Once There Stood Twin Towers There

Words & music by:
SAM SCARDIGNO & EMANUEL GIACOBBE

Ballad

I take my walk each morning along the river side, Then
without any warningI feel this hurt inside,
never can erasethe tears running down my face. My
heart begins to race as I look at that empty space. OH MY
GOD! OH MY GOD!I could hear the people yell. OH MY
GOD! OH MY GOD! _ as the blazing towers fell.
Once there stood twin towers there, rising in the sky.
Now there's nothing but thin air where birds are free to fly.
Now there's nothing but thin air, where birds are free to fly.
