Not Ignoring the Date…

Not Ignoring the Date…

…but really, what more can I say than I have in years past? It’s seven years later, yet I can still recall so much of that horrific day.

This still captures the essence, for me.

“Look mummy, there’s an aeroplane up in the sky”

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh(x 2)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
Did-did-did-did-you ever wonder why we had to run for shelter
When the promise of a brave new world
Unfurled beneath a clear blue sky?

Oooooooo ooo ooo ooo ooooh (x 1)
Did-did-did-did-you see the frightened ones?
Did-did-did-did-you hear the falling bombs?
The flames are all long gone, but the pain lingers on.

Goodbye, blue sky
Goodbye, blue sky.
Goodbye.(x 2)

“The 11:15 from Newcastle is now approaching”
“The 11:18 arrival….”
