Bridge Lyrics

Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Bridge Theme (1:55)
[Instrumental]
2. Across The Land (4:07)
We're born wild and free
And everything seems to make sense
But the trouble starts
As soon as man tries to make amends

From times of hardship to times of bliss
We ponder over the same old questions
Until we understand life is...

A way that twists and turns
The fire that always burns
It's the riddle no one solves
Around which the world revolves

It's an endless walk uphill
Until fear submits to will
It's our plans gone out of hand
A wild flight across the land

It's a rapid journey
And wherever it may lead
We're all just passengers
That don't know who's in the driver's seat

From times of hardship to times of bliss
We ponder over the same old questions
Until we understand life is...

A way that twists and turns
The fire that always burns
It's the riddle no one solves
Around which the world revolves

It's an endless walk uphill
Until fear submits to will
It's our plans gone out of hand
A wild flight across the land

I read all those good books, that claim to hold the key
But at last they all just made no sense to me
Behind walls of science, moral, faith or spirituality
No matter where you hide life catches up with you eventually

It's the twinkle in her eye
A train that passed you by
It's the love you left behind
And the sense you could not find

A system overload
A path that leads abroad
It's a chance you did not use
The hand that you refused

A way that twists and turns...
3. Juliet (5:36)
What a happy couple
These two used to be
Just like Romeo and Juliet
In perfect harmony

See them now...

Every secret wish he ever had
She read from his eyes
And so did he with hers
To her great delight
Such true luck don't come often
But when it comes, then it comes

See them now...
Take a look at them now

In her eyes, in her eyes
There was all he desired
For a love that would last forever and a day

On their way to heaven
Somehow they both lost track
Just a few steps off the main road
But enough to not find a way back

See them now...

His sensitivity she loved
Did last just for a while
So did her bedroom voice
And her Sunday smile
Her true face doesn't show often
But when it shows, then it shows

See them now...
Take a look at them now

In her eyes, in her eyes
There was all he desired
For a love that would last forever and a day

In her eyes, in her eyes
He sees all he despises
As all her disguises
Got lost along the way

Romeo is bleeding
While Juliet gladly smiles
'Cause only when he's bleeding
Juliet feels alright

In her eyes, in her eyes
There was all he desired
For a love that would last forever and a day

In her eyes, in her eyes
He sees all he despises
As all her disguises
Got lost along the way

Romeo is bleeding
While Juliet gladly smiles
'Cause only when he's bleeding
Juliet feels alright

She knows that she can kill him
With just a word or two
So the last thing that he heard
Was her voice saying "I love you"
4. Travelling Shoes (1:50)
My dear old friend, I hope you will forgive
If you feel left alone, if you feel left alone

We had been friends for too long
To be anything but that
And that's a thing I should have known

A funny couple we must have seemed, you and I
I was trying so hard to fall in love with you

But you had your travelling shoes already on
While I was so obviously still wearing her tattoo...

My dear old friend, I hope you will forgive
If you're running from me, then please don't run too far

We've been friends for too long
To ever let that go
So I hope, this is still what we are...
5. Driven (4:49)
I've been roaming about the streets of New York City
I've been strolling down the beaches of South France
I've been to the desert, I've been to Scandinavia

Some have it all but don't see what they're given
Some always lose but still they keep on trying
I wish that I could have that gift of feeling happy
Even if inside you really feel like crying

God knows I've tried hard to forgive her
God knows I've tried hard to forget her
God knows I've loved, God knows I've given
God knows I'm mad, God knows I'm driven

I tried to hide away in lonely places
Tried to disappear in crowded city streets
I've been seeking comfort in too many cold embraces

Some still feel the warmth upon their skin
Long after the sun's already gone
I wish that I could have that gift of feeling rich
Even if you hardly have enough to get along

God knows I've tried hard to forgive her
God knows I've tried hard to forget her
God knows I've loved, God knows I've given
God knows I'm mad, God knows I'm driven

Wherever I've been going to
Trying to escape from you
You've been there
You've been waiting there...
6. If You Were Still Mine (5:31)
I'd go working in daytime
Instead of staying out all night
And if I felt bad and sick
I'd pretend I'm alright

Every day I'd bring you flowers
I'd go walking your dog
I would do it all right this time

I wouldn't mind doing the dishes
I would not let you wait
Would play your favourite records
And pretend they're just great

And if you like I'd sell my car
And ride a bike instead
I would do it all right this time

And I swear I'd still be right here in twenty-five years from now
And I'd mean it when I say I love you, and I'd let it show
Each day I'm alive I would only live to make you feel fine
All that and more I would do
If you were still mine...

I'd join you on those parties
And pretend I have fun
I'd see the bright side of things
Even if there is none

And I would swallow all my fear
To not make you concerned
I would do it all right this time

And when you're lying to yourself
I'd notice but wouldn't tell
Whenever you're fooling yourself
I'd let you fool me as well

So if my eyes were your mirror
I'd swear you'd like what you see
I would do it all right this time

And I swear I'd still be right here in twenty-five years from now
And I'd mean it when I say I love you, and I'd let it show
Each day I'm alive I would only live to make you feel fine
All that and more I would do
If you were still mine...
7. Ten Years Late (4:15)
Around the world in just one day
Is way too fast, or so they say
But whenever we're together
We can easily go round twice

You're all I need and more
All I've been hoping for
But we both know it is
Not our turn this time

Up and down at rapid speed
Inside out I'm turned indeed
As soon as the command is yours
My whole world seems to change

You shine much brighter than
All the stars, but then again
Alas, it seems you came here
Just a bit too late

In another time, and in another place
Surely you'd be mine, but not here and now
I wish you would understand
You're ten years late
I wish you would understand
You're ten years late

And if you were the only rose
That stands in bloom amid all the weed
Still that won't help, and even if
In this world of willows, in which we live
You were the only giant
That won't change a single thing

In another time, and in another place
Surely you'd be mine, but not here and now
I wish you would understand
You're ten years late
I wish you would understand
You're ten years late
8. Not This Time (6:46)
Bound to a vow that you once gave
To keep that secret 'til they take you to grave
To all the world you show a smiling face

But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell
But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell

Twenty years have passed and nothing has changed
For all the world to see your life's well arranged
You've never said a word to anyone

But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell
But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell

So was he worth your loyalty ?
So was he worth the pain you feel ?
Will you ever see
That your bravery is just slavery ?
So don't be afraid of life
It's good that you're alive
You're still alive

The fault for which you pay is not your own
The silence that you chose turns you into stone
Yours you make the blame, that should be his

But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell
But inside of you pain burns like hell
Only breaking the silence will break the spell

So was he worth your loyalty ?
So was he worth the pain you feel ?
Will you ever see
That your bravery is just slavery ?
So don't be afraid of life
It's good that you're alive
And life goes on...

Why can't you forget the shame
Why don't you call him by his name
And point your finger straight at him
Don't be afraid no more

He can't break you
Don't let him break you
He won't break you
Not this time, not this way...
9. Puppet Show (3:59)
[Instrumental]
10. Carousel (5:11)
I hope one day I will grow out of this
Then I will leave this battlefield

Good or bad depends on your point of view
And I can see things from both sides
Just one more classic case of catch-22
Things don't have a simple truth

So you ask where this is leading me
Only I don't have an answer yet

Seeing things black and white is for the weak
I'm strong enough for shades of grey
While searching for the perfect compromise
I am driven to despair

So my thoughts are spinning around
For I know my problem well
And I wonder, will I ever get
Out of this carousel

You are trying in vain
To reach me with your hands
But all that I can say
Is I hope you understand

So I am caught between the chairs again
While everybody else does fine

It's just my nature to move back and forth
Always trying not to offend
I cannot decide whether to refuse
Or to reach out for your helping hand

So my thoughts are spinning around
For I know my problem well
And I wonder, will I ever get
Out of this carousel

You are trying in vain
To reach me with your hands
But all that I can say
Is I hope you understand

Meanwhile I'm trying to make up my mind
Feeling like I'm paralysed
What's the sense of it all, is it...

Because of you and I
Because of fear
Or just because of all
That I wish to have near
It's about really stupid things
But they keep growing until
They seem to tear me apart

So my thoughts are spinning around
For I know my problem well
And I wonder, will I ever get
Out of this carousel

You are trying in vain
To reach me with your hands
You ask for explanations
Until things make sense
Well, I don't have any
So all that I can say is
I hope you understand

It is because you and I
Because of fear
Because of all
That I wish to have near

It's about really stupid things
Of no major size
But they keep on growing
Until a part of me dies
11. Harbour (5:10)
Your life and you, always had different plans
And never shared one point of view
So no one even comes halfway near you
In terms of making their life a mess

My life and me, we've never been best friends
But somehow learnt to coexist
Why be afraid of things getting even worse
They're already as bad as can be

But after all, what it boils down to is
Whatever we need is right here by our side

When the rain goes down
When the rain goes down
When it pours out over you
Then I will harbour you
Until the sun comes out

It seems you and I
We were made for each other
Though naturally we'd both disagree

If you take the elevator
Then I will walk the stairs
If you choose coffee
I'll have tea

But after all, what it boils down to is
Whatever we need is right here by our side

When the rain goes down
When the rain goes down
When it pours out over you
Then I will harbour you
Until the sun comes out
12. Bridge (6:28)
I know that you are worth waiting for
But I don't have the time
I've been waiting for years already
But that didn't make you mine

My clock is ticking faster
Than I ever thought it would
So I can't wait for your love
God knows I wish I could

Right there in the mist before me
I see its ghostly scheme
Stretching cast-iron fingers
Upon a blood-red stream

This bridge has been the hope of many
For just as many it has been the end
Now I'm the next in line to lay my life
Faithfully into this hand

I know that you are worth waiting for
But I don't have the time
I've been waiting for years already
But that didn't make you mine

My clock is ticking faster
Than I ever thought it would
So I can't wait for your love
God knows I wish I could

There's a bridge ahead that spans a river wide
If you don't dare the walk, you won't reach my side

If you walk that bridge, the bridge may break
But that's a risk that you will have to take

If it breaks, the river takes you in
And a whole new journey will begin

There's a secret down in that river deep
But those who find it don't come back to speak
