LYRICS

It’s Just A Matter Of Time

Time, it's just a matter of time
Before the gambler loses all on the roll of a dice
Time, it's just a matter of time
Till the river of love becomes just a river of ice

And time, it's just a matter of time
Till the green leaf withers and takes on shades of brown
Time, it's just a matter of time
Before this old world stops spinning round and round

I've heard it called 'the game of love'
but no one knows the rules
Or we're sailing off to someplace on a crazy ship of fools
Without a chart or compass we're steering by the stars
But when we reach our destination
we don't know where are


INSTRUMENTAL

Time, it's just a matter of time
Before the gambler loses all on the roll of a dice
Time, it's just a matter of time
Till the river of love becomes just a river of ice

Time, it's just a matter of time
Till the green leaf withers and takes on shades of brown
Time, it's just a matter of time
Before this old world stops spinning round and round

Nice relaxing track with excellent vocals and a smooth attack. Enjoyed my listen. I do think you could have come up a bit tad on the vocals but that's just me nit picking which I don't usually do :-)

Thanks, Henry. The vocal level seemed spot on through the headphones but I must admit they lost prominence through the larger sound system. I might add another db or 2. smile

Relaxing soft rock song, beautiful simple melody and lyrics with a pinch of nice melancholy. Nice arrangement, I especially like the solo guitarist. Pleasant vocals.

Thanks Janne.
I auditioned about 4 or 5 BIAB soloist guitars before I settled on 2604.

Thank you, Captain.

I must say, it was one of my most enjoyable composition experiences. It started late on last Friday afternoon. I was pumped after returning from a 1-hour instrumental performance before an audience of enthusiastic aged-care residents.
I opened up BIAB, picked out a style, and started typing up a chord progression. I worked on that for two days and was about to record the guitar melody when I changed my mind and started to work on some lyrics instead. Come Monday afternoon it was done.

Brian, this is your best to date IMHO.

Nice chord progression supporting a fantastic vocal! Great harmonies.

That B3 was the icing on the cake. Super instrumentation and mix.

Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

"Time, it's just a matter of time
Before the gambler loses all on the roll of a dice
Time, it's just a matter of time
Till the river of love becomes just a river of ice"

Nice write that was engaging from the get go.

Janice mentioned a Jim Croce feel.

Your pleasant smooth vocal delivery worked really well with this.

And you wrapped it all in a nice BiaB session group and mix.

Thanks J&B. I have tweaked it a little since posting it on Soundcloud, making some of the words clearer in the recording and improving the timing and mix. If I'm honest, everything I've done is actually "a work in progress" and no two live performances are exactly the same.

And mixing is never finished ... just abandoned. smile

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
