Mister D: My FB friend, Robin Lerner, and two of her friends wrote this beautiful song for Bette to sing in her Kiss My Brass Tour. I loved it and thought it should be her next single. If I’m not mistaken, it really was scheduled to be. But, surprisingly, the song got a mixed reaction in concert. I just couldn’t believe I was hearing some hisses and boos. I guess we were all supposed to believe 9-11 happened in a vacuum where another country just hated us because of our freedom. This song asks we do a little self-reflection, ask questions as to why, could there be another reason, for instance, all our interventions in the name of democracy? Well, when I heard the song those were some of the ideas I had. So sorry that this song got lost in the controversial fire

Lyrics: September
(Robin Lerner, Steven DuBerry, and Hillary Lindsey)

Have we learned our lesson
Or would we do it all again
Will we keep on second guessing
What’s as plain as anything

I know they said we had it coming
But I’ve seen some some things I never thought I’d see
In my life

All the little reasons that get me down
They mean nothing
I fear the good times may be gone forever

Will we cry
Will we laugh
Will this moment be our last

Will we hate
Will we fight
Seek the truth
Or live a lie

Or will we just learn
Cause we’ve known it all along
Will we keep on re-living September
Or will we learn

September the eleventh
I did what I’ve always done

I took the subway to Manhattan
Rode the train like everyone

Oh I saw the sky filled with sunlight
And the city that had given me my wings
Come tumbling down

All around me the jigsaw pieces they fell
Broken diamonds

You may be gone
But you are not forgotten

Will we laugh
Will we cry
Just give up
Or go down fighting

Will we hate
Or Refuse
Will we love
What will we choose

Or will we just learn
Cause we’ve known it all along
Will we keep on re-living September

Will we learn
Will we learn
Will we give love in return

Will we hate
Or refuse
Will we love
What will we choose
Or will we just learn
Cause we’ve known it all along

Will we keep on
Re-living September
Or will we learn
