#Lyrics 1-800 Logic

 

I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
I don’t wanna be alive
I don’t wanna be alive
I just wanna die today
I just wanna die
I don’t wanna be alive
I don’t wanna be alive
I just wanna die
And let me tell you why
All this other shit I’m talkin’ ’bout they think they know it
I’ve been praying for somebody to save me, no one’s heroic
And my life don’t even matter
I know it, I know it, I know I’m hurting deep down but can’t show it
I never had a place to call my own
I never had a home
Ain’t nobody callin’ my phone
Where you been? Where you at? What’s on your mind?
They say every life precious but nobody care about mine
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don’t gotta die today
You don’t gotta die
I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don’t gotta die
Now lemme tell you why
It’s the very first breath
When your head’s been drowning underwater
And it’s the lightness in the air
When you’re there
Chest to chest with a lover
It’s holding on, though the road’s long
And seeing light in the darkest things
And when you stare at your reflection
Finally knowing who it is
I know that you’ll thank God you did
I know where you been, where you are, where you goin’
I know you’re the reason I believe in life
What’s the day without a little night?
I’m just tryna shed a little light
It can be hard
It can be so hard
But you gotta live right now
You got everything to give right now
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive
I don’t wanna die today (hey)
I don’t wanna die
I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive (oh)
I don’t wanna die (no, I don’t wanna die)
I don’t wanna die
(I just wanna live)
(I just wanna live)
Pain don’t hurt the same, I know
The lane I travel feels alone
But I’m moving ’til my legs give out
And I see my tears melt in the snow
But I don’t wanna cry
I don’t wanna cry anymore
I wanna feel alive
I don’t even wanna die anymore
Oh I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I don’t even wanna die anymore
If you haven’t watched the video, I suggest hitting the play button on top. It is extremely powerful. I was not prepared for this video or the tears that followed. It is that powerful.
The song was written because Logic did a fan tour. He sat down and ate meals with fans and they told him how his prior music had saved their lives. He said that he wasn’t even trying to save lives. But what could happen if he really did? His whole album Everybody is a powerful message in itself. It is more than just this song.
I came about this songs at a music awards after the tragic passing of Chester Bennington. Right after Jared Leto provided his tribute, Logic performed this song. What was so beautiful about the performance is he had people on stage. Now I think any other artist would have used actors. But not Logic. He used actual people who called the Suicide hotline. He used survivors. He used Champions. He used Warriors. There is a tattoo that many people get who have fought their mental illness its a semi colon. What this signifies is that their stories are not done yet. It just paused for a moment. and they are continuing on.
If you have had suicidal thoughts. Help is out there. Please don’t be afraid to call the hotline the number is 1-800-273-8255. Asking for help does not make you weak. Asking for help makes you stronger than you know. You are showing your strength by understanding that you cannot do this alone. You are showing strength by reaching out. The people at this hotline will not judge you, and neither will I. I will never judge you. I will always be a listening ear. I know that you are in pain. I will never make you feel worthless. I will never make you feel like your pain is your fault. I do believe you can comment anonymous, but even if you can’t. I still will never judge you. You are a warr;or you are a champ;on you are a surv;or.
Merry Christmas Eve everyone
