The Space Between Your Heartbeats

when the space between your heartbeats has grown
across your face moonlight ripples
from a stone in darkness thrown
little one lay down your fear
if you cry how will you hear
the song I`m singing near
among swaying trees where I`ll have flown
when the space between your heartbeats has grown

bound away on the sea of your repose
as the sail of your soul unfurls
and your eyelids close
little one I`m still your friend
standing here at land`s end
I`ll turn your ship to catch the wind
tomorrow I`ll wait for you to show
all you`ve found on the sea of your repose

out on night seas
stars grow from trees
in your hat to wear
fisher of dreams
cast your net
into the air

when the space between your heartbeats has grown
across your face moonlight ripples
from a stone in darkness thrown
little one lay down your fear
if you cry how will you hear
the song I`m singing near
among swaying trees where I`ll have flown
when the space between your heartbeats has grown

Scoot & Robert,

This is a beautiful song. Such a "gentle" lyric. The stuff of lullabies..

A nice backing track. The lead/fill guitar fits so well. And an excellent tender vocal.

A good write. Well done.

Wow - you made something beautiful guys smile The textures of this tune are so silky and smooth. The subtle harmonies in the background pair with the quiet guitar perfectly. It has a very lullaby-esque quality to it. The slow build up wasn't expected too - when the strings started pulsing in and out I was sold.

You should be really proud of this one. Thanks for sharing guys!

Moves along like a gentle stream.

This really showcases some of the best of you two.

Melancholy yet ultimately up lifting. There is a lot to contemplate in the lyric.

We listened twice and then read the lyric several times. "Sail of your soul unfurls," the hook and so much more work so well to tell the spiritual journey.

Superb!

Hearing Scott`s melody on his demo I was surprised how close it sounded to a lullaby I`d written long ago, and with hardly any changes it fit; nice serendipity that!

Thanks so much Bob. It just amazes me that I can send a track to Robert and he reaches into his archives and pulls out a lyric that just fits perfectly with the track. And what a cool vocal

Thanks for the kind words Mario they are appreciated. Glad you mentioned the mix. It took quite a bit of tweaking from Robert and I as it was so different between the headphones, computer and cell phone.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
