In Our Own Time

by

Lindsey Buckingham



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This is the first single from Seeds We Sow, the sixth solo album by American musician and Fleetwood Mac vocalist/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. Recorded at his LA home, he played most of the instruments himself. The record came out on September 6, 2011 and was his first to be self-released.
The song is about Buckingham's relationship with his wife, the photographer Kristen Messner. He explained the song's meaning in an interview with Spinner: "I guess that song is about coming to terms with the fact that there are things that are always not going to be comfortable, things that you're not always going to understand in your life or in your relationship, and that to some degree, you've got to inject a constant dose of faith into the fact that things will evolve in their own way, in their own time, without you exerting a huge amount of control over the situation. There is only so much you can control or understand in any given situation, and you've got to somehow find the balance between being proactive in your involvement in anything and also being a bit passive about letting it have its own life as well."
