Michael Stipe and Big Red Machine – No Time for Love Like Now

I first heard this a few months ago and it had been a regular listen ever since. It was made in the heart of lockdown and definitely has those vibes. I find its mix of sadness and hope irresistible.

Written by Michael Stipe and Aaron Dessner, produced by Aaron Dessner, with Orchestration by Bryce Dessner, and lyrics by Michael Stipe. NO TIME FOR LOVE LIKE NOW LYRICS

no time for breezy

no time for arguments

no time for love like now

there’s no time in the bardo

no time in the in-between #

no time for love like now

there’s no time for dancing

no time for undecideds

no time for love like now

where did this all begin to change

the lockdown memories can’t sustain

this glistening, hanging free fall

i turned away from the glorious light

i turned my head and cried

whatever waiting means in this new place

i am waiting for you

there’s no time for honey

no time for psalms and thresholds

whisper a sweet prayer sigh

where did this all begin to change

the lockdown memories can’t sustain

this glistening hanging free fall

i turned away from the glorious light

i turned my head and cried

whatever waiting means in this new place

i am waiting for you

your voice is echoing

love love love love love

i hear it far far away

and i am here waiting for you

i am waiting for you

whatever waiting means in this new place

i am waiting for you

i am waiting for you
