When You Were Superman

Superman animation
ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO: Watch this uplifting-yet-real, brilliantly-animated music video about a child's heroic relationship with his parent with dementia. (Video)

Lyrics:

When I was a kid and you were Superman
There was nothing you couldn't do
You'd fought in the war
And you could always fix the car
I was always so proud of you

Now my son's learned to tie his shoes
Just as you've forgotten how to tie yours
And his reading's coming on really well
But you can't make out a single word

Superman's forgotten nearly everything he knew
He can't save the world any more
He's fading fast, he's not gonna last
But you'll always be Superman to me

When I was a kid and you were Superman
You always made me laugh
By putting your hat on back to front
And telling jokes for a lark

You say the world's getting blurred now
Looking through glass that's opaque
You just keep smiling, loving everything you do
And say, worrying’s just for fools

Superman's forgotten nearly everything he knew
Can't save the world any more
He's fading fast, he's not gonna last
But you'll always be Superman to me

If I could find out who's got the Kryptonite
I'd blast it into outer space
And all your powers would come rushing back
And you'd put on your magic cape

Superman's forgotten nearly everything he knew
Can't save the world any more
He's fading fast, he's not gonna last
But you'll always be Superman to me
But you'll always be Superman to me
But you'll always be Superman to me

This is a wonder tribute to people with Alzheimers. I'm taking care of my 87 year old husband who has Alzheimers as well as a number of other problems. It's not easy.
Thank you! Thank you!

My husband is 65 years old and was diagnosed when he was 59. I know to our kids he was their superman. What a loving tribute!
