Silence Of the City - McFly

It was Tuesday afternoon,
I got home from work quite soon,
I turned on the tv and,
What did I see?
I saw World War Three,
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 horrific 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.

And New York, New York,
So good they named you twice,
The city that never sleeps,
Do you believe your eyes?
And by this act of war,
Big apple is eaten to the core,
And two tall towers,
Crumble to the floor,
And Manhattan isn't there,
It's there 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 & worn out fire-fighters,
Hoping to hear cries,
And emergency & medics,
Overcome by exhaustion,
And all rescue workers,
Filled with 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 eleventh of September,
Two thousand & one,
The world trade centre,
And the U.S. Pentagon,
These pictures that we see,
Almost defies belief,
On the streets of New York City,
People are hit by sheer grief.

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 admired before,
The tall twin towers,
Simply are there no more.

In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence Of The City,
In the Silence.
