Nashville Singer/songwriter Alyssa Scott Reminisces in New Single "Where Does It Go"
Country singer-songwriter Alyssa Scott releases new single "Where Does It Go." The single is now available on all digital streaming platforms. You can listen to the single here.
Alyssa Scott’s “Where Does It Go” leaves listeners with their mouths agape and minds reminiscing. The song is a melancholic, nostalgic ballad with themes of time and reflection. Her writing is so powerful that it leaves her audience asking: "Where did the time go? Are we living it to the fullest?" Scott’s best lyric of the song has to be, “One day I’ll be wishing for that someday/and then that day will be begging to stay/and hope that time will somehow freeze in its tracks,” this is the whole idea of the song encased into one phrase. It’s beautiful in such a gray way, and personifies the reminiscent and melancholy being felt about time itself. You can hear every emotion coursing through Alyssa Scott’s voice. The song is bare in a way that makes it even more vulnerable and even prettier. Songs like these give Adele and Alison Krauss energy, and Scott fits right in. “Where Does It Go” is a ballad for a rainy day, something to keep in the back of your pocket. Scott reminds us to live in the moment, because before we know it, we will be old and gray, and asking where did all the time go.
