****
Schöne Ballade, natürlich # 1 in GB im Herbst 1999.
****
Gut Ballade, aber knapp kein 5 !.... am Platz # 17 in NL mit weihnachten in 1999....

leider zu langweilig!
**
für mich klingt eigentlich jedes ihrer lieder gleich. und jedes ist mir zu schnulzig.
******
Die absolut schönste Ballade von Westlife!!! Schlägt sogar You raise me up, war dieser Song nie in der Schweizer Hitparade?
*****
Schön, aber fast zu schmalzig. War, glaub' ich, das Erste, was ich von Westlife gehört hatte.

Der 3. Song vom Album "Westlife" ist eine schöne Ballade. Gute Performance vom Quintett. Etwas für die ruhigen Momente im Leben.
******
Wie die Jungs selbst sagen, einer der besten Song, die sie je veröffentlichten und das finde ich auch!
******
De Video find ich au no so schön!
*
shit
*****
Eine ganz tolle Ballade !
*****
winter song...
*****
▓ In Nederland werd deze dubbele A-kant, vergezeld met hun andere "Hit": "I Have A Dream" !!! Gezamelijk stonden ze 10 weken lang in de Nederlandse Top 40 van 1999 & 2000 !!! (NL Top 40: 10 wk / # 19) !!! "I Have A Dream" = 3 sterren & "Flying Without Wings" = 5 sterren !!!
*****
Hört man gern, geht aber neben ihren anderen Songs etwas unter.
****
ist doch ziemlich schmalzig...
*****
Hart an der Grenze, aber der Text ist klasse.
*****
Eine schnörkellose Bombast-Ballade, wie sie später Alexander Klaws mit "Behind The Sun" in noch zugespitzterer Weise präsentierte, ist dieses hörenswerte Westlife-Werk. Dass die Liebe in der Lage sein mag, Naturgesetze - beispielsweise dasjenige der Unmöglichkeit flügelfreien Flugs - zu überwinden, wird klanggewaltig und mit eingängiger Melodik klargestellt. Mir gefällt's und ich zücke eine leicht abgerundete 5.
******
Excelente. La versión que más me gusta es la que interpretan con Christian Castro. Los agudos de Christian hacen celestial esta canción.
*****
Mooie ballade
******
This is a really good and original song by Westlife. The vocals are strong and the lyrics great. An early song so before the 10 years of covers that followed.
This proves they can have good original songs. Voted UK Record of the Year 1999. 3rd UK top 10. 15 weeks in the UK top 100. 92,000 sold while #1. Their third UK and Irish#1. UK#1 and Ireland#1. 400,000 copies sold in the UK.

Their sixth biggest selling single ever in the UK.

edit:After announcement they are splitting in 2012 this track has been voted by British public greatest Westlife song ever. I agree but i also have to say i really like 'If I Let You Go' also

auch wenn's zu ihren erträglicheren Titeln zählt, ein Gähner allererster Güte..
*****
Ich war bis gerade wirklich noch müde, aber dank dieser Kitschtheatralik bin ich dann doch wach. Oder ist es der starke Kaffee, der vor mir steht. Sehr hübsch!
****
ok song by westlife.
******
great song, their best by far
******
Great song, I really enjoy this one.

knallharte Bruchhandlung – eine ekelhafte, schleimige Schnulze – so etwas gibt bei mir durch die Bank den obligaten Nagel…
****
liked
***
gewoon een nette ballad zoals die behoort te klinken van een boyband
****
This was really solid from them.
*****
It may sound like their cliched sound listening to it today, but at the time it was a brilliant message with a great build up. Still stands as one of their best releases.
****
Zeemzoete ballad van de boysband Westlife. Eind 1999/begin 2000 stond het nummer zestien weken genoteerd in de Vlaamse Ultratop 50 (met een piek op plaats 7).
4+
***
Average, much prefer the cover on 'Come Fly With Me'.
