her disguise
He took her in without a word for he saw his grave mistake
And vowed them both to silence deep beneath the lake
Now, if it's real or just a dream one mystery remains
For it is said, on moonless nights they may still haunt this place
