Lyrics

Well I woke up this morning, the bridge was still there
Thank God for small favors
‘Cause I had a dream that she’d crumbled in air
Despite my best efforts to save her
So I put on the coffee, I poured me a cup
I read through the papers until you woke up
I tried to remember when that was enough

This river runs deep as it flows out to sea
It cuts a fierce channel between you and me
There’d be no way across, no way around
Lest these bridges come down

We sank our foundation a long time ago
Yeah, we worked with our hands both together
Laid the strongest of tires on the pillars below
Thought they would last us forever
But time tests the limits of the load we can bear
And each rusty girder’s in need of repair
The paint chips away, surface lays bare

And the river runs deep as it flows out to sea
It cuts a fierce channel between you and me
There’d be no way across, no way around
Lest these bridges come down

What should we do
To see this through
Men were amazed
Between me and you

‘Cause the river runs deep as it flows out to sea
It cuts a fierce channel between you and me
There’d be no way across, no way around
Lest these bridges come down
Comes down

I woke up this morning
The bridge was still there
Thank heaven for small favors
