Not Friday Song # 12: “1-800-273-8255” by Logic (You Matter)

I know it’s not Friday. But here’s a song on a Sunday by the artist Logic ft. Alessia Cara and Khalid. The name of the song is a phone number: “1-800-273-8255.” You can say it’s a prevention suicide song. I posted the lyrics and video below. I hope you like it.

It’s a beautiful song, and my wish is that it continues to reach out to people who think that it’s not worth living. It’s important to make awareness about this matter. You matter even if others think you don’t. Just know that you’re never alone. There are others who feel the same.

God Bless and remember, you matter.

Logic Lyrics

“1-800-273-8255”
(feat. Alessia Cara & Khalid) 

[Logic:]
I 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 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 mineI 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 whyAll 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 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 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

[Logic & Alessia Cara:]
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

[Alessia Cara:]
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 the 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

[Logic & Alessia Cara:]
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

[Logic:]
I 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 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

[Logic & Alessia Cara:]
I finally wanna be alive (Finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive
I don’t wanna die today
I don’t wanna die
Finally wanna be alive (Finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive
I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna die
(No, I don’t wanna die)
(I just wanna live)
(I just wanna live)

[Khalid:]
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

  1. I really like this song. The message in the lyrics just hits you right in the feels especially the “who can relate” line because even though a lot of us don’t admit it, plenty of people have genuinely felt this way and that’s really heartbreaking.

    1. It’s true. A lot of people have, and it is important to address it.
