my lyricsbox
You say, too much water has gone under the bridge by now
I say that bridges are all that's left for us now
Each side of the river, the city is burning, there is no turning back
Oh, what else can I say? There's no loss of face
And nothing's betrayed, there's no disgrace
In meeting on the bridge.

You'll have to trust me, don't bring any
Any of them so-called friends
And everyone's talking, they soon start shouting
And we all know how that one ends
You say the daylight, I say the night-time
Let's meet in the twilight zone
Don't be afraid you'll come to no harm
Nothing's betrayed, we'll both be unarmed
And both of us must come alone.

A Bridge of sighs for the compromise
Does anyone get what they really wish?
A handshake, a heartbreak, maybe a parting with a kiss
Ah, don't be afraid, there is no disgrace
No one's betrayed, there's no loss of face
In meeting on the bridge.

You'll have to trust me, don't bring any
Any of them so-called friends
And everyone's talking, they soon start shouting
And we all know how that one ends
You say the daylight, I say the night-time
Let's meet in the twilight zone
Don't be afraid you'll come to no harm
Nothing's betrayed, we'll both be unarmed
And both of us must come alone.

The river runs red, the air is smoking
And the flames burn higher and higher
The numbers of dead are like beads of sweat
And they can never put out this fire
The ones who are left must not be swept away
On this river of death, so I'll meet you halfway
There is no disgrace, what more can I say?
There's no loss of face
We must meet on the bridge.
