Where are you darlin'?
When my moon is risin'
And your sun is shinin' down

What are you doin'?
Are you missin' me
The way that I'm missin' you now?

The river goes on and on
And the sea that divides us is a
Temporary one
And the bridge will bring us back together

What are you doin'?
Goin' down into Soho as I
Take my rest tonight

What are you doin'?
Are you busy with your world?
Well, I wish you were busy with mine

The river goes on and on
And the sea that divides us is a
Temporary one
And the bridge will bring us back together

The river goes on and on
And the sea that divides us is a
Temporary one
And the bridge will bring us back together

Don't you know that
The river goes on and on
And the sea that divides us is a
Temporary one
And the bridge will bring us back together

Don't you know that
The river goes on and on
And the sea that divides us is a
Temporary one
And the bridge will bring us back together

This whole reconvening of this five people
Was kind of a, an organic thing
I had asked Mick to play drums
On a solo album I was working on, still working on actually
But, one thing led to another and
Suddenly there we were in the studio saying
"Gee, this feels pretty good", isn't that weird?

That is pretty weird
It was weird actually
And that brought us to this point
So we thought we would do a song that
We had been working together at that time
And it's called Bleed to Love Her

    My InterpretationI'm surprised no one has commented on this song.

    This is one of my favorites; it reminds me of when my first 'real' girlfriend and I split and the glimmer of hope I had that we would get back together someday and live happily ever after. I don't know anything else about this song, I've looked online and can't find anything.

    I assume this is Christine singing about a similar situation, or possibly being away from home from everyone she knows and missing them dearly.

    General CommentThis song can be about two people who are physically far apart, possibly continents because of the 'sea that divides us' because the "Moon is risin', and your Sun is shinin' down" they are in drastically different time zones and cannot share time the same. They miss their partner and wonder now with the time they are apart if they miss them the same. He or she yearns to be physically close to that person, but the current situation doesn't allow it. But the song points out that the 'bridge will bring us back together', meaning one day they should see each other.
