"Tuesday" as written by and John / Ondrasik....
One year like any old other year
In a week like any week
Monday lying down
Half asleep

People doing what people do
Loving, working and getting through
No portraits on the walls
Of seventh avenue

Then Tuesday came and went
Like a helicopter overhead
The letter that she left
Cold addressed in red
Tuesday came and went one
One September
When will she come again

The thing about memories
They're sure and bound to fade
Except for the stolen souls
Left upon her blade

Is Monday coming back
That's what mondays do
They turn and turn around
Afraid to see it through

Tuesday came and went
Like a helicopter overhead
The letter that she left
Cold addressed in red
Tuesday came and went one
One September
When will she come again

Tuesday came and went one
One September, when?
Cold and dressed in red
How could I forget
Tuesday came and went
Like a helicopter overhead
Will she come again

    General CommentI don't know what to think about this song... sometimes I think it's about a woman, then the next time I listen to it, it's about 9/11. It's a wonderful song, but it confuses me.

    General CommentI'm positive this is about 9/11 - Tuesday, September, portraits on the wall, and then in the CD liner there is an American flag image behind the lyrics. But I'm not sure who exactly he's waiting for to come back - Tuesday (the next Tuesday will everything be normal again?), an actual woman who was killed, a woman who was looking for someone? I'm not sure.

    General CommentI think there is no doubt that Ondrasik is referring to 9-11 and the message is "Don't forget". If we let it fade like a memory, it may come back again!
