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.

Needs to be higher! Featured on Sons and Anarchy and the walking dead. It's so powerful and emotional. Has been my favorite song for a very long time.

The Contenders

11 Under the Same Sun
12 I Forget Where We Were

The perfect song for any mood. Happy, it fits. Sad, it fits. Reminiscent, it fits. Regretful, it fits. Truly an emotional masterpiece. My own personal number one, not of Ben Howard but of all time.

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 :-)

13 Bones

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
