He also encouraged my song writing, as a distraction from my emotional and sometimes difficult work. In November of 2001he sent me a song to listen to while I worked. He had sent me many of his songs before. I opened the file to find that he had recorded my lyrics of, " She Dances ", what a thrill for me. This is the demo of that song. It is a song about escaping back in time to when I was well and cca poisoning had not yet filled my days with pain. As most of us have something we need to forget, I am sure you can relate.



Take care everybody and please keep safe.

This song, like the song she dances, is about the effects on a life touched by MCS and sickness of really any kind. Many of us who lives have been altered by cca wood have developed MCS and the Canadian government warns that it should be kept away from those with MCS, an irony in itself.

The song is about facing public ridicule and medical misinformation and yet reaching down inside yourself and finding a way to cope. The child in this song could just as easily be a boy or even an adult turning to song and dance to find their hope.

Wherever you live in this world you will find people coming together to escape into the world of music.

As long as we have hope and magic we can survive almost anything.

If you have been touched in your life by MCS, (multiple chemical sensitivity) then I invite you to read more about it at these links below and send in your submissions to the governments who can only bring about change if they hear from you.

I would once again like to thank Dennis Aubrey of Sydney Australia for the music to go with my lyrics and for lending his voice once again to bring life to my words.

Take care everybody and please keep safe.

Listen to She Asks Me Why

 

This is a song that I wrote the lyrics for, and singer/songwriter Dennis Aubrey of Sydney Australia, wrote the music for and sings. He first made a demo of it in November of 2001 but recently re-recorded it in August 2003. The lyrics have been slightly changed.

When I first started working on the net, trying to teach people about the dangers of CCA wood in March of 2001, I bumped into Dennis. He listened to the story of what happened to my family and encouraged me to expand my work globally.

Listen to She Dances

She Dances By Deborah Elaine Barrie November 18, 2001©

She is longing for the sunshine
She wants to laugh again
She is praying for the strength
And the wonder of a friend
So she holds her head up high
As the music fills her mind
And she dances and she dances
Back in time.

She's a young girl once again
The words take her away
To some enchanted place
She lived another day
And the smells of the moment
Are as real as they were then
And she dances and she dances
Again.

All her captured memories
Have awakened her desire
And left her passion burning
And her spirit lifted higher
With no hope of returning
To what was before
She dances

A dance across the floor.

She is living in the sunshine
She is laughing once again
For she has found her strength
In the arms of her old friend
And she's holding up her head
As the music fills her mind
And she dances and she dances
Lost in time.

She Asks Me Why by Deborah Elaine Barrie March 16,2004©

Sheís a little blonde haired beauty
And her eyes shine so blue
She wishing for a genie
To make her dreams come true
Sometimes I hear her laughing
Sometimes I hear her cry
She walks into my dreams each night
And always asks me why

Why canít I be a little girl
Thatís all I want to do
To dress up like a princess
And to dance around with you
Why canít we wish on rainbows
And know it will come true
If I could Iíd wish away
The pain from me and you.

Sheís a little blonde haired beauty
With purple on her mind
Sheís hoping for a puppy
A little fluffy kind
Butterflies and fairies
Have taught her how to fly
She walks into my dreams each night
And always asks me why.

Why canít I be like other kids
Why does my mommy cry
Why canít the other children see
How hard I really try
I am tired of all the doctors
I am tired of all the pain
She begs me for an answer
Then she calls me by my name.

This little blonde haired beauty
Whoís dancing through the room
Sheís told me she can drift away
Lost in the perfect tune
Sheís caught up in the music
She finds the strength to try
She walks into my dreams each night
And always asks me why.

Why canít I be a little girl
Thatís all I want to do
To dress up like a princess
And dance around with you
Why canít we wish on rainbows
And know it will come true
If I could Iíd wish away
The pain from me and you.
