The making of this album has been just that: A Matter Of Time:

What began as a full-length album back in 2014, has turned into a 5-song EP, which after many twists and turns, is now the 3rd studio project release by singer-songwriter Katie Sachs.

This albums covers topics, such as: choice, resilience, life cycles and defiance. As Katie's first completely solo-produced album, the focus was on creating something lyrically honest and sonically representative of who she truly is as an artist. Growing up with Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin, Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin, and Ms. Lauryn Hill as her vocal icons and teachers, this album displays her roots in early Jazz/Blues and Neo-soul. (Of course with her own unique twist and multi-faceted musical taste.) The result of all of it is "A Matter Of Time."

Track Name: Agony

When Agony is close behind
Put down all the pieces of your mind
Let the rivers of eyes make you blind
And succumb to the arrows of the great divine

When hiding out feels like a drug
And loneliness fits all nice and snug
Come out of your skin and give it a hug!
And lay it on the floor like a bear skin rug

Wasted time is not a tangible thing
You can’t collect it from the landfill
You can’t buy it from a king
It’s passing on another level


I’m satisfied alone,
But constantly keeping an eye on the door
The finest time to walk is the finest time to crawl
And there’s a hole in the wall
And I’m not in love, not in love

Made some exceptions for the days that we were together
And I know it’s time to let you go, but I’m afraid that I won’t
Find nothing better

Track Name: Constant and Relentless
Constant and Relentless


Privacy is just a matter of time
The curtains hide the outlines
Of twisted shadows that are hard to define
It think he’s eating my heart out!!


And I don’t know what he’s singing about
It’s constant and relentless
Tell me how to get you out of my head and
Onto my mattress

Chorus 1:

Living in the city with my people holding on
I got to get out right now cause my ears hurt
And I’m wrong


I’m buying ingredients, but I don’t know what to make
I just want to eat it with a spoon
Are you real or are you fake?
I hope I find out soon

Chorus 2:

I’m happy in my window, I can see you from afar
But I know I’ve got to climb out if I want to find out who you are

When memories are all you’ve got
It’s constant and relentless
I’ll wait it out – I’ve made it this far. But it’s hollow and it’s senseless
It’s hollow and it’s senseless….
It’s constant and relentless!
Track Name: Baby Fever
Baby Fever

Wake up silly eggs, I noticed you are here
This may sound rather frightening
But my lady clock is ticking to deaf ears


I am holding on
To the ones already born
And the ones still yet to come
And the ones already gone

X 2


Baby fever’s gone by
Without an antidote
Without an aspirin
Or aspirations for a baby
Still got a few years left
Maybe I will care for one
Already on the earth or push a new one between my legs



If you want me to
I can stay here
I will go outside
But don’t ask me to make a break for it
If you’re not up for it, or if you can’t decide.

Track Name: All I Know

Wake from your sleep in the blue lit sky
All I know, All I Know
Shiver in the night, rise slowly in disguise
All I know, All I Know

You were a child not long ago
Compared to the history of the universe

Wide eyed and ready for the day, for the day
All I know, All I Know
Watching the clock tick tock, OH MY GOD!!!
All I know, All I Know

Make believe that you are here with me
Though no one can see behind the shadow of the tree

You passed away, but I still see your face
In the snow, in the cold
All I know, All I Know, All I know, All I Know
Track Name: Lonely Mountain

Verse 1:
Rainy Days come to us all
I watch them from across the hall
And out the window I see water fall
Try to touch it but instead I hit the wall

Chorus 1:
Lonely Mountain
How did I find you?
I think I'm here to stay
Hold the women buried inside you
Like a sexy cemetery

Verse 2:
I get a lot of things done
It's the secret of my cannibalism
But when I see that water fall
the oil in my blood will separate the truth from the wisdom

Chorus 2:
Lonely Mountain
I want to climb you
Before the break of day
Scale the edges with a harness and a belt loop
I got to get away

A pitch fork and a couple of beers
I will dig my sweet ass right out of here
changing with the weather and rolling with the tears
I just hope it won't take years

Chorus 3:
Lonely Mountain
I will defy you
Some strange and ugly day
find the beauty in the places where it's hard to look
Love is hidden away
