Where the Lights Shine Forever

Some twenty years ago

On a clear and sunny day

People went about their lives

In typical city time delays

Until two torpedoes appeared

And their country was betrayed

 

Where the Lights Shine Forever

 

There was no time to question

Survival was their only goal

Some tried to escape the towers

Until the fumes and fire took toll

Those who managed to escape

Thought of the rescuers so bold

Many people didn’t make it out

But today their stories are told

 

Where the Lights Shine Forever

 

Though a memorial was built

It still didn’t heal the pain

Of what our enemies did

An act that was done in vain

And so when I look at the heavens

I know God still can’t explain

 

Where the Lights Shine Forever
