July 2010, Barbara Lee George and Even Steven Levee, her bassist and musical producer completed their latest CD project "Protected By Love". This CD is simply a work of art - from its completely original 10 tracks of hit, after hit (in every genre) to its stunning original cover art, contributed by the internationally renowned contemporary cubistic artist, Yuroz. Barbara's taste in art is unquestionable and it is apparent that her lifetime’s exposure to brilliant musicianship guided her in forming this group. Barbara's Band is a musical tour de force that begs to be heard live!

Ring around the rosie, pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes
Young too young, Young too young…
A folded flag and still more soldiers have to fight
You pray dear God protect each one throughout the night
A hopeless face becomes the one you start to know
And you’re left asking why we ever have to go
Young too young, too young to die… Young too young, too young to die
You were meant for love but off to war you were sent
Thou shall not is just a rule the powers bent
Can we fuel peace or must a war always be fed
For those we’ve lost there are no words that can be said but…
Young too young, too young to die… Young too young, too young to die
Our sons and daughter are the ones we send to go
Without a chance to dance, to love and to grow
What do we offer? Can’t give them back their time…
A special place in Heaven for the victims of these crimes
War, the penalty for lost humanity
War, a crime, a debt, a price that’s paid by you and me
War, to abide in peace is really not all that tough
War, if we the people just declare enough’s enough
You’re young too young, too young to die …You’re young too young, too young to die… Ashes, ashes…
