My Brightest Diamond - I Have Never Loved Someone Lyrics




I have never loved someone the way I love you
I have never seen a smile like yours
And if you grow up to be king or clown or pauper
I will say you are my favorite one in town

I have never held a hand so soft and sacred
When I hear your laugh I know heaven’s key
And when I grow to be a poppy in the graveyard
I will send you all my love upon the breeze

And if the breeze won’t blow your way, I will be the sun
And if the sun won’t shine your way, I will be the rain
And if the rain won’t wash away all your aches and pains
I will find some other way to tell you you’re okay.

You’re okay...

My Brightest Diamond I Have Never Loved Someone Comments
  1. Allisson Diego

    Now that I have a kid, is impossible for me to sing this song without crying

  2. ba55letmysoulfly

    I found this song from “The Happiest Place On The Internet.” Still love the song!

  3. Victoria Provost

    I have to open some texts from an ex that will probably make me cry, so I'm putting on Rainy Mood and this song in the background in the hopes that it will soften everything enough to let me read them.

  4. Jenna Rae

    What is the amp she’s using?

  5. meixizou86

    To those who are watching this, I hope you'll have a good day.

  6. Dustin

    it's 2019 and I found myself desperately searching for this version late at night. It always makes me feel something deep.

  7. xcrestfxllen h

    i know this video is nearing it’s 8th birthday, but i still watch it every time i get upset about anything and i just cry it out to this song. this song has made me feel so much better about myself in so many situations. i do not know what i would do without shara nova. she means so much to me

  8. H B

    That was the most beautiful thing I've ever heard.

  9. Paula Gil

    Beautiful...i have a new song to sing to my daughters

  10. Ángel CG

    Como me recuerda a mi madre que ahora está en el cielo 😶😢😭

    My Brightest Diamond - I Haved Never Loved Someone (Traducción al español)

    Nunca he amado a alguien del modo en que te amo a ti.
    Nunca he visto una sonrisa como la tuya
    Y si creces para ser rey, payaso o indigente
    Yo diré que eres mi favorito en toda la ciudad.
    Nunca he sostenido una mano tan suave y sagrada.
    Cuando te escucho reír conozco la llave al cielo.
    Y cuando crezca para ser una amapola en el cementerio
    Te enviaré todo mi amor en una brisa
    Y si la brisa no sopla en tu camino, yo seré el sol
    Y si el sol no brilla en tu camino, yo seré la lluvia
    Y si la lluvia no lava y se lleva todos tus dolores
    Yo encontraré alguna forma de decirte que estás bien.
    Estás bien, estás bien, estás bien, estás bien... Estás bien.

    Music.. emotion.. amazing way to express love.

  15. Viernes de Libros con Gaby

    I have never loved someone the way I love you
    I have never seen a smile like yours
    And if you grow up to be king or clown, or pauper
    I will say you are my favorite one in town
    I have never held a hand so soft and sacred
    When I hear you laugh, I know heaven's key
    And when I grow to be a poppy in the graveyard
    I will send you all my love upon the breeze
    And if the breeze won't blow your way I will be the sun
    And if the sun won't shine your way I will be the rain
    And if the rain won't wash away all your aches and pains
    I will find some other way to tell you you're okay
    You're okay, you're okay, you're okay
    You're okay, you're okay, you're okay

    On 3/23/19 I gave birth to my daughter. On 3/25 she was taken by ambulance to a children’s hospital 2 hours away for seizure activity.
    They did a spinal tap, blood work, x rays, EEG, EKG, MRI... she had over 5 strokes, too many brain bleeds to count, over 10 seizures, a bacteria infection in her blood and a broken collarbone. We left the hospital with a diagnosis called HIE which means lack of oxygen to the brain and restricted blood flow.
    She stayed in the NICU over two weeks. The doctors don’t know what kind of development delays she will have. They tell me to sing to her, as it stimulates her brain development. I have sang this song to her every day for a month. I just sang her to sleep, singing this. Tears well in my eyes every single time. My brother showed me this song over 3 years ago and I never knew the emotional impact it would have until I stared into my babies eyes.
    If you pray, please pray for my baby. If you don’t - send good vibes / thoughts for her development. I beg you.
    Her name is Evalene Willow Ann Cox. She’s my brightest diamond.

  17. Jennifer Echegoyen

    Do you have a dream? Yes? Good, never give up on it. Those who love you want to see you achieve those dreams.

  18. Jess Jopia

    To my future kids. You're going to be okay like how I am today.

  19. Kerry Gray

    I saw MBD last night in San Antonio. I had never heard anything of theirs before yesterday. I openly cried during this song. It wrecked me. Now I'm a fan.

  20. coolcoker34ytchannnel alyssa

    I love u sister

  21. coolcoker34ytchannnel alyssa

    When u but this song it makes my older sister cry😅😢

  22. Renew Clérigo

    Eu nunca amei alguém do jeito que eu te amo
    Eu nunca vi um sorriso como o seu
    E se você crescer e se tornar rei, ou palhaço, ou mendigo
    Eu direi que você é o meu favorito na cidade
    Eu nunca segurei uma mão tão suave e sagrada
    Quando eu vejo você rir, eu conheço a chave do céu
    E quando eu crescer para ser uma papoula no cemitério
    Eu lhe enviarei todo o meu amor com a brisa
    E se a brisa não soprar em seu caminho, eu serei o sol
    E se o sol não brilhar em seu caminho, eu serei a chuva
    E se a chuva não lavar todas as suas dores e sofrimentos
    Eu encontrarei alguma outra maneira de lhe dizer que você está bem
    Você está bem

    My son passed away April 1, 2013. He was 23 but had an old soul. He had been hospitalized for quite some time after becoming paraplegic. He became sick with an infection and they were going to remove his leg but they found it too late and he would not survive the surgery, the infection had eaten away at the bone in his hip. He sent this song to me in a message before he died. I listen to it and i cry but it also blows me away..

  24. Akriti

    One of those moments that make you realize whatever you decide to say to appreciate this would never be enough 💛

  25. Camille B

    I watched her perform this live yesterday night and I cried so hard. It was so, so, so beautiful

  26. Ohmacide

    So beautiful, made my afternoon finding you, best wishes and happy holidays!

  27. Yan Valadares

    I was trying to find this for awhile. Just realised how emotional that song makes me. And that's quite rare.
    Someone once very dear to me sang this song to me. That's probably the reason why...

  28. luiz2706

    Tenha um ótimo dia ❤❤❤

  29. xcrestfxllen h

    this made me cry bye

  30. JeredtheShy

    Not kidding about your mom. Tell her you love her today

  31. J L

    I found this when i was in a really dark place in high school. I used to listen to her voice and pretend someone was singing to me just to comfort me, i felt so alone and lost as a teenager. I got through it eventually. But now I’m 24, and I’m just as lost as I was at 17. I needed to find this again tonight, to remind me that everything will work out, and that, i too, will be okay.

  32. TomForNow

    I just don't know that i'm going to be okay any more... and I don't think I want to keep trying.

    Alex Touzet

    i promise that you will be okay.

  33. Seth Hughes

    This is the prettiest song I've ever heard.

  34. Sara Hamel

    Woohoo you got me

  35. Queen Cee

    I was singing songs with my boyfriend in the car and he played this for me...it will always make me feel loved when hes not around. Everyone deserves good. If not from others then at least yourself ❤️

  36. Shifty Gaming

    I love this song with all my heart, but I've used it too much. I listened to it at 2AM while thinking about myself and my place in the universe too much. I've listened to it during the bad times to bring me hope too much. I've sung it to too many girls I thought I would spend the rest of my life with.
    I associate it with too many dark times in my life, albeit I'm still grateful to have heard it at those troubling times because it always brought my heartbeat down, it calmed my anxieties, and it spread the love I wanted to share, and it brought smiles to the faces of those I showed it too.
    But now, when I listen, I can only remember the hard times in my life when I used this song as a crutch to convince myself that I was okay too, like she sang. Maybe one day I will see it in a different light, and if so, I hope it comes soon <3

  37. Xalldin91

    thenicestplaceontheinter.net is down :(

  38. Eynain Films

    Why you gotta make me cry like that

  39. Tyus Southern

    lately I've been feeling afraid that every single connection I have in this word is evaporating around me. at the very least, I am lucky enough to have the love of my family. I don't know what I would do without them. this song breaks my heart but also makes me feel something like hope and relief that unconditional love really does exist.

  40. Madison Nguyen

    i find it truly amazing that just listening to certain songs can make me cry and this one definitely took no time to get me goin

  41. Anish Ghimire

    Alone in front of computer screen, tears falling on keyboard

  42. Jamie Beliveau

    does anyone know what happened to the nicest place on the internet? did it get taken down? I can't find it anymore and it breaks my heart

  43. D a n n

    you are a wonderful person
    thank you for being you

  44. Holly Chisholm

    This song makes me cry every god damn time.

  45. Thái Nguyễn

    i lost my grandmother yesterday

  46. vascodsferreira

  47. James Liu

    I'm forever grateful for the day I heard this song on the nicest place net. Watching this video just makes it even perfecter. How could this be.

  48. Soffl Kartoffl

    does anybody know if and where i could get the sheet music?
    thanks and much love. <3

  49. Azzi

  50. Stefano Flores

    You...







    Have a nice day!

  51. Andu Ninicu

    In the last 2 weeks of insomnia, this song is keeping me sane

  52. _Miriam_42

    This is is literally one of the most beautiful and heartwarming songs, it brings me too tears every time, it's something every mother should song to her child.

  53. Albert Draper

    Stupid people in the background talking while she's playing.  I hope it's staged that way, otherwise that is super rude and ignorant!

  54. Zeitgeist TTD

    The love a mother has for her child is beyond imagination, and nothing can ever come any close in comparison. She sung it beautifully bc of it.

  55. justanaudball

    700th comment!

  56. Karren Muolo

    It's almost 2am and all I can do is keep replaying this and breakdown in tears each time.

  57. Sharad Bansode

    Like a warm hug from the inside.

  63. Blake Lopez

    I cry every single time I listen to this,
    I miss you dad.

  64. Ryan Matthews

    how the fuck does she sing this without tears

  65. zxc

    I didn't have an unconditionally loving mother or family when I was growing up. It left me with self doubt, low self esteem, toxic shame, overwhelming fear, severe anxiety and depression that I can't move on with my life, I am always upset. Most people would think of their mother when they listen to this song, I don't. I sing this song to myself, the words that I have never heard from my mother, the promises that are never given or kept. This is my self-parenting song. For those of you out there who doesn't have a loving mother, father or family; You're okay. You can make it even if you've never received a good treatment from others, instead have gotten abuse and neglect. You can give the care and nurturing to yourself. Do not give up on yourself, you matter. To be honest, I don't know what's the point of living either but I know when you feel good, everything gets better. You can feel good more often. You can heal yourself <3 Yes, you can. Help yourself.

    Deathstylus

    Don't let the lack of something like that in your life define you. You are far more amazing than you know.

    brettdennenlife

    You are a lovely person. Thank you for your wisdom!

    Gaby Ertl

    I feel this so much. My mom convinced me that everything that had the potential of being good for me (medicine, meditation, psychological counseling), was actually bad. Medication is for weak people who don't trust in God, meditation is from the devil, why do you need a counselor if you can talk to a priest for free? She just wanted me to be strong enough on my own. But I just wasn't. She thought prayer could fix everything. She had people with "healing powers" pray over me while speaking in tongues, and then bullied me when it didn't take my anxiety away. She made me try completely bogus cures for anxiety, including drinking chlorine. She called other girls (my friends at school) "the daughter I wish I had", right in front of me. She made me feel really abnormal. I still feel fucked up to this day. There's always a little voice in the back of my mind saying I'm doing the wrong thing every time I try to do something to help myself.

    Gaby Ertl

    I feel like I should mention, this isn't a cry for help. About 3 months ago my parents cut me out of their lives for being gay. Everything has been a lot better since then. I have a wonderful partner who supports me wholeheartedly in everything I do. I am finally learning to open myself up to the idea that someone can love me unconditionally. I am still broken in many ways, but surrounding myself with positive people who uplift me and removing all the negative influences from my life has completely turned my life upside down in the best way.

    Wilson Allender

    It’s okay though because we all love you

  66. Marc Brooks

    I just wish I could ever say something so beautiful

  67. TheJonny

    Too much feels....

  68. Jim Nelson

    A dear friend asked me what I'd choose for the soundtrack of my dying Mother's final days. I fell deep into the depressing, if valid, and expected sad songs but ended here. "You're ok" is a gift and the forgiveness she so often gave me, the deepest love possible. This is the way I choose to remember my Mother.

  69. lumbeeman01

    We just buried my mom yesterday, this is the toughest thing I have ever had to go through. At 45 I was still her baby boy. I miss her .

  70. you want a pizza me?

    I can't choose between two possible lives it hurts so much I can't choose one direction will lead me this way the other will lead me the other way... God somebody someone help me... :(

    ruby5443

    Just try and remember the good times... follow your heart and cannot go wrong

    ruby5443

    You cannot*

    I am a metal head, and suddenly I heard this song........................... I need to punch some wall to feel manly again.

  73. Ghost Of Your Childhood

    I sometimes sing this to my daughter. <3 <3

  76. J A D E

    tw Aw, I'm sorry you didn't have that motherly figure in your life. I can't imagine where I'd be without my mother. But the awesome thing about humans is that we're adaptable. No matter what situation we're in, whether we mean to or not, we always find a way to adapt to our situation. It takes time and dedication, but whatever life throws at you, life *does* get better. I send a thousand hugs your way, and to whomever else may be reading this. :D

    hannah fluff

    tw wow thanks for that- your comment made me tear up

    KatRocksLOL

    tw thank you so much for writing this, you have no idea how much i relate

  78. Jason Alt

    <3 Beautiful sounds of frequencies.

  79. Stephen Booth

    I have been listening to "Distant Sky" by Nick Cave and for entirely different reasons it brought this beautiful song to mind. The contrast in the poignancy of both is heart breaking.

  80. Todd Fahrner

    you're ok

  81. Big Slim

    Absolutely Spectacular!!!!

  82. Feralscientist

    I found this from my beautiful girlfriend. I was having a hard time with my.life and she sent this to me! I love this song to death!

  83. ThoseWhoRemain

    the fact that she is crying at the end, is the sweetest thing ive ever seen

  84. JeredtheShy

    It's two years later. You still need to call your fucking mom.

    SpaRkofFiRe

    JeredtheShy You're really dedicated to making us call our moms.

  85. DaREEL SkigArg

    YouTube must be broken its only showing my views

  86. Nick James

    Mannnn...haven't been teary eyed like that in a long time. Shara I've followed your work since Sufjan Days. You've had some moments but for me nothing compares to the way these take away shows highlighted the grace and skill with which you sculpt still air into beauty using only your vocal chords. Of all the talented musicians and enjoyable times I've had browsing through La Blogetheque your performances are truly unique and personal. Merci!

  87. Lorendrawn

    I fell in love with this song when I found the nicest place on the internet. When I learned that the song was written for her son, this song gained the unique distinction of being the only thing that gives me feels.

    And it gives me too much feels.

    Olivia M

    That's where I found this song too!

    Dustin James

    Yup, same here! I didn't know for sure that is was for her child, but I felt it. I still tear up to this.
