Bridge Of Sighs (McTell Ralph)

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. 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.
