You got to taste sometimes don't you?
Of that tender kind of connection
That reaches deep and holds you,
By the bones it fills you up
But do you get enough?

I need a bridge in the city of rivers
I need a bridge to run across with my face wide open
Nothing held back in my heart
It could be wide enough for two
It could be wide enough for you
On the other side

So hard to say what is out there
In confusion impossibly clear
I have a wanting ache
And you have the steady gaze of a snake

I need a bridge in the city of rivers
I need a bridge to run across with my face wide open
Nothing held back in my heart
It could be wide enough for two
It could be wide enough for you

I will be waiting for you
On the other side

    General CommentThe chorus feels really free and in love, but the verses have always felt more ominous to me. The 'wanting ache' line and first verse make me think about addiction, and when she describes him as having 'the steady gaze of a snake' it makes me picture him about to pounce. I find the last line really chilling: 'I will be waiting for you on the other side.' The other side is probably death, which makes me think that the Bridge has been a way to die all along, and she wants him to die with her (it could be wide enough for two), possibly by suicide. I really don't know for sure, but that's what the song sounds like to me. I'm probably wrong.
