Believe
Music & Lyrics copyright Stephen W. Young

Somewhere in the middle
Of a broken life
There's a light to remind you
It's gonna be alright
When your whole world is spinning round
Plant your feet on solid ground
And believe

I believe in the goodness
Of a little child
And I believe in the sweetness
Of a little girl's smile
And I believe that anything is possible
With a loving God
And a heart that's full
When your whole world is spinning round
Just plant your feet on solid ground
And believe

When my whole world is spinning round
I plant my feet on solid ground
And I believe
I believe

---

Have a great day!

Steve

Great harmony and like how the song builds.

I also thought it was cool you used the "believe" RTs to write a song called Believe.

Well done.

Hi Steve,

Everything you touch is so good! Your songwriting (music and lyrics) and your production, not to mention your vocals. I am envious of your talent. You mentioned you played violin, guitar and piano, too. How many instruments do you dabble with. Do you ever play out in public much now?

Thanks,
Rod M

Hi Josie,

Thanks so much! Believe it or not, I didn't really notice the connection of the Believe song with the Believe RealTracks, until after I posted the song, when I read the song memo. lol! I usually write most of my songs pretty much in my head (arrangement and all). I let it sort of roll around in my head (there's plenty of room up there) for usually a day or two. Then when I sit down to BIAB, I try to recreate what I hear in my head. Sometimes it comes out almost exactly like it, sometimes the song sort of morphs into the final product.

Thanks very much for your comments. Your comments are always welcome!

Steve

#TBT Band-in-a-Box Finds!

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...

Have any of you come across something nostalgic like this these days? Let's see it!
(remember the first Audiophile version?!)
