For Boston

Krista Burr 

The dawn of a new day
and tears fall down their cheeks
As if it were only yesterday
We remember what happened.

And tears fall down their cheeks
they mourn the lost and injured
We remember what happened
That fearful day in Boston.

They mourn the lost and injured
paying respects and giving praise
That fearful day in Boston
suddenly everything changed

Paying respects and giving praise
to those who died and those who rescued
Suddenly everything changed
the world upheld Boston.

To those who died and those who rescued
thank you for today
The world upheld Boston
We came together

Thank you for today
the dawn of a new day
We came together
as if it were only yesterday.
