They say the time has come for us
To start again
I believe that's true
They say the time has come for us

To make amends
And I believe that too
Why tell me why
Is it all so hard to find

I pray each day
For a perfect world
Where children are laughing
Lovers romancing

Time stands still
A perfect world
There's nothing to cry for
No one to die for

In a perfect world
Our father's father says that
Things were better then

How easy they forgot
On every page in every book of history
A thousand tears were shed
There's hope in our hearts

And love in our eyes
Day after day I keep searching
Why tell me why
Is it all so hard to find

I pray each day
For a perfect world,
Show me the way I'm to understand
That you prove to myself that I'm a man

And you love, but you can't look from above
Travel cross the seven seas to be with you
Passion and desire will see me through
The road that I must travel will wind and curl
You're all I ever needed in a perfect world

    My InterpretationThrough all the horrors that history tells us are the human experience, spending one's time with a lover and your children is to enjoy the "perfect world".

    General CommentI forgot what a great song this is !
    whole Bridge album here:…

    I love rhythm and the synth-timbale rolls.
    It's an existential quest, a pilgrimage, a realization that the present world is fallen and marred beyond repair.

    What are they whispering in the background in the final stanzas?
    Sounds like "believe in Love" or "believe in luck" (but perhaps it far more sinister...)
