If you decide to watch this you may want to go and give your father the biggest hug and tell him you love him.

I have always been envious with those who've had good relationship with their dads, I haven't spoken to mine in 25 years, he was never a father to us

martinlufc5637 yes it is very sad, in my own family there is a daughter and father who have not spoken for nearly 10 years. A teenage row and she won't give in even though he has tried and now she has a child he cannot see. I try to stay neutral but it's hard.

Lynibis he's never bothered with my children, no cards on their birthdays ect.. it's awkward when they ask who their other grandad is and why he's never been to see them

martinlufc5637 yep, I am dreading when the baby starts questioning. I think some folk aren't cut out to be parents, sounds like yours was one of them. But I bet it has made you into a great dad as you want yours to have what you didn't have.

martinlufc5637 you do what you think is best for your family! Having a sh*t relationship isn’t healthy

Right now I can’t even stand it the f*cking sh*t that’s said to me

Sorry for swearing 🤬 can’t help it

Original Music Video:

Certainly a superb song that's quite deep and powerful, but no, didn't cry or tear up

If I end up listening to a James Blunt tune on a radio station it's generally the one he's surrounded by ice/snow. Kinda sucks since he has other good songs, too.

PhilipMarc first time I had heard this one and the story behind it. I do know him and his other music though.

Lynibis A lot of people sadly only know him for that one song that made him excessively popular, a disservice to Mr. Blunt they're doing.

This is currently flooding YouTube and there are so many reactors doing this song and many end up crying. If you look closely James himself sheds a tear and his facial expressions said it all. I blubbed like a baby.

James Blunt is one of the most talented singer/songwriters I've ever heard. I'm a massive fan of James, not my dad, he was a complete ar*e hole.

stevea808 I guess this song can affect people two ways, for what they had but also what they didn't have.

This song made me feel 'hurt', 'emotional pain' and 'sympathy'. But I did not cry, not on the outside anyway. My father passed away Christmas 2022 from asbestos in his lungs and cancer. It was only after his death I found out the man I had loved and put on a pedalstal despite that he put me in care only ever saw me as a responsibility. It is what it is.

EmmaWright762 It never ceases to amaze me that human beings can become parents without any idea of how to raise their young. No exam, no lessons, often no help but they go ahead reproducing, often many times over and raise unloved, unwanted children. My own parents were not the best, no emotional or physical love shown, but I was not neglected or abused. I think people who have never known fatherly love will find it hard to identify with this video.

Lynibis My father and I did connect on a few occassions when I was young. He showed me some mice that he found curled up asleep in their nest which he had come across. He made a great drinking and gambling partner in my early teens. But mostly he never knew how to be a father, only a mate, not a true friend.
