From the recording Plymouth Belvedere
This song was written about a month after the tragic events of 9/11/2001
At the edge of the dark we stood looking backward
At the edge of the dark we were frozen with fear
Back when you held me tight
We were safe through the night
But in one day the world changed forever
From the depths of despair we will find one another
From the depths of despair we will know hope again
We will give up our fright
And prepare for the fight
For in one day the world changed forever.
Will the grieving ever end?
Our innocence is lost
Will they ever understand?
Can we get ideals across
Will the era ever come when we can live in peace…..?
As we move through the tears, our resolve will be stronger
As we move through the years, we’ll start over again
And we’ll reach a new height
Something big, bold and bright,
And we’ll see the world changing forever
At the edge of the dawn, we stand looking forward
At the edge of the dawn, we know just who we are
We will do what is right
We will turn on the light
And the world will know freedom forever.
