Here's my entry for last month's contest. I know the humming is a bit pitchy but any other suggs/comments are welcome https://soundcloud.com/paulcanuck/the-trouble-is The Trouble Is... Alzheimer's is a coward and a thief He runs off with the ones you love, steals their memories And when I visit Dad I see his distant eyes And I know I'm just another face he doesn't recognize He talks to Mom as though she's still around But it's nearly 20 years now since we laid her in the ground He wouldn't be this safe, if he were living on his own But the trouble is.. he thinks he'll soon be home And he talks of how she's waiting for him there With her Mona Lisa smile, And her Judy Garland hair Says she's busy in the kitchen, makin' supper on the stove And the trouble is: he thinks he'll soon be home I'll spare you all the grief of when he died Suffice to say I kissed his cheek goodbye, then I cried I knew that soon I'd lose him, but if the truth were known The trouble is.. Yeah, the trouble is.. I lost him years ago Though it goes against what common sense says happens to our souls The trouble is.. I know he made it home And he held her in his arms when he got there Kissed her Mona Lisa smile, Touched her Judy Garland hair They had supper in the kitchen, got caught up around the stove Oh, it goes against my common sense, I know The trouble is.. The trouble is.. The trouble is.. I know he made it home.
