Candles in the Windows

When the planes burst into flames
And the towers crumbled down
Friend and enemy alike
Felt a tremblin' in the ground
The shock, it rippled 'round the world
The sorrow and the fright
And people we called enemies
Lit candles in the night
 
A mother in Morocco
A teacher in Tehran
A soldier in El Salvador
A child in Pakistan
Lit candles in their windows
For strangers far away
They felt our common sorrow
We were family that day
 
And there were candles, candles
Candles in the windows
All around the world
Candles, candles
There were candles all around the world
 
Today it's eight long years gone by
How little now remains
Of the good will that surrounded us
In the midst of all that pain
Oh, the wars that we have started
The lives that have been lost
The trust that has been broken
How can we count the cost?
 
Oh, but don't you still remember
That day when we were one?
The day we were the wounded
Not the heroes in the sun?
The day our nation trembled
And the world drew close and warm?
With candles in the windows
Like a beacon in the storm?
 
There were candles, candles,
There were candles in the windows
All around the world
There were candles, candles
There were candles all around the world
 
So don't you still remember
That day when we were one?
The day we were the wounded
Not the heroes in the sun?
The day our nation trembled
And the world drew close and warm
With candles in the windows
Like beacons in the storm?
 
So on this night of memory
We light our candles all
For a country who reached out to us
And who needs our friendship now
Each window shines a message
No war, not in our name
The people of Iran, the people here
All feel the same
 
And we light candles, candles
We light candles in the windows
All around the world
We light candles, candles
Candles all around the world
 
And there were candles, candles
Candles in the windows
All around the world
There were candles, candles
There were candles all around the world
All around the world
 
¡Gracias!
