Lyrics
Blue Guitar

some say the moon
is prisoner of the sun
I still turn for you
the waterwheel drinks
while its spun

if there is no ship to see
in passing morning clouds
why do we cling to dreams
like sailors
in the shrouds

I cannot play things as they are
in the sky I hear a blue guitar

as long as I am spared
strumming colours bending light
sing the rainbow in curved air
the orchestra
of birds takes flight

play the bells in the rain
a note for joy key for pain
a song beyond sane

I cannot play things as they are
in the sky I hear a blue guitar
in the sky I hear a blue guitar

© Robert Cordrey June 2019

Scott, you and Robert have a great signature sound! Really unique but musically compelling and never boring. Everything sounds great, with solid instrument choices and clear production. Especially strong vocals and guitar accents. Super job again!

Hi Scott and Robert,
Splendid video with very pleasant music. I enjoyed the guitar solo with its effects. And Robert's chorus well done.

Fabulous production. Love your guitar work on this, Scott. Robert is really good at those videos, and of course the lyrics and vocals with harmony really elevate the appeal. Spirit Level soars.


Enjoy whatever happens!

I'm running out of things to say! But this is a great track with ace instrumentation, plus that guitar work is superb. Good video, too.

Hi Scott and Robert.

Congratulations on a terrific presentation.
The song, its arrangement and the mix are all excellent.
Everything about it mesmermised me.
Scott: As always, your guitar work was superb.
Robert: Your song, its music and lyrics and your performance really captured my imagination and took me down a road of highly entertaining creativity.
The video was superb. I haven't heard of Leonardo.ai or Kyber.ai and I was very impressed how you used them.

You've got my enthusiastic round of applause!
--Noel

Well, your guitar steals the show, Scott, as it is lovely!

The melancholy lyric fits Robert’s vocals well.
These lines especially got our attention:

“if there is no ship to see
in passing morning clouds
why do we cling to dreams
like sailors in the shrouds”

That’s another cool AI vid too and your mix and master are ace!

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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.
