Whatever you must get across
The bridge the bridge will take you
And however you’ll be better off
Cross here and it shall make you
And whatever reasons you may have
And whatever season it may be

To hell with the current
Heaven please
Never wet my feet

But whatever you’ve been walking on
A bridge you may find broken
And will you turn away or set upon
The rocks and depths they’re soaked in?
And whatever reasons you may have
I implore you never utter this:

To hell with the current
Heaven please
Never wet my feet

Notes
This week’s song is about the bridges we take in our lives. Bridges take us from one place to another, across obstacles and over difficult passes. A bridge can also be a shortcut. Sometimes it’s okay to take shortcuts, but other times we are confronted with moments when there isn’t a bridge in sight, or the bridge we hoped to cross is broken down. What do we do? Do we turn back for fear of the obstacle, for fear of getting our feet wet? Or do we forge ahead? If it wasn’t already clear, this is all metaphorically speaking… by the way.
