Lyrics

Who are you looking for?
Who are you missing?
Who are you longing for?
What are their names?
Where are the eyes that smiled?
Are they lost, are they living?
Searching the ruins of another day

He was a gentle man,
a friend and a neighbor
He played the violin
He wasn’t half bad
He had a wife he loved,
a child in the future
What are they thinking of,
those who are so mad?

Y’know, I want to say, my life is still all right,
I wake into the light each day
But there are shadows cast, they fall like autumn leaves
They are all we’ve lost on one terrible day

I didn’t know him
But I feel like I do
I haven’t suffered
But I’m still bleeding through
I’m not a widow, I’m not lost or alone
Why am I grieving like he was my own?

The moon keeps its orbit
the sun shows its face
the world keeps on changing
but it’s still the same place
I don’t pretend to be above hate
But I wish, I wish we could make it go away

Y’know, I want to say, my life is still all right,
I wake into the light each day
But there are shadows cast, they fall like autumn leaves
They are all we’ve lost on one ugly day
