  • Relate much huhuhu….im a discreet gay and i dont know how to open up with my parents coz they hate homosexuals i dont know what im about to do.. I cant show off the real me

  • I really enjoy the song, but mostly because of the melody and Calum's beautiful voice..

    I think that just everyone in the Western world would love their children no matter what their sexuality was..?
    I'm bisexual, and I've never told my parents, cause I didn't think it necessary.. I wouldn't tell them if I was straight, and I know they love me no matter what 😀
    My mom definitely knows, but that's just because it randomly popped up in a conversation at some point..
    My parents are very old fashioned conservative people, and still I don't think it matters to them at all!

    I'm Scandinavian, so we may be a bit more liberal when it comes to stuff like that, but still..!

  • والله ما جاي افتهم كلامه بس ياخي في احساس بصوته من يغني تحسه شخص حزين 😔

  • One of my favorite songs. I listen to it every time I need to clear my mind and remind myself that it’s all gonna be ok. Being LGBTQ is hard enough

  • I posted in the comments of “you are the reason” about my Dad passing away a few days ago, I posted how he made that song his ring tone for when I called him, but this was my ring tone for when he called me. Thank you Calum for sharing yourself with so many of us!

  • Hey bro. I've been listening to this song fot many times. And it keep touched me. I feel the heart in this song. Keep it up! Greetings from Malaysia. "Mantul"

  • Hey, if you guys want to listen to this song, as often as you want, and wherever you are. Buy the MP3, and Calum's album. Support his music!

  • I just cried through this. Being the mum of an 18 year old, my heart just broke. I would also love my son, no matter what.

  • HEYYY! If you guys want to listen to this for one hour, please visit my profile! I just made it because I am like SUPER ADDICTED TO THIS MUSIC and I bet some of you are too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • My dad stopped talking to me, after i told him that I'm gay. That was about 6 years ago. In his eyes I'm not his son anymore.

    This song made me cry like a little baby.. <3

  • I have some friends that are LGBT and two of them told their parents and they just reacted the worst possible way and I felt awful for them… I m not LGBT but I respect and love the people who are just the same as every other person, and things like that, (the coming out and bad reaction things) really make me feel so bad for people… like… they are people too. They have feelings they have a heart and they are just like us. Maybe they are a little different but… they are still people and we all are different in our own ways so… don't treat them in a way you wouldn't want to be treated… People very very close to me are LGBT and I 'll always love them no matter what. The song is amazing bro❤️

  • I'm happily proud to say that i'm transgender and my family and friends loves no matter what 💜 also my mom always wanted a daughter so she defently has no problems with that when i told her she told me that 😀😊❤

  • I just hope that in a soon future people can go out as them self to the world without have to fear or deal with those fears that what if they won't love me as me and yes ik there is homophobia and transphobia but that is fading to the pass now let's build the present and future ❤💙💚💛💗💜

  • It definitely hits you hard when your in that same position and think no one cares 😪growing up I went through the same thing the video showed, now I’m fifteen and I’m in the closet hoping one day I’ll be brave enough to come out😪❤️

  • My 12 year old daughter told me 2 weeks ago that she thought she liked girls. My response “ ok cool. You know that you are apart of me. Beautifully and wonderfully made and I love you unconditionally. What do you want for dinner?” I’m proud of my kids. Always . Love them always.

  • Questo ragazzo mi fa venire i brividi… Ha una magia immensa negli occhi e un amore grande nel cuore… Tutto questo lo trasmette attraverso la sua voce e mi permette di sognare ad occhi aperti… Sei davvero uno spettacolo

  • What is the message? Don t get bullied ou you'll end up gay? Just kidding beautiful song and on and on…

  • Very well sung! I can't stop crying right now, this is a hard hitter, especially the bullying! Being bullied in school for being gay made me feel like an outcast all my friends except 1 turned their backs on me and let me be bullied instead of helping me, my mom told me the same thing "I love you no matter what" but my grandma couldn't accept me for who I am she tried changeing me. Last year she told me "you're my grandson and I love you, I'll never stop loving you" they are the only 2 in my life, my dad has been out of my life 24 years almost 25 in November, found out my mom got pregnant and left her.

    I thank you for writing this beautiful song and singing it, you have a lovely voice

  • Lyrics:
    When I was a young boy
    I was scared of growing up
    I didn’t understand it
    But I was terrified of love
    Felt like I had to choose
    But it was out of my control
    I needed to be saved
    I was going crazy on my own

    It took me years to tell my mother
    I expected the worst
    I gathered all the courage in the world

    She said I love you no matter what
    I just want you to be happy
    And always be who you are
    She wrapped her arms around me
    Said don’t try to be what you're not
    Cos I love you no matter what
    She loves me no matter what

    Got a little older
    Wishing all my time away
    Riding on the pavement
    Every sunny day was grey
    I trusted in my friends
    Then all my world came crushing down
    I wish I never said a thing
    Cos to them I'm a stranger now

    I ran home, I saw my mother
    It was written on my face
    Felt like I had a heart of glass about to break

    She said I love you no matter what
    I just want you to be happy
    And always be who you are
    She wrapped her arms around me
    Said don’t try to be what you're not
    Cos I love you no matter what
    Yeahhh

    Now I’m a man and I’m so much wiser
    I walk the Earth with my head held higher
    I got the love that I need
    But I was still missing one special piece
    My father looked at me

    He said I love you no matter what
    I just want you to be happy
    And always be who you are
    They wrapped their arms around me
    Said don’t try to be what you're not
    Cos we love you no matter what
    They love me no matter what

  • So It's 2019 in September…..and I've been a huge fan of Calum from the very beginning. I've watched his first audition at least 50xs it's that amazing, and I have this song on my playlist on Pandora… But I thought he just sang this song.. I didn't know it was about him. But I was watching an interview he did back in 2016 and he was talking about himself and how he was gay and I'm not going to lie, my heart broke lol I'm engaged to be married, but I'm all dreamy eyed over Calum (I'm quite certain I'm not the only one). His presence is just a gift, he's so beautiful at heart and of course super handsome 🙂 but I'm glad that this day and age that he's able to just be himself. Stay beautifully humble Calum and come perform please in Saint Augustine, Florida, so I can get to watch you perform and sway along to your music 🎶.

  • Honestly, I think my son who is 9 is either going to be gay or bi..
    There are signs and people point them out and it angers me that they are such jerk faces. So what my son loves watching Barbie movies and likes to wear girly rings, he's an awesome kid, let him be him. I have to tell people to either be quiet and keep their opinions to themselves or I will cut them literally out of our lives.
    Not you're idea of what a "boy should be".
    He's also a sensitive kid, he takes it to heart when people hurt his feelings 🙁 I want to fight his battles for him, but I know I can't always 🙁

  • One of the most amazing songs I've ever heard of! 😍 Literally can not stop listening to it 😍😍😍😍😍

  • I was thinking…who I would have on my list of favorite singers? Calum Scott would be right there near the top. I've been in this world a long time and I've seen a lot of singers and even lived in Nashville for a long time. We are fortunate to have YouTube and the opportunity to see and hear so many great artists. Elvis, Ricky Nelson – yep. Emanne, Amira, Sam Smith, Ella Henderson, Pink, Barbara Dickson and the list goes on and on. Endless it seems but each one has contributed so much to my life's enjoyment. Right here at the touch of a few keys. Thanks Calcum for this song and the others you have written and performed. Generational. I hope you'll be here for a long time to come. Thanks.

  • Having lost both my mom and dad this year in March and June to cancer, this song brings all kinds of tears and emotions. Love the ones who truely love you while they are still here, don't let the waves of life shift your attention from them. Thank you.

  • Quite touching but don't let that control you. Dont accept it u can live better it's all emotions it can be controlled

  • altough the world leaving you alone you still have a family who will give you warm hug….love your family before late

  • i’m sitting here actually crying through the whole song and now i’m just sitting here, feeling like a loved, wrecked, mess. all i have left to say is thank you Callum.

  • UWIELBIAM CIE CALUM ,SUPER SPIEWASZ!!! Rozweselasz wszystkie najsmutniejsze serca JESTES WIELKI I NIGDY NIEPRZESTAWAJ TWORZYĆ I ŚPIEWAĆ💝

  • More kids need to hear that from their parents.. good parents let their kids know they love them no matter what!❤💜
