about

Time & Age is the title track and second single that will be featured on Olivia's second full length album coming Saturday, January 28th 2017! This song discusses the inevitability of aging, and the opportunity we have as humans to invest our time in things that really matter.

lyrics

Time, sometimes I feel like I am running out of it
Sometimes I feel like I just can't keep up with it
Stop the clock, slow it down, sometimes I feel my time is running out

Age, sometimes I think I'm gaining it too soon
I wasn't ready yet, to say goodbye to days when people didn't need to plan a year ahead
And busy thoughts parade throughout my head
And at the age of twenty-four I've been wanting all the more
To tell my family why I really love them

We want the remnants of our youth to stay and not disappear
Rub the wrinkles from our eyes and hide the greys throughout our hair
But beauty is fleeting
Charm is deceiving
Grandeur misleading
We better put our pennies in the well that promises our youth will last

Vain, sometimes I think it's the world's middle name
Chivalry and love gone down the drain
What happens when the things you love get taken by the moth and rust
And all you are returns back to the dust

We want the remnants of our youth to stay and not disappear
Rub the wrinkles from our eyes and hide the grey throughout our hair
But beauty is fleeting
Charm is deceiving
Grandeur misleading
You better put your pennies in the well that promises your youth will last
