Singled Out: Not By Sight's Stand

Not By Sight frontwoman Jane Train tells us about the song "Stand", which she co-wrote with Corey Lowery (Dark New Day/Eye Empire) and recorded with him, Troy McLawhorn (Evanescence) and Morgan Rose (Sevendust). Here is the story:

This song is from the first batch of songs that Corey Lowery and I collaborated on. I first wrote the melody and lyrics to the chorus in order to have a destination to get to. Writing doesn't always happen like that, but it did for this. I pictured myself onstage in an arena with the lights low and lighters lit throughout the audience.

The mood that I felt drawn to was a "let's put our problems away and enjoy this night, this music, this concert." More from the audience's perspective, but definitely from my experiences as well which is translated more in the verse lyrics. I relate to the empowerment that music lends when you're going through the worst things in life.

There's a song for everything that happens. So, it's a mix of that and also a statement of, "you tried to tear me down, but you only made me stronger. Here I Stand." Boom.

Gonna light this night underneath the stars
Gonna save every moment so its never too far
If you feel the strike of lightning's hand
Better look all around you cause baby, here I Stand

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the band right here!
