Forever
© 2019 Kenny Leverett

Night sky clouds are movin’
And it sure feels like rain
You lie so close that I can hear your heartbeat
And I wanna remain
Forever by your side forever

Angels looked down on me
And smiled
You found me
And opened my heart wide

Morning slips thru the curtains
And the sun shines again
Maybe the world can go on without us
Every now and then
Or in my dreams forever
I’m in your arms forever

Evening sun is sinking
Now there’s no sign of rain
You’ve made a home my heart can handle
And I want to remain
Forever

Kenny,

Another masterpiece... incredible songwriting. I just love what you are doing these days...

The vocals and production are top notch - none better.

This song should close "Side A" on your album... smile

Wow - what a tune! Love the slow, intense groove on this. It flows beautifully and your vocals soar over the backing tracks beautifully. You really displayed a strong understanding of songwriting on this one.

Great work and thanks for sharing smile

Strong, sincere, emotional, real...
Love the lyrics like...
"Maybe the world can go on without us... Every now and then
Or in my dreams forever... I’m in your arms forever"
Excellent images lyrically framed & held together with a simple "Or"
Another good work, Kenny...
I enjoyed it!

You've got some lyrical nuggets here, like "Angels looked down on me/And smiled," and "Morning slips thru the curtains." Good choices on the instrumentation--works well for you melody and content.

Kenny,

The guitars on your songs are always so crisp and compelling. They really accentuate this song. Really solid in all respects—heartfelt, engaging vocal. Love the lead guitar solo. Killer stuff, Kenny.

My best to you,

Deej

Hi Kenny ...

I think everything has already been said that crossed my mind and treated my ears. You have a special touch that most dson't have. you are just so good. Talk about a passionate vocal ... this is it.

Keep churning out these nuggets ... i can't wait to click onto a new Kenny L tune. Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Hey Kenny!

Super clean tune! Very atmospheric and different from others of yours. Instrument line up suits this ballad perfectly. I think, if you will compile an album, this is a great song to "relax" ear of the listener, before more aggressive stuff smile

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Love that line too.

That intro lead guitar seems a bit out place to me. Too dry maybe. Later on it all blends perfectly. Great sounding drums and bass. Your vocal really shines.

This is one of those songs that you just fall into as it plays. Well done!

Yet another facet of your vocal prowess - the power ballad!!

Heck, if you’re gonna write a great lyric you might as well sing it with passion smile

And you did.

Great band...that bass is killer

Janice here:

As a true romantic I LOVE your lyric, Kenny, and your vocals and band are perfect. There are many mornings when the sun comes through our windows that I have those thoughts of “can’t we stay here forever and let the world go on without us for a little while?!” Soulful and sweet.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
