Remembrance Day - The Remix

by David Nyro



We offer this special tribute song to the world. Inspired by personal experience. It's our dream and passion that this song be a vehicle to inspire, catalyze, promote, comfort, honor, touch - even disturb and upset - in our communal quest to reach a place in our country where we enact and enforce more sensible and safer gun control laws. Where we address more fully the varied and complicated issues of mental/emotional health. Where we reach out more to the bullied and those who bully. Violence will always be with us. But we CAN do better. We MUST do better.


Remembrance Day

Intro and Verse 1:
You wake up It's a gray day
Make breakfast It's a gray day
Drink a cup It's a gray day
Long ago, but never far away

You go to work It's another day
Someone jokes You smile and turn away It’s a gray day
Drink a cup There's nothing to say
Looking up It's still a gray day

Chorus:It's Remembrance Day
Light the candle
Wear the ribbon Place the bouquet where they lay
It was just another day Now it will always be
Remembrance Day.
Verse 2:
You go home, what a day! Fix supper in the fading gray
Raise a glass to those who passed away Long ago, but like yesterday.
The black overcomes the gray day You watch the news but you have to turn away
You go to bed, tomorrow’s another day, come what may, come what may, come what may, come what may
It’s remembrance day


August 1st (another day) July 27th, (another day) October 16th, (another day)

The 11th of September and January 8th (another day), July 20, and December 14, (another day and another day)

April 15th, April 16th, April 19th and April 20th, not another day and another day and another day, oh - oh

Pretty soon every day, will be a gray day . . . Like it is in Chicago, and Philadelphia, and L.A.

Every day, every day, every day, a Remembrance Day a Remembrance Day Listen to what the people say

It’s remembrance day . . . (instrumental)
Light the candle Wear the ribbon Place the bouquet where they lay
It was just another day
Now it will always be
Remembrance Day.
