Collier, Jacob - Make Me Cry Lyrics

In every sea there's a mouth of a river
Where waterfall riches flow down
Why do they cry?
No one knows why
In every mouth there's a word of forgiveness
That melts all the ice to the ground
Why do you sigh?
I don't know why

Why does the sky fall down
Like pouring rain?
To let it flow again
Gonna make you feel alright
Take your dreams, keep them out of sight
Wanna make you come alive
Close your eyes, keep you warm at night
So come a little closer to me
So many things I want you to see
My darling

In every laugh is the sorrow
Of all of the tears that you've held for so long
Would you make me cry?
Oh, let me run dry
In every tear are the eyes of a father
And mother that brought you to see
Sing lullaby
As you say goodnight, night, night (goodnight)

Why do the stars look down (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and 10)
And feel no shame (Counting up the droplets of the tears falling from the sky)
When they are all the same?
Gonna set your mind alight
Keep you close to me and hold you tight
Wanna keep you burning bright
Take your words, shine them like a light
So come a little closer to me (Come a little closer)
So many things I want you to see (Many think I want you to see)
My darling

In every soul is the need to grow older
To speed up the passing of time
I don't know why
But it makes me cry

  1. N3K0_ TR0N

    Anyone here from Porter Robinson's "cherished music" playlist?

    That voice i did not expect to come out of his slim frame.

  8. Man The Dan

    whoever directed this music video is as much of a genius as Jacob Collier

  9. George Higgins

    Ok the music is amazing but how did he walk in front of himself at 2:26???

  10. Zach Wilbur

    In every soul is the need to grow older. To speed up the passing of time, I don't know why, but it makes me cry.

    I have a theory that we as humans experience time according to the harmonic series. When you're 1, a year is your whole life, when you're 2, its half your life. Etc. And for someone like Jacob who's heart and soul is woven through the harmonic series in his music, it doesn't surprise me that he'd feel the same way about time in human perspective:)

  11. Christopher J

    Jacob makes me want to say I love you all.

  12. tormaks

    ARMONIA is the way that bring you home. Incredibile.

  30. DéVaughn Rolle

  31. Pretty Rosita

    He looked like he did performing arts before music

    god bless

    I thought that, too. I think its just his creative vibe and presence 💕

    Nicholas Keough

    I think he did perform in at least a few operas, actually

    Del Jefferys

    No way, 100% Musician 0% Jazz hands

  32. Aitor

    weird music

  33. Laurence Long

    That line at 2:43 is not on the Spotify version, is it? So was it there and got cut or did you add it in later?

  34. Reko Swavey

    Nice morph at 0:58 Jacob! The editing is amazing in this video but it's little things like these that ya gotta cover up!

    3:12 the hidden hideaway reference made me laugh out loud

    Bruno Semi

    Nice spotting!

  40. Nitrous McBread

    I'm all ears, but JC skirts dangerously close to being just too rinky-dink. I'd like to see him off his tits on Ruddles starting a ruckus.

  41. uo uo

    THANKS you for the song

  42. Bunny is Happy

    This songs "Make Me Cry" like it said.

  43. Cprime 100

    I need 1:12-1:22 on a loop

  44. 3ARTES

    Man from another space :)

  45. xltsalad

    I love how his voice sounds like its slowed down when he uses his lower register

  46. Ryan Ward

    But have you considered creating your own children's show, with each episode featuring some music education and some philosophical discussion?

    It would seem the greater your influence on this world, the better off we'll all be.

  47. JustZaya

    I LOVEEEE his voice. It's like the warmest, safest hug

    George Higgins

    A hug from Jacob would be the greatest moment of my life, no homo.


    @George Higgins Same 😣

  48. Brad Wilcox

    you ever wonder who he's singing about

  49. Gary Lloyd

    Unique talent, unique voice, genius creativity, gives me huge hope for the future of music.

  50. Davide Fauro

    4500th time that i hear this,
    4500th time that I'm crying.
    When serious stuff comes up letting you a wreck, it's also bound to make you cry.
    But it just feels ok.

  51. dhoyt902

    You heal me brother. Thank you.

  52. Nite Lawliet

    You may tune your instrument to A=432 Hz for this one if you dont want to feel like a dumbass like me trying to understand why my guitar sound a bit higher than it should😁

  53. Shumit Rehman

    you Jamie Cullum for introducing me to this amazing talent!

  54. Theatre of Itches

    This is so incredibly beautiful, yet still i cannot resist to wish for a punk Cover from him

  55. michael e

    Beautiful . . .

  56. chris burton

    This song is so special!

  57. chris burton

    Jacob, what is the tuning on this? Not 440, correct?

  58. Andrew Pitts

    can you teach me how to play this song Jacob. I want to play on guitar

  59. Danilo A.F. Tubito

    you're a miracle

  60. Bluebee Majarimenna

    Somewhere there is a universe of Jacob Colliers

  61. Tom Einam

    Jacob can only perform with himself because there is no one else good enough!

  62. Super Noodles

    Love his musicality but not so keen on his singing voice though

    Theatre of Itches

    Is it the seeming contrast to his age? Thats what threw me off (at first)

    Super Noodles

    @Theatre of Itches I just not keen on the tone how he articulate sounds/words.

    But the actual pitch and harmonies he makes are amazing

  63. Djanko Kahn

    white Thundercat

  76. rina amalia

    This song is melting down my baby blues 😭 Thanks Jacob Collier...

  77. Daniel Wheat

    I know he’s trying to be respected as a musician and artist, and I appreciate that, but this man is absolute sex. Personality, talent, looks... I’m pregnant.

  78. Maizey Orr

    2:20 this is just for me, keep scrolling

  79. Sweet Heart

    This song reminds me of Nick Drake's song "One Of These Things First".

  80. Edward Hurlburt

    Talented musician, I'm just not feeling that voice at all.

    Bill Rowse

    It grows on you

  81. Oscar Courtney

    just saw him at qpac in brisbane australia, acompanied by the amazing maro, robin mullarky and christian euman
    he was more than amazing,
    as adam neely once said, this man is obnoxiously good at music, and not just the technical side, he is one of the most pure and raw musicians i've ever seen

  82. Jenero Atmadja

    The description says "Listen to Make Me Cry" and i thought i should listen so he'll cry since he asked for it. Guess who's crying now?


    Jenero Atmadja

    Before anyone come at me :
    I know the description doesn't mean it that way 🤣

  83. Κωστας Βουλγαρης

    See? No drugs needed to do all this...

  84. JusJrdn

    amazing.... the song and the video... amazing

  85. Ryan Govender

    Can we just appreciate 3 key changes in the chorus?

  86. Antonius Nies - Kompositionen etc.

    1:00 This chord progression gives me goosebumps each single time

  87. jake marlow

    Creative genius!

  88. Nico Vilches

    I love how this song STARTS in a micro tonal key. Savage.

  89. Frank Washington Other

    3:12 that motif from hideaway gets me every time

  90. Naty Dunnie

    Have you met Grace Vanderwaal ?

  91. o. O

    So peaceful it makes me feel...

  92. Mistsu

    Everytime I listen to this song it sounds lower than before, idk why :/


    it's tuned a=432, not the standard 440 that we're used to

  93. 海中壮太


  94. World Trad & Ethno Folk Channel

    Jacob's songs are religious songs from a bright heart ... 💚

  95. Derek Mathias

    At 3:15 does everyone hear the Easter egg to hideaway ?!

  96. Mariajosé León Rosas

    Tahis one make cry man... I love you. Gracias por existir!

  97. WhyCan'tIRemainAnonymous?!

    That switch from 6/8 to 5/8 is perfect. Makes you literally skip a heartbeat at exactly the point in the song where you should.


    Yep, perfect balance between the heart and the mind!

  98. Robert Prieto

    Like si hablas español, comenta marico el que lo lea xd
