(morrison)The river’s too wide now for crossingThe waters rush too loud for talkingWe never build bridges for walking’cause the river’s too wideA gentle stream once flowed between usBut love could cross it easilyTill stormy skies brought bitter teardropsAnd made that stream a raging riverCome between you and meThe river’s too wide now for crossingThe waters rush too loud for talkingWe never build bridges for walkingThere’s no getting to the other sideThe river’s too wide now for crossingThe current goes too deep for mendingIt looks like an unhappy ending’cause the river’s too wideGood lessons learned are not forgottenWe gave up love to save our prideNext time I’m faced with rising watersI’ll build a bridge of love and kindnessReaching to the other sideThe river’s too wide now for crossingThe waters rush too loud for talkingWe never build bridges for walkingThere’s no getting to the other sideThe river’s too wide now for crossingThe current goes too deep for mendingIt looks like an unhappy ending’cause the river’s too wide
