I first demoed this in July, but after living with it for several months I made a few lyric changes to hopefully make the song stronger. We re-tracked the vocal last week and this is the result. Thanks for listening everyone!

Hi Marvin:

I remember your original version but have no "plain of reference" to compare your lyric changes. Knowing the fantastic writer you are... I'll take your word that you improved it. It is a wonderful song about a terrible malady impacting so many families here and probably around the world. (I'd love to see statistics about how the percentages of Alzheimers impacts different countries or regions.)

Your vocalist did a great job and I believe the song can provide comfort to so many people suffering from the effects of this disease. Thanks for sharing it with us and best of luck in getting it boosted up the ladder of success. ----Dave

It's a beautiful lyric about a very difficult subject. I particularly like:

"She’s the stranger in the mirror
Who combs his hair and helps him dress"

Those lines really hit you in the gut.

Thank you Dave, Gavin, Lane and Barry for listening and commenting. I appreciate your feedback very much. Barry the vocalist is Brent Rader. We have been working together for several years on my demos.
