Ships & Bridges

Don’t tell me not to hold my breath
Don’t tell me not to wait for a death do us part
Because you’ve captured my heart
Like the moon in the universe trapped by the earth
It travels ’round in a circle every day since the birth of gravity
That’s what you’re doing to me

And, I long to be
Your ship out at sea
I long to be
The bridge that carries you safely across

Lay a nickel on the railroad tracks
Wait a little bit that nickel is flattened by a train
That’s my kind of pain
Like a blackbird sittin’ on a white fence post
I’d compliment you; I’d say you’re the most of anything
And, for you I’d sing

That I long to be
Your ship out at sea
I long to be
The bridge that carries you safely across

Nothing is made, nothing disappears
Everything we’ve saved has been around for
Thousands upon thousands upon thousands of year

So, if I send you kisses on the waves of the wind
You may not feel them, but I’m certain you’d receive
Those kisses from me

And, I long to be
Your ship out at sea
I long to be
The bridge that carries you safely across
I’d hold you safely across
