Song Description

The day coming back, the horror, how understanding what happened may still not help. The terrible waste of treasured lives, the devastation in the city, the courage and fortitude. The hopeless path and chasms of the perpetrators. The contrasting comfort and pride in the lives and beliefs of our loved ones, the treasured memories they have left us. When we stand together, and the clock stops again this yera.

Story Behind the Song

A melancholy sad song of remembering lost loved ones in the tragedy of the 9/11 terror attack. How the clocks stopped, how the world stopped, how life stopped. and how our hearts and lives still stop at that time on this day. But, how comforted we are by remembering our loved ones, their vivacity, their living, their presence. How, throughout the year, in a moment they can be close,memories, little things reminding us.

Lyrics

The clock stops again, it has to,
understanding may not help,
the days and years now taken,
will be forever felt,
can't see you for a long time,
but keep you in my heart,
don't think that things are just fine, when you are not a part.

When ash had filled our city,
when flames had burned our souls,
and the world cried out in pity
at the hate of self made foes.
Can't they see their paths are finite,
never lead to where they think,
in chasms deep are swallowed
in vitriol that sinks.

CHORUS
There's a whisper somewhere,
a note in the air,
a step next to mine,
I feel it sometimes,
come into my dreams and rest with me,
come into my thoughts every day,
I'm holding your hand, it brings comfort,
I don't think that you're that far away.

There may be days of solace,
of songs heard in the wind,
when raindrops fall upon me,
like welcome tears and friends.
Though there may not be a rainbow,
no pot of gold for me,
there is joy in my believing
that you again, I'll see.

When our years are so far distant,
lives are getting worn,
at the universe insistence,
earth's time ends in a storm,
its clock stops, like it did that day,
we are together now as one,
knew such joy, were truly blessed,
just children in the sun.


CHORUS
There's a whisper somewhere
a note in the air,
a step next to mine,
I feel it sometimes,
come into my dreams and rest with me,
come into my thoughts every day,
I'm holding your hand, it brings comfort,
I don't think that you're that far away.
