Making Up For Lost Time - Single

totalrko "Making up for lost time" sounds and feels exactly like reconnecting/reuniting after a long long time, which makes one listening to the track yearn especially in times like these.
It's also perfect for those days when everything is calm and quiet where you can only hear the birds sing and the sun shines through your Curtains and you lie in bed thinking about nothing.

I hope that you are happy Almost to the point it makes me Think that I Could take a chance with you I know that you still feel it So I know it’s up to me I know that I will simply choose for you Making up for lost time Making up for lost time Making Up I hate to see you with somebody new I know I’m not supposed to But I’m worried He’s a prick Who can say when we are ready Just be sure that you don't settle Down before You know the truth of him Making Up for Lost Time Making Up for Lost Time Making Up For lost Time You came out swinging but you got hit back Like a leech he drains you Slowly Forgive yourself it its not showing Making Up for Lost Time Making Up for Lost Time Making Up for Lost Time Making Up for Lost Time


Making Up For Lost Time
the first single from the upcoming NEW full album by Paragon Cause

Making Up For Lost Time is a wonderful song about time. Although written prior to Covid, we feel as though it has taken on a new meaning. The last few years have been a whirlwind.  After spending a decade not pursuing our dreams and passions,  we felt that we had lost them.  Luckily, someone else saw them in us and coaxed them out.  Little by little we gained speed until we were racing along.  If you spend your life playing it safe and not taking chances are you going to regret it?

We had an idea for a song while working with producer Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes). Jay had an idea to combine the feeling of a Jesus and Mary Chain song with some song structure used by The Everly Brothers. We spent the night listening to Bananarama to really try to get the idea for a chorus in our mind and get into a unique mindset. Jay wrote the guitar parts and Sune programmed the drums. At that point, we knew we had a beautiful song. The incredible words and vocals by Michelle took it to another level.

The song features a sustained guitar reminiscent of The Jesus and Mary Chain with a chord structure based on 50s pop rock. The song builds in intensity as we start to make up for lost time.
