Hi Ken,

That was a really nice listen. I love the hook! It's such a wonderful way of looking at the effect of time. Very creative.

Is it possible to post the lyrics? There were some words that I couldn't appreciate properly - even after a few listens. That could well be related to the fact that I'm Australian but it would be great to be able to see the whole story.

All in all, wonderful!

Noel

Thank you for the comments. For those who asked my mother is doing well, and wishes y'all could see the rainbows. She cried when she heard the song, I'm taking that as a compliment

Noel96 I am pasting the words to this song


Rainbows Around the Moon
(Verse 1)
Mama sits on the back porch breathing
Gazing at the empty chair
Talking to the cool wind drifting
Never seems to be unaware
Visits with the angels listening
Golden shadows lighting off her hair
Satisfied with a knowing smile
Says goodnight to the breathless sky

(Chorus)
She watches rainbows around the dark moon
Talks to angels in her palace room
Dances in the hope of glory
Prays to God she’ll be going home soon

Verse 2
She pours a glass of that Texas sweet tea
Walks along an unpaved road
Talks of days of misty tear stains
Soft and low while her hunger grows
Knows one day when the angels are calling
She’ll see her loved ones there
Talks of Jesus, I can almost see Him
While she sings and old time hymn

(Chorus and Instrumental)

(Bridge)
She dreams in colors of the moonlit rainbow
Keeps her change in an old fruit jar
Wishes on a four leaf clover
Wanders off among the stars

(Chorus)

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
