  1. Gotta love Shakespeare!! This song is like a beautiful spawn of Sonnet 18! It's modern-day Shakespeare ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This is the first song the girl i ended up loving sung to me.

    3 years later, i am left alone and heartbroken.

    Why the hell am i here

  3. even if daniel in the den is based on the bible (i think), i have allways that feeling, that it could be based on game of thrones/ a song of ice and fire.

  4. I appreciated Bastille quite a bit and then i heard this song and I flipped out its amazing!

  5. This song is actually based on Sonnet 18 from Shakespeare…Bastille does a lot of their writing based on literature, history, mythology ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. that shit ain't with lyrics ย  ย  ย  ย just kidding i love this song <3

  7. Whoever this song is dedicated to, it's a really lucky person.ย 

  8. If anyone likes connections between literature and music, I discovered that this poem is very closely linked to Shakespeare's sonnet "Shall I Compare Thee to a Summer's Day?" In the song, the lyrics are "Now you'll live through the ages" and "I have written you down, now you will live forever" which is very similar to the lines "But thy eternal summer shall not fade, Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st, Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade, When in eternal lines to Time thou grow'st. So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee" from the sonnet. So yeah, Bastille is a Shakespeare fan

  9. Where'd the original go? This is still a great song, but very different compared to the original on the Pompeii remixes EP

  10. Very true, but a song they played live called "Campus" isn't on the album, which was brilliant
