Film & Music

Though it boasts a mesmerising performance, stunning special effects and ambitious pretensions, the film Gravity is consistently undercut by a vulgar sentimentality, writes Tony Mckenna.

Tuesday Evening Melody: “I Have Never Loved Someone” by My Brightest Diamond

by Pádraig Ó Tuama, guest contributor

As a kind, five-minute gift to yourself, listen to and watch the song by My Brightest Diamond. It has beautiful lyrics and is performed deliciously from a set recorded in Berlin this year.

I have never loved someone the way I love you 
I have never seen a smile like yours 
And if you grow to be a 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
