"What About the Bond [et le Lien Alors]" as written by and Bruce Cockburn....
disharmony gives way
to mute helplessness
not enough communication
too much not expressed

it's all to easy
to let go of hope
to think there's nothing worth saving
and let it all go up in smoke

what about the the bond

what about the mystical unity
what about the bond
sealed in the loving presence of the Father

of the institutions
that should give a frame to work in
got to find our own solutions

pressure from all sides
got to head right down the centre
in the love that will abide

what about the bond
(repeat chorus)

man and woman
made to be one flesh
nobody said it would be easy
but can we let go now and fail the test?

now you could say
life is full of moving on
but do you want the pain that's
already been spent
to all be wasted -- c'mon
