The Bridge

Janis Ian

The bridge that spans the gap between our souls
continues through the night from pole to pole
and hope is like a light
that shines in endless flight
spilling over into darkness, and making is wholly

free to span the oceans of our lives
Feeling only love's emotion, suspended throug the skies
and when we meet again,
remember me from when
I was crawling in the darkness
You were holding to the sky

I want to get back to the city
where the neon lights shine pretty
all day long
I'm giving my heart to the rock & roll
of the city gonna save my soul
You are the captain, and the master of my soul

Long ago the loneliness of time,
spinning onward into emptiness,
With no reason and no rhyme, said
When two lovers meet,
the heart begins to beat
just like the rhythm of the street

Sad serenaders keep the time
Midnight party makers move in line
but when we meet again,
remember me from when
I was falling into darkness,
and you owned the sky

I want to get back to the city
where the neon lights shine pretty
all day long
I'm giving my heart to the rock & roll
of the city gonna save my soul
You are the captain, and the master of my soul
