9/11 Song: New York Make-Believe

On this 10-year anniversary of one of the most horrific events in modern memory, I thought I’d offer, for anyone who might care to hear, a song I wrote about it.

I happened to be living in NY at the time and so got a strong taste of the whole thing, the smell of destruction and of smoke, the grey dusty war-zone feel of the streets near ground zero after the tragedy, the general feeling of soberness in the city, and yet the great strength and sense of community that occurred.

This song was written on a piano at NYU in a building that had overlooked the twin towers, and is a reflection of my own feelings.

  1. Dear Clayton,

    I just found you through YouTube (I love your version of “Adam-Ondi-Ahman, and put a link to it on my blog today)~ We live in KC, MO, so we’re practically neighbors! This song is very touching, and you are very talented and “real.”

    I’ll be back to peek around some more!

    Love and blessings,

    Marqueta Graham
