Like it's not even a sad song… Reply My favorite part is at 1:55 <3 Reply This reminds me of one of my characters who likes writing poems of people she likes even though she is appointed as an assassin. Reply I’m here because of Kovu kingsrod Reply Hes so cute on this pic I can't Reply Always loved this song! It draws a lot on the Ancient Greek notion of epic poetry. Poets like Homer would open their epics with the exhortation "Sing, O Goddess," then describe the subject of their poem. The word they would use for sing is a play on the Greek word for "always," or "forever," so in the poet's mind, when they wrote about someone, they were literally immortalizing or "forevering" them. Reply Hakan fenasin koçum bu sana gelsin😂😂😂😂 Reply Love Bastille Reply Catullus? Reply Man these lyrics are freaking awesome.. Reply I just realized that they remind me kinda of The Wombats Reply my favorite song of theirs. genius! Reply Dan is like Shakespeare 2.0 because he writes stuff with deep meanings that whe don't always understand but L💜VE Reply Any artist of any format can understand this song in an entirely different, real way. Reply Basically Shakespeare's Sonnet XVII: http://www.shakespeares-sonnets.com/sonnet/17 not bad, though Reply this reminds me of some of sappho's work???? Reply my parents listened to this while they write screenplays. their first one got a huge award Reply This song is beatiful. Perfect to dedicate to someone. Good job, Dan Smith! You need a NME award, or rather, all the music awards in the world(but of course, you and Bastille deserve the awards because you are the best Indie Pop band) Reply honestly, me writing fanfictions Reply Oh look 50 heartless people Reply Dan makes a accent soumd so dang cool Reply My name is Philip, I am a poet-…wrong song XD Reply The straight version of Read u Wrote u by Rupaul Im sleepy af so im sayiing nonsense Reply Hey! I was wondering why do you guys like to make music videos? A career or something? No offense I really like Bastille and it puts a smile on my face when I listen to it.. Just wondering. Reply their most underrated song Reply I swear the words "I have written you down, you will live forever" are from a Shakespeare sonnet. Reply 1,000,001 Views!!!! Reply BAD BLOOD NEVER DIES Reply A friend recommended this song to me, saying it reminded her of Enjolras and Grantaire's relationship from Les Míserables. I have to say, I completely agree! I totally can see R painting Enjolras in this Shakespearean fashion, trying to "Keep him forever". I absolutely adore this! Reply If Shakespeare had not been alive, Bastille wouldn't be inspired to make this song Reply My name is Phillip.I am a poetAnd I wrote this poem just to show it. *cries silently into the night because PHILLIP * Reply for everyone that says he is an amazing song writer, it is true, but not for this song, he used william shakespears sonnet 18, and yes william shakespear was first, for the blondes Reply I want Bastille to be more popular, but I like it as my little secret. Reply my character named poet shall live forever :)) Reply Me maniacally writing and fleshing out characters, "I have written you down, now you will live forever!" Reply is he whistling pompaii? Reply i just thought about how funny id be if i made a deathnote amv with this music in the background xDD "i have written you down," you see light in his extreme euphoric writting of names "now you will live forever" and see them have a heart attack xD Reply I like this song, I like the story it tells, but it's not my favourite. Reply This is a strange song… Reply This guy made a fortune using only 4 chords. Reply I am nagging the replay button. this is so friggin meaningful to me. I have never heard such a beautiful song. but it hurts.. so much. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
