Watch the Heartbreaking Music Video Starring a Minnesota Teenager Facing Just Months to Live

"If only I had a little bit more time"

Zach Sobiech, 17, likely has just months to live.

After being diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2009, he endured multiple surgeries and months of chemo therapy. However, the cancer still spread to his pelvis and lungs. There are no known effective treatments remaining.

Instead of giving up all hope, the Lakeland, Minn. native has turned to music as a way to say goodbye to his friends and family, though his music and story will likely touch thousands of people's lives as well.

But Zach's story is much more inspirational coming directly from him. In a music video for a song called "Clouds," written by Zach and posted on YouTube, he tells his touching story:

"As Zach fights to live, he remains the same joyful soul he has always been. He still smiles as brightly as he did before cancer - it just means more now," reads the video's description.

Here are the lyrics to Zach's song "Clouds":

Well I fell down, down, down

Into this dark and lonely hole

There was no one there to care about me anymore

And I needed a way to climb and grab a hold of the edge

You were sitting there holding a rope

And we'll go up, up, up

But I'll fly a little higher

We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer

Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now

When I get back on land

Well I'll never get my chance

Be ready to live and it'll be ripped right out of my hands

Maybe someday we'll take a little ride

We'll go up, up, up and everything will be just fine

And we'll go up, up, up

But I'll fly a little higher

We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer

Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now

If only I had a little bit more time

If only I had a little bit more time with you

We could go up, up, up

And take that little ride

And sit there holding hands

And everything would be just right

And maybe someday I'll see you again

We'll float up in the clouds and we'll never see the end

And we'll go up, up, up

But I'll fly a little higher

We'll go up in the clouds because the view is a little nicer

Up here my dear

It won't be long now, it won't be long now
