This is a song I wrote for my band "The Wizzards". I recorded it at home (except drums which were recorded at a proffesional studio and mixed at home), and I made a video using some live footage. I hope you like it!

THE ARTIST

She was a teenage girl
Nobody knew her name
She didn’t talk too much
But when she was up there
Performing on the stage
The lights would make her shine

She wasn’t good at school
Her mind was always full
Of music, words and dance
When she rehearsed at home
No teachers were allowed
She taught herself her craft

I know that
She’s got the heart of an artist
All her dreams are waiting inside
But the doors are closed
And talent’s not enough
I can swear
She’s got the heart of an artist
She can be so magic on stage
But they’re blind and deaf
and never give a chance
She wrote a dozen songs
She sang them to her boy
For him she’s number one
When she performed two nights
In front of twenty fans
She didn’t lose her smile

She tried the internet
Her face was everywhere
With thousand faces more
She got a boring job
She never was at home
But never would give up

I know that
She’s got the heart of an artist
All her dreams are waiting inside
But the doors are closed
And talent’s not enough
I can swear
She’s got the heart of an artist
She can be so magic on stage
But they’re blind and deaf
and never give a chance
She’s singing twice a week
For thirty bucks and tips
The stage is rather small
But she gives everything
And she pretends she is
At Royal Albert Hall

They told her “leave your dream”
It doesn’t pay the bills
But there’s no sense in life
expending every day
as if you were in jail
Your wings are meant to fly

I know that
She’s got the heart of an artist
All her dreams are waiting inside
But the doors are closed
And talent’s not enough
I can swear
She’s got the heart of an artist
She can be so magic on stage
But they’re blind and deaf
and never give a chance

Maybe one day fame is coming
A million people thinking
That she’s the biggest star

She just needs to make a living
And touch the people's feelings
No matter where they are


I know that
She’s got the heart of an artist
All her dreams are waiting inside
But the doors are closed
And talent’s not enough
I can swear
She’s got the heart of an artist
She can be so magic on stage
But they’re blind and deaf
and never give a chance

Ooh… No they never would give me a chance...

That's wonderful! A great professional sound and a marvelous song. Really sums up the struggle to become a professional musical artist.

Well done!

This is good great performance all round, just a suggestion, i would shorten some of the lyric lines to give the singer more control for her vocals, she is really good but at times it sounded like she was trying to keep up with the music.

Nice one good luck with this :cool:
