Jenny Doesn't Live Here Anymore
©2014 Robert Randall Burke/BMI


Jenny doesn't live here anymore
Left it all behind and closed the door
She lost all the battles
Then she won the war
Jenny doesn't live here anymore.

Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans
What is forever
If forever never comes?
When will she ever understand?

Somewhere the sun is shining
Through a cloud with a silver lining
On a world where she can be reborn.

Who knows where love goes when it dies?
When does indifference arise?
Does it slip away in darkness
Like a thief in the night?
Who knows where love goes when it dies?

Somewhere the sun is shining
Through a cloud with a silver lining
On a world where she can be reborn.

Jenny doesn't live here anymore.






Regards,

Bob

"She lost all the battles
Then she won the war "

"Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans"

This is an engaging write and the
above lines really stuck with me. The
arrangement and your vocal give
an ethereal feel that really fits
the lyric. Janice says she can
picture her walking away through the
fog. So....nice imagery!

We enjoyed listening.

J&B

"little" is not a word I would use to describe that.

It's huge!

Dig those strings throughout - and especially the "lead"...

Awesome vocal. (I like the big reverb).

A great listen. (and a cool title!)

Plan to enjoyed many listens...

Bob,

This is just fantastic! Really well done. Love the strings. Very reflective. Your vocals just keep getting better and better!

Love it.

Bob, I really like the write. The chord progression is perfect for this. Well sung and the production is spot on. Like Janice, I also see Jenny slipping away in the fog. Great job! Tom

I think this is your best to date.

Love your vocals - that reverb is outstanding!

Your lyrics are outstanding.

Super job on the chord changes and the strings.

Bob,

Beautifully sung. Very Rod Mckuen vibe for me. Loved the piano, those strings and "she lost all the battles and then she won the war" - really nice.

I agree with Janice and Bud these lines pop

"She lost all the battles
Then she won the war "

"Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans"

Nice performance; thanks for sharing!

+1 on that.

There's nothing simple about this, but I very much like the simplicity of the arrangement, if that makes any sense:)

Your delivery and presentation, vocally and musically, outstanding!

Hi there Bob.

Wow, that's some powerful reverb you've got working there. Fabulous big stereo wash over everything.

Back in the 80s there was this thing for "Concept" albums and somehow this sounds to me like it's part of a bigger project. Whatever. Did I say I liked it? Well I love it.

You really do produce some excellent stuff, Bob.

Cheers, ROG.

Hi ROG. Thanks for listening. Yeah, it's flooded with verb, but that's the sound I was going for. Always been a big Phil Spector fan! grin

Great style! What is the instrument on the right? It sounds like a guitar, is it BIAB?

Wonderfully moody!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
