I gave you wild flowers
It was all I could afford
He had roses by the dozen
Delivered to your door
He bought you steak and lobster
When he took you out to eat
Best I could do was coffee
at the diner down the street

He took you to the opera
You had champagne and caviar
I walked you to the local park
Played you songs on my guitar
He bought you diamond earrings
And he took you on a cruise
I didn't have such things to offer
had nothing left to loose

He wore you on his arm
just like that Rolex on his wrist
He had artificial charm
And predatory gifts
I waited on the sidelines
In hopes you'd understand
That treasure ain't the way to measure
What's inside a man

Now years are passed behind us
We've seen poverty and wealth
We've cherished and we've loved
Through both our sickness and our health
We've had and held each other
Through the good times and the bad
You have given more to me
Than I ever thought I'd have.

Yeah I was just a poor boy
But you looked down deep inside
And saw the love and adoration
that I couldn't hide
You said a love like mine is hard to find
You gotta' grab it while you can
Cause treasure ain't the way to measure
What's inside a man

hello Redeye ...

Another really nice song. You have a good way with words and a very authentic voice. You don't weigh your songs down with unnecessary tracks, but always have everything you need. Your arrangements are superb.

If I may, one suggestion: I don't think the title "Wild Flowers" embraces the full identity of your lyric. For me, "What's Inside A Man" fully embraces the message and character of your lyric. But it's your song and you should go with what you feel is right. It's just an opinion. Please feel free to ignore!

Regardless of the title, this is a wonderful song. Loved it!

Take care ...

Thanks Alan.

I originally titled this "Treasure Ain't the Measure". I later changed it to be more "concise".

FWIW you are not the only person that has suggested the title doesn't reflect the song.

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.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

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."
