Olivia Newton-John – The River’s Too Wide lyrics

The river's too wide now for crossing
The waters rush too loud for talking
We never build bridges for walking
'cause the river's too wide

A gentle stream once flowed between us
But love could cross it easily
Till stormy skies brought bitter teardrops
And made that stream a raging river
Come between you and me

The river's too wide now for crossing
The waters rush too loud for talking
We never build bridges for walking
There's no getting to the other side

The river's too wide now for crossing
The current goes too deep for mending
It looks like an unhappy ending
'cause the river's too wide

Good lessons learned are not forgotten
We gave up love to save our pride
Next time i'm faced with rising waters
I'll build a bridge of love and kindness
Reaching to the other side

The river's too wide now for crossing
The waters rush too loud for talking
We never build bridges for walking
There's no getting to the other side

The river's too wide now for crossing
The current goes too deep for mending
It looks like an unhappy ending
'cause the river's too wide
