A Bridge To Somewhere

Itís like a bubble has been burst,
Like we're marching in reverse,
Heading straight from bad to worse,
Going nowhere
But though a lotta milk's been spilled,
A lotta hopes and dreams been killed,
Instead of tearing down,
Let's build a bridge to somewhere.
Build a bridge to somewhere,
Somewhere, somehow.
Build a bridge to somewhere now.

There is a place in every town
All boarded up and tumbledown,
Where all the folks just hang around,
Going nowhere.
The neighborhood with the rundown heart.
Pick up some wood from the lumber mart.
Then grab what tools you've got
And start a bridge to somewhere.
Build a bridge to somewhere,
Somewhere, somehow.
Build a bridge to somewhere now.

Build a bridge (no matter how)
Build a bridge (no matter where)
Build a bridge (from any here)
Build a bridge (to any there)

Build a bridge to somewhere,
Somewhere, somehow.
Build a bridge to somewhere now.

I got my troubles, just like yours,
Seems every time it rains it pours,
And yet we stand on separate shores,
Going nowhere.
You know we can't be satisfied
Until we're working side by side
And build across the great divide
A bridge to somewhere.
Build a bridge to somewhere,
Somewhere, somehow.
Build a bridge to somewhere now.

Build a bridge (from heart to heart)
Build a bridge (from creed to creed)
Build a bridge (that joins us all)
Build a bridge (it's all we need)

Build a bridge to somewhere,
Somewhere, somehow.
Build a bridge to somewhere now.
