Hear Old Dominion’s New Single, ‘Written in the Sand’
“Written in the Sand” is a mellow, reflective tune that questions the future of a relationship. The accompanying lyric video plays out like a text conversation investigating the possibility of a love destined for either for greatness or a quick ending.
“Turn me on, turn me off, then you turn me back on by the weekend / And you won’t say the words that I want, but you flirt when you’re drinkin’,” the lyrics of “Written in the Sand” say. “I see those bubbles pop up like you’re texting, then they disappear / Let’s cut through the s–t then / Let’s get to what we’re doing here.”
The vibe of the chorus of “Written in the Sand” is more comfortable than the questions posed: “Are we just a backseat, tryna get it while we can? / Are we names in a tattoo or just a number on a hand? / Are we last-call kissing or will we be reminiscing with each other for the next 40 years? / Are we written in the stars, baby, or are we written in the sand?”
“Written in the Sand” follows Old Dominion’s first Happy Endings single, “No Such Thing as a Broken Heart.” The album was released on Aug. 25.
