Speeches won't be made today, clocks will carry on
Flowers won't be left in parks, work will still be done
People won't be dressed in black, babies will be born
No flags will fly, the sun will rise,
But we will know that you are gone

You who love to love and believed we can never give enough

It wakes me every single night, thinking through the day
Did you stop at any time, have doubts at any stage
And were you calm or were you numb? or happy just to get it done?
I've lived my life without regret until today

And you who love to love and believed we can never give enough

I didn't get to say goodbye the day before the day
Was trying to get to work on time, that's why I turned away
And missed the most important thing you ever tried to say
I've lived my life without regret until today

And you who love to love and believed we can never give enough
And you who hoped that underneath we all felt the same
That was until the day before the day

The day before the day
The day before the day
Ohh, the day before the day
The day before the day
Ohh, the day before the day
Ohh, the day before the day
Ohh, the day before the day

    Seems like it's about losing someone in a tragic event without getting the chance to say goodbye, possibly in the 9/11 attacks.
