Tryin' To Get Back Home
For Jeremy Glick, United Flight 93, and Emerson. 9/11/01


I just called to say I love you
I just called to say goodbye
I just called to say, oooh that I love you
'Cause soon I will be falling from the sky

I just called to say I'm sorry
For what I said to you last night
I just called to say I love you one last time
'Cause me dear I am quite prepared to die

You say they struck the great twin towers
You say they're collapsing to the ground
Well just a short time ago we went and took a vote
It was unanimous - we're gonna take these fuckers down
Even if we have to ram our plane into the ground

In a way it's sorta funny
I've always hated these damn cellphones
When the smoke has cleared, don't you let 'em call me a hero
You tell 'em I was just tryin' to get back home
I'm just tryin' to get back home

So I just called to say I love you
I just called to say goodbye
I just called to say that I've always loved you baby
'Cause soon I will be falling from the sky

   Don't let the tear cloud your eyes
   Stand tall and proud, we're all gonna rise
