9/11

Where were you when the world stopped turnin'
On that September day,
Out in the yard your wife and children
Or workin on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock
At the sight of that black smoke risin' against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger and fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry
Did you weep for the children who lost their dear love ones
And pray for the ones who dont know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below
Did you burst out in pride for the red white and blue
And the heros who died just foin what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters

*Chorus*
Im not a real political man
I watch CNN but im not sure i can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
I know Jesus and i talk to god
And i remember this from when i was young
Fate hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turing
On that September day
Teachin' a class full of innocent children
Or diving dow some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cuz you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep

Did you notice the sunset for the first time in ages
Or speak to some strager on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out an buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
And turn on 'I Love Lucy' re-runs
Did you go to church and hold hands with some stangers
And stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank god you had somebody to love
