Danny Jones – Silence Of The City lyrics

It was Tuesday afternoon
I got home from work right soon
I turned on the tv and what did I see
I saw World War iii staring back at me
I thought I might wake up to reality
There wasn't gonna be (yeah)
And all I could see was this refuted tragedy

In the silence of the city
No mobile phones ring
In the silence of the city
You cannot hear a thing
In the silence of the city
The smiles are washed away
In the silence of the city
There's nothing left to say

New York, New York
So good they named you twice
The city that never sleeps
Do you believe your eyes
In a violence act of war
The Big Apple is in all too the cold
And two tall towers
Crumble to the floor
And Manhattan is a lair
Cause there is no more

In the silence of the city
No mobile phones ring
In the silence of the city
You cannot hear a thing
In the silence of the city
The smiles are washed away
In the silence of the city
There's nothing left to say

And hardened New York cops
With tears in their eyes
Tired and all the firefighters
Hoping to hear cries
And the numerous paramedics
Overcome by exhaustion and all
Rescue workers feel the deep emotion

In the silence of the city
No mobile phones ring
In the silence of the city
You cannot hear a thing
In the silence of the city
The smiles are washed away
In the silence of the city
There's nothing left to say

The 11th of September 2001
The World Trade Centre and the us Pentagon
These pictures that we've seen
Almost defies belief
On the streets of New York City
People all hear by shared peace

In the silence of the city
No mobile phones ring
In the silence of the city
You cannot hear a thing
In the silence of the city
The smiles are washed away
In the silence of the city
There's nothing left to say

The New York City Skyline
We all admire before
Tall twin towers
To plea of them no more
Silence of the city [x7]
Silence
