I just spent 4 hours making a song and when I saved the song the files all vanished, is there a way I can get these files back?

Not enough information for us to do anything with this report.
Also, you are using an old version of Audacity. The current version is 2.3.0 and is available via the Audacity website: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/
I’ve just found your other post, so I have merged the topics as I presume that they are both about the same issue (?)
The problem sounds like this bug: https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/important-bug-fix/48358/1
The bug has been fixed in the current version of Audacity, but unfortunately, projects that were damaged by this bug cannot be fixed. The overwritten data is gone forever.
