Just when you think,
Hope is lost
And giving up
Is all you got,
Blue turns black,
Your confidence is cracked,
There seems no turning back from here

Sometimes there isn't an obvious explanation
While the holiest hearts can feel the strongest palpitations

That's when you can build a bridge of light,
That's what turns the wrong so right
That's when you can't give up the fight

That's when love turns nighttime into day,
That's when loneliness goes away,
That's why you gotta be strong tonight,

Only love can build us a bridge of light

When your feet are made of stone
And you're convinced that you're all alone
Look at the stars, instead of the dark
You'll find your heart shines like the sun

Let's not let our anger get us lost
And the need to be right comes with way too high a cost

That's when love can build a bridge of light
That's what turns the wrong so right
That's when you know it's worth the fight

That's when love turns nighttime into day
That's when loneliness goes away,
That's why you gotta be strong tonight
'Cause only love can build us a bridge of light

Deep breath, take it on the chin
But don't forget to let the love back in

That's when love can build a bridge of light
That's what turns the wrong so right
That's when you can't give up the fight

That's when love turns nighttime into day,
That's when loneliness goes away
That's when you gotta be strong tonight
'Cause only love can build us a bridge of light

Only love can build us a bridge of light.
Of light~
Of light~

    Keep holding on. This song is about not fighting because hate is, and equals darkness, while love is light. I first saw this song in Happy Feet Two and that totally embraces the meaning of the song. Watch it on YouTube or get the movie, buy the track or listen to the preview, doesn't matter. This is the best sing Pink ever wrote.

    It's about surviving domestic violence. It's about getting through it, healing, and finding a healthy new love. You can't give up, you can't lose hope. When you take it on the chin, get back up, turn your back to the pain, find the guiding stars to lead you out of the dark and the pain and into loves healing light.

    To me the song is reminding people that love helps us to carry on and that with every horrible moment you will seek a good opportunity, the song also means you must believe in yourself and you'll go far dongle anyone get you down as it will just make you feel less confident. This song also indicates that light will Shine on us and gives us that extra boost to help us get up and carry on in life overall I think this song has. Very powerful meaning to it.
