All About the Song
“Makin’ Up for Lost Time” talks about finding the person you love. Sometimes it takes a long time to be with the right person. For others, they immediately find that person. However, it doesn’t matter how long it takes, what matters is finding that perfect person. In the song, the narrator wonders why it took a while before they’ve met.
Now that we’re together and we’re where we belong
I can’t help but wonder why, why did it take so long
But, at least they have found each other. They have this feeling that they were really meant to be together.
I turn around and get lost in the look that you give to me
I drift away when I hear you say you’ve only lived to find me
Darling, let me hold you in my arms, darling, oh, so tight
I’ve been waiting for you most of my life
