The music video was written about by music journalist Avery Shepherd of Immersive Atlanta.
“Taken off his fifth album, Life Sucks, the track traces Smith’s memories of youth when the weight of the world was much lighter. Over echoing piano chords and a no-frills beat, he reminisces on his childhood, but what starts as a bittersweet back-in-the-day jam eventually turns darker as Smith finds himself examining his place in the world and the circumstances surrounding his present state of being. “What’s the point of living? / What’s the point of kids when they gotta go through everything I did just to be a better me?” he ponders, questioning the value of innocence in a life that leads to pain and hardship.” Read full article.
