For some reason, even with code that I know passes, the test will run and say "no such table: songs_performer'.

Like I said, I know my code is good, as I compared it to somebody else's and it was pretty much the same. In fact, when I tried their code, I got the same error. Does anybody know why this could be or should I just start a new workspace from scratch and try it that way?

If you post your code and the challenge's text that I can definitely help you.
