Lyrics

The day the world changed It took us by surprise
Fire bombs flying over crystal clear blue skies

And life will never be the same
Deep on the inside we are changed

And everybody is crying over New York City
And no one can believe that this is true
America has always been the free world
And New York City is a piece of me and you

Call me a dreamer but I still believe in love
When it all comes crashing down I reach far above

And I know this will make us stronger
If you take my hand we can't go wrong
Take my hand

And everybody is crying over New York City
And no one can believe that this is true
America has always been the free world
And New York City is a piece of me and you

They shut out all the lights down on Broadway
The keyboard player say she don't wanna sing
They're still digging bodies out of the wreckage
A mother waits by a telephone that may never ring

And everybody is crying over New York City
And no one can believe that this is true
America has always been the free world
And New York City is a piece of me and you

New York City is a piece of me and you


Crying Over New York City
