Song lyrics- The Malfunction Room

The Bridge

The wind is softly blowin'
and I can hear a distant call.
Sometimes I stop to listen,
but there's no one the at all.
The sky is blue and gold,
ever changing in the light.
And I can feel the winter presence,
as the day fades into night.

High above a river bed
I watch the gorge below.
The rocky cliffs and waterfalls
from a million years ago.
And from a wooden bridge I watch
the sunset slowly fade.
And as the night descends again
I'm lost within its shade.

But the bridge is cold tonight.
The bridge is cold tonight.

And often have I wondered
through the sounds within the night.
The bridge not there below my feet
and that I had taken flight.
I circled wide my spirit free,
The shackles far below.
It did not seem to matter then,
I had nowhere to go.

But the bridge is cold tonight.
The bridge is cold tonight.

So many times I've wandered here
at the fading of the day.
So many times I've seen the night
as it carries me away.
So many times I've heard my name
as its whispered through the wind.
So many times I've wished in vain
the bridge was never there.

The bridge is cold tonight.
The bridge is cold tonight.
