One Day

(david m. bailey)
david m. bailey
One Day in Dallas, the world came to a stop
Time was frozen as our chosen one began to drop
C, +2
Everybody knew that everything would change
Fear came into view as hope fell out of range
FM7, C/E
It's a simple thing to pull a trigger
Change the course of history with a shot
Not always as simple as it seems
When the smoke clears, what have you got? you got nothing

One Day in Columbine, the country learned to weep
Time was frozen with the promises we could not keep
Everybody knew there was someone else to blame
But in the morning dew the graves all looked the same

It's a simple thing to pull a trigger
Steal the spotlight with just a shot
Not always as simple as it seems
After all the tears what have you got? you got nothing

One day in New York we heard the wicked sound
Time was frozen as we watched the walls come tumbling down
no one really knew what the days would hold
First we pulled together then our blood ran cold

it's a simple thing to pull a trigger
Some battles simply must be fought
But ten thousand bodies later
hard to say who's good and who is not

One day in Jerusalem on a rocky little hill
We stood by in silence as blood began to spill
No one really cared except a dozen friends
All of them were scared and could not comprehend

It's a simple thing to kill a savior
Even if it means there’s hell to pay
grace truly is amazing
After 3 days, Love showed us the way
And with this Love, what have we you got? We you got everything
