Siv Jacobsen – Most of the Time

“Most of the Time” is a reflection of how the past suddenly can awaken in one’s mind. We don’t know who Norwegian singer/songwriter Siv Jacobsen refers to, but there is also a hint of darkness and regret in the song when she sings, “I wanna know what it feels like to be alone without you in my mind.”

Siv gives us some background about how she wrote the song:

“I knew that in going there it might awaken some difficult memories, but I was completely taken aback by how intensely I felt pulled back into who I was and how I felt all those years ago. I realised I had some unpacking to do, so that I could begin to properly come to terms with and understand those memories.”

She adds:

“Most of the Time is about not being able to forget a particularly difficult relationship from my past. When left undealt with, the memories seemed to heighten in my sleep, in my subconscious, day and night, almost as if I was being haunted. It’s about how our past affects our future, how it can affect our personalities morphing into someone slightly different. Being back in this place again after such a long time was a much greater shock to my system than I would have ever thought it could be, and it forced me to unbox a lot of things I thought I had safely stored away in the back corners of my mind. In the end, it’s about reminding myself that I am feeling better now, most of the time.”

“Most of the Time” is the first new song after Siv’s 2020 album “A Temporary Soothing.” Listen to our Song Pick of the Day on your favorite streaming platform or watch the lyric video below:
