lyrics

When I remember you I think of flowers on blouses
Sad country songs in a home in a circle of houses
When I remember you I recall the dog day vacations
A week full of rain trying your patience
The flies on the screen seem to loom
When I remember you

Dorothy, switch off your T.V. and talk to me for a while
And tell me one of your stories about Dorothy and I’ll see you smile
Like you remember me too

When I remember you I hear the laughter contagious
It’s on all of the faces in the kitchen with the checkered floor
And when I remember you I smell the cedar in the treasures
The leaves from the hedges fall to your feet upon the front porch
While the neighbours clamber for your point of view
When I remember you

Dorothy, switch off your T.V. and talk to me for a while,
And tell me one of your stories about Dorothy and I’ll see you smile,
Like you remember me too

When I remember you

The clothes line hangs heavy in the afternoon
And Sunday supper fills my head with perfume
And milk bottles don’t rattle like they used to
But I still remember you

Dorothy, switch off your T.V. and talk to me for a while
And tell me one of your stories about Dorothy and I’ll see you smile
Like you remember me too
Yeah like you remember me too

about

the james clark institute Toronto, Ontario

With a wink and a nod to the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto (now CAMH), The James Clark Institute is the musical guise for singer and songwriter James Clark. Confronting the ghosts of his past, James spins his personal demons into witty, well-crafted pop-folk/rock tunes.

His writing is inspired by the works of Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Michael Nesmith to name a few.
