The bridge is swaying
And I’ll hold on and on
Holding on today, now

The bridge is swaying
And I’ll hold on and on
Fly, fly, fall away
Floating...
Fall, falling, falling, falling away
Oh-oh
Oo-oo

*breathing*

Oo-oo

    My InterpretationThis song is really quite beautiful. I always imagine that it is about a person dreaming about a loved one that they have lost. The dreamworld is like a bridge, high up in the mountains. It is fragile and could fall at any moment, but the person really wants to remain in this world, where they can be with their loved one.

    Yet the dream world is fragile and eventually they fall from it. The moment in the song when Anna's overdubbed vocals cry out 'falling' repeatedly, suggest the desperation of the person falling away from their lost one, back into reality, and the subdued outro is perhaps them waking, alone in the world, longing to go back to the bridge.
