Cue Sheet

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day
Were you in the yard with your wife and children
Or working on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock at the site of that black smoke
Rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry
Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don't know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below
Did you burst out in pride
For the red white and blue
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself and what really matters


CHORUS

I'm just a singer of simple songs
I'm not a real political man
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things He gave us
And the greatest is love


VERSE

Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Or driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you're a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her
Did you dust off that Bible at home
Did you open your eyes, hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Or speak to some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin'
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love


REPEAT CHORUS

ENDING

And the greatest is love
And the greatest is love
Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day

Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)? Lyrics ID: 1528

Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day?
Were you in the yard with your wife and children,
Or working on some stage in L.A.?
Did you stand there in shock at the sight of that black smoke,
Rising against that blue sky?
Did you shout out in anger, in fear for your neighbor,
Or did you just sit down and cry?

Did you weep for the children who lost their dear loved ones:
Pray for the ones who don't know?
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble,
And sob for the ones left below?
Did you burst out with pride for the red, white and blue,
And the heroes who died just doin' what they do?
Did you look up to Heaven for some kind of answer?
And look at yourself and what really matters?

I'm just a singer of simple songs,
I'm not a real political man.
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you,
The difference in Iraq and Iran.
But I know Jesus and I talk to God,
And I remember this from when I was young:
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us,
And the greatest is love.

Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day?
Teaching a class full of innocent children,
Or driving down some cold interstate?
Did you feel guilty 'cos you're a survivor?
In a crowded room, did you feel alone?
Did you call up your mother and tell her you loved her?
Did you dust off that Bible at home?

Did you open your eyes, an' hope it never happened,
Close your eyes and not go to sleep?
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages,
Or speak to some stranger on the street?
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow?
Go out and buy you a gun?
Did you turn off that violent old movie you're watchin',
And turn on "I Love Lucy" reruns?

Did you go to a church and hold hands with some strangers?
Stand in line and give your own blood?
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family?
Thank God you had somebody to love?

I'm just a singer of simple songs,
I'm not a real political man.
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I could tell you,
The difference in Iraq and Iran.
But I know Jesus and I talk to God,
And I remember this from when I was young:
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us,
And the greatest is love.

I'm just a singer of simple songs,
I'm not a real political man.
I watch CNN but I'm not sure I can tell you,
The difference in Iraq and Iran.
But I know Jesus and I talk to God,
And I remember this from when I was young:
Faith, hope and love are some good things He gave us,
And the greatest is love.

An' the greatest is love.

An' the greatest is love.

Where were you when the world stop turning on that September day?
