Lyrics:

Your Kiss Changed Everything

Verse (1)
I stopped believing in love
It’s like some fool just made it up
I built my walls as tall as heaven
Didn’t think I needed anyone

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Verse (2)
We kissed for hours in my truck
Until that morning sun came up
You were everything I wanted
It took one look and I was in love

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Bridge:
Against all odds
Against all my fears
You healed my heart
You dried my tears

Chorus
But I found you in my darkest place
When I thought there was no way
I could ever love
You stole my heart, you were a thief that I needed
Oh I’ll never be the same
Cause your kiss changed everything

Excellent vocal. Very pretty backtrack. I imagined your wife loved this song as well. Well done.

Great lyrics, melody, vocals, feeling, & performance...
Very Garth Brookish type of country style...
It should fit nicely in his repertoire as well in yours...
Good job... I like it!

Verse (1)

"I stopped believing in love
It’s like some fool just made it up
I built my walls as tall as heaven
Didn’t think I needed anyone"

So simple yet says so much. I think that's some really terrific writing. And the rest of the lyric is right there, too. Your vocal sits so perfectly in this song. Your vocal reminds me a little bit of Richie McDonald. Actually it reminds me of him quite a bit.

Loved it! One thing for consideration ... perhaps let that distortion guitar have a louder voice on its short solo. But man, this is just so good!

best to you ...

Alan

Thanks Alan for the feedback and advice on the mix. Being deaf in one ear makes mixing a challenge particularly when panning . I will adjust the volume— very much appreciated.

Well, listen like Brian and mix in mono - it can sound as good as stereo and often more powerful.
Seriously - the stereo mix is pretty good given your circumstance BUT if you centre everything and get your levels right (remember to do the same with any stereo effects), I think this song would shine as brightly. In the mastering stage a good ME will sprinkle a little magic dust with delay/reverb to give it THAT feel.

Wow - what a tune! You did a remarkable job here. You can tell it's from the heart, and your vocals are outstanding. It flows beautifully, and is truly a touching tribute.

You should be really proud of your work on this one - thanks so much for sharing smile

Always touching to read personal backstory behind a song, brings another dimension for the lyrics, I had a tear in my eye already in the chorus. Great story, beautiful melody, emotional vocal delivery. That solo guitar might sound better with bit more breadth and reverb.

Hey Bob, wowzers! The arrangement is a pleasure to listen to and I dig the overall timbres. Adding the fiddle to this is a nice touch. Very captivating lyrics. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! This is a great song and that chorus is so strong.

No need to parse it out...all is good.

Back for another listen....

Nice song, Bob. Nicely produced. The acoustic guitars and piano sound especially good - crisp, clean, clear.

Good mix throughout.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
