Single: Time
Artist: WINNIE
Label: Safe Haven Records, Dahlhouse Entertainment
Release Date: May 14th, 2017
Genre: Acoustic Pop
Written by: Winnie Minami
Produced by: Winnie Minami
Length: 3:25


Time is a song by the American recording artist and actress Winnie Minami who goes by the mononym WINNIE. It is written and produced solely by Minami, created during her 8th month of pregnancy. Returning after a year's worth of a hiatus to focus on her family, [Time is another new sound for the 29-year-old singer, all 3 of her singles so far giving listeners a different perspective of her artistry. Time is an acoustic pop song performed with an acoustic guitar and steering vocals from Winnie Minami. Lyrically the song reflects on WINNIE's life and how it's all about to change after her surprise pregnancy. Released on Mother's Day, the emotional track goes over all of Minami's regrets and fears, revealing that through her pregnancy, she's realized her true calling. Critics have praised the track, comparing the song to a lot of country classics, describing it as an "overdue-coming-of-age anthem for first time mothers everywhere". Dedicated to her daughter Minnie Minami, Winnie sings, "How can I give 18 when I just lost 29?" doubting her ability to be a mother but hoping that she'll be given enough time to learn.


WINNIE

Wasted all this time chasing after pointless men
Wasted all this time knowing but doubting who I am
Because when you're young, you swear you know the sun, you think it'll always rise
You swear there'll be chances, even as they walk out of your life
Wasted all this time trying to be like other girls
Wasted all this thinking it was the end of the world
Because when you're young, you just do that, it comes naturally
Think if you can't live the good life, you'll never die in peace

But I'm old enough to know
Better is just what doesn't bring me to tears
I've been doing it wrong
But I had plans to cherish these years

How can I give 18 when I just lost 29?
I never could get this time thing right

Wasted all this time chasing trying to be an adult
Wasted all this time not doing the things that I want
Because when you're young, you just do that, it's almost instinct
Think if you don't live their life, then you aren't living
Wasted all this time, finally had a hold on my life
Some knock on wood so as not to jinx it, now I know why
If I was young, I would go back, the sun would still rise
I'd still have chances, you'd never have a life

But I'm old enough to know
Better is just what doesn't bring me to tears
I've been doing it wrong
But I had plans to cherish these years

How can I give 18 when I just lost 29?
I never could get this time thing right
The timing's just never on my side
Nothing's ever on my side

But as your protector, I'll be way better than mine
No matter what, I'll always be on your side, your side, your side, your side, your side, your side

Instantly, I'll know
Better is just what keeps you from tears
For once, there'll be nothing wrong
But I'll cry a river every year

I've lost 29 and I'll be in debt for 50 more
Wasted all this time and now I need more, need more
Wasted all this time and now I need more, need more
Wasted all this time and now I need more for you

Joshua: Absolutely love your lyricism, not only here but throughout your past releases too. Huge fan of your artistry. I love it when songs tell real stories and have true emotional depth. It really takes it to the next level and helps create not only a snapshot of your life, but will resonate with many fans and casual listeners across the globe. It's more than a glossy pop song. It's raw and many can relate. I for one am not a father...nor do I have the ability to give birth but I can still appreciate the sentiment and purpose of this track. It's a true coming-of-age anthem for many. Also, I think that the acoustic vibes are truly beautiful and it allows the lyrics and your voice to take the forefront. Keep up the great work :)

Erica: fantastic. This is a real....winnie-r.

Nina: God,love. I think i physically felt that stop my heart for a second. Fucking terrible joke.

Erica: I'm sorry,Nina. I can't hear you over the shine of my favorite social media award.

Nina:*sighs loudly and speaks under her breath.* Got a whole bloody year of this ahead of me,don't I?

Erica: anyways. Back to Winnie. Motherhood is scary. My foray into it wasn't a surprise. But the circumstance sure was. you know what? I wasn't good at it at first. I all but tried to give takara up. That pressure of YOU CANNOT FUCK UP...is hard to deal with. Life gets real and it gets there fucking fast. You'll be great,Winnie.

Johnny Carter: Just WOW! This is just amazing! Like everything on this song! From the artwork, to the simple production, to your lyrics and everything! I love that you released this song on Mother's Day! The lyrics feel so personal and the listener can really experience the emotions and situations, people grow up and realize the mistakes they've done and how time flies! I love that you show a mother's love for her child and that she'll do anything to protect it!

OOC: Winnie is back!! Not to say that she's ever gone, but I like the change of the style and the lyrics are beautiful. A true quality song that isn't just a thrown together generic bop, we all love hose but we can also appreciate art, and that's what this is :)
