Lyrics

Re-member
Put back together
Remember
Remember who you are 

Sometimes we forget
Or the world demands we do
But you still have time yet
So do what you must do 

If you do forget
As we’re bound to do
Take up your regret
And put it past you 

Refrain

The body doesn’t lie
On this you can depend
Listen to its cry
And you’ll be on the mend 

Once you hear its cry
It will be your friend
Breathe with you a sigh
Be with you to the end

Refrain

Re-member who you are
Remember who  

Bring your fingers
Bring your toes
Don’t forget to bring your nose
Who you are I can’t suppose
So remember who you are 

Bring your feet
Bring your heels, too
Bring your heart
Now we’re almost through
With a head on your shoulders you
Should remember who you are 

Remember who you are
Remember who you are
Remember who you are 


Story

We need all of ourselves to be ourselves and sometimes feel detached body and soul. I pictured us as poor stick figures that had fallen apart. (Can someone make me a video of this?!) I especially love hearing Mike’s voice on this—his singing is such an inspiration to me and needed harmonic on this song. Band demanded calypso beat so don’t blame me if you don’t like it—just let go and re-member. (P.S. Don't give up. This was take 12.)
