Lyrics for Only Time Makes It Human by King Princess:

Intro
La la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la (Whoo)
La la la la la la la la (Whoo)
La la la la la la la la

Verse 1
I wanna know about letting go
Cutting all ties could be beautiful, babe
Know you told me you'd never call
It pisses me off how you never call (Never called)

Pre-Chorus
Whoo, and I'll keep 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

Chorus
And it sucks that I think about her
'Cause thinking 'bout her leaves me lonely (Leaves me lonely, leaves me lonely)
And it's not that I wanna suffer
But thinking of her keeps me going (Keeps me going, keeps me going)

Post-Chorus
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la

Verse 2
And I wanna know what she thinks of me
Nothing I do is done quietly, babe
People change when you break their heart
Everything changed when she broke my heart (She broke my heart)

Pre-Chorus
Whoo, and I'll keep 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

Chorus
And it sucks that I think about her
'Cause thinking 'bout her leaves me lonely (Leaves me lonely, leaves me lonely)
And it's not that I wanna suffer
But thinking of her keeps me going (Keeps me going, keeps me going)

Post-Chorus
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la
Whoo, la la la la la la la la

Bridge
Who she was when she was my girl
Who she was when she was my girl
Who she was when she was my girl
Who she was when she was my girl

Chorus
And it sucks that I think about her
'Cause thinking 'bout her leaves me lonely (Leaves me lonely, leaves me lonely)
And it's not that I wanna suffer
But thinking of her keeps me going (Keeps me going, keeps me going)

Post-Chorus
Whoo, la la la la la la la la (When she was my girl)
Whoo, la la la la la la la la (When she was my girl)
Whoo, la la la la la la la la (When she was my girl)
Whoo, la la la la la la la la (When she was my girl)

“Only Time Makes It Human” finds King Princess in the doldrums of unrequited love as she reflects on how creating music doesn’t seem to help her shake a heartbreak:

All of her love became an album
And I’m still the one who’s crying

The music video of the song features an animated version of King Princess viewing the flesh-and-blood form of herself on different screens. The video was animated by Swedish visual artist Pastelae and was directed by Quinn Wilson, who is known for directing the music videos for Lizzo’s 2019 hit “Juice” and her 2018 song “Boys.”

The song was co-produced by the Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter and her frequent collaborator Mike Malchicoff. It is her first release since the deluxe edition of Cheap Queen in February of 2020.

“Only Time Makes It Human” was announced one day prior to its release via a trailer which features some King Princess branded underwear, a potential hint at her future merch.
