That September Day Lyrics

Where were you when the world stopped turin'
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 loved
ones
And pray for the ones who don't 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 do'in what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm 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
Faith 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 down 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 stranger 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

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm 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
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm 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
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

And the greatest is love
And the greatest is love

Where were you when the world stopped turin'
On that September day
