"Just Remember" as written by Ken Block, Jeff Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Carter Newell and Mark E. Trojanowski....
A crooked chimney standing in the middle of a field
Once surrounded by the walls of work
By laughter and by love
The sound of children playing
I love you, yeah you

A crooked tree stands naked near the center of the field
Barely rooted in the browns and grays
Of earth that once was green
A place long since forgotten
In a world of yesterday
Except by me, yeah me

And Oh, whose plan was this anyway
And I never thought "He" would want it to be that way

It once was beautiful, right here
It still is beautiful, in here
You once were beautiful, I hear
I hear it can be beautiful
Just remember

A twisted little image in your perfect little world
Of the chapter where it'd all begun
About a song already sung
Burnt around the edges
Nearly faded, nearly gone
Even you, yeah you

A shiny building standing in the center of today
Where indifferent people go to work
Go about their pay
Knowing they've forgotten
In a most convenient way
Yesterday, away

And Oh, whose plan was this anyway
And I never thought "He" would want it to be that way

It once was beautiful, right here
It still is beautiful, in here
You once were beautiful, I hear
I hear it can be beautiful
Just remember

And Oh, whose plan was this anyway
And I never thought "He" would want it to be that way

It once was beautiful, right here
It still is beautiful, in here
You once were beautiful, I hear
I hear it can be beautiful
Just remember

It once was beautiful, right here
It still is beautiful, in here
You once were beautiful, I hear
I hear it can be beautiful
Just remember

    General CommentOn the new Sister Hazel Before the Amplifiers" Acoustic CD, Ken states that he was driving down the road, and he literally saw a crooked chimney standing in the middle of a field .

    "A crooked chimney standing in the middle of a field
    Once surrounded by the walls of work
    By laughter and by love
    The sound of children playing
    And the sound of people saying
    I love you--yeah you"

    He stated that he wrote the song, because he realized that at one time, that chimney was the center of someone's home and life. They gathered there to live and eat and play and love. Seeing the chimney alone there showed that somehow, everything else was gone.

    I grew up in the country where I always saw chimneys sticking up out in fields, and I thought it was odd that the house was gone. Hearing Ken's description of why he wrote this song really touched my heart.

    "And Oh--whose plan was this anyway
    And I never thought He would want it to be that way"

    It is a great song . . . Just remember!
