Tuesday, September 11, 2001, was the date when four commercial jets were hijacked, and flown into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and rural Pennsylvania.

VERSE 1:   Monday, September 10
           I kissed you casually at the door
           No thought that Tuesday might bring war
           That I might never see you again

VERSE 2:   Tuesday, September 11
           I didn't know if you were alive or dead
           I lived for hours with a sense of dread
           Until you e-mailed me just before 7

CHORUS:    Tuesday, I saw how deeply I love you
           We're intertwined, soul and heart
           Tuesday, I fell apart
           At the thought that you might die too

VERSE 3:   Wednesday, I sobbed for hours on end
           Thinking of your body parts tossed in a box
           Thursday, I watched the news and clocks
           To see when the airports might open again


MIDDLE-8:  It's tragic that it took a terrorist attack
           Thousands buried in skyscraper dust
           For me to see that you're not just
           A lover that I sort of love back

VERSE 4:   Friday, you finally were here
           I flew out the door just to feel your touch
           I kissed you all over saying I loved you so much
           For once you felt that I was sincere
