Such an emotional song with beautiful lyrics! All of his songs are amazing but this one... Is so perfect!

AMAZING SONG. It's so dark, but beautiful when he performs it live. Such great lyrics and deep meaning.

Should be so much higher ♡ I'd probably rank it in my top three from Every Kingdom, alongside Old Pine and Only Love. This song is just complete perfection and so powerful yet relaxing at the same time

Deep, simple, powerful.

The Contenders

11 Under the Same Sun
12 I Forget Where We Were

Genius tune. Everything is brilliant from the guitar, guitar effects, vocals, lyrics, drums etc. A true masterpiece that is too underrated.

Heard it on the radio without hearing the name, keep singing the lyrics till I found out the name.

Its just that good of a song.

One of his best for sure, should be higher on the list :-)

Best. Song. Ever.

Nearly moves me to tears every time I hear it.

When he switches from "you laugh like you've never been lonely" to "you love like you've always been lonely" really moves me

'Oh you'll love him with all of your body... that's alright with me' - goose bumps yo

Great Song and one of Bens best Songs


All of his Songs are great though, best artist

This should definitely be higher on the list although pretty much every Ben Howard song is amazing. Especially brilliant when performed live.

One of his best songs by far. So original and deep. The way he shouts into his guitar on live performances is outstanding.

One of his most brilliant songs, so much raw emotion in this song, especially live.

What the hell love? why is this not higher?

Simply amazing, one of my favourite songs

From the "These Waters EP"this song has maybe one of the greatest lines ever incorporated into a song by Ben Howard
>>>Funny how distance and time they don't change at all.

So may your worries, may your worries
Never fall too loud.
And may you stay here, may you stay here
Happy in your own skin,
On the ninth cloud. <<<<<
