You will make it

  Go to bed everything's alright
  Don't know the whole world's changing
  As you sleep through the night
  Wake up slowly and it's a different world
 
  Hear the news and the floods begin
  Screams so loud but only felt within
  Heart is shattered
  The pieces can't be found
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this  song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will make it through
  I promise you, he would want you to
 
  Months go by, still living in a daze
  Don't know what you've done
  With the last seven days
  Soul is numb and life is like a dream
 
  Helping hands but you push them away
  How could they understand
  Don't wanna share your pain
  Afraid to heal, 'cause that would be goodbye
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will  make it through
  I promise you, she would want you to

  One day sunlight hits a photograph
  And it makes you smile
 
  The memories dance around you now
  And they make you smile
  You're not alone
  You'll never be
  Just like the stars
  They oversee
  And they whisper to you
  You're still, you're still,
  You're still, you're still alive
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will make it through
  I promise you, they would want you to
 
  Do not stand at my grave and weep
  I am not there I do not sleep
  I am a thousand winds that blow
  I am the diamond glints on snow
  I am the sun on ripened grain
  I am the gentle autumn rain
  When you awaken in the morning's hush
  I am the swift uplifting rush
  Of quiet birds in circled flight
  I am the soft stars that shine at night
  Do not stand at my grave and cry
  I am not there; I did not die

God Bless This Mess

    Daddy's in the hallway
    Hanging pictures on the wall
    Mama's in the kitchen
    Making casseroles for all
    My brother came home yesterday
    From somewhere far away
    He doesn't look like I remember
    He just stares off into space
    He must've seen some ugly things
    He just can't seem to say
      
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
      
    Got a job in town
    Selling insurance on the phone
    With Robert and Teresa
    And two con men from back home
    Everyone I call up doesn't have the time to chat
    Everybody is so busy doing this and doing that
    Something has gone missing 
      
    And it makes me kinda sad, oh
      
    God bless this mess 
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
      
    Heard about the day 
    that two skyscrapers came down
    Firemen, policemen
    And people came from all around
    The smoke covered the city 
    And the body count arise
    The president spoke words of comfort
    With tears in his eyes
    Then he led us as a nation 
    Into a war all based on lies, oh
      
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
