Raleigh Ritchie – Time in a Tree

Raleigh Ritchie - Time in a Tree

I just want time in a tree
I need a place just for me
Somewhere that I can be free
Keep faith and just be
What you feel

II 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 feel

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

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 (for me)
Somewhere that I can be free (I can be free)
Keep the faith and just be (Just be)
What you feel

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

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 feel
