jimmy wife came to see me today
not quite sure why she came all these way
still i was glad to see her,
she said hello how your doing?
i said fine
and you look great
she said thank you
but I'm haven't been fine
in a long long time
ever since jimmy die in the first tower
that memory will stay stain on my mind
now my young one has a lot of questions
and still i don't know what to say
cause he still thinks daddy gonna pull up
in the driveway
but when i close my eyes
i can still see that plane crashing the tower
and jimmy calling me
not knowing where to begin
accept saying he loves me
and give are baby a kiss
than the sound of silence
now she said aren't
we suppose to be safe
in our own American skin
than how did we
let them soil are land
and commit such a bloody sin
i don't understand
i just don't understand
oh jimmy wife came to see me today
not quite sure why she came all this way
still i was glad to see her
but I didn't know what to say
accept i gave her my shoulder
to cry on today
