On this day 14 years ago

14 years after 9/11, these lyrics really resonate with many of us, especially those living in the NY/NJ area at the time. We could relate to the pain in this song after directly or indirectly getting affected by the events of that day…

Shirts in the closet
Shoes in the hall
Mama’s in the kitchen
Baby and all
Everything is everything
Everything is everything
But you’re missing

Coffee cups on the counter
Jacket’s on the chair
Papers on the doorstep
But you’re not there
Everything is everything
Everything’s everything
But you’re missing

Pictures on the nightstand
TV’s on in the den
Your house is waiting
Your house is waiting
For you to walk in
For you to walk in
But you’re missing
You’re missing

You’re missing
When I shut out the light
You’re missing
When I close my eyes
You’re missing
When I see the sunrise
You’re missing
Children are asking if it’s alright
Will you be in our arms tonight?

Morning is morning
The evening falls
I got too much room in my bed
Too many phone calls
How’s everything everything
Everything is everything
But you’re missing

God’s drifting in heaven
Devil’s in the mailbox
Got dust on my shoes
Nothing but teardrops…
