about

Dana wrote this song in the first weeks after the 9/11 attack, inspired by the true stories of those left in the aftermath searching, without answers regarding the whereabouts of their loved ones.

lyrics

MOMENT AWAY
(Dedicated to the victims of violence and war everywhere)

This weary lullaby bleeds a broken sky
Burning my aching eyes – that still look for you

Can’t even claim what’s mine – from what they left behind
I’ll never rest my eyes – til I lay them on you
Don’t look away now

And don’t cry without me, I’m only a moment away
Don’t cry without me, I’m only a moment away

Another long, long year. Seems you were just right here
A kiss goodbye with no tears – meant just for a day

Wish I’d said a prayer - for just one more day to spare
Before forever was here - to take you away

Now don’t cry without me, I’m only a moment away
No don’t cry without me, I’m only a moment away

I feel every hour come and go
The sun just chills me to the bone
I only sleep – to dream you back home

So don’t cry without me, I’m only a moment away
No baby don’t cry about me, I’m only a moment away

This weary lullaby - bleeds a broken sky
Burning my aching eyes – that still look for you
I’ll look forever
