Amy Macdonald's sad but beautiful song "Left that body long ago" about the death of a loved one with dementia reduced me to tears even before my mum started to show signs. Poignant, heartbreaking written about her nana.

Left That Body Long Ago​

Amy Macdonald
Oh my dance is getting slower now
'Cause my years they're getting older now
And my eyes, they won't cry
My tears have all run dry
And my memory doesn't get me very far
I can't remember my name
Or exactly who you are
And I don't know why
No I don't know why
Will you please believe
I'm not the person you see
I left that body long ago
I left it way back there
Will you please believe
Given all that you see
I left that body long ago
But somehow nobody knows
So goodbye
You were my world and my life
And I don't know why you've
Lost your mother, lost your wife
But there's more
Something more than meets the eye
This is not the end
This is only goodbye
Will you please believe
I'm not the person you see
I left that body long ago
I left it way back there
Now I'm free, I'm as happy as can be
I just wanted you to know that
I left that body long ago
So long ago
