The day America cried

as we watched the towers fall

our tears fell like rain

from the pain we felt inside

but on freedoms ground

we raised our flag so high

on the day, the day

America cried.


Through the smoke and rubble

though our hearts were heavy laiden

we tried, Lord we tried

to save one more precious life

and tho the lives that were lost

will always be remembered  

for the day, the day

America cried.


Dedicated to women and men who lost their lives on 09 11
