I wrote this song while I was in a Hospital in NY State when I was 25. It took them a whole week to find out that I had Hepatitis "A" which they now call Hep "C".

Lyrics:
A New Day
By Horst Hartung 1976

A new day has begun, as the sun’s light shines in my eyes
As the flowers are swaying to the children who are playing
And the young sparrow, learns to fly

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

As the dreams carry us on, sunken hearts reach for the sky
Places you think of where there was so much love
A feeling come true and alive

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

There is a treasure for you to be found
Somewhere, awaiting us all

A new day has begun, as the sun’s light shines in my eyes
As the flowers are swaying to the children who are playing
And the young sparrow, learns to fly

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

I thank God I’m alive
I thank God I’m alive

Enjoy....

Another great tune!! Love the feel, and love the vocal. Really nicely done all the way around. I think the mix could be a bit brighter. I love the organic feel you get but it seems that this one is a little light on the high end. Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

This was a good production and I liked the harmonies. Good choice for instrumentation. You have nice varieties between the different songs you've posted so far. It's keeping things interesting.

Great feel and arrangement, love the vocals and the message. On the mix, it could be a tad brighter - maybe cut a little of the low mid/lows?

I really like your style Horst.

Horst, This is good write. The vocals are great. The arrangement is just right for the style. I agree it could use some brightening. Maybe in the mastering stage. Tom

Hello Josie....

This was a very old song and I've played around with it with older versions of Powertracks but was never happy with the finished product.

I'm hoping to re-do this song with 2014 or maybe 2015 version of Realband. I'm still not happy with it so I'll keep at it til I get it right...

Love what your doing with your music....

Hello Guenter...

I like mixing things up and don't like being stuck with just one style of music....I like all kinds of music...so I always try to do something different in each song I write....it make it more interesting....

Hello Alyn...

This song has a long way to go before it's finished. It seems like every new version of Realband, I want to change a lot of things in my older songs...Maybe version 2015 will be the one for this song...

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
