This was actually more song lyrics, to a song that has not happened (yet). Makes much more sense to me as a song, but it personally hits me powerfully when I get near this one. It is a random collection of different people and events tied together when I traveled through Europe right after 9/11.

Scaling up and down these vacant walls
well I cannot seem to see
my own foreign hands waving
right in front of me
 
All alone on a warm dark night
asking, well do you know where?
For where can he be going? but it is all right,
It’s just alright now
This laughter, this laughter is mine – I share it now
 
Surely you can see me
Under an altered night sky
Waiting for the wings
Red Sun in the City,
Red Sun in the City
 
This Roman kingdom shines
forms a matchless freedom
where two thousand birds fray
Traveling above me, swirling;
He must be laughing now
 
Somewhere above in the distance
Back together again
Time alone back on the big land
Shared laughter with my friend
 
And in the vanished evening
Can she feel this far away?
Does she stand alone in gentle darkness?
It’s simply not for me to say
 
Well surely you can see me
Under an altered night sky
Waiting for the wings
Red Sun in the City,
Red Sun in the City
