STORY OF SONG
“Only Time Makes It Human” is the latest single from American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist King Princess. The track is a new-wave dance-pop genre, written by King Princess and Nick Long, with production done by King Princess and Mike Malchikoff.
“Only Time Makes It Human” is a song dedicated to an ex-lover that King Princess cannot shake and feels as if all their music is about them. The lyrics “Whoo, and I’ll keep on selling all my problems / And she’ll be the one who buys them / Whoo, all of her love became an album / And I’m still the one who’s crying”, could be a reference to King Princess’ previous partner Amandla Stenberg, who King Princess was with for over two years. The title of the track is also a reference to how time is the greatest healer.
