SHE REMEMBERS


SHES READING THOSE WORDS
ON A FLICKERING SCREEN
SOME OF THEM HURTFULL
BUT ALL OF THEM MEAN
AND SHE WONDERS WHAT SHE DID WRONG TODAY

A SECOND GLANCE DOWN A CROWDED HALL
A NO GO SEAT WHEN THE HUNGER CALLED
SHE HAS TO BE STRONG AND SHE HAS TO BE BRAVE

ALONE AGAIN WHEN RECESS HITS
HEAD DEEP IN HER BOOK SO THE LOOKS DONT KILL
THE SALT FALLING FROM HER MISTY CLOUDY EYES

A LONELY RIDE ON A SCHOOL BUS HOME
NO TALKING OR LAUGHING EYES FIXED ON HER PHONE
SHES FEELING LIKE ITS HER TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

SHE TRYS TO SMILE AND TELL HERSELF SOMEDAY
ALL THIS HURT AND THIS PAIN WILL GO AWAY

BUT SHE REMEMBERS
WHEN SHES LAYING THERE IN THE DARK
THE HURT OF A WOUNDED HEART
HOW CRUEL LIFE IS SOMETIMES

BUT SHE REMEMBERS
THE PAIN HER HEART WENT THROUGH
JUST PRAYING ON WHAT TO DO
AND FIGHTING BACK THE TEARS

SHES IN A BETTER PLACE AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS
BUT ONE THING IS OH SO CLEAR
SHE REMEMBERS


SHE SEES THAT LITTLE GIRL AT THE BACK OF THE CLASS
HEAD HELD LOW REMINDER OF THE PAST
DEEP IN HER OWN LITTLE WORLD OF PAIN AND SORROW

AS THE LUNCH BELL RINGS SHE TAKES HER HAND
SAYS IT WILL ALRIGHT I UNDERSTAND
IVE BEEN THERE TO BUT BELEIVE THERES A TOMMOROW

ILL ALWAYS GONNA BE RIGHT HERE FOR YOU
YOUR STRENTGH MY LOVE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH


NOW SHE REMEMBERS
WHEN SHES LAYING THERE IN THE DARK
NOW THERES HURT WITHIN HER HEART
HOW BEAUTIFULL LIFE IS SOMETIMES

NOW SHE REMEMBERS
JUST WHAT LOVE AND FAITH CAN DO
BELEIVING THAT DREAMS COME TRUE
AND THANKING THE MAN UPSTAIRS

SHES IN A BETTER PLACE AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS
SHE S DONE WITH ALL THE CRYING WASTED TEARS
NOW SHE REMEMBERS

SHE REMEMBERS

Hi Brad,

That is a difficult subject to write a song about, but I think you nailed it! There's stuff for a (sad) movie in those lines of lyric.

The song is well-produced as well - I enjoyed my listen throughout the track!

Thanks for sharing!

This song is really emotionally charged and I think you did the subject matter justice. Thank you.

Steve,

Heartfelt lyrics that resonate, particularly with all we see and read on this topic. Nice melody to go with and solid production choices. Perhaps go a little stronger with the harmonies in the chorus? Maybe—something to think about if you plan on doing more tweaking. Enjoyed the listen!

All the best,

Deej

Wow - very powerful and appropriately executed. There's sincerity in every aspect of this tune, and you can can feel that it comes from the heart. Very compassionate and some incredibly memorable melodies throughout too.

Wouldn't change a thing - great work and thanks for sharing smile

Written with emotion and performed with emotion.

The lyric is excellent and brings more attention to a subject that is at last gaining some attention.

Nice band too!

Well done.

Brad,
This is REALLY cool and as I listened I could see myself using it at school as part of an interactive lesson I prepared on the topic - part of a peer leadership/anti-bullying program the school does - BUT I came to the
verse...
"NOW SHE REMEMBERS
JUST WHAT LOVE AND FAITH CAN DO
BELIEVING THAT DREAMS COME TRUE
AND THANKING THE MAN UPSTAIRS"

and that blew up the idea as it bypassed the great development of the idea of a teacher helping, things improving through resilience as well as social skills development.
Up to that point I was hooked but bringing religion into it means I can't use it.

On a musical level I think this is pretty cool, classic developing narrative/time slip and some excellent images conjured.
Well done.

Apart from the sad story, it is a nice, strong performed song.
And I liked the nice way you made that break somewhere in the middle of the song.

Bye,
