Story

It was Sept 11th, 2001. We were in Italy living and healing from the loss of our son just months before. We were on the coast in Cinque Terra ready to just chill for the day when we hiked to the parking lot to get supplies and the parking attendant who knew we were American. He told us the news of that morning as it was unfolding. We saw on live TV in a coffee bar the scene as the 2nd plane flew into the tower. I was dazed and disoriented. We were a days drive from our Italian home and felt we needed to go there  to collect ourselves and contact family. There were no communications coming or going in or out of America. For the next month Italian TV ran every possible aspect of the story and with panels of people from all walks of life and professions to try and make sense of that day. 

I felt I needed to write a song, a tribute to the families and victims who experienced that loss. Three days later it came to me. I have since recorded it. a very raw version. It is on the 12 song CD that is named "Un Altro Giorno" which means another day in Italian. That CD I made as a gift to take back to Italy and give to friends and family there. Here you can listen to the whole song

This song is a tribute to America on that day and a mirror of my sadness for my own loss of my step son Elijah R Sabia (June 1977-March 2001).

Lyrics

ANOTHER  DAY     BY KAHISH

 

IT IS THE END OF ANOTHER DAY

EVERYTHING HAS TURNED TO GRAY

BENEATH THE RUBBLE, BURIED SO DEEP

ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, WHO NOW SLEEP

THEIR FAMILIES ARE WEEPING, CHILDREN PERPLEXED

HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN, WHAT WILL BE NEXT

 

SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP TIGHT MY FRIEND

THIS IS THE BEGINNING, IT,S NOT THE END

THE WORLD STOPS IN SILENCE

TO BID YOU FAREWELL

HUMANDKIND UNITED, OPPOSE THE GATES OF HELL

 

EACH PIECE OF STONE, BRICK SCATTERED ON THE GROUND

WIRES & MACHINES, TWISTED METAL COOLING DOWN

HEADS HELD IN TREMBLING HANDS, HEARTS ARE STILL

DISBELIEF & HEARTACHE, CAN THIS BE REAL?

WE STOP TO HEAR OUR OWN HEARTS BEATS, WE CRY & WE PRAY

WE JUST CAN’T FIND THE RIGHT WAY OUT. WE START ANOTHER DAY

 

SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP TIGHT MY FRIEND

THIS IS THE BEGINNING, IT,S NOT THE END

THE WORLD STOPS IN SILENCE

TO BID YOU FAREWELL

UNITING AND FIGHTING TO CLOSE THE GATES OF HELL

 

THE TWINS IN THE SKY, THEY TWINKLE SO BRIGHT

DISAPPEAR IN THE DAY BUT WE SEE THEM AT NIGHT

I BECKON YOU, YOU HEAR ME CALL, YOUR VOICE CAN’T BE HEARD

WE COUNT THE 1 & COUNT THE 2, FORGETTING ABOUT THE THIRD

WORLDS SPINNING FAR APART ALL WANT 1 THING

UNTIL WE FIND OUT WHAT IT IS,

THIS SONG WE WILL SING ANOTHER DAY
