CHRISTIAN, YOUR MUSLIM, YOUR GAY, YOUR STRAIGHT I AM HERE TO
FIGHT FOR YOUR EQUALITY BECAUSE I BELIEVE
THAT WE ARE ALL BORN EQUAL BUT WE ARE NOT TREATED EQUALLY
AND THAT IS WHY WE MUST FIGHT. WE MUST FIGHT FOR THE EQUALITY
OF EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD REGUARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION,
COLOR, CREED AND SEXUAL
ORIENTATION SO I SAY HERE AND NOW, IF YOU
BELIEVE IN THIS MESSAGE AND MY LESSONS OF PEACE, LOVE,
POSSITIVITY AND EQUALITY FOR ALL THEN I DEMAND THAT YOU RISE TO
YOUR FEET AND APPLAUD NOT ONLY FOR YOURSELVES, BUT THE FOUNDATION WE
ARE LAYING FOR OUR CHILDREN

  1. Not trying to be shady in any way, but anyone else totally forgot that this song existed?

    On another note, what a powerful song

  2. [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

    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 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

  3. Who tf put a dislike on this video are you stupid? What he does in this video is amazing no matter what you think,, their amazing

  4. Now that I have your attention…

    You are f**king beautiful.
    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  5. I was going through a lot at one point. I would cry everyday and feel an urge to just cut myself daily. I begged my parents for a therapist. They said "okay we'll get one". They never did. I took it upon myself to cure my mind, music being the method of doing so. This was one of the songs I listened to throughout my hard times. I'm now happy and out of my rough times. I want to thank you so much. You've saved so many lives that it's incredible.

  6. “ believe that we are all born equally” that hit me soo much. I am so thank you that i have a family that loves me no matter what. I listen to this whenever i feel like ending it all. But then i realize that i would be leave a life of opportunities. I am truly sorry for those who have lost their loved ones due to suicide our society needs to learn how to judge there selves before others. YOU ARE NOT ALONE ❤️😭💔💜💛🥺

  7. omg this song makes me just want too cry sometimes i feel sometimes like im not worth it and i cant talk too anyone on how i feel i wish ppl would just understand me.i feel like im ugly and its hard there have been times where i just want to die.

  8. We need way more people like him he is the one that wrote this song so many people need this song in this world because of how messed up people are so many people could have wrote this but no he was the one who did and he doesn’t care who you are he will always be there for you no matter if you are black,white,gay or anything else is just an amazing song that a lot of people need to listen to💔😢

  9. May 29 of 2018, my brother ended his life, he was my life. After that I wanted to give up living. It’s almost 2020 and I still wanna give up. I need help

  10. Escapism is form of substance or experience of escaping what seems like unbearable pain , even if that escape is a lie, even if that escape is addiction , even if that escape is death. Whats the solution ?

  11. This song and performance with amazing speech hit me.yet i'm in Asia.About mental support and care here is pretty delayed(almost nothing)there are only 9 therapists for cptsd people.i am living on the welfare due to trouma of brutal abuse by family members.i am not able to work.so hard to make new friends.whichever i can't afford to due to poverty.police are conncted to maffia where i live.i got tortured although i didn't do anything to my abusive ex.ex and cops framed me .they are always on the man's side.i was chatting with a woman from singapore.fortunely she only had aunt who cared her and let her escape to America.well i only have monster but nobody by my side.i used to be homeless for a while.in the near future,i have to go back to the streets.i just don't even know how to cope this pain,anger,sadness,emptiness,and FEAR.i am about to nerveous breakdown.there are lifeline here.but there are 4 or 3 stuff in a one city.not joke..so everybody is saying this is crap.even there are nice stuff,if goverment doesn't change.even if you are stronger,you can't change your circumstances.and we have lots of stricts rules which we have to follow.we always need permission to democracy.so this country is messed up.and i'm going to nuts!i barely talk to anyone because not i don't want to.people also have strong discrimination towards people on welfare.no JUSTICE here.and life is completely unfair.
    I can't do this anymore.no solution.37yr was wasted.

  12. Damn would a friend(17) of mine heard that… I maybe wouldnt need to go to his furneral this month… *Sighs*…
    Suizide is such a horrible thing.

    Pls if you have social problems.. get help!

    Sometimes its better to get help and be "weak"(but i dont find calling hotlines or talking about the problems is weak.. its rather strong and a good thing) instead of trying to be the "strong" one and solve things alone just to break without backup.

    Thx for reading and sorry for ma bad english…

  13. Nice sentiment…but since the big bang…. discrimination exists and will always exists, be it at a very low level or a dangerous level….we are all human and are open to discrimination even if we don't know it…so yes in a fairytale world this is lovely but nothing will ever change and they are just facts I'm afraid

  14. Your song conveys a strong message to all the human beings on the globe for their well being thus I felt that you are the great

  15. Good song, I'm not even gay but when I was younger I used to say something similar, wishing I was never born, but I remember it was because my mom said I wish you were never born when I was really young and all the abuse I received, I heard it all from I wish you were never born to you are possessed by a devil. The chokings, the beatings, getting treated like trash. It took me a long time to say I don't wanna die. The only thing that stopped me from attempting suicide was my true will, the one that rejected everything I was told. I never wanted to die I just didn't like the way I was living. Even though I am alone I believe in the spirit, it keeps me alive and hopeful. I also believe in determination regardless of the thoughts around you. People in general don't know how to talk. So I just think to my self what's the point of taking words seriously, it's actions that matter. So I said my word is my bond. My actions must follow through. Like many have said, your mind plays tricks on you. Doing what you want requires you to fight the mind. I think of myself as a warrior fighting the ego and the devil himself. Life is a journey but it can also be a war against doubt. Love is an eye opener but first you must learn to love yourself. Forget others, do you love you? Because only when you love yourself can you truly love others. Forgive yourself before you forgive others. God is real, he is the cosmos, the air, the soil. He is every one of us, and he is nothing at all. Accept nothingness as well as everything. There is no set path. If there was then we would have been extinct a long time ago.

  16. When i heard this song i felt like i want to cry…In Kenya life is difficult and you feel an urge to kill your self and this song changed me, i felt someone somewhere has gone through this and they found a way to pass all of this……If there was a way to call this number {1-800-273-8255} i would have done this years ago.
    I have felt that Logic, Khalid and Alessia Cara have lived this at some point. But i as a kid who is 13, i have had fights that make me feel to kill myself, I just want to say thank you for this. I like the motivational speech at the end, it made me wonder.. How life is short and painful..THANK YOU Logic, Khalid and Alessia Cara for the Performance….Keep it up

  17. I love the speech at the end because I’m Muslim and I kept being called out at school so I had to be home schooled and then I kept begging my mom to go back to a public high school and lucky for me I met a lot of nice people black and white.

  18. One of my close mates killed himself on 6th September 2017 because he thought he was fat, and people made fun of his body weight love this song listen to it everyday to get me through the day. RIP Kam love you bro

  19. The USA has put in a new number for the hotline and it will be active september 25th; 988. Easier access and a faster and better number to remember. God bless you all

  20. Every time I see this I start crying. Our world is so fucked up but Logic is such a good person and such a huge inspiration. I can't believe human like him still exists on this planet but see him on the stage gives me always new hope and strength. He is the light in dark days that shows it is still worth to fight. God bless him!!!

  21. I’m going through such a tough moment right now and I found out that one of my best friends committed suicide. He was the nicest kid ever. You couldn’t even tell that something was wrong. He came to first period and then left to sell his stuff in the city. He asked people for medicine. That night he overdosed. Why…🙏🏽🙏🏽❤️. I hope you’re pain free. Miss you forever bro ❤️❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽

  22. Discovered this song earlier this year. I’ve seen a lot of people get snubbed during the Grammys. But this. This ain’t right. He deserved it. Saved my brother’s life. I’m forever in his debt.

  23. Logic u are best … thanks..u have given a great messange to all..no rapper no singer has given like this message before…may god bless u and be the very best from all

  24. A year ago I was extremely depressed and had constant suicidal thoughts due to personal reasons, this song got me through so much of it and I know logic will never read this but this song got me out of a dark place. Thanks so much Logic
