Hello my friends!

Today I’m ready to introduce you my new song with a simple but very thoughtful title “TIME”.

Work on the composition continued for a month. The melody and lyrics were written relatively quickly, but the vocal part turned out to be unexpectedly complicated – the issue was not even in the high key of the track, but in the motive itself and the chanted notes, which I certainly wanted to bring vibrato to. I spent four big recording sessions while making vocals, spent a huge amount of time choosing successful takes, processing and mixing them. Now you can listen to the result of my efforts on my website.

As in all my creative work, I continue to share with you the most cherished and hidden things I have – my thoughts and inner world. In a new song I raise the topic about eternal and unequal struggle of Man against Time. Since long ago, people have been looking for ways to  subdue time: alchemy was looking for an elixir of eternal youth, scientists tried to understand the secrets of time matter, science fiction dreamed of inventing a time machine and return to the past. No matter how much we want it, all life on earth is mortal and man is no exception. However we constantly postpone everything: a trip to visit our parents, buying something pleasant, fulfilling an old dream, or just meeting a good friend. But what’s the most important – we forget that time is the same for everyone, and one day you may not have a chance to finish your plan, and eventually come to an empty parental house, face a lack of former energy to carry out your ideas, or have no time to tell your loved ones they are important. From the very beginning I wanted this song to be perfect, because I wrote it in memory of my dad, who passed away on March 24, 2020.

My song is a reminder that life is fleeting. Appreciate every day you live and properly manage time allotted to us.

Time
Time

TIME

I VERSE:
I thought it was a game
In which we live forever.
And every time I play
I’m reaching the next level.

But then I realized
This life is only one.
You don’t have many tries
Before the game is done.

CHORUS:
Why do we have to die?
Why do we need to leave?
Life quickly passes by –
Truth that we can’t perceive.

What if there’s no escape?
What is behind the line?
Everything that we make
Dissolves in eternal time.

II VERSE:
Another day has gone.
How many are still there?
Beyond the edge of dawn
I’m hiding my despair.

If I could buy some time,
If I could change the past
I would have been with you
Each day as our last.

CHORUS:
-//-

CHORUS (with modulation):
[Instrumental solo]

What if there’s no escape?
What is behind the line?
Everything that we make
Dissolves in eternal time.
