I Will Stand by You

By David Snyder

V1

Sometimes in life
It’s a fact
The world
turns its back on you
It happens to all of us
Once in a while
It’s just a test that we go through
But if you ask me what I have been taught
If you ask me what my faith has bought
I can tell you that these words are true
It’s the only thing that I know how to do

CH:

I will stand by you
I will stand by you
All the way to the top of the hill
Where the sky has grown dark and still
Where the hillside is littered with nails
And they separate lies from the truth
I will do what I came to do
And I will stand by you

V2

They say I don’t act like a king
But to some people I am everything
I’m the only reason they have to sing
And I’m the reason why their church bells ring
Everybody has their moment of truth
And I’ve never failed to offer the proof
Cause I tell the mountains to move
And no matter what this world will do
I will stand by you

CH:

I will stand by you
I will stand by you
All the way to the top of the hill
Where the sky has grown dark and still
Where the hillside is littered with nails
And they separate lies from the truth
I will do what I came to do
And I will stand by you

Interlude

All the way to the top of the hill
Where the sky has grown dark and still
Where the hillside is littered with nails
And they separate lies from the truth
I will do what I came to do
And I will stand by you
l will stand by you

David,

This is an excellent write.... really excellent. The melody is so strong and it has that all-important feel of familiarity that makes it sit so very comfortably on the ears. This is such a hard thing to accomplish and here you are making it seem so, so easy.

The lyrics in your first verse blew me away. You set the scene incredibly well and brought it to life vividly. The below lyrics grabbed my attention and pulled me into the song. I was hooked after that!

Quote:
Sometimes in life
It’s a fact
The whole world
turns its back on you
It happens to all of us
Once in a while
It’s just a test that we go through

Then, when the chorus came along, the meaning of everything you'd sung so far glistened with crystal clarity. Outstanding. Also, that chorus you've created resonates with strength and might and I found the words became very visual. This was such a good listen!

In a single word....



All the best,
Noel

WOW!!!!!!

Noel pretty much said it all, and summed it up nicely, "Brilliant!".

One of the best songs I've heard in a long time, well done.

What a tune! I'm getting a Tom Petty vibe here, which is always a good thing in my books. It's perfectly catchy, and I found it to sound really sincere and heartfelt. There's some really, really nice lyrics in this too. By the way - the mixing job on this is on point too!

Fantastic job here David, thanks for sharing smile

Hi David,

Simply stunning! As Noel said. So powerful yet so seemingly effortless. The melody makes you think it's something like we had heard before - but really we hadn't. That, my good friend, takes an uncanny talent. it had to first be conceived and then facilitated with equal precision.

Simply wonderful David. Spiritual without ever going there directly. This song should go all the way to the top of hill. I am impressed beyond my ability to further define. And Di and I completely agree with the message.

I was going to tell you all the various things you did in the creation and delivery of this marvelous song. But as i thought what to say, it came to me that I'd already said everything was really important. I'll simply say everything about this sings inception and conception equals the magic of the final product. Di and i are blown away. We both tip our hat to youy.

Excellent. Wow!

Alan & Di

David,

This is just outstanding! This is my favorite of yours. So well written. The message is so true, and awesome. Your vocals are perfect for this song. Has that Dylan/Tom Petty feel, with a heart-piercing delivery of the truth. All on top of a simple, fitting arrangement.

Did I mention, I like this one?

Steve

I think this is a song that all of us can relate to at some point in our lives. It's such a profound song. Your vocals are perfect for this type of song, I think. It suits the kind of raw emotions just lurking under the surface.

Well done, and another great song! smile

David,
Excellent song - lyrically & musically excellent.
The vocal has a mannered/shouty early Dylan delivery which makes sense but seemed a little aggressive.
Top stuff.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
