What About Me

guess that we were way too young
when we first kissed
there has to be a reason we ended up like this


back then love felt so good
and maybe we misunderstood
made the best of what we had
it never really seemed so bad


Now you don’t really love me
You’re just hanging on to a dream
the kids the cars the little house
thought you had it figured out
but baby what about me

worked our jobs never talked
we tried to ease the stress
Alcohol we tried it all
without much success


A restlessness that never died
late night movies make me cry
In my dreams a secret wish
Never to wake up like this


Now you don’t really love me
You’re just hanging on to a dream
the kids the cars the little house
You thought you had it figured out
but baby what about me

Tom,

This is terrific... a most enjoyable listen. I really like the way you set up the hook... very skilful.

The sound you've produced here is first class and your performance is perfect for the presentation. I honestly can't imagine anyone singing it better than you.

A really satisfying listen.

All the best with the contest,
Noel

I had these lyrics earmarked for a different style. They plugged right in. There are some great styles in this Xtra pak. Thanks, Tom

Excellent song. A well deserved win in the SS category.

My only nit is that the drums, especially the snare, is a bit to loud in the mix and too bright. Other than that Good job.

Ahhh Waterline....

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
