One New Yorker's reflections on 9/11, in a song

Lyrics

One Day the Sun Came Up (9/11/2001)

One day the sun came up
we were high over the canyon
and headed for home

racing the sunrise
don't look back
you know California's a dream to you now

And somehow I don't sleep
no comfort
no matter how high are my head or my feet

I can't look at me now
all is falling
is it the years or the loss
on my face?

one day the sun rose behind us
to light the way
somehow, I think
it got lost in the clouds

Thinking about you
it passes - thank god
I can't live that again

Smoke, fire, and dust
as we all drift away up high
floating goodbye
you know those who are left behind
feel it the most

and still I don't sleep
no comfort
no matter how high are my head or my feet

One day the sun came back
smoke, fire, and dust
we will settle back down
dusting the ground
float away on the river
