I'll Never Heal (inspired by September 11th)
Lyrics
I?ll Never Heal

This used to be my favorite time of year
Before leaves fell to the ground
September Sun burned crisp and clear
And hilltops shined in crimson brown.
And we?d take walks beneath the pines
Sparkling bright with morning frost
Never dreaming then that I?d
Be holding on to things I?ve lost.

Now the world just turns around me
It?s been years since you?ve been gone
And my friends still offer comfort
They say it?s time I?m moving on.
But my heart?s forever broken
Or at least that?s how I feel
And missing you the way I do?
I?m afraid I?ll never heal.

I visit the places we once knew
But they just don?t seem the same.
And all your pictures faded blue
Forever silent in their frame...

While the world still turns around me
It?s been years since you?ve been gone
And my friends still offer comfort
They say it?s time I?m moving on.
But my heart?s forever broken
Or at least that?s how I feel
And missing you the way I do?
I?m afraid I?ll never heal

Bridge (climactic)

I?ve been asking God for answers
Since my world came crashing down
When everything I ever loved
Got laid into the ground

{Softly}

And now the world just turns around me
Though it?s been years since you?ve been gone
My friends still offer comfort
They say it?s time I?m moving on.
But my life?s forever broken
Or at least that?s how I feel
And missing you the way I do?
I?m afraid I?ll never heal

And loving you the way I do?
I?m afraid I?ll never heal.
Short Song Description:
Inspired by September 11th

I wrote this song after watching a documentary about Flight 93 and its heroes. In an interview, one of the surviving family members said she'll never "completely heal" and this song came pouring out of me.
