The World Changed Today

THE WORLD CHANGED TODAY
© Audrey Auld 9/13/2001 (APRA)

I’m filled with tears
I don’t know why I cry

But in a turn of the hand
Too many people died
All that I believed in
Doesn’t seem so sure
And everything that mattered
Doesn’t matter anymore

Cause the world changed today
The world changed today
In a message to America
The world changed forever today

A monument
Turned to ash and sand
They desecrate the very
Pillars of the land
Shattered on a weekday
All the nine-to-fives
The bitter dust will settle
On everybody’s lives

Cause the world changed today
The world changed today
In a message to America
The world changed forever today

It’s different now
The shadows hold new fears
The circle has been broken
The soldiers fight their tears
Out across the oceans
There’s people just like me
Who pray and cry and wonder why
They murder to be free

I’m grieving for
No-one that I know
Save for every beating heart
Every John Doe
No amount of money
Could settle this score
But all the love in all the world
Could bring the end of war

Cause the world changed today
The world changed today
In a message to America
The world changed forever today

The world changed today
The world changed today
In a message to America
The world changed forever today

In a message to America
My world changed forever today
