  1. Another Day

From the recording Another Day

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
