The Bridge (Elton John)

The Bridge Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin I've seen the bridge and the bridge is long And they built it high and they built it strong Strong enough to hold the weight of time Long enough to leave some of us behind chorus: And every one of us has to face that day Do you cross the bridge or do you fade away And every one of us that ever came to play Has to cross the bridge or fade away Standing on the bridge looking at the waves Seen so many jump, never seen one saved On a distant beach your song can die On a bitter wind, on a cruel tide [repeat chorus] And the bridge it shines Oh cold hard iron Saying come and risk it all Or die trying [repeat chorus]
