"Building Better Bridges" Lyrics [edit]
by listener | from the album Wooden Heart
 

Our heart burns broken at the ends, they fail us, keep building
my lungs are wax inside my ribs, youíre burning, well Iím breathing
this back breaks walked on from carrying friends, canít stop now, still working
your lifeís like rain drops on my tongue, I believe you, keep raining
and itís alright, itís alright, we are not right now complete
and Iím alright, youíre gonna be alright, we might never be complete
but the water keeps rising, itís rising, everybody get into the water
and hold each others hands and lives, letís all push our hearts together....
weíre gonna leave these shores right now, be everything weíve never been
but you gotta swear to promise that weíll never go back again, ever again
and weíre not just islands lying beside each others shorelines
weíre all bound with veins and hopes, we are not each others ghosts
our hearts are abridged, let's build bridges to each other
so this river wonít take us under
filled with monsters and goblins, they keep dragging the bottom
our life is a bridge, letís build bridges to each other
and pray we donít go under, oh these careless waters

Iím trying not to confuse: being used, with giving all I am
by: being used, and giving everything I have, all I am
so Iíll build a bridge with hollow bones filled with hollow teeth
inside a hollow heart, with the insides carved
and let the blood in these veins freeze
let the water in these veins freeze and break and flood the dam
we are all we have, this is all we need, hold on it may never end
and I might have to drink my teeth again if I wash up on the coast
so Iíll build a bridge with all thatís left, & not make any more new ghosts
show me your life, wide and bright, I hope that patience fills the seams
keep whatís inside, dry and right, you arch the frame Iíll span the beams
our lives are a bridge for us to give, I want to build a better bridge
from every wrong weíve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?
cause one day weíre gonna close our eyes for death or rest
and abandon ourself, this weak mind and breath
and the columns we made, and roots we grew down deep
will be pulled and gathered in to firewood, and burnt for heat
but when the tension shifts, and these braces turn
Iíll try and build a better bridge
and when all our piers burn, and the hinges miss
Iím gonna build a better bridge
our hearts are abridged, letís build bridges to each other
so we donít take ourselves under

Our heart burns broken at the ends, they fail us, keep building
my lungs are wax inside my ribs, youíre burning, Iím still breathing
this back breaks walked on carry friends, canít stop now, still working
your lifeís like rain drops on my tongue, I believe you, keep raining
our lives are a bridge for us to give, I want to build a better bridge
from every wrong weíve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?
our hearts are abridged, letís build bridges to each other
so this river wonít take us under, so we donít take ourselves under
our lives are a bridge, letís build bridges to each other
and pray we donít go under, oh these careless waters
our lives are a bridge for us to give, I want to build a better bridge
from every wrong weíve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?
our lives are a bridge for us to give, I want to build a better bridge
from every wrong weíve done to each other, if I forgive will you forgive?
our hearts are abridged, letís build bridges to each other
so this river wonít take us under, so we donít take ourselves under
