Sorry's Not Magic




Taking influence from the likes of Tame Impala and Methyl Ethel, 'Sorry's Not Magic' is an exhilarating, psychedelic groove, with all aspects of the track recorded and performed by Temple himself. The single was created over a course of one night after an argument that Timi Temple had with his partner. The track's hallucinogenic vibe transitions into a more of sober ordeal as Temple addresses the way the word "Sorry" looses it's meaning after it is thrown around too much.

"I guess the song represents my eyes opening, shackles breaking, and myself becoming free of the perpetual break-up make-up relationship." -Timi Temple


Sorry's Not Magic Lyrics

For months I walked the thinnest ice,
Looked deep into your haunting eyes,
Blinded by your hearts disguise...
I was...

Suddenly we’re crashing down,
My mouth is open there’s no sound,
Frozen by what I had found,
I was...

You say that you’re,
Sorry but,
Sorry’s not magic

I say that I’m
Sorry but,
Sorry’s not magic

Crumbling away like it’s nothing at all,
Holding on with my fingers I’m about to fall,
Going so fast until we hit the wall,
Holding on with my fingers I’m about to fall,
