about

The only rock song that I'm aware of about the pain and horror of Alzheimer's Disease - and escape from it. Written about an imagined conversation with a suffering loved one. This song is dedicated to the memory of Breda Mahony.

lyrics

I don’t need us to talk
Talk never fixed anything
I would rather just walk away
From the news that they bring

It was never a fault
That I ever thought you could have
Always making me cry
When all I need is to laugh

There’s a man in the room
But I don’t know who he is
He’s been changing his tune
But have I made him like this

I can’t give what you want
And you can’t be what I need
You’re trying to teach me to write it down
When I don’t know to read

There’s a time and a place
But I can’t find my way back inside
Read the message that’s etched upon my face
It’s a sign of the turning tide

Some say that there’s no over
That there’s only begun
Like a voice screaming clear in your head
Singing “You’re better off dead”
You’ll know when the right moment comes

Yeah you’ll know when the right moment comes
