​Bridges

This song is by Tony Bennett and appears on the album Life Is Beautiful (1975) and on the album Tony Bennett Sings for Lovers (2006).

This song is a cover of "Travessia" by ​Milton Nascimento.
I have crossed a thousand bridges
In my search for something real
There were great suspension bridges
Made like spider webs of steel
There were tiny wooden trestles
And there were bridges made of stone
I have always been a stranger
And I've always been alone

There's a bridge to tomorrow
There's a bridge from the past
There's a bridge made of sorrow
That I pray will not last
There's a bridge made of colors
In the sky high above
And I think that there must be
Bridges made out of love

I can see her in the distance
On the rivers of a shore
And her hands reach out longing
As my own have done before
And I call across to tell her
Where I believe the bridge must lie
And I'll find it, yes, I'll find it
If I search until I die

Then the bridge is between us
We'll have nothing to say
We will run through the sunlight
And she'll meet me half way
There's a bridge made of colors
In the sky high above
And I'm certain that somewhere
There's a bridge made out of love
Love!
