Ralph McTell

Ralph McTell - Bridge Of Sighs

You say, too much water

Has gone under the bridge by now.

I say that bridges

Are all that's left for us now.

Each side of the river, the city is burning

There is no turning back.

Oh, what else can I say? There's no loss of face

And nothing's betrayed, there's no disgrace

In meeting on the bridge.

You'll have to trust me, don't bring any,

Any of them so-called friends

And everyone's talking, they soon start shouting

And we all know how that one ends.

You say the daylight, I say the night-time

Let's meet in the twilight zone.

Don't be afraid you'll come to no harm

Nothing's betrayed, we'll both be unarmed

And both of us must come alone.

A Bridge of sighs for the compromise

Does anyone get what they really wish?

A handshake, a heartbreak, maybe a parting with a kiss.

Ah, don't be afraid, there is no disgrace

No one's betrayed, there's no loss of face

In meeting on the bridge.

Repeat chorus

The river runs red, the air is smoking

And the flames burn higher and higher.

The numbers of dead are like beads of sweat

And they can never put out this fire.

The ones who are left must not be swept away

On this river of death, so I'll meet you halfway

There is no disgrace, what more can I say?

There's no loss of face

We must meet on the bridge.
