THE SUN WILL SHINE AGAIN

This song was created after a tragic accident from 2019 in which a little boy lost his life.
It is intended to give hope and courage to all those who also suffer a serious loss in their lives out of nowhere.
It would be very nice if this song could do this at least a little.


I hope you like it
Many greetings
Andi ;-)


Listen to THE SUN WILL SHINE AGAIN


one moment under a clear blue sky
can change your life you don't know why
but from now on nothing is the same anymore

the darkness lies over your heart
the fate is playing the last card
and from now you see your love nevermore

but all your love and faith
will help you to find your new way
and your love lives forever in your heart

after the storm and the rain
the sun will shine again
and the time can heal the pain

after the storm and the rain
the sun will shine again
and the time can heal the pain

so many tears flow to the earth
i couldn't protect you it's the worst
but the fate had something else for you

remember the time before the storm
so many moments since your love was born
Moments when the light shines through

Hi, Andi.

It's nice to hear someone doing something with the synth/dance tracks, and you do it well.

Upbeat pop, despite the subject matter. Good arrangement and mix. Good vocals as well.

One minor suggestion - you might want to watch your /th/s at the start of "the". Occasionally it comes out as /z/.

Catchy song!

A sad but positive tale inside music with a big beat.
Well arranged and a decent melody too.
There're a couple of spots where the pronunciation is "European". Your voice and phrasing remind me of the singer from Scorpions in their late 70s prime.

There're a few things in the lyric that I'd tweak:
The use of NOW doesn't directly relate to the ambiguous time frame of the 1st stanza. Oddly, using THEN applies to the moment, (past, present or future), and side steps being locked in one tense.
You've used THE before time, fate and a couple of other things. In most instances it's redundant but doesn't do any harm.

one moment under a clear blue sky
can change your life you don't know why
but from THEN on nothing is the same any more

Darkness lies over your heart
Fate is playing the last card
and from THEN you see your love nevermore

but all your love and faith
will help you to find your new way
and your love lives forever in your heart

after the storm and the rain
the sun will shine again
and time can heal the pain

after the storm and the rain
the sun will shine again
and time can heal the pain

so many tears flow to the earth
i couldn't protect you it's the worst
(I couldn't protect you, but, for what it's worth)
fate HAS something else for you

remember the time before the storm
so many moments since your love was born
Moments when the light shines through

Hi Andi,

Very impressive piece of music! I like the arrangement and the groove.

Excellent songwriting, hard to do with such a delicate subject, but you did it well.

Also, as David said, it's nice to hear someone use the synth/dance tracks, we don't hear that too often on the forum.

Well done!

Great passion in your vocal, Andi. A sad story with a positive outlook. I like that you concentrate on the Sun shining again instead of dwelling in the darkness. Quite an interesting production with much to listen to, and the message comes through loud and clear.

Andi, it's great that you thought enough to do a song to reach out to someone in pain! That's the wonder and magic of music, it can speak to someone no matter what style or genre it's produced in! You always do a nice job! Thanks, Torrey.

Good lyrics about sad subject but with positive sing-a-long feeling. Good powerful beat and quite catchy chorus. Nice to hear some synth RTs together with one of my favorite guitars #3724.

Andi,

Good Music! Tough subject, handled well.

I like your vocal. It is passionate. Nicely recorded and processed. Sits in the mix really well.

Good choice of RTs. As others have said - nice to hear these used for a change. Good mix.

After a couple of listens, the song becomes very catchy.

Well done.

I like this but in a different way perhaps. The singing and production and choice of tracks is nice and well done. What kinda threw me off a bit was the dark topic paired with an uptempo kind of dance beat. It didn't quite fit the expectations I was looking for but hey.... that's what music is supposed to do from time to time right? Take us unawares and unexpected. On that account, it succeeded.

I had the same reaction as Herb, there was a bit of a disconnect between the brightness of the music and the subject matter. But if one only listens to the lyrics and doesn't read your preface, it works just fine.

Everything about this was well done. As they say across the pond: Chapeau!

Well produced and different to what we hear usually on the forum.

A nice big sound and a good performance.

Good stuff.

It's such a sad topic but with a Euro Techno beat. Interesting. It works and that's all that counts. Good one.

Very actual in our country at the moment.
A well-known football player, who was drunk and drove over 125 miles an hour, caused a car accident. Both parents wounded and their 4-year old son was killed.
So, the song touched us.
