Story

A portrait of dementia and living in the moment. This song was inspired by witnessing my mother's journey with Alzheimers and her progressive memory loss. Warm, intimate, emotive.

Lyrics

Gone   © Ann Leung

Do you remember when,
The band played our song?
‘n we talked til dawn
You and I facing the sun.

 And we were …Gone, gone, gone, gone.

 The weather is nice, dear.
Magnolias cup the breeze.
Shall we walk by the river,
You and I?

 The kettle is still warm.
The kids still sleep.
I’llbe dressed by six.
Shall I bring milk home, tonight?

 And I’ll be …Gone, gone, gone, gone.

 The sun is shining

Birds are calling
Calling calling

 You take milk, but no sugar.
I’ll find your favourite mug.
Shall we fold clothes today?
It’s what you did when you remembered my name

 But now you’re… Gone, gone, gone, gone.

 The weather is nice, dear.
Magnolias cup the breeze.
Shall we walk by the river,
You and I?
Shall we go?
