The Magic Lanterns – The Bridge lyrics

The bridge that we built is falling down
Less of a bind more of a whimper

What's left on either bank is a slowly crumbling start
Distance is the river that broke this bridges heart

The bridge was built naively without so much as a plan
But believe me when I say the work was done with honest hands

Oh she's gone
Oh she's gone

With time the bridge its strength no more to carry heavy loads
Which in convoy we passed over it along newly beaten roads

Oh she's gone
Oh she's gone

Oh she's gone
Oh she's gone

Oh she's gone
Oh she's gone

Oh she's gone
Oh she's gone...
