  1. My life was pretty similar to demi's , the struggles, family etc… That's why I love her songs , she puts so much soul and emotions on her singing nd the lyrics are like the words that I couldn't express my self. Thank you for your hard work Demi 😊

  2. reminds me of my grandfather :/ he’s not dead , but he could have done better in the past . He left my dad and aunts for some other woman in DR , came running back and they sadly took him in 🤷🏽‍♀️🥺

  3. Absolutely hit me in my heart. Cried immediately. Sadly so true for me that the dad i had in my life when I was young and just starting having the ability to have a memories and notice things happening…. was the one who would leave my family torn apart and cause me so much depression when I comes to men, relationships and trust. I have serious daddy issues. I cry anytime I see someone else getting to have the strong male father figure in their life love them as they should. Because I never got to have that. It’s a void in my heart that I can never seem to mend.

  4. As soon as she hit those last powerful notes perfectly in time with the piano @3:20 the tears started flowing and just wouldn’t stop 😭😭😭

  5. This song makes me tears endlessly pour out for a man, who’s face I can’t remember and doesn’t deserve my tears

  6. 3:21 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍⚘⚘⚘⚘⚘🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌹🌹🌺🌹🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌺🌹🌺🌹🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌹🌺🌺🌹🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺🌹🌺

  7. I really dont understand that some people cover this?……

    This is something personel to demi lovato

    Can somebody give me some reasons?

  8. I… have never had a song speak to me the way this one does. I dont typically listen to Demi (although she is absolutely amazing at what she does). I still have my father in my life, but I havent lived with him in over 5 years due to some issues in the family. I have such mixed feelings with him and this song sorted them all out more. This song is amazing, so emotional ❤

  9. 3:20 makes me cry every time without fail. So much power in her voice and this song. My absolute favorite from hers.

  10. I Really love and connect to this song and for the love of a daughter thank you for those songs I really needed them ,I love you Demi ♥️

  11. Hi Ms. Demi lovato im your fan and i really love your songs i listened to your song since i was 3 years old and i remember tje first song i heard on you is this is me from the disney movie camp rock hoping that you'll heart this message and i hope i can meet you on personal thank you

  12. Every line in this beautiful song hits different but „Even if you started this, this whole war in me." that hurted so much. She is so unbelievably strong, I can‘t even express it with words

  13. I don't mean any hate or anything I love Demi so much but can someone tell me what's happened with her and her dad because I don't understand what happened thanks.

    Love you Demi ❤️

  14. I'm a big fan. ❤ Such an amazing singer. I love you Demi! You inspired me a lot. I'm planning to cover this song. 😊

  15. wow i slept this beautiful voice, and wow what a song, hope Demi has her battles won and is doing better these days, this is raw emotional pain being sung right here ,

  16. Whenever I listen to this song, I can't hold my tears. Suddenly, my tears are running down my cheeks😢🥺 I wish Demi's father had never left her alone like this, I wish … 😔❤️ Life’s too short to stay alone…

  17. 4:20 Listen to her voice when she says “Thanks…” There’re many hidden words in this word. Longing, sadness,pain… 😢😢❤️❤️

  19. Im 2013 a day after this was uploaded it’s my moms birthday…and she passed away 2 days after…it was a really really hard day and feeling to have at the age of 9 I do really wish to see her because I feel like that I need someone to give me a hug because 99% of the time I don’t get it because I can’t open my mouth about how I’m feeling…

  20. Felt that in my soul! And truly ugly cried for a whole hour afterwards. Thank you for sharing this with us. I know for me it home. I am sorry you went through heartbreak with your birth father, but girl your heavenly father has got you babe! I love you Demi

  21. I sang this at my dad's funeral almost a month ago. I'm really grateful for those who choose to share their personal stories through their art 'cause they really don't know how it'll touch someone.

  22. "Father" will forever be one of my favorite songs. I cannot relate to the lyrics but I love how Demi sings with so much passion, pain and love. I can feel the pain in her voice; it gets me everytime
