Make It Sweet

Album: Old Dominion (2018)
Charted: 56
  • This perky, positive song is about how the important thing in life is being with the one you love.

    I'm stuck on you, you're stuck on me
    I never gotta wonder where my honey be
    I ain't savin' all my sugar for a Saturday night
    Seven days a week I got an appetite
    The sunsets like a tangerine, let's find a road we've never seen
    Don't waste another mile or a minute not kissin' me
    Life is short, make it sweet

    No matter what life throws at you and whatever money worries you might have, you'll be fine if you have the right person by your side.
  • The acoustic, lighthearted tune is sweet for Old Dominion, as the band's only agenda the day in January 2018 they created the song had been to start work on their follow-up to Happy Endings. However, the words just came tumbling out, and the next thing they knew, they had recorded "Make It Sweet."

    "That [final] recording is probably the second time we've ever played that song," lead singer Matthew Ramsey told Billboard. "You can kind of hear the excitement and the energy we have for it right there, because we had just created it and said, 'Okay, let's record it.'"
