About This Song


I am posting this song as a testament to the value of feedback. After first posting this song in June of 2017 I received feedback from Brent Baxter. Brent suggested changing one word in the chorus. It was a lyric change I had debated with myself on while writing the song, but Brent's suggestion reaffirmed that it was the right thing to do. I re-demoed the song last November, and this is the result. I believe Brent's suggestion made it a stronger song. We are currently tracking a female demo that I will post when we get it done. Thanks Brent, and thanks Frettie!

Hi Marvin,

thank you for sharing this song. I guess a lot of people know someone with Alzheimer disease or dementia and can relate to what you are telling us. I wonder if it is too sad? It has a bitter taste.

They’ve shared a life he can’t remember
They’ve shared a life she can’t forget
She’s the stranger in the mirror
Who combs his hair and helps him dress

They started young raisin’ a family
Seldom took time for themselves
Had a closeness most can only dream
Through rich or poor, sickness and health

Before his memory of their history
Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past
Like broken glass

He used to joke “I don’t remember squat”
She’d just say “You work too hard”
Now lost among his scattered thoughts
He still holds her in his arms

Before his memory of their history
Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past
Like broken glass

He’ll always be - the husband that she loves
She’ll always see - the father that he was

Before his memory of their history
Was shattered like a mirror into pieces of their past
Like broken glass
