A Song About Moving On

 

“Giants – by Dermot Kennedy

Dermot Kennedy is an Irish singer, songwriter, and musician. He has performed at many music festivals throughout the years and had an international music tour in 2019. He is known for his hit songs, “Outnumbered” and “Giants” and was nominated in 2020 for best male music artist at the BRIT Awards.  His most recent single “Giants” references the global events of 2020. The song is about letting go of the past, despite how painful the memories may be, and moving with the future no matter how uncertain it is. It is a message that many of us today can resonate with. Whether it be a pandemic that the globe is trying to overcome or smaller personal battles it is always a good lesson to leave the past behind us and move on.

“…If you say you will, I’ll leave it all behind”

 

Lyrics

We used to be giants
When did we stop?
Just say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
The hope and the hurt
Has lived inside of me
But there’s gold in the dirt
I never took the time to see
But I knew of it’s worth
When you walked beside of me
And my hand fit in yours
Like a bird would find the breeze
We used to be giants
When did we stop?
Say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
We were the song in the silence
But time catches up
Just say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
I knew from the start
You’d be the one to set me free
That day in the park
When the hurt would hide from me
Those eyes used to know me, it’s been way too long
You are the moon and the stars, and all they gaze upon
Time won’t ever move slowly, what you waitin’ on?
Yeah, what you waitin’ on?
We used to be giants
When did we stop?
Say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
We were the song in the silence
But time catches up
Just say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
Darlin’, just say you will
Will you remember those times?
That I have held until tonight
If you say you will, I’ll leave it all behind
Don’t you remember those times?
We used to be giants
So when did we stop?
Just say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
We were the song in the silence
But time catches up
Just say the word, and I’ll be yours
You know I never forgot
We used to be giants
Giants
Oh, I still love you though
I still love you though
