There Is A Light

Words and Music By Christina Martin

I asked my love
On the back porch yesterday
What’s the name they call this thing
That drives my thoughts away
It’s not my heart
And I hope that she will stay
It won’t take the man I used to be
The love from you to me

CHORUS:
There is a light
When it turns on there is love
There is a light
Help turn the light on love

Tell the neighbors
Tell the whole community
There may be a time when I am drawn
To wander aimlessly
It’s just the way
Life turned for you and me
But if you can see the love I am
Then I will always be

CHORUS

Bridge
Nobody asked for this
Mother Natures got some nerve
Turn the light on for me Dear
They can disarm some fears
Can’t freeze our bring back years
But we can learn to laugh and love

CHORUS x 4

The Promise

(Christina Martin/Dale Murray)

I know you made her promise
Even though you felt no closeness
You told your daddy you’d look after her
She was his best friend and your mother
I heard you found her a place to live
She never learned to love or how to give
Nice to everyone but you it seems
She is the mystery in all your dreams

You swore you’d take care of her
That you’d never walk away from her
Sometimes the right thing to do
Is not the choice you thought you’d choose
I know you made her a promise

I hear you’re feeling like a monster
I watch you holding on to words and ways
I feel you contemplate your honor
They’re placing judgment from miles away
Your best intentions point right to her
And in the evening there’s no script
You face nighttime like a warrior
You get the stories they all miss

You swore you’d take care of her
That you’d never walk away from her
Sometimes the right thing to do
Is not the choice you thought you’d choose

Time has its own way
Before you can say
Of making you stay
Please don’t hide behind cool judgments
You make your own choices
And shut out small voices
I know you made her a promise

CHORUS x 2

I Will Be Relieved

By Christina Martin

I won’t tell you I’m in pain
They used to blame this on the rain
My consciousness changed suddenly
Please take the time and tell me I will be relieved
There is a veil it’s hanging low
Covering the things I know
Dragging my thoughts cross muddy ground
I wanna feel it lifting and when it does I will be relieved

I will be relieved
Like the Rock Dove I’ll roam free again
You’ll be the one to sort it out
And while your searching please remember to tell me
I will be relieved

I’d like a drink but I won’t ask
Say the words sing prayer for me
Inside the glass frame looking back
There stands a stranger begging you to tell me I will be relieved
You won’t get much from asking me
Turn to my friends and family
They’ll tell you I am not myself
That’s not my mother, those aren’t her eyes, tell me she will be relieved

She will be relieved
Like the Rock Dove she’ll roam free again
You’ll be the one to sort it out
Please tell her she will be relieved
I will be relieved
Like the Rock Dove I’ll roam free again
You’ll be the one to sort it out
And while your searching please remember to tell me and my family
That I will be relieved

A New Place To Call Home

Words and Music by Christina Martin

V1
Walk the shame away
Find a new bridge where the dam broke yesterday
Paint your life across my wall
Leave some time and space to color in the Fall

CH
It’s been some seasons now
By yourself watch them hide
And in the end you’ll find
The shivers, shakes and stones
A new place to call home

V2
Take a moment taste the pain
Your miles disintegrate, and you don’t feel a thing
Hold your head up in the rain
Loosing touch with where you are, and where you’ve been

CH
It’s been some seasons now
By yourself watch them hide
And in the end you’ll find
The shivers, shakes and stones
A new place to call home

V3
Climb that ladder one more day
We’ll make promises to help you on your way
All the things that made you you
Your work, your money, won’t show up or pull your through

Chorus
It’s been some seasons now
By yourself watch them hide
And in the end you’ll find
The shivers, shakes and stones
A new place to call home

Remember Me

Lyrics & Music By Christina Martin and Dale Murray

V1
All of the warm romances
All of your summer dances
I know the places
They still live

Palaces made in foreign lands
I touch your wounded heart
Plenty of tears
In rooms filled with light

Chorus:
Oh sad Day, you’re gonna go away
Come Some Day
The grey and blackened skies will turn blue
And only the love will shine through
There you’ll remember me

V2
Wearing an old red sun hat
We go through photographs
You sing your songs
And tell me tales

There will be fireworks and greed
Things that you never thought you’d do
Things that aren’t you
Don’t be afraid

Chorus:
Oh Sad Day, You’re gonna go away
Dance around the room
See the stranger whose demanding a throne
Where love still shines through
And in this room you’ll remember me

Bridge:
The leaves are not the only things changing
And memories grow nearer day by day
Time will not erase lines where we climbed through

Chorus:
Oh sad day, you’re gonna go away
Come Some Day
When all the dessert skies turn grey
You’ll visit them in blue
And I will see you
And you’ll remember me
And you will shine through
And you’ll remember me
About Album

In January 2014 The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia partnered with singer-songwriter Christina Martin on an exciting new project, Remember Me: Songs and Stories Relating to Dementia. 

Remember Me was developed out of a series of songs written during Christina’s Artist in Residency (2011-2012) with Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, Dalhousie Geriatric Medical Research and the Canadian Dementia Knowledge Translation Network (CDKTN). Five of the songs were recorded in 2013 with award winning producer and musician Dale Murray. 
“I hope these songs provide a way for people to connect and share their own experiences relating to dementia and caring for others.” says Christina. Remember Me won the 2014 Music Nova Scotia Award for Inspirational Recording of the Year.
