Where were you when the world stop turning

Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day

Were you in
the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in L.A.
Did
you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke
Rising against
that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger, in 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 heroes who died just
doin’ what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And
look at yourself and what really matters

(chorus)
I’m just a
singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m
not sure I could
Tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran
But 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 stop turning on that September
day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold
interstate
Did you feel guilty ’cause you’re a survivor
In a crowded room
did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved
her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes, hope it
never happened
And you close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice
the sunset 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 and buy you
a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you’re watchin’
And turn on
“I Love Lucy” reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some
strangers
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
