I Will Remind You

MUSIC VIDEO:

A deep promise to be there for an Alzheimer's parent, this heartwarming song was written as a tribute to families facing dementia.





Vocalist/musician/arranger Brian Asselin and musician/producer Eric Disero -- two close friends -- write the story of a mother with Alzheimer's and her grown son's promise to "always be there to hold your hand like you've always been for me". The song adds the comforting reassurance, "I can be your memory".

LYRICS

'I Will Remind You'
by Brian Asselin and Eric Disero

    I see you staring out your window
    Searching for your past
    A lifetime full of memories
    Slipping through your grasp
    You see those pictures on the mantel
    Tell the story of your life
    A glimpse into your history
    Of days long passed by

When the photos start to fade
When the memories slip away,
It's a struggle everyday
I will remind you

When you look at me and say
You see a face without a name,
Perfect strangers in the frames
I will remind you

    You see that picture taken long ago
    Of a boy who's three
    Blowinʼ out his candles
    Sittinʼ on your knee
    Now that child is all grown up, now
    Yes that boy is me
    Iʼm standing right beside you
    Where I want to be

When the photos start to fade
When the memories slip away
It's a struggle everyday
I will remind you

When you look at me and say
You see a face without a name
Perfect strangers in the frames
I will remind you

    I will always be there to hold your hand
    Like youʼve always been for me
    And together we can beat this in the end
    ʻCause I can be your memory

    Even when the darkest clouds pass by
    Youʼll always find there's hope
    Eventually the sun breaks through
    To form a rainbow
    Every day weʼll make new memories
    And add them to this shelf
    Always to remind you
    Youʼre never by yourself

When the photos start to fade
When the memories slip away
It's a struggle everyday
I will remind you.

When you look at me and say
You see a face without a name
Perfect strangers in the frames
I will remind you.

When the photos start to fade
When the memories slip away
It's a struggle everyday
I will remind you.

When you look at me and say
You see a face without a name
Perfect strangers in the frames
I will remind you.
