Fr33lancers : Man when he hugged his younger self... that was pretty powerful...

Monig Rodriguez Aguirre : [Chorus] I just want time in a tree I need a place just for me Somewhere that I can be free Keep the faith and just be What you’ll be [Verse 1] I guess rules are there to break But I make mistakes like they were handed on a plate When I try to leave sometimes, I’m standing in the way I’m on the edge of crying all the time, cos I can’t human Right [Verse 2] What a state I get wound up, from the ground up And I don’t know why Turn the sound up, drown the noise out Swallow (Whoa), Don’t cry Got an anxious heart, and it’s stone made Can’t take paper or heartbreak Did Billy Joel have self esteem? Maybe Vienna wouldn’t wait for me [Chorus] I just want time in a tree I need a place just for me Somewhere that I can be free Keep the faith and just be What you’ll be [Verse 3] Do you ever feel like, you could live a real life? Like everybody else in the real world, you could be a real girl? You could be a wizard, or you could be in NASA, you could write fiction, you could tame raptors Most days I struggle and I get snappy Fuck all that, I just wanna be happy [Verse 4] Swimming against the current Am I wrong? Can you show me a warrant Honestly, I’m a bomb Abhorrent I’m on it, I get it, I’ve got it I wanna be 10 again, just me and sonic, and nobody telling me I should be more than I am Back when I had a plan [Chorus] I just want time in a tree I need a place just for me (for me) Somewhere that I can be free (I can be free) Keep the faith and just be (Just be) What you’ll be [Bridge] I’ve seen things that I never should have seen Said too many things I didn’t mean Hurt myself too many times to count I need to let it out, and just release Been lying to myself too long Been trying by myself too long I can’t relax, I’m too distracted I can’t hack it I’m needy, greedy Love me, feed me Let’s be a family It’ll take a village To make a man of me So why couldn’t you love me? It’s all I need [Chorus] I just want time in a tree I need a place just for me Somewhere that I can be free Keep the faith and just be What you’ll be

cheriwine : Can’t believe this singlehandedly cleared my skin, watered my crops and saved 2018

Luke O'Connell : Just started college and feel like I've put myself on the completely wrong path. I want to crawl back to childhood, but instead it feels like I've thrown it all out to do something I don't really enjoy. The way you deal with the aging and the expectations of adulthood through your music resonates so much man, and I can't begin to express how grateful I am to be aware of you and your art. Keep it up, and never stop making what you love.

Molotov Cocktail Piano : The "going up" lights at the end nearly brought me to tears.

Aly Sortwell : the "you could be a real girl" literally always brings a tear to me eye. as i'm sure a lot of us do, i suffer from depression and anxiety and its a challenge to just do "normal every day" things. applying for jobs, meeting people, even getting out of bed some days. your music hits the nail on the head every time and makes me feel not so alone. thank you for everything you do, Raleigh.

Marvin Reyes : If you notice, the elevator numbers on the right hand represent his age throughout the years, 1, 7, 14, 21, 28, then glitches out to infinity

Nicanor Mercado : I know people don't like it when others say they found an artist through somebody else, but I'm grateful to the Game Grumps for having him on the show and talking about his music because I never would've known. However, aside from that, this was a beautiful song with a powerful video to match. Got me emotional especially struggling with who I was, who I am, and who I want to be. This definitely got to me.

Marvin Reyes : The ending is really cool too. The kid version of himself hands him the astronaut helmet. It's like he's rediscovering his child like wonder, and learning to dream again.

Silver Squalo : Man your music its so underrated, you deserve much more views

Faraja M Montgomery : "Do you ever feel like, you could live a real life? Like everybody else in the real world, you could be a real girl?" --- when a song connects with your soul like this... words can not describe

Borne : as a guy who never had a relationship, no friends, not much social media, and not good at talking, this brought me to tears... thank you greyworm.

a. : "I’m needy, greedy Love me, feed me Let’s be a family It’ll take a village To make a man of me So why couldn’t you love me? It’s all I need" this..

Tartar Sauce : Thought I accidentally clicked on an IHE video in the beginning

SgtMajor Kululu : The song by itself could already make me cry. Video made it worse

John Azopardi : An absolutely phenomenal actor, but I've got to say I think his music is even better, one of the best songs I've heard this year, what a talented bloke. This song put a lump in my throat. Hats off to you mate!

Creambee : I love seeing music videos that are both creative and low budget, well done pulling off such a beautiful piece. We miss you on Game Grumps Jacob! you're so fun and work so well with those two.


Jeremy Newell : Love the new video bruh. Clever using the floors as ages and the versions of you passing through the elevator. Hugging the older you. Not wanting to let go of the younger you. Disgusted with the younger version of you being pulled apart. So much going on in this video. Vocals on point as always.


EDZ1LLA : Anyone else recognise the opening stock music?

Leo Laurus : This video is cathartic. This song is cathartic. Heck - Jacob is cathartic!

FarmerScarlett : Wow! Raleigh Ritchie aka Jacob! So proud. This is absolutely beautiful. Best Wishes from Ireland.

Tommy Vance : You brilliant beautiful man, Jacob.

Elio Melero : Is that Grey Worm ?! Good song

Ben Augustine : I remember the day I found out that the guy that was a funny guest on game grumps was a AMAZING ARTIST

rugburnjr : This is beautiful. You are a genius brother. This does my soul so much good. Thank you.

PowahSlap Entertainmint : A collab with StarBomb would be dope.

Aaron : Is the end bit a Toy Story reference? You would've been a child when the movie was released so the child bringing the space helmet makes sense. The helmet made me think of Buzz Lightyear. I know it's referring to the future but the infinity symbol made me think of "to infinity and beyond" which could definitely apply to the future in this context. And big ups to everything else in the video being linked to life and aging. Great video telling a great story

Mac Lucasta : Seriously, RR really gets to my soul because this is exactly what I'm feeling. Oppurtunities are being given to me and I am struggling to not be afraid and to lay the past to rest. Felt like I was watching myself.

KXLE : Who else nearly teared up at that hug?

TheAMaazing : This sound is so unique... it's making me feel nostalgic for him? That's honestly insane, I love it mate. Can't wait to hear more from you B)

Koweaboo ! : Those views are missing 3 0's

Ana Y : Amazing I love the use of the elevator to represent the concept of time and meeting your past self 💜

mogz h : man that ending... to infinity and beyond

Juliette Reacts : I love his music so much!

Ramil : The best video I've seen in this year so far. Big up from Russia!

shydlight : Sixth time watching this I realized teen him was going to try and hit the up button. he stopped young him from killing himself. holy f uc k that hits,, way too close to home.

Aria Dyer : This is so unfair. His music is so incredible and powerful and yet he literally has a fraction of the views other (less talented) musicians have. This is the sort of music that you only have to listen to once and just love.

The Panacea : Love this! So happy you still make amazing music!

Donosaur Dan : This song made me realize I truly wasn’t happy. Thank you for the wake up call... I needed it

Jeryll Lee : YouTube suggestions, you’ve done it again. 👏

Ben Augustine : Still waiting for him to get the mainstream blow up he DESERVES

intotheblue : god the bridge when he hugs his younger self made me tear up- i watched it two hours ago in school and had to hide my tears,,,, thank you for the video ❤

Johanna I : You know, I love music. It is a language of its own that pretty much anyone can connect to, even if they don't have words, we all understand it in our own way. Maybe the song is in another language, but even that is a way of sharing something you created with the world. It's simply beautiful how music connects people.

miguel beraun : I can’t wait for his new album to come out

not sure : if this aint it, then i dont want "it"

Freddie Quell : I’m needy, greedy, love me, feed me, Let’s be a family; it’ll take a village to make a man of me...

Federico Ariel Sánchez : So fucking beautiful.. This man knows how to put paint every single emotion in his music and his videos like no other..

Shams Ramzi : So beautiful ❤️
