Tano,

Cool sound. Great tracks, well mixed. And an interesting idea/lyric. There are a number of places in the lyric where there are words that you could "drop" without changing the meaning at all - and make the lyric "sing" more. Since you did not post a lyric, it's hard to remember exactly where/what they were...

Thanks Floyd, I agree..I'd like to simplify the lyric in spots, without changing the meaning...I'm sure a fresh pair of eyes can give me some great ideas..thanks for the comments and input!


"Screen Talk"

In the dark of night
I scan the global sea
I'm searching every little moment
In the hopes that I might find someone
Drifting traveler who'll echo me.
--------------------------
Every lonely night
Out on the virtual sea
I'm surfing every little moment
And I hope I can rescue someone--
And that someone can rescue me.
-------------
As I'm cruising in the endless space
Out of darkness pops a friendly face
A gentle smile and velvet hair
Is she really there?
---------------
It's a non-stop flight
To one specific bay
I'm spending every little moment
Where I know I will meet my someone.
Lovely stranger from far away.
--------------
And I find that I'm reaching for her image..I touch it
Nothing there to warm me but the cool of the glass
She knows just what I mean
Smiling there on my screen
But am I falling for a phantom
Tell me she's real.
------------------
Since we started we've been pouring out
'Cross the lines we feel each other out
But then I have to I stop and stare
Is she really there?
----------
In the dark of night
I dash across the sea
I'm loving every little moment
To the arms of my special someone.
Phantom lover who echoes me.
------------------
And I find that I'm reaching for her image..I touch it
Nothing there to warm me but the cool of the glass
Really like what I've seen
Chatting there on the screen
But am I falling for a phantom
Tell me she's real.
------------------------------
To the arms of my special someone.
Phantom lover who echoes me.
(repeat)

Tano,

Very cool song. Agree if you drop some of the extra words that would really enhance the overall feel. Nice job.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
