I was young, so was she.
Life didn't stay a mystery for very long...
We could do no wrong.
Then she called, said she was late.
So we took a little drive upstate an' took care of that...
Yeah, just took care of that.

But now I'm longin' back at some of my decisions,
Now that it's much too late to change...
How a father could have held his son.
If I could undo what's been done,
But I guess everyone is living,
With water and bridges.

Now my old man, he had it rough,
'Cause like his Daddy, when he drank too much,
He'd get mean, an' take it out on me.
So with angry words, I was gone.
I never even tried to go back home, the night he died.
Momma said he apologized.

Now I'm longin' back on some of my decisions,
Now that it's much too late to change...
How a father could have held his son.
If I could undo what's been done,
But I guess everyone is living,
With water and bridges.

[Instrumental break]

We could all go crazy from,
Things that only time can dull.
I guess that's why everyone is given,
Water and bridges.
Water and bridges.
Water and bridges.

[Instrumental fade]
