I am surprised and thrilled at how much I love this track, since I am far in age and inclination from being part of Ed Sheeran's target audience. I sat mesmerised in an empty cinema at the end of 'The Hobbit' listening to it (why oh why will people spend 30 minutes watching adverts before a film but not spend much fewer paying tribute to all those who made it happen at the end?) and, like a previous reviewer, I want to keep it on permanent loop at the moment. The violin/cello part is just great, the words are moving and appropriately inspired by, rather than being slavishly part of the action. The boy done good!

What can I say about this song, it is hauntingly clear, Ed's voice is so pure. You see the film again in your mind when you listen to the song. I have it on repeat, its a wonder my laptop has'nt overheated!!
