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.

"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...

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!

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!

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
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.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
