  • Is there something you’d like me to write a song about? I love writing story songs and researching a topic like I do for my own songs. Folks have asked me to write songs to mark milestone birthdays and even for the first dance at their weddings.

    This song could be personal or community based. Whatever the brief a song can be a strong vehicle for a message, and I'd love to write it.

about

REMIND ME

Completing The Artist’s Way in 2020 inspired me to remember the huge value of self-care. That became even more important during the lockdown - that need to maintain self-respect and not let things slide. This song is all about the vital, but the sometimes unappreciated, gift of that.

Dan Whitehouse

lyrics

V1
Would you remind me of the cost?
だいしょうをおもいださせてください
Daishou o omoidasasete kudasai

Why would I take from you,
なぜあなたからとるのですか
Naze anatakara toruno desuka

when I’m lost.
わたしがまいごになったとき
Watashiga maigoni nattatoki

Spinning blindly nowhere to aim,
どこにもねらいをさだめず,もうもくにかいてんし
Dokonimo neraio sadamezu, moumokuni kaitenshi

Why would I let you fall.
なぜあなたをらくたんさせますか
Naze anatao rakutan sasemasuka


Chorus
The sorrow, like a fountain
ふんすいのようなかなしみ
Hunsuinoyouna kanashimi

Builds within me, no one’s counting わたしのなかでこうちくし,だれもかぞえません Watashinonakade kouchikushi, daremo kazoemasen

As it breaks me into pieces, それがわたしをバラバラにするので Sorega watashio barabarani surunode

A glance in your mind’s eye (but a flicker) あなたのこころのめでいちべつする(しかしちらつき) Anatano kokoronomede ichibetsu suru (sikashi tiratsuki)
Remind me to turn, and let you in. ふりかえって、あなたをうけいれてください Furikaette, anatao ukeirete kudasai


V2
I felt it briefly. Happiness, それをすこしかんじ,しあわせ, Soreo sukoshi kanji, shiawase,

subtle warmth, びみょうなあたたかさ、 Bimyouna atatakasa

passed through the hairs on my neck. わたしのくびにあるかみのけをとおりぬけた. Watashino kubiniaru kaminokeo toorinuketa

under wraps ラップのしたを Rappuno shitao

life in a box はこのなかのせいかつ Hakononakano seikatsu

Compressed and contained in files we’ll wish we lost あっぱくされ,うしなわれたいファイルにふくまれている Appakusare, ushinawaretai fairuni fukumareteiru


Chorus
The sorrow, like a fountain ふんすいのようなかなしみ Hunsuinoyouna kanashimi

Builds within me, no one’s counting わたしのなかでこうちくし,だれもかぞえません Watashinonakade kouchikushi, daremo kazoemasen

As it breaks me into pieces, それがわたしをバラバラにするので Sorega watashio barabarani surunode

A glance in your mind’s eye (but a flicker) あなたのこころのめでいちべつする(しかしちらつき) Anatano kokoronomede ichibetsu suru (sikashi tiratsuki)

Remind me to turn, and let you in. ふりかえって、あなたをうけいれてください Furikaette, anatao ukeirete kudasai

Remind me to love my sleep
わたしのすいみんをあいするように わたしにおもいださせてください Watashino suimino aisuruyouni watashini omoidasasete kudasai

Remind me to bury my demons わたしのあくまをうめるようにわたしにおもいださせてください Watashino akumao umeruyouni watashini omoidasasete kudasai

Remind me to feel your heat あなたのこころをかんじるようにわたしにおもいださせてください Anatano kokoro o kanjiruyouni watashini omoidasasete kudasai
