  6. Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron bring me here. They also had a beautiful performance thanks to this song. Connecting of 3 talented persons. When three talented people come together, something gorgeous is created. <3

  7. Honestly the best part – "when I come face to face with death, I'll grab his throat and ask him how does it hurt"

    My dance teacher used this song for one of her dances and it was stunning🔥

  10. This is the sound of autumn, cozy blankets, forest walks surrounded by the beauty of nature, the vibrant orange colors of the falling leaves, and the crunchy sound when you walk through piles of them on the ground, cozy nights in with the sound of rain on the windows, the smell of freshly baked bread, the feeling of a dog lying beside you, candlelights and a movie with your loved ones, and lastly,it's the sound of home ❤🍁

  11. My God how you blessed this man with his words/lyrics…musicality & melody… His delivery of his songs… The beauty in his videos… Just wow & awe…. Keep up the amazingly wonderful work.

    EVERTHING ABOUT THIS IS GDDAMN BEAUTIFUL IT HURTS

  19. Some don't hear what the other never wants the other to know that they are valid and feeling the way they truly do! I'm tired of being lied to now I have a plan to break free of this chain and I will when all is in order to do so. Wrong ppl never see that they are holding others back always blaming others for their old actions that hold them back as an adult. They may have the age but not qualified to have more because of un left business from their past. You can reflect their past and try to lead them but you can't make them grow if their unwilling to see the truth that they are the ones at fault and they should do everything to make it right so they can better themselves. If they say their going to kill themselves then that's on them not you! If your reading this you may see you were once blind but now you see them for what they've only shown you! I'm woke! Talk is cheap action is all I've been told yet never given. Well waiting is over with. If this was right I wouldn't always be questioning it. I want more in life. He could care less. He says I'm his soulmate I say bullshit. If I were I wouldn't feel like nothing ever works. If this was right then I would think so many things would fall in place like it belongs. I know it's hard giving up but if you've put in years and tried everything then you've left no stone uncovered. Growth is beautiful staying stagnant and dreams being killed isn't being true to yourself! Be happy. I'm done wasting time. You only get one life why should you be stifled!!!

  20. This man's voice makes my soul ache for so many lost to me and memories both good and bad of an Ireland back then and now. His voice is an anguished cry of our history….

  21. Next level song writing ..blows my mind every time I listen to it 🤯 “I’ve got some people who’ll carry me”

  22. Man, i don't how to discribe… You know, there are so many voices outthere, superstars, we hear every day. And then boom, i hear your voice in the radio a few months ago for first time and i thought, oh my god who is this guy? That was power over me. I am from austria. And 2 weeks ago i heard outnumbered. I don't find the right words to explain what i felt in this moment. So today, i woke up and i listened to all of your videos, live sessions and you just blew me away. And then there was "for island fires and family, dude i had teardrops in my eyes and i can't remember, if that had ever happened before!!! There are singers, they touch you in one or two moments of the song, but you, man, oh my god, every single word you sing touches the heart so hard, i never had this emotional feelings since freddie mercury. Your voice is so full of pain and feeling and it's so real. My english is not so good, but i had to tell you. You are amazing, i can't wait to see you in austria and i am so thankfull, that you share your voice with the world! Music is everything for me, thank you so much to give us these feelings. You go straight to the top, and up there you will stay there and take place as a forever living legend, right beside freddie! Thank you so much!!!!

  23. I think it's funny Dermot covered ed.
    Glory had some spins but his new stuff is on pretty regularly.
    Think in a year or two Ed will be covering Dermot.

  24. Hallo Dermot hore mir gerade dein Album an.Deine Stimme gefällt mir so gut,sie spiegelt deine Heimat wieder.Man sagt Irland sei rau und Mythisch einfach wunderschön wie deine Stimme uns Texte.I Love you vielen dank für deine Songs♥♥♥♥♥♥

  25. I can't explain how much this song has moved me, I feel different from listening to it and it is consuming me – I feel my soul – you dermot are a genius – Thank you x

  26. You are singing sentences like a song bird. Full thought like an angel. Good work man. Keep doing this. Don’t stop. Don’t slow.

  27. Been living in Ireland 12 years now,, even thought from time to time when ppl tell me to go where i came from. I do feel this song and connect with it. If that makes sense. A truly talented person. Thank you for making strangers like me feel a bit at home. 🙂
