Lyrics

The March wind was cold,
I felt a chill deep in my soul,
The news rang out across the miles
A chopper crashed on its routine flight.

Many young lives gone,
What went wrong?
Only one survived,
And seventeen lost their lives.

March twelfth, two-thousand nine:
A day now written in time,
People going home to empty places,
Broken hearts and sad faces.

A country in disbelief,
United in grief.

Life’s such a mystery,
Dreams are only memories,
But we all will remember and stand strong,
Living for our daughters and our sons.

The soul moves on to the sea and the sky,
We never leave, we really never say goodbye,
We live on in each and every one,
Life goes on.

March twelfth, two-thousand nine:
A day now written in time,
People going home to empty places,
Broken hearts and sad faces.

A country in disbelief
United in grief,
United in grief.

 

Lyrics transcribed from the video by Meggan Howatson.
