Waiting for the sun

Deep down below,
I believe we could grow.
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

We push through,
do what we can do
to overcome...

...what has to be done,
sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun.
Oh, to overcome,
what has to be done,
sometimes you better run...

High above the sky,
I believe we could rise,
If you could only let me show.
If you could only let me show.

Key=Eb , Tempo 130, Length (m:s)=4:09

oooh! This is really nice. Great vocal. nice and bright and up front.

Nice placement of the harmony just to the left side.
Makes for great clarity and definition.


I really like that way this part sounds.

"sometimes you better run,
waiting for the sun."

Nice work. I like the folk groove. Harmony is superbly done.

What's not to like?

Hey, this is a nice production. Sounds really good on the monitors. Good RT choice and the drums sound good...nice snare pop.

Cool contemplative lyric delivered with some up front (in a good way) and soulful vocals.

We like!!!

You're making music at a very high level, and it's a pleasure to listen to. I wish I could sing and make music this good. The lyrics are okay, but still the Achilles heel for me. Maybe it's not a big deal, I tend to weight lyrics higher than most people do.

Classic folk mood, but with full rich modern sound and great vocals. Very enjoyable backing vocals also. I like how the fiddle and the vocals resonate together.

That's a very nice song, Rebecca!
The vocals are very pleasant as is the melody of the song.
And I do like that violin in it. It is subtle, but present!

This sounds professional on all levels - excellent work.

The singing and arrangement are top-notch.

But - and I say this with some hesitation - for me there's something about the mix that makes the vocals a strident and hard to listen to. I'm glad others disagree with me. smile

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

Hey Janice and Bud,

Yes, you are right, we took your advice in putting the vocals more up front you suggested for the song " let go ".

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
