WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

DONT WANNA FEEL

WANNA HEAR YOU SAY THAT IM THE ONE
JUST LIKE YOU DID
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG


WHEN WERE YOUNG THE WORLD TURNED SLOW
MORE GIVE THAN TAKE IN THAT ERA SO
MORE PEACE AND I LOVE YOU'S
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
THOUGHT WEVE NEVER GROW OLD
NOW YOU DONT LIKE THE COLD SO
REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE YOUNG


DONT WANNA CRY ABOUT THE CHILDREN GONE
WANNA WAKE UP HERE WHERE WE BELONG
JUST LIKE WE THOUGHT WE WOULD
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

DONT WANNA SEE THAT TIME HAS FLOWN SO FAST
WANNA SLOW DOWN THE SAND IN THAT GLASS
WHERE DID IT ALL GO
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG


WHEN WERE YOUNG THE WORLD TURNED SLOW
MORE GIVE THAN TAKE IN THAT ERA SO
MORE PEACE AND I LOVE YOU'S
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
SAID WEVE NEVER GROW OLD
NOW YOU DONT LIKE THE COLD WIND
SO REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE YOUNG

DONT WANNA EVER HAVE TO SAY GOODBYE
TO THE ONE I LOVED ALL MY LIFE
WANNA WAIT FOR YOU AT THOSE GATES
WHEN MY TIME COMES

What a tender but sad song. I think you did a really great job on this one and I enjoyed your use of the RealTracks.

WOW This is one great song that most all of us old pharts can relate! I loved the lyrics and your vocals. Your backing tracks were spot on.

To nitpick I thought that you have too much echo on those harmonies and that made it hard to understand the words. I would cut way back on them but, as always, this is just my opinion and others may or may not agree.

Regardless this is an excellent song.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Agree with Mario on everything. Super song, great hook, great arrangement but the vocals may be a bit overproduced for the intimate style and lyric. Really, really nice job!! Take care. Greg

I had exactly the same thoughts as Mario. Great write, excellent singing, nice production. smile

But... the echo on the voice made a lot of the lyrics unintelligible, which is a shame because you've got some awesome lyrics there. cry

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Enjoyed this, so obviously sincerely heart-felt. Agree with the constructive comments above. I liked the more tender vocal style on the last verse. Excellent addition to the forum!

What a tune! Very sincere and heart felt, and I'm loving the old school country vibes here. Your vocal performance is top notch, and a wonderful throwback to the country music of the 70's. That aside, the subject matter is very relatable and your vocal delivery only lends merit to that.

Great work on this one, and thanks for sharing smile

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
