YOU NEVER SAID A WORD

you showed me what these arms are for
and what a kiss could be
lessons on just how hard i could fall
were taught so tenderly
i know two hearts can beat as one
girl, you showed me how
you taught me all i know about love
but you left one thing out

   you never said a word about leaving
   you left me without a clue
   now that you're gone how do i go on
   what am i supposed to do
   how do i face losing you
   i don't even know where to start
   you never said a word about leaving
   or what to do with this broken heart

you never told me how bad it would be
when we went our separate ways
all that talk about forever
there was nothing on a heart that strays
you covered the subject from a to z
on all that love could be
but now that we're through
i know there's something that you
forgot to mention to me

   repeat chorus




Hope you enjoy it.
Comments encouraged.
Have at it.

floyd

Hello Floyd,

Great song! Thank you for sharing. I'm impressed with your mix. Your vocals and backing vocals are balanced really nicely with the rest of the tracks.

Exactly

I will add I liked your harmonies also.

Every time you post a song I want to say "this is your best to date". How do you do it? You are a writing machine.

As Josie said "just beautiful"

Floyd,

Very good - the heartache in the lyrics is nicely offset by that very catchy chorus melody.
Great vocal and harmonies... and the crystal clear sound we expect from your work.

A great song Floyd, well scripted, the age old heartache when two drift apart.
Everything was out of the top drawer here. The harmonies spot on, the balances vocal to instruments, was perfect.

Uh, Well, Floyd, I assume you weren't going for Disco or Hip Hop, right?

And it wasn't rock, exactly, so that leaves....

Floyd Jane-Jack of all trades, master of ALL!! How's that for a turn of phrase? This is GREAT!!! Totally different than what I've heard from Floyd, except the craft which is always there in spades. This is a song that could (and should) traverse many styles. I think of "I could love you like that"-big hit in pop and country. A universal message, so crafted, so pleasant, so catchy. TWO big thumbs up (unless you count my big toes!) Another great effort Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Hello, floyd

Very strong song. Your vocal is so professional.
Acoustic Guitar at intro. is so nice.
Little reverb is favorable.
The combination of Drums and Percussion is very pleasant.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
