Side By Side     © 2001 William McMillan

Side by side – they stood, for all the world to see

Side by side – sentinels, of the land of the free

Side by side – they crumbled, and the whole world cried

Side by side – they tumbled, but their spirit – never died

 

Forces of evil – unprovoked attack

Forces of evil – a knife in the back

Forces of evil – just like the serpent’s seed

Forces of evil – such a heinous deed

 

Side by side – we watched, with a tear in every eye

Side by side – parting, without a last goodbye

Side by side – in a world, that will never be the same

Side by side – like gravestones, with seven thousand names

 

The shadows of the towers, now reach across the sea

The shadows of the towers, as far as you can see

The shadows of the towers, with one goal in view

The shadows of the towers, will find the guilty few

 

Side by side – Twin Towers, now rise in every land

Side by side – Twin Towers, in every city stand

Side by side – Twin Towers, speak in every town

Side by side they send a warning – the whole world around

 

Voices from the ashes – will rise forevermore

Voices from the ashes – heard from shore to shore

Voices from the ashes cry for justice and peace

Voices from the ashes – the sound will never cease

 

Side by side – they stood, for all the world to see

Side by side – sentinels, of the land of the free

Side by side – they crumbled, and the whole world cried

Side by side – they tumbled, but their spirit – never died
