i heard the church bells from afar,
but we found each other in the dark.
and when the smoke does finally pass
we will rise above all the ash.

cause we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
at last.

so bright, the flames burned in our hearts,
that we found each other in the dark.
like beasts, out in the wilderness
we are fighting to survive and convalesce.

but we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
we're gonna live, we're gonna live, we're gonna live
like the rest.

through the black star-less water
and the cold lonely air
on the rough, restless seas
the vessel in deep disrepair
and the swans they started singing
but then oh, rejoice!
i can still hear your voice.

then i heard the church bells from afar
but we found each other in the dark.

    beautiful is an understatement. there's so much power in that one part, it gives me chills with the change on the word "rejoice."

    i had some trouble with the rest of the bridge, but i'll post the corrections if anyone has them or if they're posted in the cover booklet.
