A little love song.

A Woman And A Man

©2012 Robert Randall Burke

A crowded room
A subtle glance
A fleeting promise
Of romance
It's been this way
Since time began
Between a woman and a man.

A whispered word
A gentle touch
A knowing smile
That means so much
It's in the script
It's in the plan
For a woman and a man.

A stolen kiss
A soft caress
Passion's fire
You can't resist.

Soft music plays
As we embrace
A darkened room
A secret place
It's been this way
Since time began
Between a woman and a man.

Awesome. Gorgeous. Beautiful. "On all levels", as Noel would say... Song is incredible. Beautiful melody and beautiful lyric. Simple and elegant. The tracks are perfect - the mix, too. Nice guitar that you added as well.

And your vocal - outstanding.

A big WOW!

Man, this is so good!
Simple lyrics and great delivery.
I enjoyed the tune too and the middle 8 guitar playing the double stops - EXCELLENT!!
I was surprised at the long slow fade out ending - very right for the song and it also stops you having to figure out a decent BIAB ending - lol!
Top Class stuff, Bob
Many thanks

The music sets the mood for the lyrics perfectly. Enjoyed the song a lot. It would a good fit for Michael Buble. Nice guitar as well.

Love the song Bob. One change I would make. The last note should go down and hold a bit.

Bob, there is nothing little about this song! It is top shelf all the way.

As soon as I heard the chord progression and your outstanding vocal all I could think of is that the Frank Sinatra would have grabbed this one as soon as he heard it.

Fantastic work here!

This is a keeper!

Put me in the same boat as the rest of the crew, this is a wonderful song. For some strange reason it brought to mind Beauty and The Beast and that is a good thing as that too is an awesome melody.

Some melodies just grab me and this one did just that, heck I would love to put that song in my playlist for next week's gigs.

Great song - everything works here.

I'm especially partial to lyrics - this is top notch work.

This is superb.... I am starting to feel too inhibited to post songs on here, with the escalating quality like this one. Tasteful, balanced, understated, moving.... Love to use adjectives.

I am haunted by a vague memory of another song, with the lyric, "... between a woman and a man." I can't quite grasp it, but maybe it's a reggae tune. Can you help me out?

Floyd, Ian, Austin, Guenter, Robert, Rob, Mario, Danny, Curt and Brad,

Thanks for listening and the kind remarks.

I just did a copyright search and found one song with a similar title - “The difference between a woman and a man” by Bobby Braddock, who as it happens, co-wrote “He Stopped Loving Her Today” for George Jones, which is my favorite Country song of all time. Kate Bush has a song called “Between A Man And A Woman”, but I've never heard it or Kate Bush. I don't listen to much music.

I also found this one by “Flogging Molly”. Grand drinking music.

I got it, it came to me overnight, in the memorable voice of Peter Gabriel. Took a while to find it, though. It is "Blood of Eden," on the album called "Us". Not reggae, but sounds African to me. And coincidentally, Kate Bush (a very fine artist, worth looking up) has done some memorable tracks with Gabriel, but not on this album.

Here, done with Paula Cole:

VERY nice song Bob! Very classy ... to expand on what Danny said, it would be a home run in any live set. I can easily imagine the dance floor filling up with couples who are living the lyrics.

Two thumbs up!

Bob, that's a really excellent piece of work. I adore the chord progression.
It's all been said above; top drawer track.

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.
