After watching a documentery on school bullys and bullys in the workplace,this song wrote its self.hope you enjoy

SHE REMEMBERS


SHES READING THOSE WORDS
ON A FLICKERING SCREEN
SOME OF THEM HURTFULL
BUT ALL OF THEM MEAN
AND SHE WONDERS WHAT SHE DID WRONG TODAY

A SECOND GLANCE DOWN A CROWDED HALL
A NO GO SEAT WHEN THE HUNGER CALLED
SHE HAS TO BE STRONG AND SHE HAS TO BE BRAVE

ALONE AGAIN WHEN RECESS HITS
HEAD DEEP IN HER BOOK SO THE LOOKS DONT KILL
THE SALT FALLING FROM HER MISTY CLOUDY EYES

A LONELY RIDE ON A SCHOOL BUS HOME
NO TALKING OR LAUGHING EYES FIXED ON HER PHONE
SHES FEELING LIKE ITS HER TIME TO SAY GOODBYE

SHE TRYS TO SMILE AND TELL HERSELF SOMEDAY
ALL THIS HURT AND THIS PAIN WILL GO AWAY

BUT SHE REMEMBERS
WHEN SHES LAYING THERE IN THE DARK
THE HURT OF A WOUNDED HEART
HOW CRUEL LIFE IS SOMETIMES

BUT SHE REMEMBERS
THE PAIN HER HEART WENT THROUGH
JUST PRAYING ON WHAT TO DO
AND FIGHTING BACK THE TEARS

SHES IN A BETTER PLACE AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS
BUT ONE THING IS OH SO CLEAR
SHE REMEMBERS


SHE SEES THAT LITTLE GIRL AT THE BACK OF THE CLASS
HEAD HELD LOW REMINDER OF THE PAST
DEEP IN HER OWN LITTLE WORLD OF PAIN AND SORROW

AS THE LUNCH BELL RINGS SHE TAKES HER HAND
SAYS IT WILL ALRIGHT I UNDERSTAND
IVE BEEN THERE TO BUT BELEIVE THERES A TOMMOROW

ILL ALWAYS GONNA BE RIGHT HERE FOR YOU
YOUR STRENTGH MY LOVE WILL SEE YOU THROUGH


NOW SHE REMEMBERS
WHEN SHES LAYING THERE IN THE DARK
NOW THERES HURT WITHIN HER HEART
HOW BEAUTIFULL LIFE IS SOMETIMES

NOW SHE REMEMBERS
JUST WHAT LOVE AND FAITH CAN DO
BELEIVING THAT DREAMS COME TRUE
AND THANKING THE MAN UPSTAIRS

SHES IN A BETTER PLACE AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS
SHE S DONE WITH ALL THE CRYING WASTED TEARS
NOW SHE REMEMBERS

SHE REMEMBERS

Hi Brad,

That is a difficult subject to write a song about, but I think you nailed it! There's stuff for a (sad) movie in those lines of lyric.

The song is well-produced as well - I enjoyed my listen throughout the track!

Thanks for sharing!
Will

Steve,

Heartfelt lyrics that resonate, particularly with all we see and read on this topic. Nice melody to go with and solid production choices. Perhaps go a little stronger with the harmonies in the chorus? Maybe—something to think about if you plan on doing more tweaking. Enjoyed the listen!

All the best,

Deej

Wow - very powerful and appropriately executed. There's sincerity in every aspect of this tune, and you can can feel that it comes from the heart. Very compassionate and some incredibly memorable melodies throughout too.

Wouldn't change a thing - great work and thanks for sharing smile

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

Written with emotion and performed with emotion.

The lyric is excellent and brings more attention to a subject that is at last gaining some attention.

Nice band too!

Well done.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
