Review: "This is My Time" - Francis On My Mind

When we’re young, we tend to have a more positive outlook on the world. We have limited knowledge, and do not yet know the wrongs of people and things. As we grow and learn, the world can become duller. We also miss the days of no stress and no responsibilities. Francis On My Mind wants her listeners to know that this doesn't have to happen. Her new single, “This is My Time,” is an upbeat pop bop about embracing your inner child at any age. The world is your playground. Enjoy the freedom of your adult life and try to make the most of every day. Try to focus on the good in others and see the glass as half full, not half empty.

“This is My Time” is an anthem about embracing your inner child, and it has the upbeat instrumentation to match. The first verse has a bright guitar and drums in the background as Francis On My Mind sings, “tell me how to find it, show me how to be.” This is the beginning of the story when she is feeling bogged down by adult life as we all are. At the end of the verse, she asks, “Is it okay if I never let go the way that I looked at the world when I did not know how it goes around? The chorus starts and the instrumentation is even brighter with the drums and happy synths. At the end of the second verse, Francis On My Mind declares “I know it’s okay if I never let go the way that I looked at the world when I did not know how it goes around.” In the chorus, she says “I’ll never leave my playground.” A playground is a place of great childhood memories. We still have a place to make memories. It’s just a lot bigger now. Francis On My Mind knows how freeing it is to be a child at heart, and she uses her musical gifts to persuade other listeners to do the same.

Francis On My Mind is a singer/songwriter who uses music as a mode of storytelling. Her songs tell tales of life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. “This is My Time” is her seventh single of 2023. If you want to hear more of her, I recommend her other single, “Are You Happy?” It is another upbeat song with a great Spanish guitar at the core. The lyrics tell the story of picking up the pieces after being cheated on and lied to. I enjoyed reviewing the music of Francis on My Mind and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
