Sky of memory and shadow

Tuesday, 11 September, 2018

Released in 2002, The Rising was believed to have been based on Bruce Springsteen’s reflections in the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 terror attacks on New York City. The album’s main themes are crisis and community, faith, family and friendship.

Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)
Sky of memory and shadow (a dream of life)
Your burnin’ wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life
