Raleigh Ritchie – Time In A Tree Lyrics

Time In A Tree by Raleigh Ritchie
Released : 2018

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
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
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

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
F*ck all that, I just wanna be happy
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
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

I’ve seen things that I never should never see
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
